Thumbs Up Joe Arpaio Sued by Justice Department

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...0,158798.story

Quote:
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has sued Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, asking a federal court to prevent the brazen and outspoken lawman from racially profiling Latinos, abusing them in his jails and retaliating against his critics.

"The police are supposed to protect and support our community, not divide them," said Assistant Atty. Gen. Thomas E. Perez, head of the Justice Department's civil rights division. "This is an abuse of power case involving a sheriff and a sheriff's office that has ignored the Constitution."

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix, alleges that Arpaio's Maricopa County department engages in a "pattern of unconstitutional conduct" against Latinos, especially immigrants.

Justice Department officials in Washington are asking the court to name an independent monitor to oversee the sheriff's office, develop reform policies to better staff the jails and patrol the county, and possibly find Arpaio and other top sheriff's officials in contempt of court if they do not make changes in a community whose Latino population has grown by 47% over the last decade.

Arpaio did not immediately comment on the lawsuit. In the past Arpaio has said he would not be Washington's "whipping boy" while the Justice Department plays politics to encourage Latino votes for President Obama this fall.

One of Arpaio's supporters, Andi Bell, who last month organized a community walk in his defense, said "everyone has been going after Joe Arpaio."

But, Bell said, "the Department of Justice and the administration is not protecting us in Arizona. He is."

The sheriff, who was warned in December that a lawsuit was coming if he did not clean up his jails and sheriff's patrols, attempted to forestall the suit Wednesday by issuing a 17-page document called "Integrity, Accountability, Community" that addressed some of the issues.

But Perez called it "largely an admission of the problem." He added, "This too-little too-late document cobbled together beyond the 11th hour is no substitute for meaningful reform."

Arpaio has been resistant to change and sensitive to criticism during his 20 years as sheriff. But Perez warned the sheriff that he would resist the suit at his own peril.

"If Maricopa County wants to go to the mat and go to trial," Perez said, "there is a lot at stake."

The suit alleges that Arpaio allowed and encouraged his deputies to randomly profile Latino motorists, then transfer them to jail without apprising them of their legal rights.

"If you look Latino, you are too often fair game," Perez said.

In one case, a Latina who is a U.S. citizen and was five months pregnant was stopped after she pulled into her driveway. She alleges that when she refused an order to sit on the hood of the car, she was slammed stomach-first three times onto the vehicle. Deputies next dragged her to a patrol car and locked her inside for 30 minutes without air conditioning, she said. She was cited for not providing identification.

Spanish speakers in the jails sometime do not receive language assistance, the suit said, and at times detention officers "forced Latino prisoners with limited English skills to sign key legal documents printed in English, in which they forfeited key rights."

The suit further contends that Arpaio and his sheriff's office often retaliated against his critics, including judges, lawyers and community leaders in Arizona, subjecting them to "baseless" criminal actions, "unfounded" civil lawsuits and "meritless" administrative measures.

"Nobody is above the law," Perez said, "and nobody can misuse the legal process to silence those with different opinions."

Mary Rose Wilcox, a Maricopa County supervisor, said in an interview that she was indicted for voicing her opposition to the sheriff's raids in her heavily Latino district. Asked about the lawsuit, she said, "People have been saying, 'Finally justice has come.' "

A separate Justice Department investigation is reviewing allegations of criminal corruption in the sheriff's office.

The civil lawsuit Thursday describes a pervasive attitude that demeans Latinos and a sheriff who rules Maricopa County by blunt intimidation.

Arpaio said in a 2008 book that Mexicans were attempting the "reconquest" of American soil.

In a 2009 interview, he said many Latinos were leaving Phoenix because they feared him. "I think we're doing something good, if they're leaving," he said.

The suit alleges that his attitude has spread through the ranks, where jail employees have dismissed Latino inmates as "wetbacks," "Mexican bitches" and "stupid Mexicans," and sheriff's supervisors circulated an email depicting a photograph of a Chihuahua dog dressed in swimwear. "A rare photo of a Mexican Navy Seal," said the caption.

The lawsuit follows a series of Justice Department enforcement actions against other police departments accused of overlooking or ignoring civil rights, including those in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Portland, Ore., and Seattle.

Justice Department officials began an initial inquiry into Arpaio's operation in Phoenix in June 2008.

Last December, after they could not reach agreement with Arpaio on changes, Washington issued a letter of findings detailing abuses and putting the sheriff on notice that "real reforms" must be made. They negotiated further, but were unable to reach a settlement.
It'd be more fitting if he were beaten to death with a dumbbell.

Nationality searches are putting it at Italian or Greek, while Mexcian seems to be the Colbert response.

In other words, no clue really.

Not that it matters, this is all a lot of politicized bullshit.

Italians were treated like shit and considered subhuman when they began coming here in large waves in the late 1800s, much like the Irish. You'd expect their descendants to be more tolerant and progressive, like Jews and African Americans, as people who have a collective consciousness of oppression.

Things were a lot different back then in regards to the naturalization process. Now, it takes decades to go through the system.

If you believe the slant the media puts on this you are a moron. This is a move to set more precedence for federal intervention on every level to one day soon allow for total federal control over everything. That is how they do it, one piece at time.

Then you fucking get in line and wait in line like the rest of us. And no, the rest of us aren't exempt, just ask the DMV and every other fucking bureaucratic agency in this country.

If you want to be like everyone else, then act like everyone else. Yay, conformity.

It's been necessary several times for the feds to step in to protect citizens that are being oppressed by states. From voting rights to desegregation to immigration. If states could do what they wanted, the South would be a very different place today.

Don't sit there and pretend you give a damn about hunger and suffering. You're right, those things do NOT wait, but they're continuing back in Mexico, regardless of whether or not the ones that made it here get out or not.

And you aren't doing shit about it. Letting a few million illegals get away with things doesn't change that.

In short, you're a fucking hypocrite, but that's nothing new.

It's sad to see our Mulatto in chief oppressing a man who just tried to seek out the truth. Obamas birth certificate wasn't just a forgery but according to experts it was a poorly done forgery.

Our investigation of the purported Obama birth certificate released by Hawaiian authorities today reveals the document is a shoddily contrived hoax. Infowars.com computer specialists dismissed the document as a fraud soon after examining it.
Check out the document released by WhiteHouse.gov for yourself.


Upon first inspection, the document appears to be a photocopy taken from state records and printed on official green paper. However, when the government released PDF is taken into the image editing program Adobe Illustrator, we discover a number of separate elements that reveal the document is not a single scan on paper, as one might surmise. Elements are placed in layers or editing boxes over the scan and green textured paper, which is to say the least unusual.
When sections of the document are enlarged significantly, we discover glaring inconsistencies. For instance, it appears the date stamped on the document has been altered. Moreover, the document contains text, numbers, and lines with suspicious white borders indicating these items were pasted from the original scan and dropped over a background image of green paper.

Let’s assume the state of Hawaii scanned the original document and placed it on the green textured background. This does not explain the broken out or separate elements. There is no logical reason for this to be done unless the government planned to modify the document and make it appear to be something other than it is.
There are two elements of interest, as shown in the image to the above – both entries for the date accepted by the local registry. This appears to have been modified in an image editing program.
The media was quick to dispel the fact the document was modified. “Our analysis of the latest controversy: The original birth certificate was probably in a ‘negative’ form, and someone at the White House took it upon themselves to doctor it up so the form can be readable,” writesJoe Brooks for Wireupdate.
Nathan Goulding, writing for the National Review, tells us anybody can open the White House released PDF in Illustrator and it will break out into layers. “I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home,” he writes.
Indeed, but this does not answer the question why in the Obama birth certificate PDF the layers or elements contain dates – which appear to be modified – and the signature of the state registrar. If the document was acquired from state records in whole, why was it necessary to add elements? Goulding and Brooks do not address this issue.
These layers are also revealed by the White House issued PDF’s hex file in freeware hex editor. Within its code are listed 8 image masks, which if changed from value “true” to “false” turn off and on to reveal the layers as demonstrated in the video and in Illustrator. Whether these represent compression artifacts or other digitizing processes, or whether these masks represent deliberate manipulation remains to be conclusively shown.

Quote:
An attorney representing Barack Obama has argued in court that the long-form birth certificate image released by the White House nearly a year ago should not be placed into evidence.

It was April 10 at a three-hour eligibility hearing before a New Jersey administrative law judge that Alexandra Hill made the argument.

Hill, legal counsel representing Obama’s re-election campaign, argued that New Jersey law does not require Obama to present a valid birth certificate to establish his qualifications under Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution and be placed on the New Jersey Democratic Party primary ballot.

Hill repeatedly explained to Judge Jeff S. Masin, “We do not believe the president’s birth certificate is relevant to this case.”

Agreeing with Hill, Masin ruled in a written opinion the same day that New Jersey law does not require Obama to produce any proof he is eligible to be president to be placed on the primary ballot.

Noting that New Jersey law allows a nominating petition endorsing a particular person for president to be filed without the consent of the person endorsed, Masin said, “There is no obligation upon the person endorsed to prove his or her qualification for office.”

At the hearing, Masin prevented petitioner’s counsel Mario Apuzzo, who has argued a number of eligibility cases in court, from placing Obama’s birth certificate into evidence. Nor was Apuzzo allowed to call to the stand a witness willing to offer expert testimony that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.

Is Obama ready to throw the birth certificate under the bus?

“What is emerging in the various state legal challenges to including President Obama on the presidential ballot appears to be an attempt by the White House to divorce itself from the Obama long-form birth certificate released,” said Mike Zullo, the lead investigator in Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s law enforcement investigation into Obama’s birth certificate and eligibility to be president.

Challenges to Obama’s name on the 2012 election ballot have appeared in more than half a dozen states already.

At a press conference in Phoenix on March 1, Arpaio announced his law enforcement investigators had established probable cause that Obama’s birth certificate and his Selective Service Registration forms are forgeries.

Zullo questioned why the White House did not instruct Hill to champion the birth certificate as legitimate.

“The White House appears to be acting as if the Obama birth certificate is of no consequence in establishing the fact of Obama’s birth,” Zullo continued.

“Instead of producing the birth certificate to the New Jersey secretary of state and arguing to Judge Masin that the document was legitimate, Obama’s legal counsel did everything she could to keep the document from coming into evidence. Why?”

Reviewing the three-hour court hearing, it is clear Hill remained adamant on the birth certificate being irrelevant in New Jersey.

Hill affirmed to Masin in response to a direct question from the bench that Obama’s birth certificate had never been presented to the New Jersey secretary of state to establish his eligibility, and she affirmed that the Obama re-election campaign had no intention of doing so.

At one point in the hearing, Masin, apparently agreeing with Hill’s argument, dramatically explained to Apuzzo that Obama’s birth certificate was not at issue in the case.

“I have nothing before me that I can look at and can say, ‘Okay, this is what has been produced as his [Obama’s] birth certificate,’” the judge said from the bench.

“There is nothing here,” he continued, referring to the birth certificate. “The campaign has not produced me anything, and I assume you’re not planning on doing that. The campaign hasn’t shown me anything on the Internet. There’s no birth certificate that has been presented to me – good, bad, indifferent, real, forged, certified, anything – it’s not here.”

Apuzzo pressed to be put on the record a stipulation by White House counsel that the Obama campaign was not utilizing the long-form birth certificate as proof that Obama was born in Hawaii or as proof he was qualified to be president as a “natural born citizen” under the Constitution.

In response, Hill repeated she had no intention of presenting Obama’s birth certificate to the court.

“It’s not here,” she told Masin. “I don’t have it.”

“There appears to be no affirmative requirement that a person endorsed in a nominating petition for the presidency present to the Secretary of State any certification or other proof that he is qualified for the office, at least not at the time when nominating petitions are to be accepted or rejected by the secretary,” Masin wrote in his decision.

“In this matter, as the petitioners’ objection is that Mr. Obama has not provided the secretary with proof of the place of his birth by means of a birth certificate or otherwise, the lack of any obligation on his part to do so means he has not failed to act in accordance with the applicable law.”

If Obama's birth certificate was a fake, he wouldn't have been allowed to run for Senator and would be in prison. The government ain't dumb, quit talking about that birther shit, we get it, you can't fathom a black guy with a foreign sounding name in the White House.

That would be the case if people didn't simply refuse to question anything about Obama because he's black. Saying he wasn't born here must be racist so any real investigation on it is always blocked. Btw senators don't have to be born in the US. They just have to be a citizen for 9 years.

They're not stifling his free speech, they're stifling his actions and judging him for his free speech. Which they're free to do. Because America, fuck yeah. This is like arresting a murderer who talks about all the women he's raped and murdered and saying he was arrested to keep him quiet rather than because he was a murderous scumbag.

Nope.
I expect whoever is in charge to take full advantage of being on top and to do their best to keep everyone else down, that way I'm not surprised when they act like total shits.
They just want to forget they were ever at the bottom of the heap.

Lol, more and more blacks are adopting republican views; blacks are also the most homophobic, and as black-on-white crime figures show also one of the most racist groups in the united states. Once again, stop talking out of your shit coated ass.

What evidence do you have proving he has oppressed and harassed even a single person?

Have you seen the guy on fucking lockup? He walks around his fucking jail taunting inmates, makes them wear pink underwear, and sticks them outside in 100+ degree heat. There's dozens of cases where his officers have racially profiled and arrested innocent people for simply being Latino.

Racial profiling only exists because statistically blacks and mestizos commit the majority of crimes.

Accepting what someone says as "reliable" simply because they're not the so-called liberal media is fucking stupid. Particularly when referring to WND, an agency that has repeatedly shown themselves to be unreliable.

It's not Greek. I can tell you that much. Probably Italian.
