‘Why do so many support those here illegally, and don’t support those sworn to uphold the laws of this country?’ glm

Citizen Staff Writer

The story: Federal authorities will investigate Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s department over allegations of discriminatory practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures.

Your take: If only the Citizen’s online community had strong opinions about Arpaio. Just kidding – the sheriff is the most reliable lightning rod this side of Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Some representative comments:

• Keep up the great work you’re doing, Joe. These idiots are on a witch hunt. They just don’t like someone actually enforcing the law.” – DABears

• “Joe should be in charge of national corrections. . . . To all the new metrosexuals running Washington, stop reading Cosmopolitan and get Cojones Magazine instead.” – Cochise60

• “The winds in Washington are blowing this direction. We can already smell the poisonous stench.” – carb

• “If I were in Joe’s spot, I’d say ‘Bring it on.’ ” – xflbret

• “How about putting the Nazi jerk in a Mexican prison?” – zor

• “Sometimes, it is hard to really see what is going on in the government, but watching this case closely will let us know which way the winds in Washington are blowing.” – Spirit of Zenger

• “Some people are born to bake beautiful little cupcakes with sprinkles on top while other are born to incarcerate people and dress them up in 19th-century uniforms and have them live in tents.” – handslikeclouds

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
