Illegal alien airwaves?

27 July 2008

This is the kind of thing you read about regularly:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is facing more accusations of racial profiling stemming from his ongoing crackdown on illegal immigrants. This time, four U.S. citizens claim they were stopped and mistreated by sheriff’s deputies because they are Latino.

In one case, a brother and sister say deputies unnecessarily stopped them in front of their north Phoenix auto-repair shop and forced them out of the car with weapons raised….

What the Arizona Republic didn’t say was what suspicious activity the brother and sister were engaged in. According to Univision (via Cuilican Noroeste), the brother and sister Manuel Nieto and Velia Meraz were doing something shady… sitting in front of their auto shop listening to the radio… in Spanish. 

Yup, they’re gonna sue.

    Sheriff Arpaio will ALWAYS face accusations of racial profiling, and they’ll be coming from illegal alien supporters like YOU, because the false accusation is all you have to go on.
