Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arapaio Falls on his Sword after Getting Caught Disrespecting Court Order

Posted by Jay L. Ciulla | Mar 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

After getting caught mocking a standing order of the court and the judge who issued it, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arapaio and his chief deputy promised to "respect and comply with letter and spirit of this court order."  KPHO shows the never quiet Maricopa County Sheriff, holding his tongue outside the court house in Phoenix, Arizona. United States District Court Judge Murray admonished the Sheriff and his staff after they were caught on video mocking the judge's order. Previously, Judge Snow found the Maricopa County Sheriff had violated the rights of U.S. citizens,resident aliens and Arizona hispanics when conducting operations that amounted to racial and ethnic profiling.  The court has ordered that MCSO have a monitor to oversee Sheriff's Office operations, place cameras in all patrol cars and create new training materials/procedures.

While the Sheriff and his cronies may not like the Judge's order, their remedy is to appeal, not to whine and refuse to follow it. Since, Arpaio can't seem to keep his big mouth shut, he will likely end up in front of Judge Snow apologizing again.
