Teen Arrested In Plot To Castrate Arpaio


Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio has grown accustomed to criticism, vitriol, and even threats during his career as one of the nation’s most recognizable lawmen. One of the latest attacks, however, was not only utterly bizarre, but serious enough to land one Canadian teen in jail.

Arpaio, one of the guests slated to speak at next month’s Western Conservative Conference, has received multiple threats from the unidentified individual in the past. In fact, just prior to the latest incident, he was confined to a psychiatric hospital in Alberta.

According to reports, the teen sent an email to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in which he said he “will never stop until [he is] put away for good.”

The correspondence continued with a very direct physical threat.

“I hate you so much that I will travel to Arizona and chop off your b***s off [sic] with a meat cleaver and turn you into a woman,” he reportedly wrote.

The teen’s threatening behavior began about six months ago, reports indicate; and he alluded to murdering Arpaio and his family at least three times prior to the latest incident.

Authorities in Canada took the teen into custody this week for the fourth time on charges related to threatening the man often referred to as “America’s Toughest Sheriff.”

As for Arpaio, he previously addressed the issue, calling the teen “mentally unbalanced” and calling on law enforcement north of the border to intervene for the public’s sake.

“While laws in Canada may be different,” he said, “it is still imperative that police recognize the danger someone like this young man poses against not just me, but people in general.”

Arpaio will be a speaker and the subject of a roast during the upcoming Western Conservative Conference, to be held Feb. 21 and 22 at the Phoenix Convention Center. For ticket information and other details, visit westernconservative.org.

    These Canadian kid must be a real loser or is he a Canadian Mexican to want to hurt one of the best lawman America has to offer.They should take this kid and make him a gelding and if he did get close to Joe a few good rounds would straighten him out so the undertaker would get some business.
