It is NOT wrong! Until Sheriff Joe Arpaio learns not to racially profile people he and MCSO and all of Maricopa county should pay! In fact ALL OF ARIZONA should pay!

Maricopa County could keep lawyers' fees down by adopting less of a scorched earth policy in defending such cases. It has only itself to blame for the $7.3 number.

The people of Maricopa County must not mind all the higher taxes they have to pay due to Arpaio's actions since they keep on electing him.

It's a touchy situation out there dealing with the drug dealers coming across the borders. And it got worse with the so called Militia's who simply go too far. And anytime you get bigotry thrown in the mix there's bound to be serious legal trouble.

There is a difference between the victims fleeing across the border and the organized crime members fleeing over the border. They simply can't discern and end up putting everyone into the same category.

It's a mixture of very frightened citizens wanting to protect their homes, which I understand, and a group of innocent victims who are mixed in and among some very serious criminals coming across our borders. It's a mess and real shame.

There ought to be civil rights scoreboards that track how much money violators have cost their political subdivisions.
