Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: Protesting the Pardon of Joe Arpaio

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been one of the most successful journalists in the state of Arizona. They established the Phoenix New Times and the Front Page Confidential, among others. They are known for their assistance to the migrants who are coming from the south, helping them to get a stable job and process their documents to become a legal immigrant.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also head the Frontera Fund, which has more than $3.75 million in cash. The fund is used to support migrants who need financial assistance, and they are also using it to fund organizations that are aligned with their beliefs. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have experienced a lot of persecution from the authorities, and one that they would never forget was when Joe Arpaio arrested them.

Joe Arpaio is known for his moniker as the toughest sheriff in America. He gained notoriety after he became the county sheriff of Maricopa County in 1992, and he imposed harsh rules and regulations against the migrants and the illegal immigrants. Joe Arpaio and his men apprehended suspected illegal immigrants, and if they found out that the person they are questioning does not have any documents to show, they are being deported back to where they came from.

However, most of the people they arrested are taken first inside his very own tent city, which is a prison complex made for the criminals who are roaming around Phoenix. The media have described Tent City as a place of horror, and several human rights activists have called upon Joe Arpaio and told him to stop the operation of the tent city.

He never listened to his critics and continued his ways of dealing with the migrants, arresting anyone he pleases. Later on, he was apprehended by the county attorney’s office because of the mounting complaints against him. He was warned not to do any violation towards the rights of the migrants, but he seems to ignore the warnings and continued threatening the minority groups residing in his city.

He was later picked up by the authorities, and he was sent to jail. However, he kept on believing that he will be pardoned if Donald Trump becomes the president. He was delighted knowing that Donald Trump won, and as promised, he was later released inside his prison, and he is now considering a position in the US Senate.

Lacey and Larkin – the Aftermath

In the early 70s, Michael and Jim decided to offer Phoenix area readers an alternative to the surrounding media’s right-wing ultra-conservative reporting. They were among the students at Arizona State starting a free weekly alternative anti-war newspaper called the Phoenix New Times.

With Michael Lacey as the head reporter and Jim Larkin serving as business manager and selling advertising, the tabloid soon gained a reputation for extensive, informative, investigative in-depth reporting about public issues of the time.

In 2005, a U.S. Army Reserve Sergeant named Patrick Haab was driving along Interstate 8 in rural Arizona when he pulled into a public rest stop to take a break. While sitting at the rest stop, Sgt. Haab saw seven men leave a building and climb into an SUV. Believing them to be illegal aliens, Haab moved his car to prevent them from leaving, then approached the SUV on foot waving a pistol and ordering the occupants out of the SUV and onto the ground.

While holding the men at gunpoint, Haab called the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and reported that he was holding what he believed to be illegal immigrants until law enforcement could get there and arrest them.

Instead, Haab himself was arrested, and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio described Haab’s actions as both dangerous and illegal. Arpaio went on to say that Haab could not be sure that the men were in the country illegally and that civilians should never act as law enforcement.

Arpaio was shocked when all charges against Haab were dropped and public opinion became strongly anti-migrant. As a result, he courted voters by becoming strongly anti-immigrant, going so far as to arrest legal migrants and even American citizens of Hispanic descent. Lacey, Larkin, and the Phoenix New Times became, in Lacey’s words, “a constant thorn in Arpaio’s side.” They revealed that on a salary of $78,000 a year, Arpaio had purchased $700,000 worth of commercial property throughout Maricopa County

The Phoenix New Times exposed conditions in Arpaio’s jail, and the fence enclosed tent city he affectionately called his “concentration camp, including meals of green bologna and rotten fruit, and daily conditions including brutal beatings.

For years, Arpaio banned New Times’ reporters from his press conferences, ignored their requests for records under the Freedom of Information Act, and repeatedly threatened to arrest reporters. This came to a head during the night of October 18, 2007, when plainclothes detectives from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, driving SUVs with tinted windows and Mexican license plates placed them under arrest.

After the public criticisms that followed, Lacey and Larkin were released without charges being filed, and soon filed countersuits for false arrest for what they called “the trumped-up charges.” Maricopa County Commissioners voted to settle out of court for $3.7 million dollars.
