Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arpiao's Head

Posted August 3rd, 2010 by berserker13

PHOENIX - He's been at the center of the discussions and controversies surrounding illegal immigration enforcement in Arizona for quite a while.

On the day parts of Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070, went into effect, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in the news for another reason: there's a price on his head - allegedly offered by a Mexican drug cartel.

The audio message in Spanish is a bit garbled, but the text is clear.

It's offering $1 million for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's head and $10,000 for anyone who wants to join the Mexican cartel.

I hope the price is high

I hope the price is high enough to get rid of him.

I wasn't clear, it

I wasn't clear, it seems.

Enough to get him to QUIT.

I did not, and would not, advocate murder. Just retirement.

I don't like the guy either but..

I don't like this guy either, but a bounty on his head will not solve the problem. This is simular to the War on Drugs and the way they attack the drug lords. If you knock one off, another one will just take its place, and I doubt the replacement will be any better. All this will do is give the feds ANOTHER EXCUSE to invade someone else's privacy in the name of protection, and on top of that, advocating murder is not appropiate in this situation.

Murder is wrong
