"I guess, you know, that's show business. I'm a little concerned about the music, where kids can get this type of music," Arpaio told KPHO. "I think it sends a bad message. I understand freedom of speech, but there has to be a line of threatening a law enforcement official."
Last night, Arpaio took a bit more of a direct stance on Twitter, saying "Msg for the San Diego band 'Alligators' who wrote new song called 'Kill Joe Arpaio': BITE ME."
So what if he mixed up the animal? One has to admit: great pun, Joe.
But does the song in question actually tell people to enact violence on Arpaio in an Ice-T/Body Count 'Cop Killer' fashion? Crocodiles actually just splice a dirge-like rock track with a handful of media quips, where the words "fear and crime" are used within politics to gain votes, with what's presumably Arpaio answering questions regarding the future of Arizona law.
Crocodiles are on the road supporting their new album 'Sleep Forever' and are scheduled for a two-week run in Europe starting Thursday. They return stateside in late October and so far, no Arizona date is on the books, as the band refuses to play there.
Listen to 'Kill Joe Arpaio' below.
