Re: Investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office

Esteemed Representatives and Members of the Public in Attendance:


The Barrio Defense Committees consider the presence of J. Arpaio in the schools of our community as a criminal act of child abuse of our innocent children that causes long lasting emotional trauma to our students and damages the confidence of our community with the public school systems themselves as accomplices to this abusive behavior.

As a criminal act that violates the civil and human rights of our children, we demand that the Justice Department remove the veil of impunity that that Mr. Arpaio abuses in order to realize an investigation and bring prosecution against the current Maricopa County Sheriff (J. Arpaio) for these criminal offenses of child abuse of involving our unprotected children in violation of the Right of Equal Protection under the US Constitution and the Plyler v. Doe Supreme Court decision which is the law of the land.

Mr. Arpaio has time and again demonstrated the abuse of power with a threatening and unprofessional attitude, implementing policies and practices of racial discrimination under color of law, i.e. AZ SB1070, which is openly proclaimed as a legislative tactic to foment a "War of Attrition" against our community as a whole, and Mexicans in particular.

A War of Attrition cannot be regulated, it cannot be softened with Pacts with the Devil when these “law enforcement” officials obstruct and manipulate with blatant abuse of power their public office, openly acting to thwart any existing or proposed regulation that would command that JUSTICE be the standard for delivery of public services.

We are all members of the public.  We all pay taxes for public services. Correspondingly, the attitude and performance of public servants must protect Civil Rights and respect the Human Rights of each person without discrimination.

THEREFORE, for the reasons stated and the utter lack of professionalism and respect for civil and human rights we demand the immediate intervention of the Department of Justice to end this regime of abuse against our children and families, our communities and public institutions by J. Arpaio and install the position of interim sheriff for Maricopa County with an authority appointed by the Department of Justice.

"Stopping Mexicans to make sure they are legal is not racist.  If you have dark skin, you have dark skin! Unfortunately, that is the look of the Mexican illegal."
