I have no idea how President Donald Trump could pardon such an evil man as Sheriff Joe Arpaio. When I listen to the reports that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have given to the Phoenix News Times, I shudder to think that this man is not only back on the streets, but also has power once again.
While I am powerless to do anything to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, I am glad that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are on the task of stopping this evil man.
There are many atrocities that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have reported on. These atrocities include staffing the police department with those who are biased against Hispanics, giving financial bonuses to those who bring in any illegal immigrants and also failing to clean the disease-ridden jail cells that Joseph Arpaio is so fond of throwing Hispanics in.
The two men have also reported on the various controversial deaths that have happened on Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s watch. Many Hispanics have mysteriously died in the jail system of the Maricopa County.
Though the official report says that the commit suicide, several coroners state that these suicides had to have outside help. That is important to note when you consider that these inmates only had contact with the guards.
Lacey and Larkin would also report on the time that Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegally raided a home that he believed to be a drug cache only to discover it was the home of an innocent family.
Rather than letting the news get out that he made such a mistake, his men began to batter the walls to make it look like the family resisted. During that bashing, the electrical sockets were hit, and a fire erupted in the walls.
The family had to stand in the yard and watch as their home burned to the ground. Sheriff Joe Arpaio would not even let them call the fire department.
Another report that Lacey and Larkin would give was the time when a pregnant woman lost her baby because Sheriff Joe Arpaio denied her medical attention. The Hispanic woman was visiting with some friends who were illegal immigrants.
While there, the police raided the trailer and hauled everyone off to jail. After she was processed through the system and put into a cell, she notified the security guards that she had been on her way to see the doctor because there is pain in the abdomen. However, they did not listen to her. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/
She requested to see a physician, but they denied her that right because they said she was an illegal immigrant. Underneath Arizona law, immigrants are not entitled to medical care once they are in prison.
The sad part concerning that is that the Hispanic woman was a legal resident of the United States. Unfortunately, because she failed to see a doctor, her baby died.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund so that they could daily battle Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
