Last year President Trump did one of the most unpopular things in the history of the search for equal rights and justice for all. President Trump pardoned former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was facing accusations of racial profiling. The courts had in July 2017 found him guilty of disobeying court orders in cases that involved racial profiling.
Joe Arpaio had been ordered by the courts to stop all actions that amounted to discrimination of the immigrants in the county. However, he did not stop. Together with his officers, they continued oppressing the immigrants and disregarding their human rights in one of the most lethal ways.
The acts of violation committed by Joe Arpaio involved grave violation of human rights such as depth. Some people died following mistreatment in concentration camps that he had established to deal with illegal immigrants.
According to a report that was done by Phoenix New Times, there was a woman who died after he was denied an opportunity to seek mediation while in the concentration camp. Joe is also accused of making women give birth while chained to their beds. The mistreatment in the concentration camps as revealed by the media outlet was horrible.
For someone accused of such grave matters, it is disheartening how he managed to get away with such crimes. It is even perplexing that the president of the United States thinks that this is a man who deserves to be set free.
Unless the American law does no longer apply, it is sad that someone facing such accusations has finally been set free by a court of law through the recommendation of the president.
It is a sad time to be alive to see such injustices happen with no any action being taken. As a country, we need to evaluate ourselves and determine where the rains started beating us. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/press/ and http://james-larkin.com/

Lacey Larkin term the pardon as a sad event in the history of human rights activism. That Joe Arpaio is free is something we should all be ashamed of. Joe committed some heinous acts which deserve to be punished. Lacey and Larkin know Arpaio very well.
He was behind their arrest in 2007 for a story they did about a secret grand jury order which had given Arpaio powers to search their media house. Lacey and Larkin were released within 24 hours after public outcry.
