Morning Poll -- Joe Arpaio's Latest "Raid": Waste of Time?

On Thursday night, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio conducted a raid of the Burlington Coat Factory in the Arizona Mills Mall.

He arrested three undocumented workers -- and we stress the word "workers."

With the huge number of un-served, felony warrants in Maricopa County, and the coyotes and drug smugglers moving hundreds of people and tons of drugs through the county every day, many people say -- as they often do after one of Joe's raids -- using the resources of the Sheriff's Office to target people who, legally speaking, are small potatoes, is a waste of time.

On the other side of the coin, some people say every little bit helps.

We want to know what you think: Was Arpaio's latest raid a waste of time, money, and resources, or is the world now a safer place because a few retail workers are no longer hanging clothes at the Burlington Coat Factory?

Vote -- and see the results of Friday's poll -- after the jump. 

Friday's poll question: What should Joe Arpaio do for his birthday?

-4 percent say wash his hair.

-19 percent say stick a grenade up his ass and pull the pin.

-19 percent say prepare for his perp walk.

-3 percent say hold his breath...forever.

-55 percent say he could go fuck himself the way he's been fucking every citizen of Maricopa county since the day he took office.
