Outside Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office

An anti-SB 1070 protester with a bullhorn walks past a line of Phoenix police, who have blocked the street in front of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office.

No counter-protesters have shown up, though a few downtown office workers have stopped by to watch. Most have been reluctant to comment. "This is just craziness," one woman said.
