Why I’m Currently Not the Biggest Fan of Police

By Carlos Miller (Original here)
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s detention officer who was caught on video swiping a document from the case file of a defense attorney was found incontempt of court Wednesday.

But in typical fashion, he will get off with a slap on his wrist under Judge Gary Donahoe’s ruling.

All Adam Stoddard needs to do to put that charge behind him is to call a press conference and make a public apology to defense attorney Joanne Cuccia.

If he fails to do that by December 1, he will be ordered to report to jail.

So you would think he would comply with the judge’s order and be done with it.

Not if Sheriff Joe Arpaio has anything to do with it.

“My officer was doing his job and I will not stand by and allow him to be thrown to the wolves by the courts because they feel pressure from the media on this situation,” Arpaio said in a press release. He further said, “I decide who holds press conferences and when they are held regarding this Sheriff’s Office.”

Considering Arpaio runs the jails, he will probably ensure that Stoddard never serves a day in jail.

Under Arizona law, contempt of court is considered a Class 2 Misdemeanor and punishable by up to four months in jail.

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
