Makes sense, I’m afraid. You can’t have two groups patrolling the border without risking one of them shooting the other.

I wonder if it would be possible if these militia guys volunteered to be deputized by Arpaio, so they could work together, instead? That’s how it was handled in the old days when there was a serious threat to be confronted.

It’s their thing and they don’t like outsiders trying to muscle in.

Obviously, the MCSO and the Minutemen need some better coordination to avoid incidents in the future. It could be as simple as the two agreeing on one-day challenges and passwords.

That is, when one group meets another they yell out their challenge word, and the other group has to yell their password if they have one. If they don’t, all bets are off.

And the words are issued out once a day to both groups, so after a 24 hour period they are invalid, and a new challenge and password are in effect.

I would hope Sheriff Joe would try to find a way to work with the militia.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

Law enforcement officers should want to work with concerned citizens. If they don't it makes you wonder if some of them don't want any interference with criminal operations they are aware of but ignoring.

The continuing trend of law enforcement organizations to try to separate themselves from "civilians" is a bad idea, since without the support and cooperation of the "civilians" their job is much more difficult - particularly when the voters cut their budgets.

Tough-talking Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning civilians...

Last time I checked, YOU are a civilian, Joe.

I guess Sheriff Joe believes that The King's Men are ascendant...

The Arizona Minutemen wouldn't even be out there if we didn't have an illegal-alien-loving illegal alien for President who won't allow ANYONE with a badge to actually DO their damn jobs!

It's nice to know there are Civilian militias watching our border. The paid professionals are being paid to NOT do anything, hence the NEED for citizen militias!

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the real deal. He is a true patriot who is standing up to Obama on border enforcement. He has also made more progress than anyone on addressing Obama’s fraudulent occupation of the white house. Perhaps this is the news media’s way of broadcasting a vulnerability. The liberals want this man dead.

Uh Joe:
Free Country and your guy was the one acting suspicious.

Both the Deputy and the man were in the right and it might behoove you to work with them rather than threaten.

Your dude wasn’t getting off the 1st shot and was at a disadvantage with a light illuminating him. He also may have been outnumbered.

Slap the guy’s wrist, tell him off and give him a wink.

Just how I see it.

You are a good man and so are your men but, you are outnumbered by border brothers and you could enlist the help of those willing to work within your AO and RoE.

When it comes to Sheriff Joe and his posse, I’m done. They got it covered.

I’ll be blunt about it. Based on my appearance and usual clothing, I wouldn’t trust some of these militia types not to shoot me.

From the article: “U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Andy Adame also expressed concern for the safety of both the militia members and Border Patrol agents.”

They have grave concern for the drug runners, too. They’re concerned they’re going to get caught by militia that the local cops and Border Patrol can’t do.

From the article: "According to court records, the deputy and his partner stopped their vehicle, then flashed their headlights and honked their horn, a common practice used by law enforcement to trick drug smugglers into thinking the car is there to transfer their narcotics load and lure them out of hiding."

So the law enforcement guys admit that they intentionally gave the appearance of NOT being law enforcement. And then they arrested a man for believing that they weren't law enforcement, which had been their exact intention.

Am I missing something here? Does the government really think they can get a conviction in this case for anything?
