A blog that specializes in criticizing the Phoenix police argues that Judge Gary Donahoe, recent target of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has a bad record of aiding and abetting overly-easy search warrants. I am willing to believe that -- I think about every judge in the nation is too close to police and prosecutors on search warrant issues. But I don't think this is why Sheriff Joe is after him. Sheriff Joe likes to make the wrong-address no-knock raid as much as anyone, and protection of civil rights has never been in Arpaio's top 100 or so concerns. So Danahoe may have issues, but I Sheriff Joe's charges against him are likely pure power play.
