Arizona Sheriff: it's a "racist law" that would force deputies to racial profile

    Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik

    TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Pima County's top lawman says he has no intention of enforcing Arizona's controversial crackdown on illegal immigration. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik calls SB 1070 "racist," "disgusting," and "unnecessary."

    Speaking Tuesday morning with KGUN9's Steve Nunez, Dupnik made it clear that while he will not comply with the provisions of the new law, nor will he let illegal immigrants go free. "We're going to keep doing what we've been doing all along," Dupnik said. "We're going to stop and detain these people for the Border Patrol."

    The sheriff acknowledged that this course of action could get him hauled into court. SB 1070 allows citizens to sue any law enforcement official who doesn't comply with the law. But Dupnik told Nunez that SB 1070 would force his deputies to adopt racial profiling as an enforcement tactic, which Dupnik says could also get him sued. "So we're kind of in a damned if we do, damned if we don't situation. It's just a stupid law."

    Dupnik had harsh words for anyone who thinks SB 1070 will not lead to racial profiling. "If I tell my people to go out and look for A, B, and C, they're going to do it. They'll find some flimsy excuse like a tail light that's not working as a basis for a stop, which is a bunch of baloney."

    He would know...That's pretty much how they keep their coffers full with DUI loot.

    What should make illegals any better?

    The Republiclowns (Thanks sweetie) would argue that they are only "enforcing the law."

    Then why...ass-clown do you need to make a law to enforce the law?

    How IDIOTIC is that?

    Ask Sheriff Dupnik how he stops & detains"these people" for the border patrol?
    What does he ask for in order to determine if "these people" are here legally or illeally?
    Green cards that's what (Papers)
    What a farce!!!!
    I am always stoped in pima county when one of my tail lights are out and I'm white!
    They stop anybody who has a tail light out - black ,white, aisian, indian, all are stopped and given a warning or a fine.

    They passed a state law because the federales aren't enforcing the laws on the federal books.

    Google "jurisdiction", Chumlee.

    When Barry and his federales start enforcing the law, Arizona won't have to.

    When exactly does he plan on doing that BTW?

    Smart man
    He doesn't want to be caught up in a federal civil right's case and an ACLU law suite.

    If the police stop people they suspect of being illegal, there is just no way they can avoid stomping over legal residents civil rights. It is going to happen.
