Demand the Resignation of Joe Arpaio for Ignoring Hundreds of Child Sex-Crimes

Monday, December 12th, 2011

From the petition letter:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has failed to protect the public and carry out his duties as an elected official in a Constitutional manner. The latest disclosure that MCSO failed to investigate hundreds of sex-crime cases involving children is just one in a long list of atrocities that have taken place under Arpaio’s 20 years in power.

Too many people have died in Arpaio’s jails, too many citizens’ Constitutional rights have been trampled, too many people have been forced to live in fear of retaliation for daring to challenge the Sheriff’s policies. Now is the time to end his reign of terror, abuse and willful disregard for the Arizona and United States Constitution.
