This is my shocked face. Absolutely no one could have seen this coming. But as it turns out, the former Arizona cop who was involved in the “execution”-style killing of Texas dad Daniel Shaver had previously been investigated for his use of force back in 2015.
There’s nothing worse than when someone takes you for an idiot. It’s probably 1,000 times more so when there is video evidence of something and they (in this case the criminal-justice system) still take the piss.
Now that bigotry and racism is house-sitting 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., it seems fitting that ex-Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio—who was so vile and xenophobic that the courts ordered him to stop targeting Latinos in Arizona, but he refused and was sent to prison until the xenophobe in chief pardoned him—may…

When will the troglodytes learn to keep their shitty comments offline? Will they all lose their jobs before this is over? Only time will tell. But, for now, one Arizona man is facing the music after making a vile Facebook post about driving his vehicle through people looking to protest President Donald Trump’s rally…
A Confederate monument in Arizona dedicated to the first and only president of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis, was recently tarred and feathered.
