Is it true that Joe Arpaio owns/has major shares inthe companies supplying inmate sundry items? Is that how he finances his real estate purchases in cash?[New Times article June 2004]
When you look at the facts behind the incredibly dodgy Joe Arpaio , it is terrifying though not surprising right wing newspapers such as the Daily Mail choose to publish rubbish about how great he is and how we should bring that kind of tough justice to the UK. in the current climate of fear being hyped by the tabloid media surrounding so-called hoodies and yobs in Britain we will have to ensure a sensible debate on the issue and not fall into the trap of thinking Joe's methods work - when phoenix crime stats show quite clearly they don't.
In the 1930s Lord Rothermere [owner of the Daily Mail] moved further to the right and gave support to Oswald Mosley and the National Union of Fascists. He wrote an article, Hurrah for the Blackshirts, in January, 1934, in which he praised Mosley for his "sound, commonsense, Conservative doctrine".Rothermere also had several meetings with Adolf Hitler and argued that the Nazi leader desired peace. In one article written in March, 1934 he called for Hitler to be given back land in Africa that had been taken as a result of the treaty of Versailles.Small wonder that the present Daily Mail crew think Joe Arpiao is a role model!
Don't know if you had heard but an Irish court refused to extradite someone to Arizona. His defence came to court with a newspaper clipping showing Arizona prisoners being marched in pink underwear through a local town. The Irish judge threw the extradition warrant out and demanded the U.S. ambassador explain the incident before granting the extradition. The U.S. have now guaranteed the prisoner will go to a federal lock up instead. Anyway, keep smilin Darryl
