Even if they don't care about human rights, can't people see how bad for us this clown has become? Nobody is going to want to live in the desert remake of Adolf Hitler's Germany, run by SS Commandant Arpaio and his führer, Andrew Thomas. Or is it the other way around? Such a beautiful spot on God's Earth to be ruined by these tyrants!
We can only pray that President Barack Obama's Justice Department steps in and stops them cold. And, by that, I mean brings them up on charges.

Neo, schmeo: Can't these nativists see that they are consorting with Nazis? Since when did that become okay in this country? My dad, a life-long conservative who served in World War II, is turning over in his grave.
The pictures of these Nazi scum, arms outstretched and saluting Joe Arpaio, turned my stomach. And to think I used to support Sheriff Joe.

You hate Jews? You hate Jesus: I am sorry for you, my lost child. You and every person who is white, racist, and claims to be Christian is blinded by the light of the Morning Star. Let us not forget that Jesus Christ was a Jew. So when you say you hate Jews, you hate Jesus. Because, without him, there is not Christianity.

Ramp up your rhetoric, neo-Nazi fools: I find it funny that the same morons who say MCSO doesn't racially profile are themselves outspoken racists. And if you think about it, this type of politics is exactly how Hitler started his persecution of Jews in Germany and gained support for it.
Now, most Germans think of Hitler as a huge disgrace to their culture, and you [neo-Nazi] ass-wipes and Joe Arpaio will be thought of the same way in the end.
No one but the other narrow-minded fools in your "bowel movement" accept your beliefs. But by all means, please, ramp up the rhetoric for Joe. You not only prove our point about his racial politics, but make him look even worse by the association to you.
Übermensch? Puh-leeze: It's really funny how these white-trash inbreeds think they're übermenschen, when most of them would be hard-pressed to successfully complete an algebra problem.
Doesn't neo-Nazi J.T. Ready work at an auto-supply place? That fatty will probably end up flippin' burgers at Mickey D's and drinking himself to extinction with Boone's Farm.
Vito Lombardi? What a schmuck. I see soap-on-a-rope and a bunkmate who calls him "sweetie pie" in his future.
Losers. Big-time losers. At least the Mexicans these losers hate so much ain't lazy crackers. Ever see a Mexican begging for money on a highway exit?
Minors are better off now: You are so right that a guy like Michael "Boo" Booher shouldn't have been involved in a venture that teenagers frequented. It's a good thing that he's been fired, even if the warehouse where the raves were happening didn't get closed.
Bar mitzvahs and quinceañeras are a far sight better than the rowdy raves, replete with underage kids, that the place once featured.
Thanks, New Times, for bringing this situation to light. Minor children are better off for your trouble.

Boo's number-one fan has a few words: My God, New Times strikes again! Please just stick to making the events calendar and the "Best Of." Everything else you guys do is mind-numbingly retarded.
The guy was convicted and served his time. That's it. It's over. It's in the past. He doesn't have to have it held against him for his entire life. That's not the way the justice system works. You do a crime, you do the time. Then it's over.
If the justice system felt he was rehabilitated, then we have to accept its professional judgment (which may be slightly more informed and educated that yours) and move on.
Also if this guy were diddling 7-year-olds, why would he even be interested in the 17-year-olds at his raves? But, yeah, we better shutter a downtown business! It hasn't done anything wrong, but some creepy, weird, old guy is associated with it, and that ought to be a crime!
The guy was [let go] anyway, and you still want the place shuttered. For what reason? Is his creepy spirit hovering over the building and looking up girls' skirts?

Keep kids away from raves: Underage kids have no business at rave scenes, period. This goes without saying when a convicted sex offender was running one. Guys like this should be legally prohibited for life from running businesses catering to kids.
