Hopefully the subcontractors will not be harassed and asked if they have a joint or smoke weed over 20 times.😂 I'm thankful you folk that are allowing this behavior are exposed. You know, I'm just gonna pray for officer E. Max and the other folks that share his sentiment. Jesus is real y'all.

Dont forget Salome and Wenden, we need patchwork at the least. Oh, and dont forget Vicksburg Road, where the last few months of flooding that are redirected from the pit road is washing all of the fill from beside the road, that used to run through vacant properties. Maybe that work would get done before the cemetary at the Vicksburg church gets flooded and caskets and bodies come floating down the river.

Damn...I usually side with the cops and give them the benefit of the doubt, but that stop was fucking bullshit...it has inspired me to permanently mount a cam in my truck though so I can record anyone that pulls me over...so nice work racists!

Where is that work???? Quartzite????

Will they have a joint?

What??? Not Bronco???

I would like to know if it’s against the law to have an air freshener dangling from one’s mirror. Is it also your office’s policy to detain a driver, asking repeatedly if he has marijuana? If not, Deputy Eli Max should be fired. The reputation of your department is at stake! Bad officers make everyone less safe!I would appreciate a response from you.

Racist or not. Eli Max conducted himself extremely unprofessionally. And it's a little suspicion that he did this to a black man.

Please reconstruct your police force, you can begin by removing the racists

I saw that video of one of your deputies harassing an innocent young black male motorist.It is disgusting that you would put bastards like that on your force. It was pure racial profiling.When will you MORONS realize that you are held to a higher standard AND RACIAL PROFILING IS WRONG???

There's no such thing as a good cop.

Can we bring a joint?

Eli Max working today?

I think you racists need an explanation of what THE ELI MAX VIDEO means. It means every armed robber, murderer, gang member who are of color w arrested by ELI MAX in the 3 years he worked will be a free man with even a mediocre lawyer. Thank you ELI MAX for every arrest you’ve made now has “GET OUT OF JAIL FREE” card. The citizens can thank ELI MAX for every violent criminal walking their streets who will be freed by this video.youtu.be/vmLXAD7FSxY

He accused him again of using drugs at the very end after all the questions/denials and absolutely no evidence! This cop states he does this with everyone he stops. Yeah right. I doubt that or there would have been numerous complaints already. You think he would act like that if he happen to pull someone over that he found out was an official with the local government? Interrogation & harassment over a simple traffic stop. Was he trained in his department to act that way? It is very hard to describe that encounter as "Protect & Serve".

A La Paz County Sheriff’s Deputy has accepted a plea agreement on charges of sexual assault and sexual abuse. La Paz Sheriff's Deputy John Gomez, 43, is alleged to have groped a female deputy at a party.The offer was accepted May 6 in La Paz County Superior Court.Gomez is charged with one count of sexual assault, a class 2 felony. If convicted, he will face a sentence of 5.25 to 14 years in prison. He is also charged with two counts of sexual abuse, a class 3 felony. If convicted, the sentence on each count would be 2.5 to 7.5 years.The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office investigated the matter. Gomez was arrested Aug. 24. He was indicted by the La Paz County Grand Jury Sept. 5.The Yuma County Attorney’s Office is prosecuting this case. La Paz County Attorney Tony Rogers said the case was conflicted out to Yuma County because it involved two La Paz County employees his office worked with very closely.Gomez no longer works for the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office. The Arizona Peace Officers Standards and Training Board revoked his certification.

Check our my top fan badge!

ELI MAX racist. Follows a black motorist then stops him for having an air freshener hanging from his rearview mirror. ELI MAX is so ignorant he thought he would get away with it. That’s why you must carry a camera to record police there are too many assholes like ELI MAX as deputies youtu.be/vmLXAD7FSxY

You do realize in La Paz that every arrest of a perpetrator of color by the racist ELI MAX is now null and void. Even a mediocre lawyer can get any perp off and free if ELI MAX was anywhere near the arrest site. youtu.be/VGfBhsck2a4

Why does it look like comments are being deleted?....

Still pulling over POC for air fresheners and and asking them about drugs... Still RACISTS!!

The ignorant ELI MAX still a cop or have they put him into the custodian position to clean the toilets. ELI MAX THE RACIST ASSHOLE. Is ELI missing a few cells in his temporal lobe. ELI MAX Is the reason no one cares about EOWs of LA PAZ COUNTY

Hey kids if you are black or Hispanic I’d stay far away from any deputy. They are all racists especially ELI MAX youtu.be/vmLXAD7FSxY

Blatantly openly racist department. Wow. Psycho sheriff department. The state should take a bulldozer to your department. Unbelievable.

youtu.be/_NqZnm7wQegWorthless lying racist animalsYou have lost all respectYou worked hard to earn the hateEnjoy the fruits of your labor
