Joe Arpaio's Armed Posse At Schools
Sheriff Joe Arpaio represents everything that is wrong with law enforcement. Arpaio's latest bad idea is having an all volunteer posse patrol the outside perimeters of public schools. The details are scarce. That is probably because Sheriff Joe put no thought behind the policy.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio tells KTVK-TV he has the authority to mobilize private citizens to fight crime but hasn't talked to specific districts. He says he doesn't plan to put posse members inside schools but will have them posted around the perimeters.It is like Sheriff Joe takes his law enforcement cues from the right-wing blogosphere.
