    Demonstrators briefly disrupt sheriff's book-signing event

    A book signing by Sheriff Joe Arpaio turned rambunctious Saturday after a few protesters made their way into a Barnes & Noble.

    About 45 people gathered outside the Scottsdale bookstore on Shea Boulevard near Loop 101 on Saturday around 1 p.m., an hour before the sheriff spoke about his latest book, Joe's Law.

    They held signs on sidewalks at the busy Shea Boulevard and Pima Road intersection with messages such as, "No human being is illegal" and, "Arrest real criminals." advertisement




    Chris Fleischman, a retired engineer from Phoenix, said he's been protesting against the sheriff since last fall.

    He said one of the reasons he opposes Arpaio is the sheriff's well-publicized immigration sweeps.

    Fleischman said the sweeps did not make cities safer.

    He also questioned Arpaio's reporting of his approval ratings and about the number of arrests made by his office.

    Jorge Gonzalez, of Phoenix, said he protests against Arpaio because he feels the Hispanic community is being persecuted.

    Gonzalez said the summer heat won't stop him from protesting against the sheriff.

    "Wherever he is, I will be," Gonzalez said.

    Many of the protesters said they were not representing a particular group, but convened as individual citizens.

    The crowd on Saturday was significantly smaller than the hundreds who demonstrated at Thursday's Board of Supervisors meeting, , at which the Maricopa Citizens for Safety and Accountability rallied for better monitoring of public money spent by the sheriff's office.

    On Saturday, the sheriff entertained at least 100 supporters who showed up to his book signing.

    He acknowledged the protesters outside, noting they follow him "everywhere" he goes.

    "I hope they're gonna buy a book," he said. "Think they'll have enough money to buy it?"

    Some protesters made their way into the bookstore, often interrupting Arpaio's speech.

    One protester got in front of the sheriff but was escorted out shortly after. Angry supporters yelled at him to leave.

    Arpaio reminded the audience of the protesters' freedom of speech, but his supporters were visibly agitated by the interruptions.

    Nancy Bechtold, of Scottsdale, said she has been a supporter for 10 years. She said she thinks Arpaio is the only elected official who has a backbone when it comes to law enforcement.

    "They show themselves to be what they are: ignorant," she said.

    Jim Bagg, a Phoenix resident and Arpaio supporter, said the demonstrators "irritate" him because he thinks they should be pressing state representatives who have more power to solve immigration issues.

    "Joe is only doing his job," Bagg said.

    No human being is illegal" and, "Arrest real criminals."
    THAT IS SO LAME AND IGNORANT. CANT THESE PEOPLE COME UP WITH SOMETHING INTELLIGENT TO SAY FOR A CHANGE?

    YES- "human beings" can be illegal in a nation that has laws. It depends on whether or not a country will permit them the right to work, live or visit that country. It makes their presense "ILLEGAL" if they dont have the permission to be in that country.

    AND... Illegal aliens ARE criminals. They broke the laws of the country to be there and that makes them illegal. That makes them "real criminals".

    PLEASE THINK OF SOMETHING NEW TO PUT ON YOUR SIGNS.



    RIP Butterbean! We miss you and hope you are well in heaven.-- Your ALIPAC friends
