Last week, Arpaio's racial profiling trial began. The trial is showcasing documented proof of Arpaio's heinous racial profiling activities. Witnesses are testifying to the racial profiling crimes committed by Arpaio and his ski-masked crew of volunteers. They are testifying that Arpaio's masked volunteers terrorized sleepy little Latino towns like Guadalupe. They stopped all Latino drivers during their "Suppression Sweeps." They singled out and harassed Latinos riding as passengers and left White drivers and passengers alone. They zip tied and harassed Latinos when they had proof of citizenship. They threw a pregnant citizen Latino mother against her car, belly first, brutally assaulting her. Arpaio even admitted his guilt by testifying his views that "dark skin.is the look of the Mexican illegal."
The trial evidence is clear. Arpaio and his masked volunteers are GUILTY of Racial Profiling. He admitted it himself.
The courts MUST find him GUILTY as charged. If they do not, then they are CONDONING his behavior. They are CONDONING Latinos being RACIALLY PROFILED. They are CONDONING Latinos being treated as SECOND-CLASS CITIZENS.
I've been reading some of the articles about Arpaio's Racial Profiling trial. It is clear that the right wing/Republican news sites and Republican Talk Radio are siding with Arpaio. I heard conservative talk radio host Bill Bennett say he doesn't believe it's racial profiling if Latinos "Fit the Profile." This is what most of their sites are saying. In other words, these Republicans are condoning Arpaio's tactics. They are CONDONING "Operation Wetback" all over again. They believe it is acceptable that Latino Citizens be singled out and harassed, zip tied and made to urinate in the streets or be thrown against cars when pregnant. They believe it is acceptable to be man-handled by ski-masked volunteers, hiding their identities.
I find this outrageous and unconscionable. This acceptance of the harassment of Latinos by Republican pundits and politicians is UNACCEPTABLE. WE LATINO AMERICANS WILL REMEMBER THEIR BEHAVIOR IN NOVEMBER.
Additionally, IF Arpaio is found NOT GUILTY, WE LATINOS MUST STAND UP and say:
. WE DO NOT CONDONE RACIAL PROFILING!
. ARPAIO IS GUILTY OF RACIAL PROFILING AS ARE HIS MASKED VOLUNTEERS
. WE WILL TELL ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS ARPAIO'S TACTICS, WE WILL REMEMBER WITH OUR VOTES IN NOVEMBER!!
