I absolutely love being an American. I am proud that I was born in the United States of America and that I still hold to the constitutional rights that we have been given by the founding fathers.
This is a wonderful country to be in where we have the freedom to speak our minds, where all races no matter what their background, can be equal and have equal opportunities to excel and succeed in life. This is the core of the American dream and it should be available to all. Read more: Jim Larkin | Angel.co and Jim Larkin | LinkedIn
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin both agree with me concerning these amazing rights that belong to American citizens. They also understand that this is what makes America great.
However, in their campaign to continue pushing for these rights, they have come across a man named Sheriff Joseph Arpaio. Sheriff Joe Arpaio does not believe these rights belong to everybody. He actually believes we should be keeping people out of the United States of America so that we can board these rights for ourselves.
Sheriff Joseph Arpaio has sought to do evil things to the Latinos and Hispanics in order to push them out of our country. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken it upon themselves to report on these evils so that Sheriff Joseph Arpaio may be stopped.
Michael and Jim use their media outlets from the Village Voice Media in order to inform the public about the acts that Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is committing. They recently broke the story on how he unlawfully deputized several citizens.
He gave them the authority to arrest illegal immigrants who did not have a work visa. The problem with this, he never taught these deputies how to make lawful arrest. These illegal deputies was randomly stop anybody they thought could be an illegal immigrant and would then take them to the jailhouse.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also uncovered and reported on how Sheriff Joseph Arpaio made sure that all these deputies had racial biases against the Hispanic community. In fact, that was the only thing that he taught these deputies.
They were not taught how to stop drunk drivers. They were not taught how to do a traffic stop. The only thing they were taught was how to arrest Hispanics and Latinos to bring them to the police station.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also reported how Sheriff Joseph Arpaio turned a blind eye while many Hispanic men were brutally beaten to death in his prison. In fact, he tried to cover up for the security guards who were guilty for doing this.
Sheriff Joseph Arpaio retaliated against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin with a spirit of revenge. He took an illegal warrant and tried to arrest and detain these two proud Americans for not handing over evidence against him.
From this a lawsuit would ensue where Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were awarded the monies needed to start their prestigious nonprofit the great Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
