Published

on

A 92-year-old World War II veteran was blessed by a police officer who went above and beyond after responding to a theft call.

Louis C. Hicks, from Austin, Texas was using the stove in his house to keep warm. After calling the police to report tools being stolen from his shed, Officer Chastity Salazar of the Austin Police Department noticed the unsafe conditions Hicks was living in.

Officer Salazar along with some of her coworkers, came together and bought Hicks a heater for his house, according to Liftable. Not stopping there, the team then had an electric fireplace installed in the house. Another helper, Officer Bino Cadenas, visited Hicks often and found out more things the veteran “wished he could have” – including shirts, underwear, chips and peanuts.

Not one to ask for anything, Hicks was overwhelmed with gratitude at the kind donations, KVUE reported.

“I’ve never had no one to do nothing for me,” an emotional Hicks said. “After my mother passed away and left me to take care of my two sisters — nobody never did nothing to help me.”

“You hate to ask anybody ’cause sometimes they’ll frown on you, and I’m a true veteran,” Hicks said. “I won’t ask. I won’t ask.”

In the heartwarming story, the veteran finished out his interview stating, “God is good”. Hicks is still taking donations; his “wish list” and how to donate can be found here.

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

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

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.
