  • I won't paint the entire law enforcement population of the U.S. with such a broad brush, nor assume Arizona if full of terrible cops.


    I believe police in general are wonderful people who risk their lives daily to protect the citizens and legal residents of this country.

  • If you read the bill, they continuously refer to US FEDERAL LAWS...  So, liberals WAKE UP!!  Al this is doing is maing the feds get serious about enforcement and allowing STATE OFFICIALS to do what the FEDS will not...

  • grly reasonable suspicion, is abused now as it is by very many officers in a lot of states, often having cases thrown out because they lack it. They often make up excuses for probable cause, this is an everyday occurrence, this is why a lot of cases get thrown out of court. So I can only imagine what will happen in Arizona!

    older, I find it funny that you can allow yourself play fortune teller NOW, after,you, older~ criticized conservatives for using current/past government trends and accusing conservatives of predicting the future of Health Care...   Does that make you a hypocrite?

  • Stop crying..and do one of two things..deal with it because Arizona wants to protect its citizens living in the state..(the federal government is REQUIRED PER OUR CONSTITUTION TO PROTECT OUR BORDERS..THEY AREN'T DOING IT..SO IF YOU WANT TO TAK CONSTITUTION ..THERE YA HAVE IT!) OR you take your ass there and protect the people ..otherwise get the hell over it and stop screaming racism..some of you are nothing but race baiters..always looking for a chance to cry racism.

  • grly, I do not lie, I read the bill and I beleive it to be unconstitutional and so very many others who know the law. Police officers will try to enforce this law based solely on the way they look and they have a certain profile to match, it happens with black people all the time, and the same will happen with this bill, no matter how it is worded. I am good friends with a few police officers, I get this info from them. And grly an opinion on a subject is not a lie!
