In relation to the perp suing the four Police Agencies. there should be an immediate hearing to hear the case and it should be dismissed according to the Frivolous Charges rule. These cases tie up too many court rooms and police officers. Start fining the persons making frivolous charges for their indiscretion, especially when it is from committing an out right crime!

In regards to Arizona suing the Federal government for not guarding its borders and allowing illegals to penetrate into their state. I think it is great! Now a Class action suit shouldbe brought by California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Florida to get the Federal government off their butts and enforcing the laws. More jails are needed like th one that Sheriff has in Arizona. No frills just work.
