    Police chiefs concerned about Arizona immigration law

    Police chiefs from about a dozen cities are scheduled to meet with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday to talk about concerns they have with Arizona's new immigration law. The group includes police chiefs from Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona; Los Angeles, California; and Houston, Texas.
    The chiefs will tell Holder that they worry the new law will "drive a wedge" between the community and police, and damage the trust that officers have worked to build "over many years," according to a statement by the group.
    Arizona's law allows officers to check the residency status of anyone who is being investigated for a crime or possible legal infraction -- if there is reasonable suspicion the person is an illegal resident.

    Police chief's are often politicians, completely out of touch with regular people, victims, and the rank and file of their department.

    This or just lapdogs for the politicians they serve
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    I've met a decent Chief here and there. Was raised by one.

    That said, most of them are politicians, yes.

    If the feds didn't let them across the border, then the police wouldn't need to drive any wedges, would they?

    They need about 10,000 armed troops permanently stationed on the border - I've heard most of the 1200 National Guard troops Obama is sending won't be armed, and their stay is just a few weeks - They'll be more in the way than helping, seems to me, since they won't have time to train for policing the border, and will be in need of protection.

    This is just Bizarre.

    Good grief. Either enforce the law or don't. Considering that there were only a handful of Arizona officials present perhaps the other officials should enforce laws in their own jurisdictions. JMHO.
