Joe Arpaio hired a convicted child-sex criminal for armed school “posse”

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Responding to calls from the National Rifle Association to arm teachers and school officials, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio vowed to deploy his gun-toting volunteers to monitor Arizona schools. Members of the 3,450-strong group began patrolling in January, and the sheriff’s office announced recently that the program will continue into next year. But the thing is, no schools have actually requested this service from Sheriff Joe, and it’s easy to understand why.

Local news affiliate KPHO reported on Arpaio’s “posse” and found that the sheriff hired sex offenders, domestic abusers and other members with criminal records to “serve and protect” Phoenix-area schools.

Let’s start with Dominic Boulter, who was arrested — and convicted — for crimes against children.

1. These are the "responsible gun owners" we hear so much about

The gun nuts are constantly providing us more evidence to show how badly gun control is needed. If our gun laws have become so permissive that a child molester is allowed to patrol outside our schools with guns then perhaps we need to stop listening to the gun nuts and do something to stop these sick assholes.

5. Well think of who he turned down...

There's not a lot to choose from when your putting together a posse in central Arizona. The big cities in Maricopa don't have many cowboys. They're mostly desert rats. Think of the rapists and murderers that didn't make the cut.

11. And the complete lack of math ability

“I’ve put hundreds of thousands if not millions of hours into my weapons training,” adding he would do “anything” to protect Arizona’s children.

A million hours would be 114 years straight, no potty breaks or sleeping. "hundreds of thousands" implies at least 2 hundred thousand. Which would be 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, for 68 years. No days off.
