Fresno County Republicans should be ashamed that former sheriff Joe Arpaio was chosen to speak as an honored guest at their annual fund-raising event, which is meant to honor law enforcement, promote Blue Lives Matter and foster trust with police.
He is a convicted criminal who admits guilt by accepting a pardon. It is also a fact that he has used unlawful means to run the prison system in Arizona, specifically targeting Hispanics. How does he personify any of the values they are honoring? Clearly, he does not!
