Petition Closed

Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio has a long history of abuse of authority, violations of civil rights, and misuse of taxpayer funds. Shortly after he first took office in the early 1990s, his pattern of abhorrent activity began to emerge. Under his direction, unconvicted inmates have been tortured and lost their lives. He has misused more than $100 million from a special tax fund for jail construction; a four year investigation into practices at his jails has determined that he has established patterns and practices of unconstitutional policing.

Joseph Arpaio has violated the US Constitution and the civil rights of hundreds, if not thousands of American citizens.

He has made it very clear that he has NO INTENTION of correcting his unlawful practices willingly.

Time is of the essence.

Call on United States Attorney General Eric Holder to BRING THIS CASE TO TRIAL.

(The most salient 8 minutes of the video, Paul Charlton's remarks, begin about 21 minutes into the clip. It should be available to fast forward to that point).
