Arizona is a mess. Sheriff Joe doesn't investigate hundres of sex abuse cases. Child welfare is horriable. Education sucks. Public officials rip off pension funds. Fire fighters command structure fails. Power plants pollute the air. The list goes on bt enough said. Main attractions are warm weather and no estate tax.

Arpaio has abused his power but until there is a majority of Hispanics in the county the office will be his. Snowbirds think he is wonderful for keeping the "tent jail" with meals that are insufficient. However, they aren't in AZ in the summer when the temps can reach in the 100's with wind blowing sand. The Sheriff should be living and eating in a tent by them. He wouldn't be an obese officer and could MAYBE run after a true criminal. But, he makes sure the white people become terrified of those with brown faces (remember, they are ALL illegals!)
