Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are heroes that all of us should honor. This is because they have taken a stand for their fellow man and are protecting the Hispanic community from Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a wretched and disgusting man who has committed evil atrocities upon the Latino race and deserves to be jailed and possibly even executed. I am glad that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are exposing his evils so that he can one-day face justice either here on this Earth or maybe even in the afterlife.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have discovered evidence of various evil deeds that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been doing. Some of those deeds are things such as laundering money so that he can pay police officers bonuses for bringing in illegal immigrants, intentionally staffing the police force with people who are known to be racially biased against Hispanics, and holding “round ‘em up parties” where the police go out for an afternoon and specifically arrest only Hispanics. These evils, however, pale in comparison with some of the other atrocities he has done.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio burned down a home of a Hispanic family simply because he chose the wrong home to raid. Sheriff Joe Arpaio had received a tip by telephone that this family had been moving drugs for a local gang. Without taking the time to even verify this, Sheriff Joe Arpaio ordered a raid on the home. When it turned out that the tip was wrong Sheriff Joe Arpaio wanted to make it look like the family resisted.

He ordered four holes to be smashed into the walls of the home, so that look like the homeowners put up a fight. Unfortunately, one officer smacked an electrical outlet which caused the fire to rage throughout the home. Rather than stopping it, Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested the family so that they cannot call the fire department.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio also indirectly murdered a child in the womb of its mother. A Latino woman had been detained since she was hanging out with other illegal Hispanics. At the time of her arrest, she had been on her way to see the doctor regarding pains in her abdomen. She reported this to the police officers, and they did nothing about it. Because she was not able to see her physician, the child died a premature death that could have been avoided.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would use their power in the world of media to report these stories through the Phoenix News Times. Sheriff Arpaio was not one to sit by while somebody exposed his evils, so he raided the homes of these two men.
Sheriff Arpaio would illegally detain these men, but it would blow up right in his face. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin one $3.75 million in a lawsuit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his police department. This was the starting capital for the Lacey Larkin Frontera fund which opposes Arpaio’s activities each day.
