Judge Snow: Arpaio Committed Perjury, Criminal Referral to Come

This is serious for Sheriff Joe http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/judge-snow-arpaio-committed-perjury-criminal-referral-to-come-8338270

Outside Phoenix's Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse on Tuesday, opponents of Sheriff Joe Arpaio serenaded passersby with live mariachi music, chanted "Arrest Arpaio, not the people," and unveiled a giant balloon depicting their nemesis in handcuffs and stripes.


But inside the courthouse, by the the end of a five-hour session, Arpaio remained unscathed and uncuffed, even as federal Judge G. Murray Snow signaled that his case would likely be referred for criminal prosecution and agreed with an attorney for the plaintiffs that Arpaio committed perjury while testifying during his 21-day civil contempt trial last year.

Recently, Snow declared that Arpaio, his Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, Lieutenant Joe Sousa, and former executive chief Brian Sands were guilty of civil contempt for the MCSO's defiance of the judge's orders arising from the civil-rights case Melendres v. Arpaio, in which Arpaio and his agency were found to have committed widespread racial profiling against Latinos in Maricopa County. In a 162-page "Findings of Fact," Snow ruled that Arpaio, Sheridan, and others at MCSO "willfully" and "intentionally" thumbed their noses at the court's dictates and were dishonest with the court and the monitor appointed to watch over the agency.

The purpose of Tuesday's hearing was to discuss remedies for the civil contempt violations and the possibility of referring Arpaio and others to the U.S. Attorney's Office for Arizona for criminal contempt charges, which could carry prison sentences.

During the hearing, Snow said he was considering four individuals for criminal contempt referrals: Arpaio; Sheridan; the former head of the MCSO's internal affairs unit (known as the Professional Standards Bureau), Captain Steve Bailey; and longtime attorney for the MCSO Michele Iafrate.

4. Nope.

 

No point in wasting time on Barry. His term is almost done. Far more important to keep the next fraud from taking over.

Either of the two.

10. Gosh, you are so funny.

 

I want them to look for a Hispanic male, if that is what the suspect is. I don't want them to look for a Hispanic male is the suspect is described as a white male, Asian male, black male, transgender male or green grumpy pickled cucumber.

And just why does Joe like all of his prisoners to wear pink underwear? Is it a possibility that he lives in a closet?

12. Federal Judge Upholds Racial Profiling Conviction Against Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Sheriff Joe is having a bad month http://countercurrentnews.com/2015/06/federal-judge-upholds-racial-profiling-conviction-against-sheriff-joe-arpaio/

A federal judge just upheld the conviction against Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In the new ruling, a suit filed by the U.S. Justice Department was maintained against Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. That suit alleges damning, widespread civil rights violations by the notorious Sheriff and Fox News pundit.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Roslyn Silver said that the findings of a previous federal judge in a separate 2007 lawsuit filed by civil rights groups, must stand.

That judge ruled that Arpaio’s deputies routinely engaged in corruption and racial profiling against Latino drivers. It added that Latino drivers were unlawfully detained with no probable cause other than their race. This, of course, is entirely illegal, but it has been par for the course under Sheriff Joe’s leadership.

Judge Silver refused to allow any parties involved to relitigate further.

The allegations surrounding the “discriminatory traffic stop claims” were confirmed in giving the summary judgment for the Justice Department attorneys. Those attorneys represented a 2012 suit which alleged that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office deliberately and without regard for the law, engaged in such policies of racial profiling and unlawful arrest of people based only on their being Latino.

The suit called out Sheriff Joe for routinely violating the rights of political opponents as well. This included methods of targeting with “unsubstantiated complaints” as well as “lawsuits” and in at least one case, even false arrest.
