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.
