Phoenix police officer Paul Dobson is the subject of an internal investigation for posting an online video in which he says he opposes Arizona’s new immigration law because it “will make me feel like a Nazi out there.”
The Arizona Republic says Dobson will likely receive a written reprimand or minor form of discipline for granting the interview without supervisor approval. The case is pending final review.

In the three-minute video, the 20-year veteran of the police department says he is speaking only for himself when he expresses his objections to the new law, which takes effect July 29.
“I have a great deal of contempt for it, I’m very emotional about it,” he says in the clip.
The video is produced by the California-based Brave New Foundation and is posted on the its online community Facebook page CuĂŠntame.
