The federal government has closed a criminal probe into Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio, who styles himself as "America's toughest sheriff," and no charges will be filed, the U.S. Attorney's Office said on Friday.

The Maricopa County sheriff and his deputies have been under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department since 2008.

Last December, the department said he and his office violated U.S. civil rights laws by engaging in racial profiling of Latinos and making unlawful arrests in their bid to crack down on illegal immigrants.

2. Try living here!

I live in Maricopa county, the nutjob capital of Arizona. The number of people high fiving that, "the law and order Sheriff", took the, "O'bammy",
adminstration to school is horrifying.
He is an abusive, mysoginistic, racist, bully. He has no respect for anyone's law and order but his own. Just ask the 400 sex crime victims in El Mirage.

4. Does the "Justice" Department ever charge anybody with anything?

It wouldn't have bothered me even a little bit if the congress could have forced Holder out over fast & furious.

The guy is as worthless as tits on a boar hog and if he doesn't pursue these republican voter suppression schemes, he could well cost his boss the presidency.
