Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio convicted of Criminal Contempt

Mooch fired, Arpaio about to put on pink underwear, I CAN’T KEEP UP!

Joe Arpaio, a former Arizona sheriff whose extreme stance on illegal immigration made him a household name, was convicted Monday of criminal contempt of court for ignoring a judge’s order to stop detaining people because he merely suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.

U.S. District Judge Susan R. Bolton wrote that Arpaio had shown a “flagrant disregard” for the court’s command and that his attempt to pin the conduct on those who worked for him rang hollow.

  1. Arpaio is the prime example for why county sheriffs should be appointed and not elected. Electing law enforcement officials – who have total impunity and zero accountability – is one of the most idiotic things imaginable.

  2. Maybe that’s why the British copied it.
    Now we’ve unqualified party hacks as police commissioners.
    Few know who they are, voter share is low.

    They frequently get removed for misdemeanours,
    another management layer taking tax payers money.
    But hey, it’s American and those guys know what they’re doing…
