ASU Journalism Students Start Practicing Early

Today they're in the media; tomorrow they'll be writing for it:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was asked by a panel of journalists Monday night to explain his relationship with the media, his various law enforcement policies and whether his office conducts racial profiling.

Arpaio told the panel that his office is an "equal opportunity law enforcement agency" that will arrest anyone who violates the law.

Later in the interview at ASU's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, protesters began singing a version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and chanting as Arpaio was asked about a federal investigation and his policies on illegal immigration.

Personally, I think Arpaio should have responded to these dunces with a drawling, "What we have heah is a fail-yah to communicate," but I doubt the protestors would have been bright enough to pick up on the reference.

I've always thought of him as a competent Buford T. Justice.
So maybe
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law.

Or just a blanket, "Stupid sumbitches" as he stalked off.
