A New Sheriff In Town

Amidst all the chaos of this past weekend, President Trump found time to escape the Nazi catcalls to suggest a pardon for someone I feel was railroaded by an activist judge.

President Trump may soon issue a pardon for Joe Arpaio, the colorful former Arizona sheriff who was found guilty two weeks ago of criminal contempt for defying a state judge’s order to stop traffic patrols targeting suspected undocumented immigrants.

Trump said the pardon could happen in the next few days, should he decide to do so.

Arpaio, 85, was convicted by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton of misdemeanor contempt of court for willfully disregarding an Arizona judge’s order in 2011 to stop the anti-immigrant traffic patrols. Arpaio had maintained the law enforcement patrols for 17 months thereafter.

So this judge not only decides to ignore the immigration laws, but also demands a border sheriff to do the same? To be brutally honest, I doubt I would follow that order, either. Activist judges are granted entirely too much power, and congress needs to start reining these people in; the sooner, the better.

For what it’s worth, I realize many people see Arpaio as an arrogant blowhard, but I would fully support a pardon for the man.

  1. It will take several consecutive Conservative Presidents to get rid of all the left wing activist judges in the federal system. And the same goes for local and in-between election years.

    Remember THAT, next time you plan on sitting out an election. Get involved. And VOTE.

  2. Cathy – Enforce the law and follow the constitution. How difficult it that for judges?

    TXNick – It would happen more quickly if the GOP actually kept its promises.

    Proof – Great minds…

  3. He’s earned quite a few get-outta-jail-free cards in my opinion. Seems like a pardon for disobeying an UN-lawful judgment should be automatic.
