Default Most Racist Sheriff in America Gets the Boot

Maricopa Count Sheriff Joe Arpaio, arguably one of the most if not the most racist sheriff in America, was defeated in his re-election bid.

Quote:
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R), a vocal supporter of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, is projected to lose his reelection race in Arizona to Democrat Paul Penzone.

The Associated Press has Arpaio down 45 percent to Penzone's 55 percent.
Arpaio, who was seeking a seventh term, is known for his hard-line immigration stance.

It is rumored that Arpaio will be heading to Washington DC and to be appointed to a position by newly elected Donald Trump that doesn't seem the least concerned that "Sheriff Joe" is facing criminal prosecution.

Quote:
PHOENIX - Prosecutors said Tuesday they will charge Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio with criminal contempt of court over immigration patrols.

The announcement was made the day before early voting starts in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s bid for a seventh term as metro Phoenix’s top law enforcer, his toughest fight yet after more than two decades in office. Arpaio, who calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” made a name for himself cracking down on illegal immigration and forcing jail inmates to wear pink underwear.*

The charges were revealed at a hearing to discuss issues raised by another judge’s request that Arpaio face criminal contempt charges after refusing to stop targeting Latinos in patrols.

Prosecutor John Keller said in court that the government will bring charges, with the next step being a court filing that’s akin to a criminal complaint.

Arpaio could face up to six months in jail if convicted of misdemeanor contempt. Arpaio has already been found guilty of civil contempt of court in relation the the patrols.

If true then Donald Trump doesn't seem to care about whether a person that's been busted for targeting racial profiling and exceeding his jurisdictional authority is also a possible criminal.

This is the kind of political retribution for which the left is famous. Let's see if President Trump does the same,,, Which I doubt.

Meanwhile...;

This is the kind of nonsensical dodge response that the right is famous for.


But seriously, some individuals just plain ignore actual issues for which Arpaio has been busted on.
Instead, try to label it as "political retribution"...

You guys hounded Hillary over b.s. Benghazi and tried to demand indictment over a private email server where you didn't even think twice when Bush had his private email server.
And you have the gall to accuse the left of "political retribution"?

In the lefts eye he is a racist because he enforced the immigration laws of the country, something obama and our congress refused to do.

And for CBS or any MSM network calling anyone criminal while ignoring hillary is really laughable.

The KEY word here is " arguably " and if I might say just how many times in the past 8 years has this same line of thought been applied to the Democrats?

Again in the last 8 years how many times has this line of thought been applied to actions taken by the DNC?

Well it seems we won't be making the changing of the W.H. GUARD as united persons working to bring America together....

Which is so that some want to keep American's apart, disillusioned.

An offense against the U.S. can be pardoned by the president.

In your view none of these racists are racist.

Maricopa County is highly Republican and it required considerable support from the Republicans to remove Joe Arpaio from office.

Is it really "political retribution" when the sheriff repeatedly exceeds his authority of office? When the sheriff intentionally violates Constitutionally protected rights? A sheriff that both violates the laws and nefariously enforces the laws" When the sheriff intentionally refuses to comply with the orders of the court?

It's interesting because the recently retired Chief of Police, Jody Fanning, is a personal friend of the family and has just been elected to be our Local constable. Jody dropped by to visit and leave a yard sign prior to the election and I asked him about the job of Constable because I didn't even know we had one (only recently moved here last year). He informed me that the Constable was the only law enforcement officer with the authority to arrest the Sheriff in Arizona. The position was created in the 19th Century because a sheriff was exceeding his authority, violating the Constitution, violating state laws, nefariously enforcing state laws, and refusing to comply with the Court.

Gee, just like Joe Arpaio has been doing down in Maricopa County for years. Joe Arpaio shouldn't have just been removed from office by the good people of Maricopa County. Joe Arpaio shouldn't just be prosecuted for the misdemeanor of contempt of court. Joe Arpaio should be arrested by the local Constable and prosecuted for felonies he's committed in office by his historical abuse of office and violations of both state and federal law.

This shouldn't be called "political retribution" because it should be called a case of criminal justice.

Of course Donald Trump doesn't care about the Constitution, the laws, or courts in the United States and we know that because many of his campaign proposals violate the Constitution, violate the laws, and violate existing federal court orders.
