Crime, Jail, and Latinos: #BREAKING: Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio found guilty of criminal contempt. STORY: http://bit.ly/2uR9EKf abe 15 ARIZONA HE GUILTY PHOENIX - Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of a criminal charge Monday for refusing to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, marking a final rebuke for a politician who once drew strong popularity from such crackdowns but was ultimately booted from office as voters became frustrated over his headline-grabbing tactics and deepening legal troubles. The verdict from U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton represents a victory for critics who voiced anger over Arpaio's unusual efforts to get tough on crime, including jailing inmates in tents during triple-digit heat, forcing them to wear pink underwear and making hundreds of arrests in crackdowns that divided immigrant families. When reached for comment by ABC15 on Monday morning, Arpaio said his "main reaction was disappointment." Arpaio will now appeal Judge Bolton's verdict in order to get a trial by jury, according to a statement from his attorneys. "Her verdict is contrary to what every single witness testified in the case," the statement read. "Arpaio believes that a jury would have found in his favor, and that it will." Arpaio, who spent 24 years as the sheriff of metro Phoenix, skirted two earlier criminal investigations of his office. But he wasn't able to avoid legal problems when he prolonged his signature immigration patrols for nearly a year and a half after a different judge ordered him to stop. That judge later ruled they racially profiled Latinos. The lawman who made defiance a hallmark of his tenure was found guilty of misdemeanor contempt-of-court for ignoring the 2011 court order to stop the patrols. The 85-year-old faces up to six years in jail, though attorneys who have followed the case doubt that someone his age would be incarcerated. [Read more in comments.]

Bodies , Energy, and Love: What Emotions Get Stuck in your Body? Anger Fear Disgust Happiness Sadness Surprise Neutral Anxiety Love Depression Contempt Pride Shame Envy 15 10 Our emotions hold power. Many of us over the years have conditioned ourselves to bury that which we refuse to face inside of ourselves. Pain, fear, guilt, doubt, all of these dense energies can store themselves within us. By freeing our stuck emotions, this energy which holds tremendous power can act as the fastest and most effective method to awaken and heal ourselves. By cleaning out the old stagnant energies that we have buried away, we create room for new energies that may bring forth healing to restore balance within the body. A weight is then lifted as we let go of that which no longer serves us, ridding ourselves of the anchor that's held us down subconsciously for so many years, as dark, uncomfortable feelings transform into love. Anger inflates us...it's hot and too big for comfort! Fear contracts and puts us into fight or flight mode... everything within us contracts, including the pineal gland. Grief hurts, it's a heavy emotion that we can drag along with us for a long time. To release trapped emotions and stagnant energy we must allow ourselves to heal. We must face that which is uncomfortable for us to look at and we must allow ourselves to feel those emotions until they slowly whither away and we then can get ready to release them. Far too often we'd rather ignore, self medicate, and do anything else that allows us to take our minds off of that which brings us discomfort. Work on healing your heart by talking to the inner child that you've ignored within yourself for so many years. An aspect of yourself that you abandoned because you couldn't stand to look at the dark side of duality that exists within you. It seems we're only there for ourselves when times are good, but as soon as we face some internal challenges that we in turn feel overwhelmed by, we immediately abandon an intimate aspect of ourselves that cries for healing. Detox your body, try some yoga maybe, incorporate some conscious breath work and meditate. Work to heal your heart. Through the physical detoxification of our bodies there comes an energetic purging to follow, as old energies and toxins are released through the healing process. Consciousvibrancy
