So why does a judge release a convicted illegal felon with ties to Mex Mafia out on 10k bond while we spend tons of money to determine if he should be deported.  Where does an illegal felon get 10$k for the bond.  As a result, he shot and killed a US citizen over a pack of cigarettes at a convenience store.  There are no consequences anymore thanks to lenient judges and Obama & Holders immigration policy… One tick away from an open and very dangerous border. And Obama has depleted the judiciary to hear deportation cases so the quagmire of deportation takes even longer allowing illegals of all stripes to stay in the U.S.  What a supreme lack of security this Admn. has provided for the U.S.

Why was this corrupt racist even invited to testify. Why don’t they ask him about his undocumented boyfriend who he turned in after he broke up with him.
  Buddha Boy the people who depleted the judiciary were the GOP in Congress who continue to delay his appointments. Stop watching Fox News it rots your brain

And let us not forget that while a headmaster at a residential school for troubled youths Babeu had a sexual relationship with one of his SEVENTEEN year old students. At the very best he is a CREEP!

It takes just a single senator to block a vote on a nominee. In the case of Arizona’s judges, it was Kyl and McCain, and then McCain and Flake who finally relented and allowed a vote after more than three years.

Buddha boy another one of your nonsensical statements. Babeu had an unethical relationship with a minor and then had a relationship with someone who by his own statements he doesn’t think should be in this country. Babeu was asked because of his appeal to racists goobers like the ones who support McSally

Sorry, we missed your input...

TucsonSentinel.com is an Arizona nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible.

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.


Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
