Sheriff Paul Babeu: American Hero

By Wyatt Earp | August 3, 2010

There is just something different about Arizona sheriffs. Maybe it is because they are dealing with a modern-day version of the Old West, where everyone has a gun, everyone is breaking the law, and only the strongest of lawmen can survive. For most of us, it is 2010. For them, it is Tombstone circa 1881.

These folks are just tougher than the rest of us. They are also the types of people you do not want to piss off. Sadly, that is what the federal government is doing them on a continual basis. Now the sheriffs are fighting back.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu is hopping mad at the federal government. Babeu told that rather than help law enforcement in Arizona stop the hundreds of thousands of people who come into the United States illegally, the federal government is targeting the state and its law enforcement personnel.

“What’s very troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of sending help they put up billboard-size signs warning our citizens to stay out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind that, they drag us into court with the ACLU,” Babeu said.

“So who has partnered with the ACLU?” Babeu said in a telephone interview with “It’s the president and (Attorney General) Eric Holder himself. And that’s simply outrageous.”

Is he wrong? Instead of going to war against the illegals and the drug cartels, the administration has decided to pick a fight with one of its own border states. Change!

“Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help,” Babeu said.

Instead of help, the Obama administration is giving Arizona a big Frak You enchilada. Of course, Rhode Island is enforcing Arizona’s policy, but the president isn’t suing them. I wonder why?

    Could it be?
    A new “Sheriff Joe-in-training”?

    Let us all HOPE SO.
    We can use as many as we can get…ASAP.


    Stay safe.

    Heading to AZ first week of Oct to the county of Sheriff Joe. Great people and great place to visit. Straightup Americans, native Americans, Hispanic Americans, Black Americans, European Americans and Asian Americans 4 generations removed from the wild west. Go to the supermarket in Pinal County and people are wearing gun belts not because of racism but for protection. Love to parachute a group of these know nothing Liberals into Nogales one night and see who is left in the morning

    Captain – He sounds like he is one of the good guys.

    Bob G – Yeah, they need as many as possible.

    Crusty – When we spent a week in Tucson, I didn’t want to leave. Most beautiful place on Earth.

    I have watched several pundits on Fox interview Babeu. Straight shooter and we need more of them!

    It appears, like Sheriff Joe, he too is getting someone’s attention;

    I pray they can prevail in the courtroom, as well as in the field. We need more like them (the sheriffs, not the loonies in DC).

    Kinda makes you want to move to AZ just to help out. A crying shame when a state writes a law that MIRRORS the federal statutes and then gets pissed on for trying to implement the law. Where have you gone Ronaldus Maximus, our nation turns it’s lonely eyes to you.

    MeToo – People like him should be lined up at the border to keep it secure.

    911 – Of course. But the MSM wants to focus upon the AZ judge’s threats, as if the ones on the sheriffs don’t matter.

    Robert B. – It’ll go to the Supremes, and (eventually) the law will be found to be Constitutional.

    Roger – And yet, no one makes a stink about Rhode Island. Funny that, huh?
