With all the crimes being committed by illegal aliens against the Hispanic and all other cultures in our state and communities, it sickens me that Mr. Garcia believes that the Oath of Office which all elected officials (Liberal and Conservative) have sworn to to uphold which specifically includes the words "Protect and Defend The U.S. Constitution" and "Up Hold The Laws" has no meaning and should be treated in the same manner as someone who believes that "Art" includes relieving themselves on a picture of Jesus.
I believe in the First Amendment giving Mr. Garcia the right to produce his play but I wonder how his "patrons" would react if a non-Hispanic culture produced the same play, replacing the main character of Sheriff Joe Arpaio with Ceasar Chavez who was the first and original Minuteman turning illegal aliens over to the Boarder Patrol to protect the legal farm workers members of his then fledgling Union?
I wonder what the reaction would be from people like Mr. Garcia if law enforcement chose to ignore calls based on race, would they still find that funny and applaud?

ABOUT THE SHOW Sheriff Joe has a heart attack and dies. Turns out his personal physician is the same guy who was "treating" Michael Jackson before the pop star's early demise. Satan offers to cut Joe a deal - his life in exchange for stopping the Hernandez family from making their annual trek by foot from Sonora to Phoenix to catch the light rail to Bethlehem (it also stops in Vegas now). Comedy ensues. Show intended for general audiences.

The Saga of Sheriff Joe - new play debuts Friday
Sheriff Joe Arpaio constantly makes the headlines - and now he's the star of a new play debuting on Dec. 4. The Saga of Sheriff Joe, written and directed by James E. Garcia, runs Dec. 4 through 13 at the Third Street Theatre in Phoenix.
The production is put on by the New Carpa Theater, a group that focuses on multicultural and Latino theater works.
Maricopa County's notorious sheriff has piled up an interesting list of acts that helped make him notorious since he took office in 1993.
These include: * Immigration sweeps - and arrests - in targeted communities where illegal aliens are suspected of living * Creating a tent city, bordered in barbed wire, in Maricopa County Jail * Swathing inmates in pink - pink socks, pink towels, pink prison garb and pink boxer shorts * Feeding convicts bologna sandwiches, cutting off coffee, smoking, and any cable except for the Disney and weather channels.
Anyone who thinks his tactics are too harsh will especially enjoy the play since Sheriff Joe ends up dropping dead from a heart attack.
"Turns out his personal physician is the same guy who was 'treating' Michael Jackson before his early demise," the New Carpa Theater synopsis explains.
"Satan offers to cut Joe a deal - his life in exchange for stopping the Hernandez family from making their annual trek by foot from Sonora to Phoenix to catch the light rail to Bethlehem (it also stops in Vegas now). Comedy ensues. Show intended for general audiences."
Anyone who is a fan of Sheriff Joe can maybe throw tomatoes or something.
