Phoenix New Times has spent more than a decade reporting on the serious abuse of power by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio since he was first elected in 1992. Shamelessly promoting himself as the "toughest sheriff in America", Arpaio was once Arizona's most popular politician. But his popularity is plummeting as the public learns details of horrendous jail conditions, reckless police operations and Gestapo-like activities against political rivals.
