Apparently, everyone's favourite American law enforcement fascist is once again in the news:
In Boldest Move Yet, Arpaio And Ally Charge Judge With Bribery, Despite Lack Of Evidence
For a while now, there's been plenty of evidence of Sheriff Joe Arpaio abusing his law enforcement powers to target political enemies. Indeed, Justice Department investigators are said to have been looking into the issue for the last year.
But Arpaio may now have taken things into a whole new realm. This week, the top cop for Maricopa County, Arizona, who has used media-friendly stunts to gain a national reputation as a law-and-order zealot and bete noir of illegal immigrants, announced the filing of a criminal complaint against his latest target: a judge who's involved in several of the controversial cases Sheriff Joe has helped bring.
Now, you'd think that, even if you're a rancid racist and gleeful eliminationist who celebrates the violent deaths of Toronto's immigrant community, if you're also a Blogging Tory, there are certain lines you're not prepared to cross and certain people you're not willing to worship publicly. You'd think that.
You would be wrong.
Blogging Tory "Neo Conservative," boys and girls. Because someone has to celebrate the right for cops to violently assault people in their wheelchairs. Or just plain kill them.
Stephen Taylor, proud, yadda yadda yadda, you know the rest.
