Yesterday we reported on the fact that the DOJ was going to begin investigating Joe Arpaio for civil rights abuses.
And he was interviewed by Megyn Kelly on Fox News.
The DOJ wants to put in an independent monitor to oversee the behavior in his office. Joe Arpaio wants nothing of it! And will take him to court.
He says that he is responsible to the 4 million citizens of Maricopa County not to the federal bureaucrats in Washington.
The Feds say Latinos are 4-9 times more likely to be stopped than non-Latinos by Arpaio’s officers. And they are punished if they are unable to understand commands in English. Arpaio says they have no proof of it.
Arpaio: "If we go to court, that’s great! Then we’ll see the true story come out. I don’t think they want to go to court, they don’t have the evidence… What is this a poker game?"
