Police State [Open Season on Non-Whites]. From [HERE] As a powerful hurricane bore down on Texas, President Trump on Friday sneakily pardoned Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff whose aggressive efforts to hunt down and detain non-white undocumented immigrants made him a national symbol of the divisive politics of immigration and earned him a criminal contempt conviction.
In a two-paragraph statement, the White House said that Mr. Arpaio gave “years of admirable service to our nation” and called him a “worthy candidate for a presidential pardon.”
Arpaio’s abject treatment of incarcerated non-white immigrants and other detainees at the outdoors Tent City in triple-digit Arizona desert heat vaulted him to nationwide fame. He routinely disparaged Latinos using derogatory terms like “wetback,” “Mexican bitches,” “fucking Mexicans,” and “stupid Mexicans.” He has forced detainees to wear pink underwear and trotted them out in public to humiliate them. And his immigration raids were indiscriminate — children and pregnant women were among those detained and handcuffed. Arpaio also once promised to issue automatic weapons to his deputies to catch “illegal aliens attempting to escape.” [MORE]
In 2007 Arpaio went on the CNN Lou Dobbs show and said he considered a comparison between his department and the Ku Klux Klan to be "an honor." [MORE].
"With his pardon of Arpaio, Trump has chosen lawlessness over justice, division over unity, hurt over healing,” ACLU deputy legal director Cecillia Wang said in a statement.
“Once again, the president has acted in support of illegal, failed immigration enforcement practices that target people of color and have been struck down by the courts.”
“His pardon of Arpaio is a presidential endorsement of racism.” [MORE]
This pardon is another signal to racists in uniform and out of uniform that they have a green light to act genocidally toward non-whites. [MORE] As Doc Blynd explains, it is also a reminder that non-whites "are simultaneously both enemies and slaves of the Corporate state - colonized, serveilled and patrolled by the desensitized and lobotomized drones of the colonizers."

Mr. Trump, a psychopathic moron, called Mr. Arpaio “an American patriot” in a tweet later Friday. “He kept Arizona safe!” the president said.
He was found guilty of criminal contempt after defying a judge’s order to stop racially profiling non-white immigrants in violation of the 4th Amendment of the Constitution, according to the court decision.
Skin Color was the Criteria. The charge followed a 2011 court order by U.S. District Court Judge Murray Snow forcing Arpaio to stop racial profiling people based on the color of their skin. Arpaio’s police department was found to routinely racially profile Latinos, by prolonging traffic stops to determine the immigration status of individuals. In violation of the 4th Amendment Officers stopped people merely on the belief that 'they looked illegal.'
The court cited Arpaio’s willingness to “continue to keep doing what he had been doing” even though the 2012 preliminary injunction required that he stop pursuing the arrest or detention of people “merely based on the belief or suspicion, or reality, that they were here in this country illegally alone.” The court also indicated that Arpaio failed to follow up with his subordinates to see if the order was being complied with.
“Not only did Defendant abdicate responsibility, he announced to the world and to his subordinates that he was going to continue business as usual no matter who said otherwise,” the ruling pointed out.
President of the Racists Abused His Power. This pardon was not done for the general welfare. Trump used his pardon power to block a federal judge’s effort to enforce the Constitutional rights of non-whites. Arpaio's failure to comply with the court order was not due to incompetence, misunderstanding, poor training or poor organization wthin his department. Rather, his failure to comply as an officer sworn to uphold the Constitution, was intentional - hence, his misdemeanor conviction for criminal contempt. With his pardon racist Trump is expressing contempt for Non-Whites and the Constitution.
Harvard law professor Noah Feldman explained on Bloomberg View. “His actions defied the Constitution itself, the bedrock of the entire system of government.” By saying Mr. Arpaio’s offense was forgivable, Professor Feldman added, Mr. Trump threatens “the very structure on which his right to pardon is based.” [MORE]
The question is how low will this dumb motherfucker go? Trump is obsessed with skin color. Dr. Blynd explains Racism white supremacy is psychopathic degeneracy. Suffering from the disease of constant comparison, racists & their cartoon beliefs [imagining themselves to be a part of a hierarchy wherein persons unable to produce color & lacking melanin are supreme; imagining themselves to be higher than whatever they imagine you to be and believing they are a separate human species or "other" to you] are in a state of non-reality, a play world. However, with the power to project their nonsense into reality racists like Trump are dangerous to the world. Indeed, Dr. Frances Cress Wesling explained that racists will do anything to attain their mindless goals and "their dominant occupation is the destruction of the universe." [MORE] and [MORE].
Stopping, Frisking & Demanding Identification from Non-whites for No Valid Reason. In order for the police to stop you the Supreme Court has ruled that the 4th Amendment requires police to have a reasonable articulable suspicion that there is criminal activity afoot and the person detained is involved in the activity. In order to frisk you the Supreme Court has ruled that police must have independent, reasonable articulable suspicion that the person is armed and dangerous before they may touch you (a cursory patdown of outer clothing for weapons). Police may not act on on the basis of an inchoate and unparticularized suspicion or a hunch - there must be some specific articulable facts along with reasonable inferences from those facts to justify the intrusion.[MORE] Clearly, these rules are only intended for white people.

Targeted by Skin Color. In Nazi Germany , as part of the destruction process of the Jews, the Nazi's marked Jews with a star. Without the stars (and meticulous recordkeeping) there was no way to tell who was a semite and who was not. Nazi's created an elaborate system of movement restrictions and identification measures that included personal Jew identification cards, passports marked with a J, assignment of names and the outward marking of persons with a yellow star. Jews were only allowed to appear in public when wearing the Jewish star. [MORE]
According to Raul Hilberg: "the whole identification system, with its personal documents, specially assigned names, and conspicuous tagging in public, was a powerful weapon in the hands of the police. It was a control measure in that it enabled the police to pick up any Jew, anywhere, anytime. [MORE] Sound familiar?
The elite media has labelled Arpaio's policy or "papers please" or "show me your papers" laws as anti-Hispanic. That is half truth. Certainly they affect Latinos [white immigrants are always exempt]. But these unconstitutional laws also target anyone else with Brown or Black skin who an officer subjectively believes might be illegal based on physical characteristics. Thus, Africans, Carribeans, Asians, Indians, Arabs and even African Americans can be stopped & detained if they subjectively appear to be undocumented to a cop [however that looks]. And this is where we say something like 'this is "arbitrary" and "repugnant to the Constitution" blah blah.' But, the system of racism is the context or reality we face and the 4th Amendment is just words on paper and it does not protect us.
