Arpaio supporters to hold march April 28

Backers of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will stage a march in Fountain Hills to show their appreciation for the sheriff and help support him at a time when he faces some of his toughest criticism.

The march will be held on Saturday, April 28.

Organizer Andi Bell says it’s about time that someone hold a march a rally for the sheriff, given that anti-Arpaio protesters often demonstrate at the sheriff’s events.

Arpaio has faced criticism for his office’s inadequate investigations of hundreds of sex-crimes cases and for allegations by Justice Department that the sheriff’s office has committed a wide range of civil rights violations.

Many Arpaio critics have recently called for the sheriff’s resignation.

The sheriff has vehemently rejected resignation calls and is seeking a sixth term this year.

  1. I’ll be happy to be there to show my support for Sheriff Joe. I’m so tired of all of the nonsense being spewed by the open borders crowd and Obama fans. I’ve lived in Maricopa county all of my life and I’m an American of Mexican descent. The only racism I’ve ever experienced has been from fellow Latinos/Hispancs who call me a ‘coconut’ because I support Sheriff Joe, SB1070 and the Rule of Law. They tell me I should be standing with ‘my people’… apparently they just can’t or don’t want to relate to the idea of a person of their ethnicity just being an American. We can’t allow people like that to railroad good people like Sheriff Joe out of office for doing the job that we have elected and re-elected him to do. They have been emboldened by their success with getting Russell Pearce recalled. We’ve got to stop them. Can you imagie what they’ll do with our beautiful state if they get control? If we aren’t willing to fight for people like Pearce and Arpaio then we will surely be finding out soon.

  2. joe is on the way out just like thomas and pearce both losers, like you and your attitude ! these people are criminals and should be locked up these are
    race terrorist full of hate, and discontent losers. get a life!

  3. Citizen / Voter / Taxpayer

    No amount of marching and rallying will make up for this disgraceful neglect, while other offenders, first-time, non-violent have been sentenced to 75 years for alleged \touching\ in a public pool….. An \easy\ conviction in an election year.

    \Arpaio has faced criticism for his office’s inadequate investigations of hundreds of sex-crimes cases and for allegations by Justice Department that the sheriff’s office has committed a wide range of civil rights violations.\

  4. Need a rally for those who support the Constitution and a balanced justice system where the officials do NOT have absolute immunity. The Maricopa County sheriff belongs in prison along with the many county sheriffs around the country who have abused their power. The San Francisco sheriff will lose his position for hitting his wife! How many have been murdered under this decades long reign of terror on the county and state.

  5. Why is it Ok to stage an anti-Arpaio rally, but a pro Joe rally is only for racists, terrorists and losers. Face it. There are a lot of us who are proud of the job Joe Arpaio has done. He may not be politically correct or say the most unoffensive things, but he has the citizens interests up front. He gets the job done. We have laws and he enforces them. That’s the way it works. If you don’t like the law, change it. Stop whining. You turn more people against your cause by your militant, in your face posturing. We are over it. See you in November!
