Trump pardons the sheriff
« on: August 25, 2017, 09:40:43 PM »
President Trump pardoned former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio according to CNN/Google

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio on Friday, sparing the controversial Arizona sheriff a jail sentence after he was convicted of criminal contempt related to his hard-line tactics going after undocumented immigrants.

The move drew outcry from rights groups, who accuse Arpaio of violating the Constitution in his crackdown on illegal immigration.
During last year's presidential campaign, Arpaio was a vocal proponent for Trump's candidacy, and used his national notoriety to advocate for Trump's similarly aggressive stance on border security and deportations.

Why Joe Arpaio was found guilty
In a brief statement released late Friday evening, the White House praised Arpaio's career.
"Throughout his time as sheriff, Arpaio continued his life's work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration," the statement read. "Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now 85 years old, and after more than 50 years of admirable service to our nation, he is (a) worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon."
Arpaio thanked Trump on Twitter.
"Thank you @realdonaldtrump for seeing my conviction for what it is: a political witch hunt by holdovers in the Obama justice department!"," he posted.

I wish he'd have gotten to it sooner, but I'm sure there are legal hoops about which I know nothing.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

  That wasn't the charge at all he was charged with disobeying a court order.   That courts charge had not even gone to the next level it just went and charged him.   He was not given the jury trial he wanted it was refused but a dipshyt judge.

 So good he's done with that crap and I would bet that if he ran again for sheriff he would win in a landslide.
