Why does Sheriff Arpaio care more about sexual abuse against dogs instead of human children?

MESA, AZ – Authorities arrested a married couple and their friend Monday night for conspiring to commit bestiality with a male Golden Shepherd mix.

Pinal County resident Shane Walker, 38, and his wife, 33-year-old Sarah Dae Walker were arrested along with their friend, 29-year-old Robert A. Aucker of Gilbert, according to Sgt. Brandon Jones with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Arpaio said he sent Jim Buckmaster, CEO of Craiglist.org, a letter asking him to consider better monitoring the website to prevent this kind of solicitation.

Buckmaster never responded, Arpaio said.

Why is it that Sheriff Arpaio gets personally involved when a dog may experience sexual abuse (but thanks to the MCSO intervention the dog was saved), yet when it comes to human children, some as young as 3 years old that have been sexually abused, Sheriff Arpaio ignored them?

It turns out that Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been so busy harassing undocumented workers that he’s neglected to go after sexual predators, the type that assault little girls as young as three years-old – and he calls himself  “America’s Toughest Sheriff.”

The information came to light in an Associated Press report, that highlights the cases of two 13 year-old girls who were assaulted in their own homes.

Both cases were among more than 400 sex-crimes reported to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office during a three-year period ending in 2007 — including dozens of alleged child molestations — that were inadequately investigated and in some instances were not worked at all, according to current and former police officers familiar with the cases.
