Joe Arpaio Racial Profiling Case Delayed

June 17, 2013  | 

A federal judge who ruled an Arizona sheriff's office racially profiled Latinos delayed instituting remedies Friday to allow parties time to agree on options, but he indicated a court-appointed monitor likely would be assigned to assure the agency is complying with constitutional requirements.

In May, U.S. District Judge Murray Snow concluded that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office has systematically singled out Latinos in its immigration patrols and that deputies unreasonably prolonged the detentions of people who were pulled over, marking the first finding by a court that the agency engages in racial profiling.

Snow delayed issuing any orders in the case Friday after parties on both sides indicated they wanted time to work toward an agreement that could be approved by the court. He set an Aug. 30 hearing to revisit the issue.

Right. The MCSO should be profiling all those tall, blond Swedes instead. The doj has been harassing this department for years, being too dense to comprend the crime stats. This whole deal stinks to high heaven of a plot to end the enforcement of State Laws by one of the few LEOs not cowed by holder and his gang of thugs. Blues, Stay Safe.
