The Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, is notorious for the hard-line (read: racist) he takes against the state's Latino community. He insists Mexicans come over in their droves, not to operate the entire country's service sector, but to give birth to future drug dealers and rapists. He comes down hard on meth users. He makes inmates in his prison wear pink jumpsuits while they work in chain gangs under the blistering desert sun. He is every conservative extreme manifested in one, bitter, blinkered old man.
But then again, he is not a horse fucker.
During an undercover sting operation, Sheriff Arpaio's men arrested Michael Crawford, 68, who had travelled to Phoenix under the pretence that he could stick his dick in a horse at a ranch in Tolleson, AZ. Good news! There's a video of the sting in action, in which Crawford selects a black steed. Well, you know what they say.
According to USA Today, "Crawford posted an ad on a popular website soliciting a willing horse owner, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators in the Animal Crimes Investigations Unit opened the case in October and corresponded with Crawford via e-mail and phone-call conversations."
In a sense, this was a veritable To Catch A Predator sting. But instead of a gruff-voice female posing as a teenage boy, this featured AZ police posing as ranch owners willing to prostitute a horse to an elderly Pennsylvania man. And instead of Chris Hansen asking the perp to take a seat, the perp was bundled off to Maricopa County prison, where the humiliation of a pink jumpsuit will be further compounded by his reputation as a habitual horse fucker.
If, like me, a part of you thinks this was a clear case of entrapment, then enjoy the ensuing moral quandary of feeling sympathy for a horse fucker.
