There are very few people that I know on this Earth that I would immediately say are clearly evil. Unfortunately, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the Maricopa County is one of them. I thank God for the fact that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have the courage to stand up against this wretched man on a daily basis.
If it was not for them reporting the various incidents that “America’s Toughest Sheriff” was guilty of, then we would never be able to find justice.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have made it their life’s work to continually fight the evil that comes from the actions of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
He may call himself the toughest sheriff here in the United States, but Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know that what he calls tough is really a cover-up for viciousness.

Through the news outlet Phoenix News Times, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin recently reported on Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegally bursting into the home of a Latino family and burning it to the ground with the family’s pets inside.
It all began when Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Police Department received an anonymous tip via a phone call that claimed the home was being used to transport drugs for a local gang. Sheriff Joe Arpaio felt the tip was legitimate and used it as a reason to illegally enter the home.
After discovering there were no drugs present, Sheriff Joe Arpaio set fire to the home for reasons that only he knows.
Another evil that the Phoenix News Times had a report on was the time when Sheriff Joe Arpaio allowed a pregnant woman’s child to die. The woman was of Hispanic heritage and had been detained when her husband was arrested while awaiting day work.
She told them that she had been on her way to see the doctor to get her abdominal pain examined, but the Sheriff ignored her concerns. Several hours later, the baby died due to a late third-trimester miscarriage.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are not ones to sit by while such evil is committed right before their eyes. They took the war to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and revealed his atrocities to the world. When Sheriff Joe Arpaio realized that the evidence was concrete against him, he decided he would find a way to silence the two men.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio rounded up those loyal to him, and he illegally entered the different homes of these two men and arrested them when they failed to surrender their evidence against him.
This evil, illegal detention would backfire on Sheriff Joe Arpaio when it made national news. The pressure put on the Sheriff became so great that he was forced to let the men go.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would settle with the Maricopa County Police Department for $3.75 million. They would use this money as starting capital for the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
This Fund exists to continue reversing the many evils that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is committing on Hispanics.
