I have reaching out to the Maricopa PIO, but they aren't responding.
Elizabeth S.- you are partially correct; the state DOES have more rights than it's citizens do (observe the attitude and case handling of the AZ atty gen's office against civil rights - there must be a public case study of their claims mis-handling somewhere - maybe filed next to the 6,000 CPS records that were also mis-handled). The news agencies willingly look the other way - why do you think their anchor people suffer from depression or relocate employment after years in our media market? While Nelson Mandela is a civil rights hero to most, he is seen as the opposite by those who would seek to deny basic civil rights and revel in flying the flag at full mast at his departure.
Arpaio sits in good company with another alleged toughest law man of a bygone era J. Edgar Hoover who only after his demise did the "real Hoover come forth from his closet", one has to wonder what a psychiatrist/psychologist would diagnosis is wrong with a man who likes to put other men in pink undies, feed them twice a day, feed them green bologna, deny them medical care, have inmates die mysteriously under his care? Sadist, devotee of the Marquis De Sade comes to my mind, he was one demented fellow of his time and guess Arpaio is in our time, racist is the least of the dark demons lurking in Arpaio's closet!
Hahaa.. Yeah that's not very good. Worst part about it is I don't know if I actually wrote that (I hope not) or if I spelled exorbitant wrong, and my computer, who thinks it is smart, corrected me - to that.
I write all day, and that is not even close to the worst mishap my chubby fingers have churned out on a key board.
Again though, not like the old Dirty Dozen days. I like it the way it was, I will go check it out, but, well, we will see.
Perhaps attracting some frat boys, but I see DD in there quite often.
Many people would find anything racist that has anything whatsoever to do with any blacks. If you dont like obama or his policies you get called a racist when race has nothing to do with it, he is just a lousy president.
Yes, Mandela brought peace to South Africa, but through terrorism! He was an admitted communist and terrorist that plotted from his cell. Yes some of his biggest supporters were communists. Why should we lower the flag for him? No he was not an American and did nothing for America, yet obummer goes to his funeral. Margaret Thatcher was our closest allie during the cold wat and this idiot of a president sent no one! Was that disrespect called racist by whites? Btw, the separation of powers piece was right on. Too bad our schools didnt teach civics and government better, and with common core they are only going to get worse.
All these civic lessons and they do not seem to include freedom of speech. The fact that the sherrif's office is controlling what a news agency is disbursing is completely ignored while we are lectured on state's rights.
Well, what's there is better than "absorbent", which was what I saw this morning. :-)
Although the court filing indicating that the new firm is additional, and not a straight substitution of law firms, adds nuance to the story, I doubt the real story is different from what the district released to the Star. It makes sense that with a case of this type of factual intensity, TUSD would want old and new counsel to work together in transition. I doubt that HT's desire for a fresh look means that he wants to pay two, instead of one law firm for the long run. His comments indicate the opposite. Judge Brammer's connections with both firms are interesting. Mari is correct. We will have to wait and see.
To those who commented on my post, I think you missed the point. I was not supporting Arpaio's decision, I was attempting to make an ironic comment about his politics as April 30th, 1945 marks the death of Adolf Hitler. Ignorance is evidently not limited to the right wing.
Thieves and Con Artists.............
I ate there twice last week. Very good.. the Flank steak was excellent as were the salads and the pannecota was excellent...
Zed: *Hint* It has to do with ending Apartheid.
*2nd Hint* It also has to do with establishing freedom and democracy in South Africa, and successfully bringing reconciliation between people there.
Please don't leave this story hanging out there. Were the flags lowered or not? If they were then at least update.
Please validate whether this story was ever true. I see nothing about this story on any news source.
los betos still the best . . .
I am sure I did, not sure what I wrote though, as it has been changed.
Downtown had to grow up sometime but unfortunately, it took those with deep pockets to make this happen. Perhaps the 4th ave underpass is becoming a dividing line. Funky 4th and Congress street too good for us plebes.
Did you mean "exorbitant"?
Decades ago, they had a smashed Honda and a smashed Yamaha outside, over the doors.
