Joe Arpaio Going After Wannabe Dog-Humpers on Craigslist: Distraction or Job Well Done?
Yesterday, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced that his detectives found people on Craigslist trying to have sex with dogs -- again.
The plan, according to Arpaio, was that the three people arrested by the MCSO Monday night were using Craigslist to find a dog to "fornicate" with the woman, while her husband and friend watched.
The sheriff's office says all three of the suspects -- Shane Walker, 38, Sarah Dae Walker, 33, and Robert Aucker, 29 -- showed up to the predetermined location, where they met an undercover detective and his male Golden Shepherd mix.
Arpaio called the type of people who hit up Craigslist looking for dogs to have sex with are "a different breed, that's for certain."
Meanwhile, there are
one or two more than 400 botched sex crime investigations that haven't headlined any recent press releases from the sheriff's office.
Let's get straight to the question: Is catching wannabe dog-humpers on Craigslist a distraction or a job well done?
