Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona

"Many of us are way past being disgusted and offended by Arpaio. His heinous actions and gloating demeanor are well documented in hundreds of thousands of words written in New Times over the years."

John Dougherty, Phoenix New Times, March 16, 2006

"No one has ever been held responsible for the murders, deaths and injuries that have taken place in the jails under Arpaio’s watch, not even those that occurred under the watchful eye of a video camera."

Linda Bentley, "Sheriff Arpaio Sets the Standard for Torture, Lying, and Denial," Sonoran News, July 6-12, 2005

It's a sign of serious decadence in a society that state operatives can get away with crimes, torture and murder.

I'm not kidding: the firingsquad for this one. Under a workers' government I guess it has to be -- `cause this crew in power is utterly criminal, and their only concern is maintaining the rule of their oligarchic masters.
