There are very few people I look at in the United States of America and think that they are vile human beings that need to leave this country. There are even fewer people who hold a position of power that I see as disgusting human beings that are dangerous to the rest of us.
Unfortunately, one such man that I believe is evil and atrocious is Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the Maricopa County. I am sad to see that he not only had power as a Sheriff but now he is considering a run for the Arizona State Senate. This news must grieve Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin deeply.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the co-founders of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. Together they work to stop the evil crimes that Joe Arpaio commits on a daily basis and reverse the damage that he has inflicted upon innocent lives.
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was born after Sheriff Joe Arpaio inflicted an illegal and evil crime upon Michael and Jim.
It all began when Lacey and Larkin reported on several criminal activities that Sheriff Joe Arpaio was involved in. They discovered that Sheriff Joe Arpaio had combed through the Maricopa Police Department and fired all the police officers who were not racially biased against Latino families. He then replaced them with officers who were.
To make matters worse, he even created a monetary system where he would give financial bonuses to officers at the end of the week depending on how many illegal immigrants they detained between Sunday and Saturday.
This illegal activity was reported on by Lacey and Larkin through their media outlet Village Voice Media. Articles were picked up by the Phoenix News Times and the citizens of Arizona were aghast at seeing what Sheriff Arpaio was doing.
Joe Arpaio then secured an illegal warrant for the arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. He would storm into their homes in the middle of the night and use the SWAT teams to threaten them. He stated that if they did not hand over the evidence they had against him that he would lock them up for the rest of time.
This illegal detention would ultimately result in Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin receiving a $3.75 million settlement from the Maricopa County which they would end up using to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
