6 Year-Old Fighting Cancer Gets Sworn-In as Police Officer

Published

on

A young girl was sworn in as a police officer at just 6-years-old while fighting terminal cancer.

“Abigail Arias, from Freeport, Texas, is battling terminal cancer. She has Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer in children that doctors say has left Abigail with a heartbreaking prognosis. At just 6 years old, she had big dreams of becoming a police officer to help fight “the bad guys” living inside her tiny body,” according to Liftable.

Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey Jr met Abigal in December where she told Chief Garivey that she wanted to be a police officer. The Police Chief took interest in Arias’ story and was determined to help the little girls dreams come true.

“Her story brought police officers from all over today into one room and it was a magical moment for all who were in attendance,” said an emotional Chief Garivey.

Congratulations to the newest member of the Freeport Police Department, Honorary Officer Abigail Rose Arias! She took an oath today to continue fighting the “bad guys” until she is cancer free! What a great day for the City of Freeport, and our Law Enforcement Family from all over this great state, who were in attendance! Also a special thanks to Rick Fernandez owner of Cop Stop Inc. for the wonderful FPD uniform and duty rig! #thinblueline Ruben Arias

While Abigail’s condition is slowly deteriorating her small body, Garivey has faith in her strength, “the chemo and radiation hasn’t worked and basically the family is now leaving it in God’s hands and praying for a miracle.”

Arias’ parents are enjoying their time with their young daughter after some discouraging news from doctors. “They basically said it’s time to enjoy some life,” her mother Ilene told CNN.

Abigail’s courage and strength inspired members of the Freeport Police Department in Texas to attend her swearing-in ceremony. The determination to follow her dreams, even at a young age, is a characteristic that will aid Abigail in her fight against cancer.

In my 27 years of being a cop, today was no doubt one of the proudest moments ever. Abigail Rose Arias, thank you for…

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

on

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
