I began this blog in May 2009 following the death of Marcia Powell at Perryville State Prison in Goodyear, Arizona. It is not intended to prescribe the path that leads to freedom from the prison industrial complex.

Rather, these are just my observations in arguably the most racist, fascist, militaristic state in the nation at a critical time in history for a number of intersecting liberation movements. From Indigenous resistance to genocidal practices, to the fight over laws like SB1070 and the ban on Ethnic Studies, Arizona is at the center of many battles for human rights, and thus the struggle for prison abolition as well - for none are free until all are. I retired the blog in APRIL 2013.

(better yet, let's see him indicted in office...)

4th Avenue Jail, PHOENIX 
chalk the police day, 2011
In case the DOJ doesn't come through with any of their indictments, please support this petition for Joe Arpaio to resign as Maricopa County Sheriff - just keep in mind that if he doesn't leave after getting it
(copies go to him and the County Board of Supervisors), he'll still have insane power as well as all of our names...

I signed it anyway. Go for it if you dare.

"Demand the resignation of Joe Arpaio"

"As Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio has failed to protect the public and carry out his duties as an elected official in a Constitutional manner. The latest disclosure that MCSO failed to investigate hundreds of sex-crime cases involving children is just one in a long list of atrocities that have taken place during Arpaio's 20 years in power.

Too many people have died in Arpaio's jails, too many citizens' Constitutional rights have been trampled, too many people have been forced to live in fear of retaliation for daring to challenge the Sheriff's policies. Now is the time to end this reign of terror, abuse and willful disregard for the Arizona and United States Constitution.

It's time for Sheriff Joe Arpaio to resign."
