Oh, I know why. Because California is broke. No handout money there anymore [because] too many illegals gobbled that up.

So, oh, well, I guess my hero Sheriff Joe wins. Again. God, I love him, and I wish we could just make him king of Arizona!

See comment above: The evidence just keeps mounting that Arpaio and his staff are brutal, incompetent, and power-hungry. Yet Arpaio keeps getting re-elected. What is wrong with the people in this state? Are they deaf, dumb and blind?

Where is the DOJ in all this?: The saddest part of all this is how Arpaio's name appears throughout yet another scandal, and he remains unscathed.

Andrew Thomas [and his former deputy county attorneys] Lisa Aubuchon, and Rachel Alexander clearly deserve to go down — and criminally — but it is incredible how the U.S. Department of Justice drags its feet and turns a deaf ear when it comes to the MCSO junta.

System is obviously broken: This is appalling. How is it that we are asked to have faith in the system when the system is obviously broken?

And how is it that an inmate can be denied medical treatment when it is obvious there is an immediate need for help? Aren't there cameras in jail, and can't we prove wrong doing?

MSCO destroys the evidence: Cameras are in the jails. Problem is, tapes get erased long ago that would have shown the brutality of the MCSO. History has proved this already.

It's all true: I just want to say that I did six months in one of Joe's hellholes, and every single damn thing this story says is 100 percent true!

Why not be honest about victim?: Around a steady stream of illegal and dangerous drugs, plus a revolving door of "bad boys," she was not a "mom," despite incubating a fetus during her life cycle.

Deborah Braillard was nothing but a drain on society. She gave no indication that she wanted to be rehabilitated. Had she survived her stint in jail, she would have returned to the life. She was a total waste.

Why the June Cleaver cover? Why the squeaky-clean photo of Braillard, why the dramatic and so-sweet-they're-sickening constructions of the dead mother?

Lacey would have been a lot more honest had he printed Braillard's booking photos. But let's face it, the real intent of the story was just to mother-fuck Joe Arpaio.
