Crappy Christmas, Sheriff Joe. F**k you very much.


(Reuters) - A federal judge on Friday barred high profile Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio from detaining people simply for being in the country illegally, in a ruling that faulted the local lawman for enforcing federal immigration law.

The 40-page written opinion by U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow came on the same day he issued legal sanctions against Arpaio over destroyed documents.

The decisions come as a further blow for the controversial sheriff, who already has faced rebukes from the U.S. Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security.

Both rulings by Snow stemmed from a 2007 civil lawsuit against Arpaio and his agency, which accuses his officers of racial profiling of Latinos in traffic stops the judge found were conducted as immigration sweeps. .................(more)

3. Way too soon!

Actually, that would have been catastrophic for too many people. Perhaps we could just take Arpaio, Jan Brewer, and any of the other wingnut cases in Arizona, and simply make certain that a nice chunk of space junk lands on their heads. That's all we need--nothing apocalyptic.
