30.3 - Good News: Joe Arpaio convicted of criminal contempt

Good News: Joe Arpaio convicted of criminal contempt

And under the heading revenge is a dish best served cold with a subhead of it's about time, we have the Good News that former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the self-styled "America's toughest sheriff" whose specialty was bigoted arrests of Latinix, has been convicted of criminal contempt of court for his blatant refusal to obey a federal judge's orders halting his immigration sweeps.

While satisfying, the likelihood is that the 85-year-old Arpaio will never see actual jail time, which is especially unfortunate considering that he never showed any mercy toward those he targeted.

Even so, and even considering that his crimes go far beyond mere contempt for federal courts, I will still embrace the Good News of this smackdown of his arrogance.
