County Attorney: Sheriff's Saturation Patrols Are Legal

This news definitely doesn't make Mayor Phil "I wannabe governor" Gordon very happy. the Associated Press reports (and the Arizona Republic probably won't mention):

Maricopa County's top prosecutor said Tuesday that Sheriff Joe Arpaio's recent high-profile crackdowns around the Valley are legal if his officers follow rules that prohibit racial profiling and unwarranted traffic stops.

That's right Phil, despite your political posturing, Sheriff Joe is in the right. Now, about the racial profiling you participated in a number of years ago....
