Larkin and Lacey Fault Trumps Decision to Pardon Arpaio

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were the first to blow a whistle over the aggressive and illegal methods that Joe Arpaio was using to work in Maricopa County as its Sheriff. The two former Phoenix Times Newspaper journalists were keen on revealing the events that were unfolding within the county and in Arizona State.

They published many damning stories ranging from misappropriation of funds in the Sheriff’s office to the abuse of minority rights. The two journalists were not the only ones who had highlighted the increasing problem of minority treatment by the police. Other media outlets had also expressed similar concerns.

Joe was retired from his role as the Maricopa County Sheriff several years ago. He was issued with a court order but decided to defy it. President Trump recently came to Arpaio’s aid when he was about to be sentenced for the offense. It is that pardon that has infuriated the two defenders of minority and immigrant rights.

A Tough Sheriff, Or Just a Headstrong Bully

It is still a matter of public evaluation to decide where Joe Arpaio falls within the provisions of the American constitution. He was once referred to as the toughest Sheriff. However, events that unfolded, especially involving he and the two former Phoenix Times journalists seemed to disprove the description of merely being tough.

Joe was caught in the act when he tried to fix Larkin and Lacey for exposing the ills that were being done under his charge as the County Sheriff. He was increasingly criticized for overseeing a police brutality culture against immigrants and breaking the laws of the minorities that he arrested without clear cause.

He decided to extend his defiance despite the risk of breaking the law by arresting Larkin and Lacey and throwing them into jail for trumped-up charges. The case was thrown out and the two journalists sued him in turn. He was fined heavily.

He was ordered to pay the two journalists a sum of over $3.7 million. Larkin and Lacey had become increasingly concerned by the turn of events in Arizona. They decided to use the funds from the fine paid by Joe Arpaio to start the Frontera Fund.

The fund is aimed at helping to cushion the immigrants from being abused by the authorities. They offer a range of services including pro-bono representation for minorities and immigrants who cannot afford to pay for legal services to defend their rights.

Joe Shows Defiance

Despite numerous advice from lawyers and even magistrates, Joe Arpaio continued on the same trajectory of trampling on the rights of immigrants.

Judge Murray Snow, a District judge warned the Sheriff against holding suspects in custody on mere suspicion. He informed him that such action was infringing on the rights of the minorities and that it was breaking the constitution.

Mr. Arpaio never heeded the advice. His Tent City project was exposed in 2011. He was charged with violation of the rights of immigrants and Latinos. It is because of such a train of defiance that Larkin and Lacey are of the view that Joe did not deserve presidential pardon. He was an offender with defiance; just because he associated with the influential people in society.

Lacey and Larkin: Fighting Against Donald Trump

Everyone’s fighting against Donald Trump and his reign of stupidity. It’s like he can’t read even the most basic of emotions. Honestly, sometimes it seems like he can’t read at all. His advisors have probably given him dozens of memos and letters, detail exactly what he should do; but to him, it’s just a bunch of weird-looking symbols on a piece of paper.

There have been a lot of great movements happening lately, and Trump is deliberately trying to kill them. He seems determined to support everything bad about humanity. It’s actually kind of weird seeing all the stupid of America walking the streets.

Some of the stuff Trump does isn’t even offensive; it’s just confusing. Recently, Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio from conviction. Joe Arpaio is a horrible person who did horrible things, so it’s completely wrong to pardon; however, Trump doesn’t even have a real reason for pardoning Arpaio.

He’s randomly pulling names out of hat and seeing how made people will get. He’s testing America, but no one knows why or what he hopes to learn. No one understands why he let Arpaio go other than they’re both corrupt. He doesn’t even know Arpaio.

Arpaio is most known for his love of abusing Latinos. For over 20 years, he reigned as sheriff. Anytime he wasn’t mismanaging something or stealing funds, he was persecuting Latinos. Other being a white man with power, he didn’t have a real reason to be doing any of the things he did.

He was doing it so long; some people thought it would just go on like that forever. Anytime some did speak out or try to expose him, he used his authority to silence them. Ten years, Lacey and Larkin stood up to Arpaio and never folded.

Using Phoenix New Times, they exposed all of his dirty secrets. He tried to silence them, but they were only spurred on by his attempts. Eventually, he had them arrested so he could interrogate them personally. He only had one chance to break them, and he failed.

Once people found out he had them arrested, he was fired. Not only did he lose his job, he was also arrested and charged with criminal contempt. Years earlier, he’d gotten in trouble for racial profiling. By continuing his systematic persecution, he disobeyed orders from a federal judge.

Larkin and Lacey’s Frontera Fund’s History

A lot of times, successful people create charitable funds as a tax write off, or they just want attention. Usually, it’s because they got caught doing something terrible, and they want people to think they’re great people on the inside. Occasionally, some of them actually care about the cause and want to help.

Those are the guys that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are. They didn’t create the Frontera Fund for attention or to cover something up. They started it because they genuinely believe in supporting migrant rights and fighting against corruption, harassment, and abuse.

Both Larkin and Lacey come from humble backgrounds; neither of them even graduated from college. They both attended Arizona State University in the late 60s and dropped out in the early 70s. Michael Lacey grew up in New Jersey and moved to Arizona to attend college. Both their lives changed as a consequence of challenging the conservative viewpoints of the Arizona-majority.

The first newspaper they created, Phoenix New Times, started as a weekly campus paper. It became so popular with those tired of the ultra-conservative crap that most of the media told that their campus paper became a symbol of investigative reporting in the Phoenix area.

No event made New Times a symbol of investigative reporting like their battle with Sheriff Arpaio. Sheriff Arpaio was written off by most of Arizona’s media. To a lot of people, he was just a man trying to do a tough job. That was not even remotely the case.

Phoenix New Times discovered that Arpaio had a genuine hatred of Latinos. He fostered much of the anti-Mexican fear-mongering throughout Arizona. He also caused the deaths of several jail inmates with his lack of management skills and sub par health conditions he kept his jails in.

After so many articles came out about his activities, Sheriff Arpaio sent his top deputies, a group of armed officers, to arrest Lacey and Larkin. He used fake subpoenas to try to force the duo to give up the names of their writers, editors, and readers. He also wanted all notes and evidence they had about him.

Immediately following national outcry, Lacey and Larkin were released. The most shocking part of the event was revealed during the trial: Sheriff Arpaio had a network of dirty associates helping him abuse his power.
