SAD or Bad Timing or Both?

President Donald Trump might pardon ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio, who two weeks ago was found guilty of criminal contempt for refusing to stop traffic patrols that targeted suspected illegal immigrants.
“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump told Fox News Sunday, at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. where he’s staying for much of this month. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”
He added that if he does choose to pardon Arpaio, that it would come in the next few days.
“I might do it right away, maybe early this week,” he said. “I am seriously thinking about it.”
In 2011, an Arizona judge ordered the then-sheriff to cease the patrols, but they continued for another 17 months. He defended himself by saying one of his former attorney’s failed to fully explain the details of the restrictions issued by the court. Arpaio faces as much as six months in jail, though that is unlikely considering his 85 years of age.
“Is there anyone in local law enforcement who has done more to crack down on illegal immigration than Sheriff Joe?” asked Trump. “He has protected people from crimes and saved lives. He doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”
Fox News reached out to Arpaio and informed him of Trump’s support. The network reports that the former sheriff was surprised that Trump had heard of the verdict.
“I am happy he understands the case,” he said. “I would accept the pardon because I am 100 percent not guilty,” though he added that he “would never ask [Trump] for a pardon, especially if it causes heat. I don’t want to do anything that would hurt the president.”

He ignored a judges order, and willfully broke the law to "grandstand" and promote himself. people of Arizona got sick of his sorry a$$, and voted him out of office. he's a douche-bag just like trump, it figures YOU like him.

Just another nail in the coffin of drumpf, he hasn't accomplished one meaningful thing so far.

Sheriff Joe is going to lead the fundraising effort for the wall that Mexico is supposed to pay for.

The racist president pardoned a racist and Goob is happy.

Let Sheriff Joe and Trump do as they please. Neither realize they have lived all the way to their elder years being angry and fighting a never-ending battle that neither "side" can win. That sounds like torture to me.

The orange guy and sheriff Joe = BFF (birther friends forever).

Anybody remember Trump saying he had investigators in Hawaii finding out amazing things about Obama's birth certificate? He was going to expose it. Whatever happened with that? Guess that falls in the same category of Trump failing to follow up on suing the many women who accused him of groping. He said he'd sue them. When is this going to happen?

Patience, grasshopper. First we get a check from Mexico to pay for the wall. Then he releases his tax returns. Then he will do that other stuff you mentioned.

He's not a "pol", he's a public employee who swore an oath and got well-paid to UPHOLD the laws, ALL of them, not ignore the parts he doesn't like. Clearly you love a fascist with a badge and an unhinged dictator in the White House. They tried something similar in Germany a few years back - didn't work out very well. You love your own oppression.

To be fair, sheriff is an elective office. He was elected 6 times. That makes him a pol.

Elected to a position of LAW ENFORCEMENT. That makes him beholden to LAW. If you give powerful armed men free rein to make their own law on the fly and on the basis of their own beliefs and prejudices and backed by a badge, then there is a dangerous possibility to impose ideology. Led to the third Reich - headed that way now in the US. Of course, now the US has a nuclear arsenal and an uneducated, easily-frightenable and manipulated militia culture that is very well armed and is organizing on a scale not seen since the late 18th century. As Butch Trucks used to put on his bass drum head, "wake the **** up".

All elected officials are beholden to the law. If an official has to be elected to get a job, that makes him a politician as he must make his case to the people and the people decide if he will get the job. That is politics and the Sherriff of Maricopa County Arizona is an elected position.

Senator Arpaio? Could see this be reality against congressman Flake.

Arpaio was CONVICTED, Vince. Trump is pardoning someone whose trial has not even occurred yet!!
By your rules, it would be inherently honest and lawful for a black or Hispanic cop to arrest YOU because you are white.

From the article I posted above:

quote:

Arpaio is the former Maricopa County sheriff whose entire career made a mockery of civil and human rights. The United States Justice Department monitored his operation for decades for a wide range of outrageous and cruel practices, from housing prisoners in tents where temperatures hit 145 degrees to the racial profiling that finally got the sheriff convicted of a crime.

Arpaio was under a number of court orders over the years, and one was to stop profiling — stopping drivers or otherwise rounding up people who looked Hispanic. He defied the order. This is what led to his criminal conviction in July. He was scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 5, possibly to six months in jail.

Its a f#cking LIE. fake news.


MartinD28 - 8/30/2017 at 10:47 PM

The sheriff who thought he was above the law and who Trump considers a patriot for doing that cost the taxpayers 70 million dollars. What a true patriot he is...right???????

And he's thinking about running for the Senate vs. Jeff Flake. One can hope that the same voters in AZ who helped put the liar in chief into the White House would come to their senses and not send Joe to the Senate if he runs. Buyers' remorse?

Wrong. He openly and intentionally violated a judge's order, which means he did not uphold the law in any capacity, and it also says a lot about the man's character. If you condemn the thugs of any extremist group, you have to put the Sheriff in the same group since he demonstrated the same disregard for our laws. I guess you were just venting about your hatred for Obama and liberals.

So goob,

Is Sheriff Joe someone you look up to and admire?

Its hard to find anyone in politics who actually was actively working to stem illegal immigration.


BoytonBrother - 10/5/2017 at 01:58 AM

I'm kinda glad the old decrepit bastard is free. No need to lock up a guy in those years for something like that. I can assure you that going through the system will make him think long and hard about defying a judge's order again, lol.

So you admire him & his defying a judge's order? That is OK in your book for his actions and all the millions he cost the taxpayers of his county in lawsuits? He's one of the good guys...right?
