Phoenix (AP) — Civil rights lawyers are seeking 2,000 unprocessed internal affairs investigations, each taking an average of 500 days, for contempt of court against Metro Phoenix sheriffs.

Sheriff Paul Penzone is the second Maricopa County Sheriff accused of violating a racial profiling case in which a judge ordered a highly critical review of the authorities’ internal affairs.

Penzone’s predecessor Joe Arpaio was found to be despised for ignoring 2011 orders in the profiling case, but his criminal contempt was convicted by then-President Donald Trump. I was pardoned. Penzone’s office refused to comment on the request for insult.
