Posted on 06/20/2013 8:25:43 AM PDT by LonelyCon

Chris Simcox, who founded a border-watch group known as the Minutemen to look for illegal immigrants coming into Arizona from Mexico, has been arrested in Phoenix on suspicion of having sexual contact with three girls under the age of 10, police said.

Mr. Simcox, 52, was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Maricopa County Jail on suspicion of two counts of molestation of a child, two counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of attempted molestation of a child, according to reports.

Police said Mr. Simcox has denied the allegations.

Smear campaign? Likely.

Just the accusation is enough to destroy a good person;a Democrat will just get re-elected if convicted.

A 52 year old is more likely to touch a teenager .. 15, 16 and up before a 10 year old

Bogus charges that I hope Arpaio jumps in on.

a federal judge sentenced him to two years of probation for carrying a firearm on national forest property

That's weird.

This is where a jury of ones peers and good evidence are required. If innocent of a setup, let him go. If assuredly guilty, I’ll flip the switch.

Kind of interesting that there is a group accusing Joe Arpio of ignoring sex abuse charges.

If Simcox is deemed innocent that group will have some crossover PR to smear Arpio with.

Eeww. I am around that age and I find anything under about 30 to be non-desirable. Nothing more attractive than a well maintained (no fake stuff) and confident 35+ year old WOMAN dressed to the nines in a conservative manner.

These little teenagers you see running around half naked have grated my last nerve.

Ever Watch “Blakes 7”? The first episode they use that to eliminate the leader of a resistance movement who is opposing a 1984 style government...

That's weird.

Yes, considering the laws of the Forest comply to the laws of the state. In that, if the state allows carry in open areas, then the National Forest allows it. I've open carried several times in the Forests around NM and have had no problems with either the County Mounties who patrol under reciprocal agreements for the Forest Service, or the Forest Service LEOs and Rangers themselves.

AZ has similar laws to NM regarding open carry.

just finished watching Prison break , which is about a brother who is set up for a murder and his brother goes to prison to get him out of death row etc.

They find out that there is a group which is setting people up, running the Govt, got the likes of the DOJ in their pocket, they spy on people etc etc etc.

Reminds me of this Chicago thug tyrannical regime

10,000% disbelieve. This is a total lie.

TOTALLY consistent with the M.O. of this criminal government.

Likely that he was BEGGED for babysitting, and then they simly began screaming the instant they were alone with him.

We are seeing the emergence of a real American Dissident Class.

It is probably a set-up, but not a political one.

The fact that he is in a divorce action with wife may tell the story.

It would not be the first time such trumped up charges were used in a heated divorce.

That's why I don't jump on people accused of it until they are proven guilty beyond a doubt. My high school buddy was charged with child abuse, physical, not sexual, by his then girlfriend because she wanted to get back at him. Her father fessed up and told the truth and charges were dropped before it got legs, thank God. The thing that bugs me about child abuse cases is even if you are deemed innocent after dropped charges or in a court of law, the stigma still follows you. He went through all sorts of Hell, especially his mother who was on kidney dialysis at the time because he spent a night in county lockup.

“...Where’s your outrage and concern for the victims?...”

Gotta prove there ARE “victims” first - and not some made up politically-inspired smear job to take out one of our people

Innocent until proven guilty by a jury of your peers, in a court of law, under due process.

If he IS guilty, then yeah, no support at all and enjoy jail. NOBODY should mess with kids.

But prove it first.

Simcox was prosecuted for possessing a firearm while on lands of the Organ Pipe National Monument. National monuments have more restrictive regulations and state laws concerning firearms do not apply as they do on national forest lands.
