So much for free speech… Leftist students shut down Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s speech at Arizona State University this week.
Arpaio was sitting in on a First Amendment Forum sponsored by the School of Journalism.
Oh, the irony.

During the forum, which was hosted by the university’s journalism school, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was asked whether his office engages in racial profiling, according to the Associated Press.
Arpaio said his agency is an “equal opportunity law enforcement agency” that will arrest anyone who violates the law.
Later, when trying to answer a question about his policies on illegal immigration, a group of hecklers stood up and began singing the song.
Their song clearly annoyed Arpaio, who called the spectacle “ridiculous.”
“This isn’t the way journalists should operate,” he said to the host. “Are they all students up there? Why were they allowed here if they’re not students?” He later walked off the set.
The local reporters also pounded Arpaio during the interview before it was called off.
