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.

The Pardon of Joe Arpaio termed as injustice by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin

Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was pardoned by President Donald Trump recently. Two former newspapermen have released a detailed response his pardon. Arpaio was convicted for criminal contempt by a judge. It is believed that President Trump pardoned Arpaio since he was one of the early loyal supporters. He supported the claims made by President Donald Trump that President Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii.

An independent newspaper known as Phoenix New Times ran by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin published several stories about Joe Arpaio about ten years ago. Some of the stories covered by the newspaper included the tent city which he had created, concentration camp, and the death of inmates in his jail among many other unpleasant stories about him.

When Joe Arpaio had of these stories, he ordered for the arrest of Michael Lacey and his counterpart Jim Larkin, sending his deputies to the houses of the two newspapermen to have them arrested.

The deputies arrived at the houses of Lacey and Larkin at midnight, arrested them and hauled them to one of Arpaio prisons using unmarked vehicles.

Lacey and Larkin were released the following day after the county’s prosecutor refused to charge them with any offense and due to the public demand to have them released. Learn more about James Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/ and http://james-larkin.com/about/

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey sued the county because of these events. They successfully won the case, and the court awarded them $3.75 million.

They put the money into Frontera Fund where the money is being used to defend people whose rights have been violated throughout Arizona. Most of the people benefitting from this program are migrants and Hispanics.

Immediately after Donald Trump pardoning Arpaio, Michael Lacey released a statement, in his statement, Michael Lacey said that he was in full agreement with what Rex Tillerson said about Trump, that Trump was a complete idiot.

He said that the statement made by Rex could be proved by the fact that Donald Trump has pardoned the most corrupt person, Joe Arpaio.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin attended Arizona State University, during a period when students were protesting against the Vietnam War among other issues.

That was late 1960’s to early 1970’s. They dropped out from the university and started a free campus newspaper with Jim Larkin as the Chief Executive Officer and Michael Lacey as the executive editor. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

The company aimed to inform the public about the real course of the protests, something that Phoenix had blackened. Gradually, Phoenix New Times achieved a lot of success under the leadership of Michael Lacy and Jim Larkin.

They managed to build a nationwide independent newspaper under the Village Voice Media. The company grew and had 17 newspaper in big cities and large markets such as New York.

The company was sold to new ownership in 2013, known as Voice Media Group. Lacey and Larkin said that the pardon of Joe Arpaio is a miscarriage of justice and compared the relationship between Arpaio and Trump as marriage between two very corrupt people.

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.

A Synopsis of Cryptocurrency Market Performance with Jordan Lindsey

Cryptocurrencies continue to dominate investment headlines and online money making discussions among private investors.

There’s a very simple reason. In 2012, a single bitcoin was worth $15. In December of 2017, one bitcoin was worth nearly $20,000. Gains of that order of speed and magnitude just don’t happen with standard distribution frequency. It was a rapid rise, of a technology kick started by financial freedom seeking idealists and techno savvy individuals responding to an 8 page whitepaper written under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.

Things went great for several years.

But then several things happened beginning in December, 2017. The Chicago Board Options Exchange and its competitor the Chicago Mercantile Exchange both launched bitcoin futures during that month.

Against the high optimism of the bulls that helped to run the market from its $997 price on January 1st, 2017 to its $19,367 high on December 16th, professional investors and clearinghouses found themselves realizing the fulfillment of what they saw coming all along. The bull run stalled, contract volume became slim and then short momentum grew as the price per bitcoin was more than halved on February 1st, falling to $9052.

Fueled by confirmed fears about the vulnerability of the cryptocurrency to wide volatility price fluctuation, further bearish sentiment helped the price sink to the $5900 range on February 5th.

As an explanation for the turn of events, analysts have pointed to the newness of the markets and the need for them to mature. There was widespread sentiment among professional investors and analysts that the launch of futures in December, 2017 would provide that stability. What seems to have happened instead is that it burst a rapidly growing bubble and resulted in not only bitcoin’s decline but that of other alt coins as well.

Litecoin with a high of $321 on December 11th traded as low as $106 on February 6th. Ethereum was at $1321 on January 8th. It dropped to $571 on February 6th as well.

Ripple spiked from $0.23 on December 4th to $2.81 on January 1st, only to lose its earlier gains, trading at $0.60 early on February 6th.

Market volatility remains a critical factor in the short term outlook on the performance of bitcoin and other alt coins.

Louis Chenevert: the Visionary Leader

The CEO should be the company’s steward, leaving it better than he found it. These are words the current CEO of UTC, Gregory Hayes keeps reminding his employees. He says it is important that with every task employees carry out, they do it knowing it impacts not only to the company’s immediate aim which is making profit but also the company’s future. This is a lesson he learned from his predecessor; Louis Chenevert.

Louis Chenevert was named the CEO of UTC, United Technologies Corpporation, in 2008. During his reign, he saw the acquisition of the turbofan engine from Patt and Whitney which turned the company’s future for the better. This engine is currently used in over 70 aircrafts owned by 14 airlines. This engine not only changed UTC’s future, it also changed the airline industry. Reducing the fuel consumption of aircrafts by up to 16% and their emissions by 50%, the Turbofan engine they acquired has revolutionized the industry.

Louis Chenevert’s success in changing the industry did not begin when he was the CEO of UTC. It began when he invested in the design and development of the jet engine decades before his appointment. He gave 10 billion that went a long way in developing the engine. In doing this, he was following his desire to revolutionize the industry. And he succeeded. He also made the company a driving force in the county’s economy. Following their expansion, UTC created 5000 new positions and employed over 25000 new employees.

There really is no point in hopping to expand a company when the people you are working with remain stagnant. Louis Chenevert knew that for UTC to grow, the employees would have to grow themselves as well. As a result, he came up with an employee scholar program, this initiative helped several employees to further their education. As a result, when the time came for UTC to expand, they were ready for the expansion.

They say every strong building has a strong foundation. For UTC to go global, the person laying the foundation had to do a thorough work. Louis Chenevert’s vision helped lay this foundation. It has made UTC what we know it as today.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Help Minorities

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know what it takes to make sure they are helping people with different opportunities when it comes to the things they are doing. They also know there are various options they have that will give them the motivation they need to continue working toward a better future.

It is their way of providing people with the activist options they need and with the experiences they can use to make sure they are doing their best. While Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know what they are doing and while they know they are able to help people, they also know they have to protect themselves from different things. It is their way of making it easier on those who are minorities.

The men knew their column was good and it was helpful to people, but they wanted to be able to do so much more than that. They had many plans to help and that was part of how they were going to keep showing people what they could do. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/23/jim-larkin-michael-lacey-make-the-list-of-civil-rights-protectors/ and http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/immigration/2014/12/16/proceeds-arpaio-suit-fund-asu-journalism-chair/20480479/

They wanted everyone to realize they were taking advantage of their business and of their opportunities so they didn’t have to worry about the hardest parts of being activists. They have always wanted to remain as activists and that’s part of their idea of helping people out.

Thanks to Joe Arpaio, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to start their career as activists who were not the same as journalists. They chose to start a foundation where they could provide monetary, legal and other ways of help to minorities. While they didn’t want to be arrested, it came as a welcome opportunity for the men. They were arrested illegally, Arpaio had to pay them a settlement and they used that to start the Frontera Fund.

With the fund, they do not cater to one single group of minorities. Instead, they help out several different minority groups so they don’t have to worry about all the issues going on around them.

They also make sure they are giving people a chance to try their best no matter what is happening or what they’re doing. They want them to realize they can experience the best of everything and the best options they have while they are working with the Frontera Fund.

Even though Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are not lawyers, one of the things they provide through their foundation is the legal help. This is the type of help that will allow them to make sure they are doing their best and make sure they are doing things right for all the people who they work with.

It is their way of being a positive impact on the community and of making sure people understand exactly what they are doing to be helpful in different situations. For them, it goes back to the positive help they can have with others who are in the same situations as what they have been in while they were dealing with things in their past.
