Uh oh. It looks like fascist Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio has pissed that judge in his contempt case off once again. After failing to turn over documents he was ordered to produce, the judge ordered federal marshals to seize the information from his office.
A federal judge on Friday ordered U.S. marshals to seize documents from the office of controversial Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio as part of an ongoing racial profiling case.
U.S. District Judge Murray Snow issued the order at an emergency hearing he convened after a court-appointed monitor reported that the sheriff’s office had failed to turn over information being sought in connection with the case.
In a brief order, Snow required that 1,459 identifications apparently taken from people by sheriff’s deputies during law enforcement actions and which were about to be destroyed be produced for federal marshals.The judge also ordered that computer hard drives, documents and other materials related to an investigation involving the judge by a confidential informant be given to marshals by the end of the day on Friday.
Arpaio, the longtime Maricopa County sheriff, did not attend the last-minute afternoon hearing held in U.S. District Court in Phoenix…
U.S. Marshal David Gonzales told Reuters that the information ordered by the court had been seized by early on Friday night.
I’m sure Larry Klayman and the Worldnetdaily will be along quickly to explain how this is a terrible injustice that proves that he’s biased against Arpaio and that Obama really is the reincarnation of Muhammad and Karl Marx and was born in Kenya.
