According to the Superior Court website, the hearing is actually on Wednesday, November 4 at 1:30 p.m.
Meanwhile the entire surveillance video of thug Stoddard’s criminal acts are now available for viewing. Watch and see for yourself.
UPDATED 10/30/2009 3:35pm: Hearing Continued Until Thursday, November 5 For Decision
A Maricopa County judge listened for 90 minutes, to testimony from attorney Tom Liddy, who was representing the Sheriff’s Office this morning. The judge determined that the papers Maricopa County police thug Adam P. Stoddard stole from public defender Joanne Cuccia during a sentencing hearing on October 19, were subject to attorney-client privilege. In other words, the thug cop, as anyone with common sense knows, cannot just put his funky hands in an attorney’s files. Thug Stoddard also, according to testimony, made copies of all the stolen documents and gave them to county attorneys. It is becoming pretty clear that the head goon, Arpaio, likely ordered Stoddard to do this for whatever reason.
If this county judge determines next Thursday that the actions of Stoddard are not criminal in nature, than Arizona may as well give this land back to Mexico, as the laws and court systems here are no better than they are there.

In yet another episode of third-world justice down here in Maricopa County (Phoenix, AZ), Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio and his goons have now reached heights which make the governments of Somalia and Serbia/Kosovo look functional.
NBC 12 here in Phoenix first reported the incident which took place at a sentencing hearing for a Mr. Antonio Lozano on October 19 in a Maricopa County courtroom. While Mr. Lozano and his attorney, public defender Joanne Cuccia, were presenting their case to the judge, Maricopa County police thugs Adam Stoddard and Francisco Compillo, in yet another reminder to American citizens that we live in a police state, began rummaging through Ms. Cuccia’s files…right in front of the judge and everyone else in the courtroom. Surveillance video caught thugs Stoddard and Campillo in the act of tampering with court files and evidence, and they even had the nerve to make copies of said documents.
Mr. Lozano quickly pointed out the criminal behavior of the police thugs to his attorney. The hearing was stopped immediately and reset for a later date. A few days later, the presiding judge of Maricopa County ordered a hearing to show cause (for the police thugs to explain their actions) on October 30, today. So far the Maricopa County Superior Court docket in this case has not been updated to reflect what went on in today’s proceedings. But thug Arpaio, through his flunkies at his office, defended the criminal behavior of his cops, saying they were “searching for contraband.”
Though both thugs Stoddard and Campillo should face felony tampering and obstruction charges, we all know this is not only the United States – where thug cops are “heroes” – but also Maricopa County, where there is no such thing as the U.S. Constitution. We will update this story as soon as we hear what happened at today’s proceedings.
