Unbelievable. In a society based on law and order, grounded in a deep sense of the equality of all people, a loose cannon sociopathic sheriff is being given free reign. Where are the federal authorities?

The sheriff’s office is blaming the Phoenix police department, but the sheriff’s office won’t release the video.

[…]

In the written statement, the Sheriff’s Office emphasized the role of Phoenix police, saying Atencio “continued to be abusive with arresting officers” after he was brought to the jail, that “Phoenix Police were forced to continue using defensive efforts,” that Sheriff’s Office staff assisted police in restraining him and that “medical personnel advised Phoenix Police and Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office staff to place the arrestee in a safe cell.”

But Phoenix police, in a written statement provided by spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos, said, “To date, we have not been provided with specific details as to our officers’ actions during this struggle, in part because we have not been provided any video of this struggle” by the Sheriff’s Office. Martos said that each law-enforcement agency is conducting its own investigation.

“We understand, preliminarily, our officers did not Tase (use a stun gun on) this individual,” Martos’ statement said. “Though we have not completed our investigation, we have no information at this time (that) Mr. Atencio struggled with any of our officers prior to getting to the MCSO jail,” he said. “We also understand, once MCSO staff took custody of Mr. Atencio and placed him in a safe cell, our officers had no further involvement or contact with him.”

Damn good question. This wild west mentality has to stop.

This bullshit of police getting away with murder, and lying about, has to stop. They have all the rights: the rights to whatever story they want to make up, the right to deadly force, and the right to suppress evidence.

Fucking sick of it.

Leave Joe Arpaio alone. Yes, he is a lying, murderous, bigoted tyrant. But he is a lying, murderous, bigoted, right-wing tyrant, so he’s cool. We need more a-holes like him.

Just in case: /sarc

So…can Arpaio and/or anyone in his department be charged with a crime over this?

I’d almost hate to seem him to go to any kind of trial, as he’d instantly become a right wing martyr of sorts, but I’d also hate to see no one punished for this.
