How Larkin and Lacey Helped To Expose Joe Arpaio

There have been quite a few controversial presidential pardons over the years but the most recent is that of Joe Arpaio, the scumbag sheriff notorious for committing heinous crimes against humanity. This is the story of how his fiendish antics were finally brought to light.

About ten years ago, Arapaio was still the sheriff of Maricopa County who was constantly irked by the spotlight the media had shined on him. He was particularly infuriated with two people in particular.

Michael Lacey is the executive editor of Village Voice Media newspaper and Jim Larkin is the CEO. The two of them would unwittingly became Arpaio’s next target.

At the time, Village Voice Media was publishing multiples articles and stories exposing Arpaio for the corrupt scumbag he is. However, the two were completely unaware of the fact that they were currently the subject of a grand jury investigation.

This eventually led to them getting arrested. However, they were released shortly thereafter and promptly filed a lawsuit against Arpaio for wrongful imprisonment in which they exposed even more of his corrupt activities and malpractices.

The case was eventually settled out of court with the plaintiffs being awarded $3.7 million. This was the beginning of the downfall for the criminal known as Joe Arpaio.

The scandal surrounding the lawsuit resulted in Arpaio losing the next election for Sheriff which would have been his seventh term. Then he incurred more legal trouble after being charged with contempt in connection with the Melendres lawsuit.

It was only by worming his way into the good graces of Donald Trump that he was able to receive a presidential pardon. Trump was inclined to pardon Arpaio due to his endorsing him during his campaign as well as the need he felt to appease those idiots that Trump calls his base.

Born to a construction worker, Michael Lacey grew up in the late 60’s in Newark, New Jersey. He eventually matriculated at Arizona State but dropped out after attempting to fight back against the conservative rhetoric being spread throughout the campus.

Eventually, he met Jim Larkin with whom he would become business partners and they created a newspaper called New Times in which they tackled the most prominent political and social issues facing the nation.

In 1983, they purchased Westword, a news and arts paper located in Denver and this would eventually lead to their employment at the Village Voice.

Of course, Arpaio is not out of the woods just yet. Due to his racist views and policies, many human rights and activist organizations have risen up over the years in an attempt to fight back against his racist and hateful rhetoric.

These groups are especially adamant about protecting the Latino community that Arpaio consistently tried to oppress every chance he got and these groups have made progress. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Twitter

In 2017, he was charged with criminal contempt which could lead to him serving up to six months in prison. Hopefully, with this new lawsuit, he’ll finally be forced to face the music and receive the lengthy jail sentence he so richly deserves.

What Lark and Lacey Say regarding Trump’s Pardon of Arpaio

The names Larkin and Lacey may sound like two lawyers, but these men write for the Phoenix New Times. In October of 2017 these two men were writing about the pardon of Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, by judge Susan R. Bolton. The Maricopa County judge followed the lead on this pardon, via the pardon of Donald Trump.  Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

Arpaio’s crime was labeled as a racial profiling lawsuit, leaving residents of Maricopa County up in arms. The actual crime was deemed as criminal contempt for ignoring the order of a federal judge.

What was the real issue behind this case? Arpaio had arrested the owners of the Phoenix New Times newspaper, Michael Lacy and Jim Larkin. The bitterness was evident behind the case, as the newspaper often referred to what the owners believed were scandals involving Arpaio.

Arpaio had served as the Sheriff of Maricopa County for 24 years, but Lacey was determined to offer up what he believed was a true rendering of Arpaio as a person and as a sheriff.

While many of the comments made were on the character and reaction to Donald Trump, Lacey references both of them, stating that they are similar in their personalities. Michael Lacey consistent refers to them as corrupt individuals, mentioning the way in which Arpaio worked during his time as the sheriff there.

The firing back time and again by Lacey includes mention of the jail conditions, as well as an area that Lacey refers to as the “tent city”. He said that Arpaio often referred to this area as his, “concentration camp.”

Additionally, he refers to mutilated bodies and corpses that were taken from the jail over time. There were a number of incidences listed including, deaths by beating, suicides by inmates, and what he says was misappropriation of funds for the jail there, totaling more than $100 million dollars.

Lacey goes on to say that in addition to all of this, Arpaio was not tending to the most important cases as he should have. He mentions first and foremost regarding these cases, that there were numerous sex crime cases involving children, and yet there was little proof of an appropriate investigation of the cases.

Last but not least, Lacey goes on to mention the treatment of Latinos, earmarked by the case that would serve as the platform for the racial profiling; the case of Melendres v. Arpaio.

Despite the fact that Trump granted this pardon to Arpaio, many believed that Arpaio would still have gone free. Lacey never discusses why, but he does suggest that the justice system is flawed. Although many believe this to be true, there is no one right answer for those who are seeking solutions in this case or in others.

Lacey refers to Arpaio’s career as “a stunning trail of evil”, and urges individuals to review his record for further insight.
