DOJ plans to ratchet up the political persecution of Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio

Obama's DOJ to sue Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and his office for enforcing immigration law. They call that a civil rights violation.

Via ABC News:
Federal authorities said Wednesday that they plan to sue Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and his office over allegations of civil rights violations, including the racial profiling of Latinos.

The U.S. Justice Department has been seeking an agreement requiring Arpaio's office to train officers in how to make constitutional traffic stops, collect data on people arrested in traffic stops and reach out to Latinos to assure them that the department is there to also protect them.

Arpaio has denied the racial profiling allegations and has claimed that allowing a court monitor would mean that every policy decision would have to be cleared through an observer and would nullify his authority.

Great hread BGP.

How many times have we seen this in the main stream media?

Where are the "conservatives" and "libertarian" members of Congress that are willing to discuss this issue.

One of the penatlies for failing to register within the time frame alloted by the Selective Service Registration law, is EXCLUSION of ANY work in the Executive branch of Government.

But yet there he is.
