Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken a stand against one who is known as America’s Toughest Sheriff. This man, whose real name is Sheriff Joe Arpaio and works for the Maricopa County, has committed atrocities against his fellow man.
It was Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who discovered these horrors and vowed that they would make them known. They did this by publishing their findings in the Phoenix New Times And The Village Voice media. What follows are the atrocities they discovered.
The first atrocity was that Sheriff Joe Arpaio replaced his old police officers with new officers who were known as being racially biased toward Latinos. The second atrocity was that he encouraged those racist police officers to beginning profiling racially and looking for illegal immigrants.
The third atrocity was Arpaio providing rewards for any police officer who was able to convict an illegal immigrant. The 4th was that he purposefully create jail cells to punish the Latinos for coming to this country. When Michael Lacey and Larkin discovered these things, they had to make them known.

Needless to say, when the news hit the stands a bunch of pressure came down on Sheriff Arpaio. In his anger, he went to those same racist police officers he hired and asked them if they would support him and gaining revenge against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Of course, these morally depraved individuals said yes.
Sheriff Arpaio would use his connections to procure an illegal warrant to enter the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Once he was inside, he threatened that if they did not give him the evidence that they had, he would haul them off to jail. When they refused to give in, he made good on his threat. However, Sheriff Arpaio’s plan would backfire.
The story broke that a fascist man in Maricopa County by the name of Joe Arpaio had illegally detained two citizens without honoring their rights. Once this news broke, pressure forced Sheriff Arpaio to let them go free.
In the end, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would sue the Maricopa County and win millions in their settlement. They used this money to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
