Still in the alliterative mode, we note that a maximum security prisoner named Samuel Matta has allegedly plotted kill Maricopa County County Sheriff, and birther conspiracy theorist, Joe Arpaio, with a high-powered rifle. Reports say that the attempt was in response to Arpaio being responsible for the deportation of members of Matta’s family, reports Fox Latino News.
Sorry folks, that was last year’s attempt to assassinate Joe Arpaio. This time it was a bomb. Brietbart News (WorldNetDaily and the birther blogs) report that a bomb was intercepted in the mail to Arpaio. Fox News describes it as a “suspicious package containing explosives.” The device was neutralized by a water canon. One source said the package appeared suspicious because it was leaking gunpowder.
Arpaio, who gets lots of death threats, responded:
It’s the nature of the business.
This site does not condone sending bombs to people, nor death threats for that matter.
It was later determined that the bomb was not wired to explode.
