Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MSCO) often has been in the news for his controversial immigration and law enforcement policies. As reported on ImmigrationProf blog, the MSCO under his leadership has been the subject of injunctions barring discrimination against Latina/os and requiring the appointment of a monitor. It goes without saying, the office is frequently criticized for its civil rights record.
Is it just me or is the MSCO's Mugshot of the Day feature on the official website over the top? Vistors to the page can vote on the Mugshot of the Day? What is the legitimate law enforcement objective here? Just saying.
