Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio watches as actor Steven Seagal addresses the media about a simulated school shooting in Fountain HillsBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - A federal judge admonished Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and a chief deputy on Monday for critical remarks directed at a sweeping court ruling that found their deputies racially profiled Latino drivers. The judge warned Arpaio, a divisive figure in the national immigration debate, and Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan that he would not tolerate the type of behavior recorded in an October briefing that saw the top aide call the court order ludicrous and absurd. "I intend to have my order followed," said U.S. District Judge Murray Snow, who required Arpaio and Sheridan to attend the court hearing. Snow ordered Arpaio last year to stop using race as a factor when making law enforcement decisions, in response to a 2007 lawsuit that tested whether police could target unauthorized immigrants without also profiling U.S. citizens and legal residents of Hispanic origin.

NYC jail guard charged in death of inmate who ate disinfectant

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 05:28
A former senior guard at New York City's main jail complex was arrested on Monday on a federal charge that he deprived a mentally ill inmate of medical aid after he swallowed a corrosive disinfectant. Terrence Pendergrass, 49, was a captain on duty at Rikers Island last August when an inmate in the mental health assessment unit swallowed a so-called "soap ball," according to a criminal complaint. Unaware that rules require the soap ball to be diluted in water, an inexperienced guard gave it to the inmate, Jason Echevarria, so he could clean up sewage flooding his cell, the complaint said. Instead, Echevarria swallowed the ball, which contained highly caustic ammonium chloride, it said.
