Arpaio firing back at new documentary

A new documentary called "Under Arpaio" takes aim Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's illegal immigration, Tent City and pink underwear policies and now Arpaio is aiming back.

"You think I'm going to change for this "Mickey Mouse", whatever you want to call this thing? What, are you kidding? The more you go after it, the more I do it," Arpaio said.

The documentary alleges that murders, torture and assaults have happened in Arpaio's jails and have gone unpunished and unpublished.

Though he has not seen the documentary, Arpaio said that the purpose of the film is to get several of his critics names out there, such as Salvadore Reza, an immigrants rights activist.

"I'm not concerned with these guys," Arpaio said, adding that people both in and out of Maricopa County clearly agree with what he is doing, based on the power that his endorsement holds.
