"I enjoyed this Documentary on Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I believe in his way of law enforcement, maybe we should have more sheriffs/law enforcers like him. People have a choice in life and if they break the law they should be held accountable for their actions. Keep up the good work Sheriff.

"This is one great story whether you watch it on PBS, read the book or see the DVD.
Personally I believe America should have more Lawmen like Joe Arpaio.

"This film begins to tell the real story of Joe Arpaio from the context of a lawman who in his own words "went from a lawman to a celebrity." In this film you will watch someone beaten to death by Arpaio's officers. In this film you will see Arpaio's guards say under oath that while other guards were strangling a detainee (not formally charged, not having had a trial, not even had a preliminary hearing, not proven guilty of anything) that Scott Norberg was turning blue from strangulation, they were told in response "Who gives a F***." You will see convincing evidence of a jail guard cover up and Arpaio says his "guards did nothing wrong."
This is the type of lawman Joe Arpaio is. This is what he does and this is what has cost Maricopa County taxpayers $50M in lawsuit losses during Arpaio's tenure in office.
If you want to see how absolute power corrupts absolutely, then this is the film for you. Kudos to the director Max Jourdan for doing such a good job in this film on showing Arpaio's true colors."
