Pardon me, but when does treating every human being with dignity equate to socialism? It does if you believe the words of guest columnist Ms. Linda Turley-Hansen in this newspaper on 1/8/12. Those of us who believe Joe Arpaio has gone too far with his mistreatment of Hispanic detainees do not want an open border, nor are we socialists. Supporting human rights is everyone's responsibility. Throwing around 1950s style "the commies are coming" rhetoric isn't what Arizona needs to improve our reputation. If we want to attract more business and tourists (I'm proud to be a capitalist) then the fear mongering language Ms. Turley-Hansen and Joe Arpaio pass off as truth has to stop.
