Was President Trump justified to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio?

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of criminal contempt for disobeying a court order requiring him to stop profiling suspected undocumented immigrants without reasonable suspicion. President Trump just pardoned Arpaio, and many say the right-wing hero deserved it—he's 85 years old, after all. But critics say Trump pardoning Arpaio is "granting the fantasy of every rogue police officer, Nazi sympathizer, Klansman, alt-right and white-supremacist ideologue in the nation." What do you think?

Here's the statement from the White House announcing Arpaio's pardon.

Arpaio does not deserve a pardon because what he did was unconscionable and wrong. It was a blatant abuse of power. He systematically harassed Latinos and failed to protect them from crime. This man does not deserve a pardon. Arpaio deserves to go to jail. 

The federal investigators found that a "wall of distrust" between a harassed Latino community and the sheriff's department hampered police investigations. Hundreds of sexual assault and child molestation cases went unsolved where many of the victims appeared to be Latino.
Despite all this, Trump said of Arpaio: “He has protected people from crimes and saved lives. He doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”
In fact, just the opposite is true. Latinos taken into custody were abused, and hundreds of crimes, many against children, were unsolved. This is the kind of person worthy of a pardon?
