Sheriff Joe sending armed posse into black churches

June 22, 2015

1654381_GPHOENIX — A sheriff on trial, accused of harassing some members of a minority community, will send armed volunteer posse members into 60 black churches Sunday in response to the racially motivated attack in South Carolina earlier this week.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who already is under federal supervision because of a ruling two years ago that his office racially profiled Hispanics in its traffic and immigration patrols, is scheduled to go to trial in August in a separate lawsuit alleging additional discrimination against Latinos.

He said the Rev. Jarrett Maupin, who describes himself as a Progressive Baptist preacher and civil-rights campaigner on his Facebook page, asked him to provide the protection because he was worried about problems with white supremacists in the area.

    Poorly worded headline and description. You have to read carefully to see that the Sheriff Joe is sending posse volunteers to guard the black churches at the request of the ministers. Article reads as if the Sheriff is sending in a posse to discriminate against the black churches. The information regarding lawsuits against him for discriminating against Latinos is irrelevant to this topic.

      You are right in your statements! Headlines are MOST deceiving. His plan is to PROTECT the black church members. Thanks Sheriff.

      The article is obviously written by a Leftist, Lame-stream journalist.
