Middle school gives Sheriff Arpaio the cold shoulder
SAN FRANCISCO -
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio spent the day in California on Friday for a trade
convention and planned on visiting middle school students, but that meeting was cancelled.
Arpaio, known for his stringent crackdown on illegal immigration, didn't get a warm
welcome from the students on Friday.
The man known as "America's Toughest Sheriff" had no problem signing pink boxer
shorts and books at a trade convention for the burglar alarm industry in San Francisco,
but getting past the doors at James Lick Middle School was tougher than he thought.
In advance of the Sheriff's visit, 50 students sent him letters -- in Spanish,
telling him how they disagree with his law enforcement tactics.
Arpaio called some of what the children wrote, "nasty."

2. CALIFORNIA STUDENTS RULE!!!
This is so royal that students came together to tell the old timer to CRAM IT.
This will send shock waves back to the GOP that California has teens who will ready to vote DEMOCRATIC in a few years when they will be OLD WHITE MEN ready for the old folks home.

6. The comments at the link in the OP.
What people were saying about the kids. They are pretty offensive.
I agree... not much can be more offensive then Arpaio... but Rove, Bush and a few others come to mind!
'Arpaio called some of what the children wrote, "nasty." ' I was commenting that the comments left at the paper by Arpaio supporters were nasty.
