Because freedom can't protect itself
Do his job?
If the Obama Justice Department does not move against him, he should be consigned to the Hague and tried for human rights abuses. Why doesn't the executive director of the Arizona ACLU lead that call?
Telling a monster to "start doing his job" is like pleading with Hitler to please ease up on concentration camp inmates.

Way to go Sheriff Joe. You are now officially my new hero.
Listen to the lies and crap that this anti-American group known as the American Criminal Liberties Union spews. The first lie is--Undocumented inmates. Hey morons, how about calling them what they are--ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS from a third world cest pool bring their third world crap to our country.
Also the ACLU says that lawbreakers should be treated with respect and dignity. Are you kidding me? That is bullshit. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Hey Heriff Joe, give em' hell. Real patriotic Americans stand behind you 100%.
I bet you won't even post this anyway. But, I wish more law enforcement officers were like Sheriff Joe. Where I am from, if you roll through a stop sign you get a $130 ticket, but if you don't have insurance or a license to drive you get told to get one and that is it. Forgive me for being "politically incorrect" but almost everytime I hear about someone getting hit by a Mexican, it becomes a hit and run. Why is that I wonder? Oh yea, they are ILLEGAL and they don't have any insurance! I am tired of people these days saying prisoners derseve more rights or illegals derserve more. Are you crazy? Seriously, there is something wrong with you. And yes, I said YOU! I wish Sheriff Joe was the Sheriff of my town. I don't want to get hit by a person without any insurance, I want prisoners to be punished for killing people or stealing or fruad- whatever the case may be. I served this country prouldy and I have the right to say all of this just as anyone else does so I would like you to post this. If you would like to see who I am you can look me up on facebook- my name is Doug Kieler. I support Sheriff Joe and what he does.

The Way to go Sheriff Joe. Too bad there's not more sheriff's like him.
prisoners are no better than our soldiers overseas. when a person is convicted of a crime and sentenced, that person gave up his/her rights! and, further more, prisoners on death row should be executed within a resonable length of time; not years.
Please help the hard working women of Lafayette College. Six women have come forth to stop sexual harassment at the college. The pervert responsible for sexually harassing these women was sentenced to 18 months probation in a plea bargain. How could such a plea bargain be available this scares me. The man accused of the harassment is basically walking away untouched. He got his rocks off for years at these women’s expense. This man was put in a position to protect the college, its employees, and its students. Below are the local newspapers links to the articles. Please help these women return to there jobs. These women were scared to come forth because the man responsible carried a gun and must have had some kind of connection with college considering he worked there for 20 years. Lafayette is trying to sweep this under the rug and its working. I hope the ACLU can help these women and make it known that these type of actions will not just be swept under the table.
Doug - The person with whom you had an automobile accident mayor may not have been an illegal immigrant. You have no way to know. Perhaps s/he was scared or could not afford insurance. All that aside, what happened is not about giving prisoners more rights. It is about enforcing laws and court decisions that set out their rights. If a person's rights are void upon conviction, I think we could make a lot of money by organizing hunting parties with felons as prey.
As for quick execution, look at the number of people who have been released from Death Row after their innocence was proven. Not released on a technicality, but proven innocent.
sorry. I mixed two, similar posts. The last part of the previous post was a comment to unknown.
To finish my comment to Doug...If you have read the ACLU blogs, you will see that they believe in freedom of speech and do not appear to censor beyond the rules they give at the beginning. Your opinion is just as valuable as anyone else's. I just disagree with you. A wonderful country we have that we can disagree.
All of you who support Sheriff Joe:
Isn't it interesting that the ACLU you hate so much allows you to freely express your opinions...
...while there is strong evidence that the onging warrantless surveillance programs initiated by the former president and vice president censor and exercise prior restraint on political speech on the internet?
Call it "fusion centers gone rogue."
For your consideration:

Sheriff Joe is a hero. Thank God we are still a sovereign nation.
The Hague is illegal and without legitimacy. No American should ever have to worry about being subject to some international kangaroo court. How could you compare Hitler to Sheriff Joe?
Joe for President! Go to hell ACLU and illegal scumbag law breakers (just leave some Tacos, I like Tacos haha).
I love my country, but I am disgusted by the examples of blatant racism and abuses of human rights like this.
Sheriff Joe is an embarrassment.
Wow. that's all I can say. the comments left by many here are proof that there are still racists/bigots/idiots out there who pander to the big white government and the heaertless/thoughtless selfish code of morals set forth by many leaders. thanks for creating more hate, and more lies. you are "truly great Americans' as Hannity would say. you suck.
Sheriff Joe, You're the man! You rock. Hey liberals, once someone is convicted and sent to prison, they lose their rights. I remember this from some history course somewhere in my youth. Otherwise, what's the point of prison? "Freedom has to be earned"....
Who is being racists/bigots/idiots now? Those who pander to the big white government? Come on. Please do not ever forget it was those heartless/thoughtless selfish code of morals set forth by our founding fathers that gives you your voice today. I dare you to stop calling the kettle black and take a good look in the mirror. Not all is right in America but statements like that does not make your point better it just makes you look worse. Come on you can do better than that!
This rascism and bigotry mentioned on this board is due to the disgusting behavior of all corporate shills representing Americans (this means you McCain/Bush). This is what happens after Americans are repeatedly sold out by their representatives from BOTH parties. They have crossed the border illegally. Their criminal status is UNKNOWN, their mental problems are UNKOWN, their intent, be it hard working family supporter, or child pervert, is unknown. This Sheriff is a response to the Congresses swindling American labor in their qwest for the allmighty corporate dollar.
I would feel safe at night knowing someone like Sheriff Joe was looking out for me. Ever been robbed? Assaulted? Raped? Whatever the crime, the last thing a criminal ever thinks about is how they violate MY civil rights. Our country is overwrought with too many people who think they are entitled to what other people have and don't care what they have to do to get it. Sexual predators and child molesters are the worst form of humanity and once they cross the line, they LOSE their civil rights.
I support Sheriff Joe all the way.
Go Sheriff Joe wish we had someone like you here in Scotland to kick all the pakis oot
The ACLU is controlled by COLLECTIVISTS. That is why there is never any help for victims of "gangstalking". It's all being controlled by COLLECTIVISTS. Until they're removed....NOTHING is EVER going to change for us.
This man is doing a job nobody is willing to do. He's getting attacked for doing what's right! Where are the voices for our troops overseas? They are actually doing good for our county and not getting any sympathy for their living arrangements. Yet, some even feel justified in condemning our troops and sticking up for those being treated as criminals, that they are. They are people, yes, but criminals. There should always be consequences. Without consequences, criminals would forget too easily why they shouldn't break the laws once again. Its undeniable how our blurred views are on this issue has hurt our county, all citizens included. I fear for our next generation, who is expected to lead this country, who are being raised with no consequences for bad choices and are being instantly gratified. There is no respect and no responsibility for actions. We are teaching our children that someone's feelings (moral or not) are more dependable than truth. This man is one in few doing something dramatic for our country. It's obvious that more people agree with him. He gets about 87% of the votes! Go Sheriff. Keep standing up for what's right and thank you for not allowing the "feelers" to sway you.
I think we should give the poor "undocumented visitors" a nice soft bed to sleep in and super soft pillows and they shoud be in air conditioned cells during the summer months with good healthy nutritous food to eat. Maybe they should be given back rubs and massages to ease their sore backs from all the hard labor they do for us undesireable and cruel Americans.
No wait, maybe all of us ugly Americans should move up to... say, Montana, and let the undocumented visitors have all these other states, so they can live all by themselves. Then all the states like, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado will become joined to Mexico and it will be one big Mexico... just like the Mexico they have now, just bigger.
Yeah, that's right, like the freaked out stinking third world dump they call a country now!!!
Yeah right. ACLU should be happy as hell we Americans have fought, died and struggled throughout the years for this country so they can f*** it all up!!!
Joe was saving fuel and protecting the environment, and he didn't pollute the air with dangerous CO2 emmisions when he marched those undocumented visitors to tent city. He should be commended, he's trying to save the world. Give the guy a break.
You know, while I agree with what Joe is doing, he is going about it in the wrong way. Look at the number of people arrested as illegal, and some of that number is actual citizens and LEGAL immigrants on visas and work permits.
Oh, the muggers, robbers and such is why I own and train with weapons of various sorts, including the martial arts, so that I can fulfill my duty as a man to defend my family, friends and others.
My daughter broke the law and was in tent city for thanksgiving and christmas. It is such a shame the way we treat people who are in the system. If there is a hell, there will be a special place for sheriff joe and his cronies. Until you have first hand knowledge of what actually goes on in tent city, you should hold your praises of him. It is criminal what he does to inmates there. I am getting on in years but hope to see the day he gets his just due. And for those who support him you will change your mind if you ever find yourself in his custody.
Now nail this bastard under the Eighth Amendment for Degradation and inhuman treatment, for Chain-gangs Pink clothing rotten food, living conditions. The way to do this is take as many degrading pictures, and videos you can of his operations, and then let the pictures speak for themselves before a grand Jury, and or before the court. Them let him be sued, by everyone he violated. This arrogant bastard, needs to be retired, and the state of Arizona needs to be sued to allow this Violation of our bill or rights. Remember pictures Don't lie! The ACLU should do their Damm Job!
Did you all forget these are convicted criminals? They broke the law. They deserve their punishment as ordered by the court. If the punishment fits the crime they will be deterred from doing it again. If we go soft on criminals and give them all the creature comforts of home they truly aren't being punished.
If you want to cry human rights abuse why don't you spend more of your energy on places like China and North Korea? Or female genital mutilation in Africa? That's real torture.
If they didn't break the law they wouldn't have to worry about the punishment. If the punishment actually fits the crime they will be less likely to break the law again. I applaude Sheriff Joe for making jail uncomfortable for once.
You all need to focus your energy on places that actually torture people and violate their human rights like China and North Korea, or genital mutilation in Africa. That's real torture, not having to wear pink pajamas.
I support Sheriff Joe fully! He is a great lawman who does his job- which is to follow the laws of our land. ACLU has gone so far down the tubes, to bad! they could good. Arizona needs more men like him!
The ACLU is a club of commie pukes. Asswipes ClUb of American!
