Why are judges such muppets?
This is not a comment about the rights and wrongs of immigration in the US but the stupidity of judges.
"The office of an Arizona lawman who styles himself America's toughest sheriff improperly targeted Hispanics in routine patrols for undocumented immigrants, a federal judge has found."
Now if a sheriff targets Mexicans as illegal immigrants when he is 20 miles from the Mexican border how can that be wrong? He clearly isn't having problems from other countries.
As a side note as far as I am concerned the sheriff is suitably tough on criminals.
Sheriff Arpaio set up a "Tent City" as an extension of the Maricopa County jail. During the summer of 2003, when outside temperatures exceeded 110 °F (43 °C), Arpaio said to complaining inmates, "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and the soldiers are living in tents, have to wear full body armor, and they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your mouths."
