So Sue Me, You Fascist Fuck!

Joe Arpaio is the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Az.
He alleges that the Phoenix New Times committed a felony by publishing his home address:
Last week, Phoenix New Times' founders Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested and jailed after the paper published a story about the grand jury and subpoenas they had received that demanded detailed internet records of any person who had visited the newspaper's website since 2004, as well as all notes and records from any reporter who had written about the sheriff in the preceding three years.

After Larkin and Lacey were arrested an outpouring of shock and anger accompanied widespread media coverage of the case. The response created a groundswell of support for New Times. The charges were dropped less than 24 hours later after Thomas admitted that his office had made "serious missteps" in the case.
Arapio has been treading on the thin edge of the fascism in his dusty, hot bailiwick for almost 20 years. Here, courtesy of the Phoenix New Times, is a site chronicling Arpaio's excesses.
By the way:

So fucking sue me, Joe, you fascist fucking pig./!
