America’s Toughest Sheriff Fails To Protect Children

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office has been discovered to have failed to investigate more than 400 sex crimes reported during a three year period.  In El Mirage alone, where Sheriff Arpaio’s office was providing contract services, there were 32 reported child molestations where law enforcement failed to investigate.  The suspects were known in all but six cases.
 
Sheriff Arpaio has described himself as America’s Toughest Sheriff and is a hero to many people because of his tough stance on illegal immigration.  Interestingly, most of the victims of these sex crimes were children of illegal immigrants.  I guess in his mind, if your parents are illegal, who cares if you are being sexually abused….
