Best lawman in America being investigated by the “left.”

I suppose along with instituting every policy they can, as quickly as they can, the left has gone off the deep end now. The Department of Justice, along with looney left senators and liberal activists have launched an investigation (read witch-hunt) as to whether Maricopa’s Sheriff’s office has violated illegal aliens rights.

Arizona’s famous Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the target of this highly suspect “investigation” that has been requested by Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), and Robert Scott (D-Va.), and activists groups such as National Day Laborer Organizer Network and ACORN launched petition drives and rallies in support of the probe.

This investigation will target Joe Arpaio and dozens of officers that were formally trained by Homeland Security’s, Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Agreements of Cooperation in Communities to Enhance Safety and Security (ACCESS), which partners federal and local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws. (The Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division is known popularly as ICE.)

Not only has Sheriff Joe Arpaio apprehended 2,300 illegal aliens on the streets of Maricopa County, but his ICE trained officers have conducted over 100,000 interviews of incarcerated inmates and have found through those interviews that 16,000 inmates are illegal aliens and once they have completed their sentences they will now be deported.

In just another move to ruin a good thing, Democratic congressional members have also asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to launch and investigation on the training procedures by ICE.

Where exactly will this madness end?
