|1.||Arizona Immigration Law|
A bill that was attempted to be passed by Arizona in order to put a leash on illegal immigration, which the federal government has largely failed to do; Arizona spends hundreds of millions on jailing illegals, and who knows how much more on educating them, providing welfare for them, etc., even though they don't pay taxes.
The law's purpose is based off of a federal law that prohibits illegal immigration. Contrary to popular (actually, minority, because the majority of the country supports it) belief, its parameters strictly and directly prohibit racial profiling of any kind. Police officers aren't allowed to go up to anyone they want and say "show me your papers." In fact, they are required to check immigration status if one has already been arrested for a crime.
Countless other states have introduced and/or instituted their own versions of SB-1070. The Obama Administration has shown blatant opposition to the bill and managed to essentially take away all proponents of it that gave it any effectiveness at all. Not only that, but State Department officials admitted to dissing Arizona's "humanitarian rights-violating" bill to countries such as China and Libya. Most, if not all of the Administration's accusations of the bill have truly been completely false.
Obama: "If you didn't have your papers and you took your kids out for ice cream, you could be harassed." (actual quote)
Someone who has actually read the Arizona Immigration Law: "No, you couldn't. Unless going out for ice cream is a crime now."

" Hey Mr. Ben-Wilson, you need to keep a leash on your children, they're eating at my turnips... You're such A Segovia!"
" Someone's parked in my parking spot this morning!" "I need to consult the resident officer, in his office with the purple couch and his multi-colored polo on, maybe A Segovia."
A Petty Misdemeanor is the lowest class of Civil Offense. It is not a crime, and thus is not technically classified as breaking the law.
It generally results from breaking a City Ordinance, such as illegal parking, letting your dog off a leash in a leash required area, or a very minor shoplifting offense.
Petty Misdemeanors, in terms of severity, are below Misdemeanors, which are below crimes. Petty Misdemeanors, by law, cannot require jail time and any fines imposed shall not exceed $300.
Ordinances are passed by cities, since cities cannot technically enact laws. Many ordinances are total bullshit. For example, in Chicago, 'exceedingly hideous people may not appear in public.' Or in Hillsboro, Oregon, 'your horse cannot ride in the back seat of your car.'

Mike: "Only a single candy bar, who stops someone for that?! What a douchebag!"
Jason: "Yeah, but it's probably just a petty misdemeanor"
David of Chicago: "Woah, check out that fuck ugly woman over there."
Pat: "I hope the cops give her a ticket for being so fuck ugly, she shouldn't be showing her face to the public."
