Frequent readers will know that I have little love for our self-aggrandizing, civil rights violating Sheriff Joe Arpaio. A recent Arizona Republic article wrote:
A veteran Republican lawmaker wants to know why a high-level chief for
the Maricopa County Sheriff has made recent trips to China.
Because China is Sheriff Joe's role model! It's telling that our sheriff sends his deputies on fact-finding missions to Latin American countries and China to learn new policing techniques. Also, the article gets into some of the increasingly weird dealings in the Sheriff Joe's infatuation with facial recognition software.
