Blog Threatens Arizona Sheriff, Praises Death of Deputy

PHOENIX – Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he’s sending deputies to Google’s headquarters in the San Francisco Bay area to serve a search warrant.

Arpaio says he wants to identify the author or authors of an anti-cop blog threatens him and praises the recent death of a deputy — and calls his killer a martyr.

The web site, TargetingCops.Blogspot.com has an image of Deputy William Coleman with the words “Officer Down, LOL” and an image of his suspected killer, Drew Ryan Maras.

Maras is also linked to the murders of a New Hampshire couple near Sedona.

The site has an image of Arpaio with “Wanted, Dead or Alive” with “Alive” crossed out. It also has “You’re next, Joe. Watch your back, b****.”

Blog Threatens Arizona Sheriff, Praises Death of Deputy

A BLOG? A Google hosted, FREE Blog? And they have the GALL to threaten Sheriff Joe Arpaio and to denigrate dead and injured officers?

I am all for freedom of speech, and I also believe that blogs can be a legitimate news source and that some bloggers are true journalists.

Then you find a piece of CRAP blog like Targeting Cops and you know immediately that not ALL blogs are credible and some have NO idea of what integrity or human decency is.

I don’t begrudge this cretin his right to free speech, I don’t begrudge him his right to revel in the death of Police Officers, as sick as I believe that to be, it is, after all, a right that he is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution. I don’t LIKE what this MORON says, not in any way, but he DOES have a right to say it, an unfettered right to express his vile hatred of all Law Enforcement Officers.

What he does NOT have though is a right to threaten the life of an officer of the law, or anyone else for that matter, and that threat, “You’re next, Joe. Watch your back, bitch.” may well be his undoing and the action that gets a HATE BLOG removed from the ‘net.

Some may call this a *veiled reference* in regards to a threat against the life of Sheriff Arpaio, but even a veiled threat against your life is one that you take seriously, and when that threat is made against a person such as Sheriff Arpaio, well, this is where ‘the long arm of the law’ comes into play!

The Sheriff respects First Amendment rights protecting free speech. “But the line is crossed when a person threatens an act of violence against another. We believe the author of this website definitely crossed that line.”

“We don’t know really who the suspect is, that’s why we need the information from Google and I hope they will cooperate as I said on other threats on me we just can’t seem to get the information, but maybe we’ll be successful,” Arpaio adds.

I am NOT a lawyer, I don’t play one on TV and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but I can’t help but believe that Google and Company would be willing to cooperate with a legal search warrant and a reasonable request for information from a law enforcement agency concerning threats of bodily harm and/or the death of Sheriff Arpaio being next.

Posting these words “You’re next, Joe. Watch your back, bitch.” is a REAL threat and presents a clear and present danger to Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

As FOX 10 first reported, it appears a Portland man named Damos Abadon is behind the blog. The Sheriff’s office says that could be an alias.

MCSO investigators say they haven’t received any help from Google in establishing the IP address from which that threat originated.

I have to say, in the past I have posted stories that brought the threat of legal challenges and investigations into my sources, and I have emphatically and categorically denied access to those sources and names, and I will continue to do so, but THIS blog doesn’t make death threats against anyone. THAT is the *deal breaker*. Political opinion is one thing, even scathing opinion, but threats of death are another matter entirely.

There are certain lines that just don’t get crossed. This Damos Abadon, if that is his real name, is a despicable cretin and not worth the time of day, but he has crossed that line.

Give em hell Sheriff Arpaio! Smoke this bastard out and take him down.

    If it was targeted toward a muzzie it would have been removed by now….just sayin’

  2. I’d like to just plain stomp the crap out of the people that wrote that. Just saying…

    Free speech, and liberty in general stops where it infringes upon the rights of others.

    • TexasFred says:

      Technically, until the time this asshole threatened Arpaio, they were within their rights, I hate it too, but sometimes you have a double edged sword…

  3. Cary says:

    The funny thing is, if the cretin were threatened for threatening the Sheriff, he would be running TO the law for protection, wanna bet?

    Sometimes, the scumbags have really good armor in the form of the first amendment. Sometimes, the idiots cross the line. This one crosses the biggest line possible.

  4. Miss Beth is spot on, they shut down blogs that lean right or speak against muzzies all the time.

    I’m going to start saving up a contribution to buy Patrick a nice pair of steel toed crap stompers and offer to ride shot gun. I don’t think the 1st amendment includes threatening the lives of others as protected speech. Patrick is right is right and of course I agree with Fred too.

  5. Bob Mack says:

    I don’t believe death threats are protected speech under the 1st Amendment either, although lots of left-wing scum got away with uttering ’em when it came to George W. Bush. Thankfully, the people that make public threats are rarely the ones for whom you have to watch out. Still, this ‘Damos’ idiot needs to have his toys taken away.

    Gee, wish I would of met this guy in Yosemite Park when I was sent in with others to break up demonstrators who got out of hand and started tearing up things,,,,instead of just playing “hackey sack”.
    Riot batons and “sap gloves” could be used in so, so many ways.
    But alas,,,as an old retired sheepdog,, my rotator cuffs are toast now,, someone else will find this guy, and as a marked target now,,,,his time is short.
    Go get him Joe. I’ll toast the confrontation.

  8. MissBeth says:

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! I flagged it as hate speech. Now, Joe–go get the bastard!

  9. I love it when common sense and decency win the day! If they figure out who the jerk wod is… those Redwings will be headed Patrick’s way! Planning the well armed road trip even now. LOL!!!!

    • Y’all better be a well fed plump girl Ham, it’s a Browning BPS 10 Gauge! LOL!

      Frieghtshaker Freedom Express? Have to find a new CB handle now I suppose!

      Look, most people here know quite well that I am a very big “L” ibertarian, a philosophical one. Got a problem with that well, look up what Ronald Magnumus had to say about it.

      I’m just glad that the putrid hate website got it’s ass cleaned…

      HAM better know the ins and outs of a 13 speed…

      *ROARS LAUGHING!*

    What was that freak’s name again, Fred? Dumbass Abandoned? Perhaps I should start a blog titled “Targeting Crooks” on blogger? Seriously though, I’m glad Google got rid of that blog. Left wing kooks like that 0bama-bot tend to find themselves as a new lust interest boi toy for all the Bubbas in a maximum secrity animal house. Tiny and Momo are waiting for their steaks!

  12. TexasFred says:

    Well, well, well, the BALLS of these *Targeting Cops* people…

    I had a person register as *Officer Down* then try to comment HERE telling me that the disgusting piece of shit site that threatened Joe Arpaio was taken down voluntarily by it’s owner and was being reevaluated and will be back soon.

    I don’t know for certain if it’s the OWNER of Targeting Cops or one of his supporters but that is their story, and the *Officer Down* clown IS in Portland, OR. That’s where MCSO said they were.
