Lou Ferrigno Made Honorary Deputy by Arpaio

Lou Ferrigno, the original Incredible Hulk on TV, has been appointed an honorary deputy by Maricopa County, Ariz. Sherriff Joe Arpaio.

Ferrigno is a strong proponent of Arizona’s tough new law against illegal immigration.

While Ferrigno lives in California, he’s a perfect fit for the Arizona position because he "sees firsthand the problems associated with illegal immigration there," Arpaio said, according to the Phoenix New Times.

"He's one big guy," the sheriff said of Ferrigno. "And I hear you don't want to make him angry."

The original Hulk acted as Arpaio's personal body guard at a rally for the immigration law last week in Tempe, Ariz.

Ferrigno said at the rally, “Everyone in the media is going on about a racial issue. It’s not, because now we have a lot of situations with weapons of mass destruction throughout the world. We need to take our country back and save our country, because we are a sovereign nation.”

The evening rally, organized by “tea party” groups featured speakers, who, addressing a mostly white crowd gathered at the stadium in Tempe,  emphasized that the controversial SB 1070 is not about race but the rule of law.
