I Love It

AP:
Ariz. Posse to Round Up Illegal Immigrants:

[...]
A 250-member posse that will operate similarly to the anti-smuggler task force will patrol the area for illegal immigrants who pay smugglers to cross through Arizona, the busiest illegal entry point along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border.

The posse will be made up of existing sheriff's deputies and members of the department's 3,000-member posse reserve of trained, unpaid volunteers.
[...]

"'I get sued when I go to the toilet. You think I'm worried about it?' [Sheriff Joe Arpaio] said. 'If they think I'm going to slow down because of these threats, I've got news for them — I'm not going to slow down. I'll do more of it.'"
[...]
I sorta clap to myself for Arizona every time I read one of these stories.
At least someone is doing something more than farting around in the legislature on this issue.

I saw Sheriff Joe on the O'Reilly Factor the other day. As expected Big Bad Bill hit him pretty hard and Joe, basically, didn't take any of his shit. Sheriff Joe has a reputation for not taking shit from the media and this explains why he keeps getting re-elected.

Wish I would have seen that.
