UNIVISION Phoenix 33 had best video coverage on protest of Joe Arpaio regarding another Latino inmate deathWednesday, June 13th, 2012
UNIVISION Phoenix 33 had the best video coverage on the protest of Joe Arpaio regarding another Latino inmate death. Yesterday the Tequila Party protested Arpaio. John Rowan for sheriff and Mike Stauffer for sheriff supporters were there. Paul Penzone was nowhere to be found. The Tequila Party acted immediately because a Latino Veteran via Marty Atencio died unjustly in Arpaio’s prison in December 2011 and now another Latino inmate death has been revealed. The mother and girlfriend of Raymond Farinas said they saw bruises all over his body and a cut on his forehead.
This is an outrage! I remember Arpaio joking about the mysterious Mexican deaths in his prison system that was held at a GOP meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. Joe Arpaio is the same man Mitt Romney appointed as his Arizona Chair in 2008 when he ran against John McCain. Turns out Arpaio continues to make light of this issue and is running amuck.
We issued an action alert yesterday and we had a few people come and go during the two hour protest under the unbelievable heat. We protested in 107 degree weather. Latinos will not be silent anymore. The Chicano movement is stirred.
You can see the UNIVISION video here. They reported the protest the best out of all media outlets once Channel 3 broke the story.
