Sheriff of Nottingham hasn't read his own book, says he doesn't understand the fourth amendment

You'd think if your name was on a book you'd at least want to have read it, right?

I guess not if you're the Sheriff of Nottingham.

That's right, in a deposition today, Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he hasn't read and is unfamiliar with what is in a book that he co-authored (in other words he had a ghostwriter.)

He also said he is largely unfamiliar with the fourth amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In case you'd forgotten that is the one that prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. Maybe just a little relevant to his job description since he is the one making searches and seizures, wouldn't you think?

Joe Arpaio is just a punk with a badge.

Geez, I checked to see what your comment was and now I have to post because the word verification is priceless:


That's sheriff Joe, alright.
