    The outcome of the federal grand jury investigating allegations of criminal conduct in the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is impossible to predict, but news of the panel left some county employees and observers relieved and others confounded.

    Two county executives said Thursday they are preparing to testify next week before the grand jury, which is looking into allegations of misconduct in the Sheriff's Office.

    Prosecutors can't discuss grand-jury proceedings in the interest of protecting the accused, but witnesses can disclose information. County Manager David Smith and Deputy County Manager Sandi Wilson contend the questions revolve around allegations that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has abused his power as a law-enforcement official. If that's true, the proceedings could trigger criminal charges of civil-rights violations
    Joe Arpaio, MCSO investigation may not lead to indictment

    I could have told you this was coming the day our former Gov. got selected to head Homeland Security. What the Fed. does not seem to understand here is that Sheriff Joe has been elected many many times to that office and is very popular here and by doing this, they further seperate themselves from a large majority of people here in Arizona. this has little if anything to do with corruption in the MCSO and lot more to do with the Sheriff Joe's policy of arresting illegals and holding them for deportation.

    Just because a perso has been elected 5 times DOES NOT give him the free and clear to break the law, does it Navy? Should they be exempt from any inquiry in to their supposed law breaking?

    I'm sure that Sheriff Joe is popular, but let us remember that popular isn't always right. Lester Maddox was elected Governor of Georgia due to his popularity in chasing black people out of his store with an axe handle.

    Is this the same sheriff that kept a woman shackled during childbirth?

    My money is on this being purely political in nature because Sheriff Joe made the feds look bad by enforcing their laws when they wouldn't. The leftists and globalists have been looking for any way possible to drive him out of office, and may have it.

    We'll see, but my money is on political fraud and false charges that nobody will be held accountable for making, just like they weren't when done to Palin.

    so you think forcing a woman to give birth while shackled is acceptable?
