Default Joe Arpaio saga in Arizona

Federal judge refers Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for criminal contempt charges

A federal judge has referred Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to another judge in the U.S. Attorney’s office to be held in criminal contempt on multiple charges, court documents said Friday.
“The judge made his decision. He has been referring to it for months now, he has been referring to the possibility that he would refer some of the persons in front of him on civil contempt charges or for criminal contempt if he found that the remedies available for civil contempt were not sufficient to ensure compliance in the future,” said Dan Pochoda, senior counsel at the ACLU of Arizona. “And today, the judge did, in fact, refer all four of the persons who were found culpable of civil contempt including Sheriff Arpaio and his chief deputy Sheridan to the U.S. Attorney’s office here in Phoenix.”

Oh my. Hubby has been talking about this. I think they need to bring him up on cruel and unusual punishment for what he feeds them and never lettih them go outside.

It appears this has more to do with the policing policies and NOT how the jail is operated. He believes in targeting the demographics that tend to commit more crimes in his jurisdiction and those in the demographic being targeted aren't happy. He also believes in a strict enforcement of immigration laws, which as we all know, is contrary to the current policy position of the sitting POTUS. The locals obviously have no issue with it as they keep electing Arpaio...

It has ZERO to do with jail conditions. It's all from the top down official policy of racial profiling, and defying previous court orders to stop immigration sweeps.

And the reason that a**hat keeps getting reelected is A) Every elections he convinces the voting population of the county (older, republicans) how much safer he's made them from the scary illegals, and B) when that looks like it might nowt work he starts fraudulant (and unethical, if not outright illegal) investigations of his opponents. C) he's sold his soul to the devil for votes**

**may require additional fact checkng

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Will Be Charged With Criminal Contempt of Court

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio—famous for his hardline anti-immigration stance, dressing jail inmates in pink underwear, and housing inmates in Korean War tents in the desert heat—will be charged Wednesday with criminal contempt of court by the US Department of Justice for refusing to stop conducting immigration patrols, according to the Associated Press.

This will be an interesting twist to the election cycle...it plays right into the hands of Trump's contention that the current administration does not care about illegal immigration. He needed a bounce and, ironically, the DOJ is going to give it to him after dropping the ball on the emails...

The Trials of Sheriff Joe
Years of racial profiling and ignoring a federal judge’s order to stop his immigration sweeps may have finally caught up.

Joe Arpaio has reigned as Sheriff of Arizona’s largest county
, Maricopa, since 1993, when Latinos made up less than a fifth of the state’s population. In this time, he has forced prisoners to wear pink underwear, don striped black-and-white jumpsuits,
, and serve time beneath the desert sun in Army-surplus tents. He calls it his “concentration camp.” Most famously, he has dispatched his deputies to largely Latino neighborhoods where officers arrest people with the goal of checking their immigration status, then queue them up for deportation. It is for continuing these immigration sweeps against a federal judge’s injunction that Arpaio was officially charged Tuesday with misdemeanor contempt of court.
