Guest Voz - Felix Jaure: Arpaio Running for Senator - Running from the District Attorney!
In a recent interview with a local news station, Maricopa County's Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced the possibility of running for the future vacant Senatorial seat of Sen. Kyl of Arizona. Arpio appeared quite confident of a victory, as he flirted with the possibility of bestowing upon his constituents, the honor, of accepting their proposal for him to run in the 2012 general election.
Arpaio seemed to be in full control of his destiny, untouched by the allegation's of 6,300 reported cases of Civil Rights violations against his Department, of which 1,828 have resulted in lawsuits against Maricopa county, costing the taxpayer approximately $50,000,000 in legal defence spending. The federal grand jury also is investigating Arpaio over abuse-of-power and his departments inappropriately use of 99 million dollars from two jail funds over the last eight years. Arpaio, much like the Titanic, seems unsinkable at the present time in his home state of Arizona. Has his reputation, placed him in a position, that's beyond the reach of the long arm of the law? Fearful of the possibility of an uprising in the State, the Justice Department appears to be reluctant, from aggressively pursuing an indictment against the Sheriff.
Is the term illegal, is illegal in reference to everyone that violates the law, or is there some type of amnesty for the chosen few. It appears that the blindfold on lady justice has temporarily been removed for the sake of Arpaio, by his nation wide group of supporters, and the scales which were formally used for judgement, are found to be inadequate for use in the balance of justice any longer.
