Arizona’s unapologetic six-term sheriff, Joe Arpaio, was voted out of office in 2016 after taking a stand against President Barack Obama at the time. Among his many anti-criminal, pro-American ways, his no-excuses approach to tackling the prolific illegal immigration problem in his state landed him liberal crosshairs.
Even since he was removed, the left has been out to get him and haven’t stopped since Barack Obama has been out of office. “America’s toughest sheriff” did what he wanted that he believed was in the best interest of the nation, by trying to reduce the influx of illegals and the crime they spread.
Standing up for this made him a target and now Obama’s former administration finally got what they wanted. The people in Maricopa County who respect all that Arpaio did for him could riot since justice was not served to this man who served and protected them.
Arpaio had been fighting a federal trial for years that had been brought against him for refusing to stop his so-called “crime suppression sweeps” which rounded up people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally.
“Although a judge ordered Arpaio to stop the traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, the self-styled ‘America’s toughest sheriff’ did not,” AZ Family reported. “Arpaio continued to run those operations for nearly 18 months after that order.” Judge Murray Snow found the 85-year-old and three of his top aides in civil contempt last May. Now, at the culmination of those charges, he’s just learned his fate.
Many are hoping that President Donald Trump can fix it, considering they share many of the same views on assertive action against immigration.
AZ Family reports:
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Monday found former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio guilty of criminal contempt of court, the culmination of a federal trial that was years in the making.
The six-term sheriff, who was voted out of office in November 2016, is known for, among other things, cracking down on illegal immigration and using controversial “crime suppression sweeps” to round up those suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. Those operations, which went on for years, are what landed him in court.
Although a judge ordered Arpaio to stop the traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, the self-styled “America’s toughest sheriff” did not. Arpaio continued to run those operations for nearly 18 months after that order.
Last May, Judge Murray Snow found Arpaio, now 85, and three of his top aides in civil contempt.
In a strongly worded 162-page document, Snow wrote that Arpaio’s office violated court orders intended to end racial profiling practices by his department.
“They have demonstrated a persistent disregard for the orders of this Court, as well as an intention to violate and manipulate the laws and policies regulating their conduct,” Snow said.
Although Arpaio had entered a not guilty plea in the criminal contempt-of-court case, he later admitted to civil contempt and has always insisted that he never intentionally violated the court original order. It’s uncertain whether Trump can pardon this decision or not.
This Sherrif was found guilty and is being called a traitor by the left for actions he took on behalf of the American people and the sovereignty of our country. Yet Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama still go free without a single charge against them for all of the traitorous things they have done.
“Originally scheduled for April, Arpaio’s criminal contempt trial began on June 26. He had asked for a jury trial, saying that an elected official’s actions should be decided by an impartial jury of his peers, not a judge. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton rejected the argument and denied that request. Arpaio’s team appealed the decision, but the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Bolton’s ruling,” according to AZ Family.
“Four days into the trial, Arpaio’s lawyers filed a motion seeking an acquittal, saying the statute of limitation had passed.”
The left is celebrating this as a victory against tyranny while completely ignoring all the real acts of treason their favorite politicians have committed. The main difference is that Joe was trying to stop the illegal immigration and liberals have only tried to arm, aid, and abet them.
While we don’t condone anyone refusing to follow a judge’s orders, if justice was really served in this case, then Democrats would be held accountable for their actions as well. What Sheriff Joe did resulted in numerous illegals being sent back to where they came from and potentially saved countless citizens from harm. Liberal politician tyranny results in countless American lives being lost. The left apparently puts more value on illegals lives than their fellow citizens’.
