Sheriff Joe Rounds Up A Posse

By Wyatt Earp | November 19, 2010

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing a truly thankless job. The Arizona sheriff is fighting the good fight against illegal immigration, and he is getting stonewalled by our our federal government. It would seem that the toads in Washington are more concerned with the illegals than the officers enforcing the laws. Go figure, huh?

The situation has gotten so bad in Arizona that Arpaio has enlisted help from celebrities to take the fight to the criminals.

Some of the names may surprise you.

“America’s toughest sheriff,” Phoenix’s Joe Arpaio, is creating an armed “Immigration Posse” to combat illegal immigration, and Hollywood actors Steven Seagal and Lou Ferrigno, along with Dick Tracy and Wyatt Earp, have signed up.

Fighting Justice Department accusations that his office discriminated against illegal immigrants during arrests, Sheriff Arpaio said the civilian posse of more than 50 members gives citizens a chance to fight the problem inundating their border state. (H/TCode Monkey)

It’s good to know Obama and Holder have our backs.

“Law enforcement budgets are being cut and agencies are losing personnel and yet the battle to stop illegal immigration must continue,” said the sheriff, who heads the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. “Arizona is the busiest port of entry for people being smuggled in from Mexico, Latin and South America. So asking for the public’s help in this endeavor makes sense, especially given the success the posses have experienced over the years.”

The sheriff also said Dick Tracy, a retired Chicago police official who now lives in Arizona, has joined the posse, along with Wyatt Earp, a Phoenix resident whose uncle was the Old West lawman of the same name.

Feel free to laugh, but they need all the help than can get down there. And no, the Wyatt Earp here is not me, but if I lived closer I would have gladly signed up.

    Did you see that Texas has put together tactical squads to go after drug runners coming across the border? I wonder how long until Holder and Obama sue the state of Texas to stop them from doing the Feds job of securing the border.

    Holder made his oats by representing prisoners at Git-mo and now he is in charge of the Justice Department. Why is it that Liberals always appoint people to high positions in government that have made a name for themselves by fighting the government.

    See, I’d be happy if they put people in who fought gov’t, but not the ones who fought America.

    Arpaio fights the gov’t, Holder fought America.

    Peter Lupus is 78 years old. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

    Is he in charge of rounding up illegal geezers ?

    Sheriff Joe is the standard by which all others should be judged.

    When Jack Bauer joins Sheriff Joe’s posse, I’ll know they’re serious.

    Howdy Wyatt – well not only is Holder’s DOJ going after AZ, claimng that AZ’s new immigration law “usurps” Federal Law, he isn’t doing a DAMN THING about the Sanctuary cities (e.g, San Francisco and NYC) who are flouting Federal Law.
    And, of course, they are accussed by at least three named attornies in the DOJ of deliberately NOT defending the rights of White Americans in Voter Fraud, Intimidation or other “Civil Rights” cases.

    Somehow I KNEW Segall would be in the mix w/ his LE background…now, if Chuck Norris signs on, we got us a new “A-Team”…LOL!

    If Sheriff Joe ever needs anyone in the MIDWEST to monitor traffic to (or from) AZ, he can pin the badge on ME and deputize my ass…ANY day.
    Go get ‘em, Joe!

    Arpaio is a genuine American hero, and the left hates him for it. I would honestly love one day to see him appointed to a federal post, one where he could deal with this problem on a national level, with all the resources of the federal government at his disposal.

    At the very least, he should one day consider running to replace McCain or Kyle.

    Sheriff A.: I’d pay to join in–how about a posse camp-I’d pay to enjoy the experience. I’d even bring my own guns/ ammo/ bedroll. You might even be able to make some money out of it.
