Joe Arpaio's "Corrective Statement" in Melendres Submitted to Federal Judge

Not sure I'll believe this until I see Sheriff Joe Arpaio's geriatric scrawl on it, but reproduced at the bottom of this post is the so-called "corrective statement," filed by the MCSO's attorney Tim Casey in the ACLU's big civil rights lawsuit Melendres v. Arpaio.

You'll recall that on May 24, 2013, federal Judge G. Murray Snow essentially found the MCSO guilty of racially profiling Latinos during traffic stops and ordered that this unconstitutional activity cease.

Snow issued an injunction in October, detailing what the MCSO would have to do to comply with his May judgement.

In January, Snow appointed former Rochester, NY police chief Robert Warshaw as his monitor, to make sure that his order is followed.
