What retards. With those pipes on their hands, how did they drink, or expect to use the restroom, or even scratch an itch?

I’m disappointed to see that Isabel Garcia and Margo Cowan weren’t among the arrested.  After all, they were responsible (again) for inciting a riot. 

Some media outlet needs to do an investigation into all the time Isabel Garcia spends on Derechos Humanos while she is being paid by Pima County to be a Public Defender.

I’ll agree with everything in this post…both that Garcia should have been among those arrested, and that it is very possible she’s performing her reconquista idiocy on County time.
