Lacey and Larking are the American Heroes

Everyone should be respectful of those who decide to take a stand against the evils they find in this world. When we as humankind stand as one against the atrocities on this earth we are in the running to win the war of tyranny that is upon us for good. Two men who are like myself that dare to stand for what they believe in are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Lacey and Jim have bravely stood against “America’s Toughest Sheriff” in Maricopa County, Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Arpaio has given himself this title because he draws a very firm line concerning immigration policy within the state of Arizona.

Many people think it is good that he takes such a strong stance. However, when you look at his actions, you need to ask yourself if we are dealing with a wicked and evil man. Personally, I believe we are. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

Sheriff Joe Arpaio made headlines after he illegally burst into the home of a Hispanic family because he received an anonymous tip that they were working as a weapons and drug cache. As his SWAT team was storming the house, they realized that the tip was a phony and there were no weapons or drugs here.

Rather than apologizing to the family and moving on, Sheriff Joe Arpaio found a way to light the house on fire and let everything they had accumulated burnt to the ground. It is of interest that these people were legal United States citizens.

Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is also responsible for the death of a pregnant woman’s child. A Latino woman was brought to one of his jail cells in the Maricopa County. After being there for a few hours, she began complaining of abdominal pain and bleeding. Sheriff Joe Arpaio said she was only trying to get out of the jail cell and kept her there.

It turns out that there was hemorrhaging in the uterus and because she could not get medical attention she lost the baby. In perhaps one of the darkest moments of Arpaio’s life, he denied her the right to watch the funeral of her child.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have made it their life’s mission to report on the evils that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is committing. Once they reported on the burning down of the Hispanic family’s home and the loss of the pregnant woman’s child, Sheriff Joe Arpaio decided it would be best to remove them from the picture.

Sheriff Arpaio would illegally burst into the home of these two men with his thug entourage in tow. He would illegally detain Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin for refusing to hand over evidence incriminating him of these crimes.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would win a lawsuit due to this illegal detention. After President Donald Trump pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio, they decided to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund as a way of turning around the various evils of Arpaio.
