Breaking news is now coming out of the United States District Courts that former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was formally convicted of a criminal charge on for refusing to stop traffic patrols that prosecutors and civil rights groups way specifically targeted immigrants.

The conviction marks a dark day for a politician who once drew strong popularity from such crackdowns on illegals but was ultimately booted from office as voters became frustrated over his controversial tactics and endless legal disputes.

The verdict from the United States District Court Judge, Susan Bolton, represents a victory for the critics who placed immense pressure on the policies of Arpaio and his efforts to remain tough on crime.

Those policies included jailing inmates in tents in what immigrant advocacy groups say was triple digit temperatures, forcing them to wear pink underwear and jumpsuits, and making thousands of arrests in crackdowns that they claim divided immigrant families from their children.

Sheriff Arpaio spent 24 years as the Sheriff of Metro Phoenix, and was widely popular amongst those who want to see illegal aliens kicked the hell out of our country.

Arpaio was able to defeat two previous criminal investigations that were focused on his office, but he wasn’t able to avoid the onset of legal problems when he pursued his signature immigration patrols for nearly a year and a half after judges had ordered him to stop because the court claimed they racially profiled Latinos.

The infamous lawman who made defiance a hallmark of his tenure as Sheriff, was found guilty of misdemeanour contempt-of-court for ignoring the 2011 initial court order to stop the patrols. The 85 year old faces up to six years in jail, although attorneys familiar with the case doubt that someone his age would be incarcerated.

Critics had hoped that Arpaio’s eight days in trial in a federal court in Phoenix would bring what they described as social justice for a law enforcement leader who had managed to defy the odds through much of his six terms.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Prosecutors say that Arpaio violated the order so he could promote his immigration enforcement efforts in an effort to boost his 2012 reelection campaign and even bragged about his continued crackdowns on illegals.

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio pauses as he answers a question at a news conference at Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Headquarters in Phoenix several months ago.

Arpaio was convicted of the criminal charges Monday, July 31st, 2017, for refusing to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.

Sheriff Arpaio blamed one of his former attorneys in the profiling case for not properly explaining the importance of the court order.

His defense also focused on what his attorneys said were weaknesses in the court order that failed to acknowledge times when Sheriff's deputies would detain immigrants and later hand them over to federal authorities.

Prosecutors say that the local police leaders chose a different route by allowing immigration enforcement to be handled by US authorities, whereas Arpaio made hundreds of arrests in multiple traffic patrols that specifically singled out immigrants and also performed business raids in which his officers targeted immigrants who used fraudulent IDs to get jobs.

Most of America, at least in the right, believe that Sheriff Arpaio did nothing wrong and is an American hero. What happened today was a travesty undermining the laws of the United States.

President Donald Trump has ushered in a new era and advocated similar policies, suggesting that each and every illegal alien has to go back to their country, and has currently built a widespread federal and local joint deportation force to ensure that's what happens.

In the end, Arpaio is just being punished for being ahead of his time by liberal judges and courts which clearly are making an example out of him. He's expected to appeal the verdict.

No, he's being done because he's a nasty little cocksucker who hid behind his badge and abused his authority. You unsurprisingly forget the callous disregard for human life that he had was not just aimed at immigrants but also Americans as well, to further drive it home a large number of those were what you might define as petty crimes, and some of those abused were later found innocent or still do. But hey I suppose it's alright to commit brutality even to the innocent and cover it up. You wouldn't mind if it was your mom or dad, sibling, child, mmm. Oh hey I forget, you only shout from the sidelines, like the other cowards.

I briefly met Sheriff Joe, twice. Both times he was upstanding, not vile, honest, not intending anything but FAIRLY representing the law. He is the epitome of a solid character.

The only thing this act shows is the unapologetic bald-faced corruption of the Leftists.

1, Of course you did, I believe you are being totally honest. :)

2. Do you think bad people go round saying 'hey, I'm evil, etc, here's a list of my crimes'

How many times have you heard people say shit like 'but he was always so polite, would always help out, a real gentleman', and in the meantime the cops are inside taking fucking body parts out of ther freezer or digging up the back yard. Oh wait, let me guess,when you 'met' him, you just knew he was wonderful, your gods answer to a human lie detector. No one can trick you.

Hang on I've just got to pick up my eyes, they keep rolling….. ok, got them.

3. If he's innocent of any crime then he will be proven so, oh wait, he was found guilty, well theres always appeals.

Last, I couldn't give a fuck about your desparate weasel talk about the 'Leftists', left, right, fucking centre, you're all pretty much the same, you always point the finger at the other sides without once going,'hey, maybe we're all wrong and we need the smug kicking out of us until we find a common ground. Oh, fuck, that's sounding dangerously like democracy'. A suggestion, when you finished smugly typing/talking shit about others, look in the mirror. I do and I know I get things wrong and I try to think how to make it right. It don't always work, but hey, why don't you give it a go?
