Sheriff’s Arpaio’s Office Targeted Latinos, U.S. Says -

Arpaio's treatment of undocumented immigrants and the Hispanic community and his treatment of those incarcerated by him has been shameful while the right ,uberconservatives and Nativists in America and Fox news , CNN, GOP , Pat Buchanan , Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck etc. have held him up as one of America's heroes .

Sheriff Arpaio of Phoenix, Arizona, USA finally being censured for his illegal and racist actions.
Maybe there is hope for America ?But probably not since America is a class based and racist bigoted society run by elitists and their enablers who believe America should be dominated by white Christians or what they refer to as Real Americans who love their guns and Jesus and hate all those not like themselves.

Sheriff’s Arpaio’s Office Targeted Latinos, U.S. Says -

PHOENIX — In a strongly worded critique of the country’s best-known sheriff, the Justice Department on Thursday accused Sheriff Joe Arpaio of engaging in “unconstitutional policing” by unfairly targeting Latinos for detention and arrest and retaliating against those who complain.

After an investigation that lasted more than three years, the civil rights division of the Justice Department said in a 22-page report that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, which Mr. Arpaio leads, had “a pervasive culture of discriminatory bias against Latinos” that “reaches the highest levels of the agency.” The department interfered with the inquiry, the government said, prompting a lawsuit that eventually led Sheriff Arpaio and his deputies to cooperate.

“We have peeled the onion to its core,” said Thomas E. Perez, the assistant attorney general for civil rights, noting during a conference call with reporters on Thursday morning that more than 400 inmates, deputies and others had been interviewed as part of the review, including Sheriff Arpaio and his command staff. Mr. Perez said the inquiry, which included jail visits and reviews of thousands of pages of internal documents, raised the question of whether Latinos were receiving “second-class policing services” in Maricopa County.
