Arpaio Corruption: The Feds Have Spoken, But Justice Won't Be Served Until the Sheriff's Indicted

Jack MacIntyre is paid more than $120,000 a year to justify and rationalize the ill deeds for which his boss, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, ultimately is culpable.

These include the wrongful deaths that take place regularly in Arpaio's jails, the persecution of Arpaio's enemies by his underlings, the Sheriff's Office's rampant corruption, its malfeasance and dereliction of duty, its institutionalized racial profiling, and its gross disregard for constitutional rights.

So his smarmy reply at Arpaio's recent press conference to the U.S. Department of Justice's bombshell report on the MCSO's well-documented mania for racial profiling hardly was a surprise.

"There are really no specific allegations in [the report]," MacIntyre buffaloed reporters. "There are generalities. There are claims made by a few people that are unidentified."

The deputy chief's lips were moving — so Mac­Intyre, of course, was lying.

But, then, MacIntyre, at the same presser, moronically compared the DOJ report to the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

The report, in the form of a letter of findings from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Tom Perez, actually is full of specifics that back up its characterization of the MCSO's policies as "the most egregious [case] of racial profiling in the Unites States."

The report states at one point, "The MCSO has implemented practices that treat Latinos as if they are all undocumented, regardless of whether a legitimate factual basis exists to suspect that a person is undocumented."

In reading that line, I felt as though I'd written it — on many other occasions and in many different ways.

In 2009, when dealing with the case of a green-card-carrying father and his 12-year-old American-citizen son (who were zip-tied and treated like ordinary criminals by MCSO goons because their home was next to a drop house), I observed:

"To the MCSO, all Hispanics are suspected of being illegal aliens until proved otherwise."

Both the legal-resident dad and his son are named Fili Gaucin. The names of Gaucin junior and senior are not mentioned in Perez's letter, but their treatment is described in detail.

On the day in question, Gaucin senior was at home when MCSO thugs knocked on his door. He cooperated with them, let them search his home without a warrant, and answered questions about his neighbors, though he didn't know what they were up to.

Though Gaucin had his green card on him, deputies took him outside, zip-tied his hands, and sat him down with those the MCSO was removing from the drop house next door.

As if that weren't bad enough, Arpaio's boys in beige went for his son, placing the kid in zip ties that hurt his wrists. They were detained for about an hour before getting released without explanation.

Perez avoided naming the Gaucins when describing the incident. He used it as just one example of the "widespread pattern or practice of law enforcement and jail activities that discriminate against Latinos."

New Times readers should be familiar with these allegations, because I and other writers here proved them in a 2009 series titled "Are Your Papers in Order?" and in stories published before and since.

In fact, I wrote about the Gaucins twice, once in March and once on October 29, 2009 ("Joe Arpaio Zip-Ties a 12-Year-Old"). Other news outlets covered the Gaucins, as well. Both MacIntyre and Arpaio are well aware of the incident.

The Gaucins, of course, are just one example of how the MCSO treats Hispanics as second-class citizens. There are so many other examples that it would take an encyclopedia to detail them all.

There also is the case of Julio and Julian Mora, another father-and-son pair in which the dad is a legal permanent resident and the son an American citizen.

In 2009, the Moras were handcuffed and held for three hours without cause during an MCSO immigration raid, one in which the sheriff's men looked for illegal landscapers. With the help of the ACLU of Arizona, the Moras sued the MCSO, receiving a $200,000 settlement.

Over the years, I've brought you accounts of Latina moms whose arms were broken or their jaws busted in MCSO custody. I've given you accounts of parents torn from their crying children by MCSO deputies wearing black ski masks and bulletproof vests.

Other New Times reporters have recounted stories of permanent residents getting physically abused and, in one instance, a medieval scene in which a Latina was shackled to her bed as she gave birth.

No, the Perez letter doesn't retell each of these stories. It doesn't have to.

Over three-plus years, DOJ investigators and analysts interviewed witnesses and victims. The DOJ sued for access to records, MCSO personnel, and the jails themselves. They ultimately won — and were able to nail down the systemic nature of the MCSO's ill deeds.

They found Latino drivers four to nine times more likely to be stopped by the MCSO. Twenty percent of all stops made by the MCSO's notorious Human Smuggling Unit were done "without reasonable suspicion or probable cause."

And almost all HSU stops were of Latinos.

The DOJ also picked up on Arpaio himself "promoting a culture of bias in his organization" and communicating to his underlings that "biased policing would not only be tolerated, but encouraged."

Mrcasual8560, I agree with you 100%. I also believe Joe to be one of the very few with the "guts" to do the right thing. He's hated so much because he is not swayed by BULLSHI_! He's a man who has some common sense and unfoturnately that makes him different. What a sad world we live in now.

What a load, Joe and his men are doing what so many haven't the Balls to do, the only way you can find the ones who are here without permission is to check each one out since it's our brown brothers from south of the border in question, what would you have them do ? check oreintals instead? as for bad treatment , do't do anything to get yourself in jail

Mr. Lemons, We thank you for your courage to investigate and tell the truth most other reporters tend to ignore. Without you, the status quo would continue and you've opened it up wide for scrutiny making the "establishment" very nervous. People have had enough of Arizona's decades one-party rule = tyranny. Without getting the "good ole boys and their "women" out of office, nothing will change. The truth hurts the hypocrites among us.

Stephen Lemons is a terrible writer and should be prosecuted for defemation for his assertions targeting the MCSO that many other Sherriff depts face across the nation. Why is he isolating the MCSO? Why doesn't he do research to find out if similar incidents happen involving white people? He is blind and doesn't recognize that white people are not exempted from false imprisonment. He wants to jump on what sounds like a good story. Thats all these writers do anymore. Its sick.

You speak of yourself. You are a judgmental person who evidently thinks that it is justifiable to mistreat people because they are "here Illegally". Do you so foolishly think that he and his organization would treat you any different if you found yourself on the wrong side of the law?

Joe Arpaio is an opportunist, a true sociopath who has abused his position of power to promote himself. Perhaps with people such as yourself who seemingly support civil rights abuses as "justice" and the law this is well and good, but to the rest of the world, this man is an utter embarrassment. China laughs at the United States when we talk down at them about Civil Rights, yet allow this man to continue to kill people in his gulags.

If you would call the hundreds of millions of dollars wasted of OUR taxpayers funds in defending this fiend against civil judgements against him, as a good job, then it is you who is fast asleep.

I am so tired of hearing about how the sheriff's department practices racial profiling. My skin is so white it's practically diaphanous and my eyes are blue. My hair is currently a light brown, its natural color, but when my civil rights were violated, apparently, by security at the airport, by the sheriff's department and by the Peoria Police Department over the last 12 years or so, my hair was either blond or red. Were these entities searching for the Irish? What about the Swedish? Who can I sue? And what attorney will represent me? If anything, I am discriminated against because my skin is so "white". By the way, the three times I was stopped, I was wearing Guess jeans or Levi's and driving a white Ford Taurus or silver BMW.

What the bigots do not realize, is the laws they want for those they hate, apply to them as well. ALL are at risk with rights taken away from one group. Arizona needs to teach Civics and History in it's schools. But then the "leaders" want ignorant masses they can "control".

In a state like AZ, the comments like the two below are predictable and laughable. Because here, the "business-minded" conservatives have completely lost touch with the image that we project nationally and internationally. And Maricopa County has become a larger and larger laughing stock since Arpaio's 1992 election as a one-term sheriff promising to get the politics out of MCSO.

Most of us in this county prefer strict enforcement of our laws. But treating those laws selectively, as Arpaio has done throughout his time as sheriff, isn't "strict enforcement." The accounting under his terms produced a hundred million dollars of misallocation and improper accounting... a shell game really. That alone would be enough to sink most politicians. But those charges surfaced just as so many others in the catalogue of Sheriff Joe's clown act were also coming to light.

He began his service to Maricopa County with all the well-known stunts that he's ridden ever since: tents, green bologna, strips, pink underwear and Old Yeller. He promised to save the county money, while he's built a literal empire. Ever drive by the jail complexes or downtown MCSO facilities? And on top of that, he's cost us tens of millions of dollars in lawsuits and settlements, twenty-five million alone in prisoner abuse cases. The list of malfeasance and incompetent leadership taking place while Sheriff Joe has essentially been grand-standing for the mouth-breathing right wing is far too long to list here.

I don't think that we can wait for charges to be filed or an election. We can't afford it. It's time for Sheriff Joe to go... by recall, if necessary.

John D, thats nothing compared to other cities in the nation. Sheriff Joe is a great Sheriff and has done a great job. Even if he uses racial profinling to find people who are illegal because the records show that most illegals in AZ are hispanic. Thats the truth. not using that knowledge to your advantage is wasteful.

All he is doing is what is needed, the governments wants to control every aspect of our everyday lives with regulations and policies they call it protecting or society. protect our society by protecting our boarders. We deployed 250,000 plus troops overseas to protect our oil, but we can't sent troops to protect our people who live in the 4 states that boarder Mexico. This doesn't make any sense what so ever the only logical explanation for this is that our government is in bed with these people who are killing American citizens and flooding our country with drugs. 2012 election can not come fast enough, I voted for Obama instead of Mc Cain I was conned just like the majority of young American you voted for the first time. Mc Cain at least acknowledges the seriousness to protect our boarders, can't say the same for Obama. Stand up for what is right, stand up for Sheriff Joe. By the way I am a liberal and African American.

I feel utterly baffled that anyone can feel that Sheriff Arpaio is acceptable as a law enforcement professional. After all that has come out, and more every day.

Just his treatment of pregnant women.Or his killing and maiming of people in his jails.Or his obvious blatant racial and ethnic discrimination.Or his bad police work.Or his huge tsunami of lawsuits – 20 times that typical of counties similar to Maricopa in size.Or his divisiveness - at least a third of our community regarding Sheriff Arpaio and his officers with fear, loathing and the utmost distrust while avoiding any contact to the extent at all possible. The Sheriff has the cooperation typical of a hostile occupying army.

Any one of those more than enough to remove him. Any one more than enough to cause a decent human being to resign. The job is too big for him and he lacks the right temperament.

By the way, June, who do you think is buying the drugs that come from Mexico? Not Mexicans, I can assure you.

To make a fire you first have to break a few sticks. Most of Sheriff Joes lawsuits come from left wing activist groups that feel "unjustly" treated.

Every week i get poked prodded and molested by Airport security during "routine" screening. I accept this due to actions of a select few that wanted to hurt our country 10 years ago. Our country had to take steps to keep the United States people protected just as the need to now.

If you don't think the flooding of illegal immigrants is a massive strain on this countries economy then you are truely ignoring the basic facts regarding annual monetary loss

See: http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/...

If Joe is removed from office realize that we will be WORSE than California due to the fact the immigrants pass through here on their way there.

Bill, I guess the three ghosts haven't visited you yet. Many Americans think there are more important issues than undocumented immigrants. Like respecting our Constitution.

Sheriff Arpaio doesn't show respect for or knowledge of the principles of American democracy, which do not include arresting political enemies.

At least a third of our community regard Sheriff Arpaio and his officers with fear, loathing and the utmost distrust while avoiding any contact to the extent at all possible. The Sheriff has the cooperation typical of a hostile occupying army.

And you know, what goes around, comes around. As one Latina put it:

"White people hate taking care of their elders, so in 20 years all these bigots are gonna be in nurs-ing homes getting cared for by who? The Latino children of the Latina mothers they persecuted, oppressed, harassed and raped. Better watch out white old man, I remember what you did to my mama! So it's in your interest to be humane to us because your grandkids are gonna forget about you. You know, estranged families, it's a white thing."

It seems that the" CORRUPT "justice department under ,racist holder, has double standards when it comes to the term" justice".What about fast and furrious that allowed guns to get into the hands of mexican cartels and the Murder of border patrol agent, Brian Terry, and many mexican nationals , a scheme concocted by loser obama with his" under the radar" anti gun scheme. Why is that any different .Anything to try to distract from deadbeat ,loser, obamas administrations corruption that seems to be conducted daily.

I see Blog has hit the Fast-Furious auto-reply button again, which has nothing to do with this article. Speaking of things that have nothing to do with the subject, did you notice that a Bush appointed Federal Judge on Friday found pretty much the same thing as the Department of Justice.

That's two branches of the Federal government telling us that Arpaio is too racist for America and too disrespectful of the Constitution and laws of the United States.

That only leaves one branch to go.

Everything about this circus is sick and wrong but at least Joe is doing something to slow the socialist agenda being pushed. If you think things are going to be better here just look at North Korea, Cambodia with PolPot or Russia under stalin or any of the other failed socialist regimes around the world run by egomanical little tyrants. better yet ask the millions of dead that resulted from their regimes. Breadlines hunger lower standards of living corruption loss of rights ownership of anything. This time now with all the problems will be remembered as the good times considering the path we are on.

It might be more relevant to ask the socialist Canadians. You do know this investigation started more than three years ago, long before our Sheriff added birther nonsense to his repertoire.

You do know that the investigation was delayed about 18 months while Sheriff Arpaio refused to release documents to the DOJ, nor to permit access to the Maricopa County jails - all as required by law. What part of illegal do you suppose the Sheriff doesn't understand? The results of the investigation would have been released in early 2010 but for the Sheriff's illegal stone-walling.

You do know that a similar thing happened with the Civil Rights suit ruled on by a Bush appointed Federal Judge last Friday. Once again racial profiling and un-Constitutional behavior was found. This suit was filed in 2007, but was delayed a year and a half because - can you guess - the Sheriff shredded documents and deleted emails in spite of a the customary common sense court order to preserve the evidence. The Sheriff forget - imagine. These orders would also have been issued long before our Sheriff added birther nonsense to his repertoire.

The Sheriff is is a vindictive racist who has imbued his jails and police operations with a culture of unconstitutional discrimination and cruelty. He has no place in American law enforcement. He's a disgrace to our County, State and Country.

Unfortunately, I don't think AARPio.

Upon reading the article and then some of the comments posted here. The blatant ignorance oozing from some is why we as a people will never evolve and advance our way of thinking.

Simple fact, that until you see the picture as a whole and the truth behind the LIES sold to you so very easily by the PTB, you are destined to be lost and confused. I too was that angry once. Cause and effect. How much of our Government's interference causes our own internal strife??Those that blame the current administartion with such a ferocious outcry and not blame the entire entity as a whole, are a glaring reflection of the lack of intelligence surrounding us. Your inablity to look at things from all angles is frightening. How much of a grasp do we truly have of any of today's leaders. None!

Have you asked yourselves lately what laws or initiatives were you pleased with that Bush passed or rallied for?? How has your life or the World around you improved since any of your heroes have been the figureheads that you so strongly relate to? What has personally changed for you with each new cycle of wolves in sheeps clothing. What should change?

We have all been duped, the first step to change is to realize that you yourself have been included in the duping and be able to know yourself and how you truly stand on an issue and the principles surrounding it. Maybe the sky balls will release a payload and cleanse the Earth. Perhaps we will be given another chance, perhaps we won't.

Open your mind to intelligent application of thought to the issues before us, not the answers as told to you by your religion, friends, family and not by those who stand to benefit.

Is something bad because we are told it is bad or we decide from our own experiences/ opinions that something is bad?

We must regain the ideas and thoughts of that independent spirit. The live and let live approach that we all espouse to want to follow. Trust me, it is no longer being looked after by those who should be guarding it. It has been trounced upon by all who tout that they serve to protect it.

Sherrif Joe is one of a few law enforcement individuals who understands a simple fact: "illegal immigrant" = an individual who is not in the United States legally. Being that the "illegal immigrant" has broken our (and Barrack Hussien Obwama's) Federal Immigration Laws and entered the United States through illegal means, he / she is subject to a crime and as such, he / she is subject to deportation. Is that difficult to understand?

It is time for him to retire. The county is not his personnal fiefdom.

I'm not sure I agree with part where you would not care if they lined them up and shot them, we would lower ourselves to the same morals of the wetbacks. The area I live in there so many illegals everyone knows where the drop houses are and the drug houses are when they come back and forth from Mexico with their drugs. I don't why the police department does nothing yet the Sheriff is the only one that does his job and everyone complains. As far as the Justice Department what people don't realize is they came making their stuipd statement made all these accusations that are not true because they sure as hell didn't talk to any and Hispanics that I know of course they only talk to the Mexicans and their organizations here. The Justice Department has not from what I understand not given Bill Montgomery who has asked for complete and detailed investigation that the justice department claims to have done. If it was a fact that all these things are true why then hasn't the Justice Department placed sanctions or filed a lawsuit or filed charges.
