“U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow set up Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for a knockout in his latest ruling on a racial-profiling lawsuit.  Snow’s ruling in the Melendres Vs. Arpaio case eviscerates the sheriff’s office for its record-shredding tactics, noting that deputies intentionally destroyed records that revealed their unethical enforcement operations. The ruling, made public today, comes a week after the U.S. Department of Justice revealed that a three-year investigation concluded Arpaio’s shop routinely violated the rights of Valley Hispanics.” – Phoenix New Times, Dec. 23, 2011.

“U.S. District G. Murray Snow ruled today that any Hispanic stopped by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s deputies since January 1, 2007 — or will be stopped in the future — can sue the Sheriff’s Office in a class-action lawsuit.The ruling in the Melendres racial-profiling case also enjoins the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office from stopping people based on a suspicion that they might be violating one aspect of the state’s human-smuggling law, or any other law.” – Phoenix New Times, Dec. 23, 2011.
