The Arpaio publicity machine long ago fashioned the disarming "Sheriff Joe" moniker as a crafty way to subliminally and successfully insinuate a huckster into our lives. The "Joe" part particularly induces misplaced comfort and familiarity.

In fact, Mr. Arpaio is a self-created (with our taxes) celebrity, lacking the overriding concerns for Constitutional rights and due process which define a true lawman. He shares nothing with police chiefs who are appointed and retained based on their professional merits, not elected on the base appeal of outrageous, headline-grabbing stunts and TV commercials.
