Citizens Sue Sheriff Joe

U.S. citizens who were stopped in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "criminal suppression sweeps" have joined a suit charging racial profiling. Maicopa sheriff's deputy has stopped and detained them for fours during the sweeps, he only reason they they looked Mexican. The plaintiffs were born here and are American citizens. Still it's a long-shot that they'll make their case, since it is hard to discern the intent of the deputies. (See Arizona Republic article.)
