TUCSON SHERIFF WON'T ENFORCE NEW LAW

Rate this Entry

Love this guy. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik called SB1070 "stupid" and told journalists today that the new law is designed to deflect attention from fiscal mismanagement by the legislature. From Huffington Post:

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who I am assuming is something of
a master of the "complex and demanding craft of policing" seeing as how
he's been a policeman for over five decades, begs to differ. Per Amanda Terkel, Dupnik called the law "racist" and "disgusting" and "stupid"
and, in his "nuanced judgment" could not be enforced without mandatory
racial profiling. Dupnik's reckoning of the legal issue is that he's
just as likely to be sued for racial profiling as he is for not doing
enough racial profiling, so he's standing pat, and will not enforce the
new law.

    Well, that's basically what he's saying."

    Love this guy."

    So you're outraged by one sheriff you think is taking the law into his own hands but you pat this one on the back for explicitly saying he'll do that. Shouldn't an attorney of all people advocate going through a legal process to challenge a law he doesn't like?
