Joe Arpaio's Weasel Move to Exempt Posse and Jail Side from Judge's Order Largely Denied

Sheriff Joe Arpaio's weasel-y attempt to exempt the "jail side" of his operation and all posse members from having to obey federal Judge G. Murray Snow's latest dictate in the ACLU's big civil rights case Melendres v. Arpaio has failed.

With the exception of jail volunteers and others personally guaranteed by Arpaio as having nada to do with enforcement, the judge's original order to disseminate a "corrective statement" to all MCSO personnel stands.
