PHOENIX (AP) — The political career of Joe Arpaio ended last year when the six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix known for cracking down on illegal immigration and housing inmates in tents outside in the desert heat was trounced in an election that focused on his own legal troubles.

Now, the 85-year-old who called himself America’s toughest sheriff will face his day of reckoning in court for defying a judge’s order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.

Arpaio’s trial starts Monday on a criminal contempt-of-court charge for prolonging the patrols for nearly a year and a half. The judge later found that Arpaio’s officers had racially profiled Latinos.

Trump needs to give him a pardon. Then award a medal of freedom.

Any info on the procedure?

Does Joe get a jury of twelve or just the judge?

***WARNING***

AP = All Propaganda

Don’t believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.

"Day of reckoning" AKA DOING HIS FREAKING JOB!!!

“A few weeks later, he told a TV interviewer that deputies were still detaining immigrants in the country illegally.”

I don’t believe that line his correct as Arpaio would have never admitted to illegal activity.

“President Trump pardon him if convicted.”

Why not pardon prior to the federal trial?

Trump has made no noises concerning the miscarriage of justice in the Bundy matters. He has not pushed for justice in the matter of targeting TeaParty groups by the IRS. Hillary Clinton is walking scott-free. No one is going after Lynch. This president is not interested in justice at all. Why should Sheriff Joe be any exception?
