It's pretty shocking that a Sheriff was able to arrest reporters simply for, reporting news. But he did and now the taxpayers have to pay to bail him out.
"Who thinks you can arrest American journalists for what they write?" Lacey said Friday after the settlement's announcement. "It's just remarkable."
Lacey said that while the settlement was good news, he would like to see Arpaio held accountable for his actions.
"This guy has just run wild and the county has continued to write checks for his abuses without curtailing the abuses," he said.
