This guy amazes me. Unlike many in law enforcement, especially at the regulatory level, Sheriff Joe means to do his job, and doesn't back down easily. Kudos to Sheriff Joe. Smiley

two excerpts:

Quote
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Washington attorney said Tuesday they will not cooperate with an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into the sheriff's office until the feds name specific charges and reveal what they are looking for.
Arpaio also said Tuesday during a heavily attended press conference in Phoenix he will not be intimidated nor back down in his methods of crime sweeps that have netted the arrests of 4,000 illegal immigrants in the last two and a half months.
Arpaio's office is accused of racial profiling during crime sweeps and is the target of a civil rights violations investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division. Arpaio has called the investigation "politically motivated."


Quote
At least five officials from the Justice Department are in Phoenix now investigating the case.
The sheriff's office contends the Justice Department acted unethically by requesting documents of communications that had occurred between the sheriff's office and that of a federal official.
Communication between the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and the federal employee is protected by federal statutes, according to the sheriff's office.
"We're not going to surrender," Arpaio said. "We're going to have more crime supression operations. We can have all the activists, politicians in Washington, D.C., and everyone else trying to use me as the poster boy (for illegal immigrant arrests). We're not going to talk to the Civil Rights Division until they clean up their act."

Good for him. There should be more stubborn, obstinate, uncooperative people in positions to make real stands

Napolitano hated him when she was in AZ.  now she thinks she has a chance to shut him down.  sad thing is, with this admin., she may get her wish.  lets hope the people of AZ stand with him and tell the feds to shove it.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
