AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio to Militia: We Will Shoot You. By Accident.


“Tough-talking Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning civilians who embark on armed patrols in remote desert terrain that they could end up with ’30 rounds fired into’ them by one of his deputies,” the AP reports. “His unapologetically terse comments came Tuesday after a member of an Arizona Minuteman border-watch movement was arrested over the weekend for pointing a rifle at a Maricopa County sheriff’s deputy he apparently mistook for a drug smuggler. ‘If they continue this there could be some dead militia out there.'” Arpaio’s threat against Americans trying to defend the border through force of arms comes hot on the heels of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid—complete with armed local police and Customs and Border Patrol and Homeland Security Investigation agents—on 16 Danny’s Family Carwash locations. Go figure.
