Surrounding the minor slip-up of bemoaning the abuses going on "on the streets of Maricopa", the NYT's editorialists create a laundry list of what they see as his "outrages." They conclude with a rather weak warning:
"Sheriff Arpaio is facing the voters for a sixth term this fall. He has long insisted that he answers to no one but the county’s residents, who keep re-electing him. If voters won’t put an end to his abuses, the courts and the Constitution will have the final word."
