Arrest Report:Obama “fanatic” threatens to kill Sheriff Arpaio

The 33-year old Cox was arrested Friday and taken into custody on an unrelated arrest warrant for an aggravated assault and is currently being investigated as the prime suspect in the Arpaio death threat investigation.
In addition to repeatedly blasting Sheriff Arpaio, the Justice Department is expected to file a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Arizona asking a federal judge to order changes in the sheriff's office.
Critics of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama believe the Arpaio case is designed to coincide with the U.S. Supreme Court's hearing on Arizona's immigration law (SB1070), and as strategy to strengthen the president's position with the Hispanic voting base.
"It's not beyond Obama's bag of tricks to portray border security proponents as racist and xenophobic," warns former police commander Mike Snopes.
Meanwhile, Homeland Security Department Secretary Janet Napolitano wasted no time piling on Arpaio. She stripped his department of its authority to enforce immigration laws and regulations.
"Accordingly, and effective immediately, DHS is terminating (the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office's) 287(g) jail model agreement and is restricting the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office access to the Secure Communities program," stated Napolitano.
Ironically, it was less than a year ago that a top Obama immigration official defended the Maricopa County Sheriff’s program to crackdown on illegal immigration, which clearly triggered the DOJ racial profiling investigation, according to the Judicial Watch blog.
Dozens of illegal aliens with criminal records have been apprehended, restoring law and order in a large Phoenix business district rife with solicitation, trespassing, loitering and public health ordinance violations created by day laborers.
Earlier this year the assistant secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (John Morton) said there was no evidence of racial profiling by deputies in Maricopa County and that the majority of the illegal immigrants arrested have been convicted of serious crimes, according to the Judicial Watch blog.
“Sixty nine percent of the people we receive in Maricopa County have been convicted of Level 1 and Level 2 offenses, which are serious felony offenses, drug trafficking, assaults, rape,” Morton said during a meeting with editors of a local newspaper.
He added that the Maricopa program has been consistent with meeting his agency’s priority of arresting illegal immigrants who commit serious crimes.
