Arpaio looked up at the camera and stopped writing.

"That sound familiar? You remember him?" asked Joe's unseen interlocutor. "He's a guy who died in your jail, remember him? He was killed by one of your officers."

"Really?" mumbled Joe, as a distinct uneasiness — fear even — flashed across his face.

"Yeah, he had a towel stuffed in his mouth, and he was beaten and Tasered," continued the young man. Joe soon gained composure, and ordered one of his MCSO bodyguards to "get this guy out of here."

Eerily, it was almost 12 years to the day since Scott Norberg lost his life in one of the MCSO's infamous, medieval restraint chairs. Norberg's parents weren't without means, and they retained the services of ball-busting barrister Mike Manning. They sued the sheriff. The MCSO was caught allegedly destroying evidence and ultimately had to settle for $8.25 million.

Reading about how Norberg was murdered by MCSO officers will give you a spine chill that won't easily subside. Watching the short video by pro-immigrant activist Dennis Gilman that was recently posted to the blog of this heron's online bro Feathered Bastard will elicit outrage and sad disgust.

The book-signing incident took place at the Barnes and Noble in Goodyear on a recent Saturday afternoon. Placard-wielding protesters were warned by Goodyear cops to stay out on the street, away from the bookstore's parking lot. But some went into the bookstore solo. One got this video for Gilman to edit. The unsettling mini-soundtrack, that Tibetan chanting you hear, is supposedly of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The Bird arrived shortly after this incident and heard about it afterward. Seated next to Arpaio, as mostly old white people and rednecks approached our county's chief constable to buy his book and shake his hand, this truculent tallywacker asked the top cop if he had trouble sleeping at night because of the trail of blood he's left through his gulags. He shook his head no. Later, he explained with a shrug that people die in the jails and that there's not much he can do about it.

Activists are correct to protest Joe in this fashion. Martin Luther King Jr. would have been proud. What's needed is more civil disobedience! Even if Joe sleeps well at night, the rest of us shouldn't. Not, at least, until he's been voted out of office or, perhaps, occupies one of the very same cells where his victims breathed their last.

Typical reactions I'm afraid.If you don't like the questions insult the person asking!

In all this diatribe there is only one point that actually responds to a troofer question with any substance and that is the speed of the WTC7 building collapse.

Well, if you want to know the troof, watch a video of the collapse for yourself and measure the rate the roofline drops over the distance that you can see.

"Is Stephen Lemons paid to write this nonsense?"

The better question is WHO pays Stephen Lemons to write this nonsense

The only thing odd about the whole situation is that, as far as I know, there has never been a (completed)skyscraper that collapsed due to fire before or since, and we have 3 on one day...I don't beleive the gov't was n on it, but it DOES make for interesting questions...

Haha, the author practically proves that the official account of the towers fall is false. Here is his error:He quotes that thousands of bombs/thermate would be needed to destroy those buildings, and thats why it couldn't have been a demolition... Because a demolition would require thousands of bombs/cutter charges. THOUSANDS.But then he falls right into the trap. He insists that it was fire and damage 85 floors up which totally annihilated the towers into dust. Wait a moment? If that were the case, why would any demolition team need any explosives? Why, you could just set one floor on fire, and destroy the columns on two or three floors, and the entire skyscraper will turn to dust at near- free fall speed. Wow! I should start a demolition business then! I'll save millions!By saying that thousands of bombs/thermate would be necessary, these debunkers actually disprove the fire/airplane method of annihilation.

Is Stephen Lemons paid to write this nonsense? Frankly, I'm surprised he can write. He has clearly never read anything.

I think McCain would rather be tortured by the North Vietnamese again than spend two hours with the 9/11 truthers.

The History Channel's 9/11 Conspiracies: Fact or Fiction documentary can be view on my blog:

It would make common sense to pre-wire a tall building that had been previously attacked by terrorists in an attempt to minimize damage should the same thing happen again. No sense in having a building like the Towers fall over sideways and take out ten city blocks of buildings when a fall into itself would minimize damage (and lawsuits) from the building. I mean, knowing that your building was attacked previously in an attempt to get it to collapse, wouldn't the question be asked "Could this happen again?" If the answer were yes, then making provisions for a future attack (i.e., pre-wiring a building so one could "pull" it in the case it poses a danger to other buildings around it) would make ultimate sense. The owner of the buildings might have decided to do this on his own, covertly, with a small crew demo experts (from a foreign country) over the period from the time of the first terrorist attack on the Towers (February 26, 1993). That's a period of approx. 7 years that this task may have been accomplished. Plenty of time to do in secret without a lot of people knowing what was going on.

I don't have any doubt that the planes flew into the towers, I just think that the building may have been "pulled" to prevent a larger amount of damage due to it falling sideways if it were to fall. The other more cynical thought is that the owner "pulled" the building because he wanted to be able to collect insurance proceeds from a complete collapse rather than have to try to rebuild a damaged building.

BTW - I don't think reasonable people who have doubts and want answers should be called names. It unprofessional for a journalist (or even a columnist) to act in such a manner.

cretinous mental cousins of Holocaust deniers, moon-howling inanities, tinfoil-hat notions, crackpot, cult-like, straightjackets, republiloon, crazy old bag, conspiritards, bullhockey, wack-job, twisted fantasies, lunatic, sick delusion, nutbars, moonbat, freaks, fruitcakes, conspiracy kookiness, fruit loop-iest, dingbats, 9/11 denial movement, pathetic pony-tailed pinhead, insanity, troofers...

This is a strange, almost hysterical reaction to American citizens demanding answers from their elected officials.
