I am proud that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have dedicated their time to take the battle to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and expose all the evil crimes that he is guilty of committing. The vindictiveness and vengeful spirit of Sheriff Joe Arpaio can be detailed in a book as big as the Encyclopedia Britannica.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are not able to oppose Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the legal sense since neither of them are lawyers. They also cannot fight him in a lobbyist sense since neither of them are politicians. However, since they own several publications that span the country, they can use these to reveal how evil Sheriff Joe Arpaio is.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin fight daily to reveal the vast amounts of crimes the Sheriff Joe Arpaio is committing. He may call himself America’s Toughest Sheriff, but they know that in reality, he is the most brutal and unforgiving Sheriff that America has ever seen.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio shows his crooked heart by how awful he treats the inmates in his prison system. It is widely known that Sheriff Joe Arpaio humiliates new inmates by dressing them in ladies underwear. He does this because he actually wants the older inmates to treat these younger inmates as if they were girls and possibly even rape them in the prison cells.
Lacey and Jim also published in their newspapers the awful conditions that can be seen in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jail cells. They showed how the security guards would routinely spread fecal matter on the walls and floors in order to shame the inmates. They also showed how the cafeteria would serve food beyond the expiration date which had moldy meat and rotten fruit.
They also showed in their newspapers how Sheriff Joe Arpaio was proud to run his own personal concentration camp. This concentration camp is known as Tent City. This Arizona jail will often rise to 135°F in the middle of the summer. Prisoners will often go into heatstroke from dehydration since they are denied water.
After they have sweated it out outside, they are brought in to be beaten by the security guards so that they are taught a lesson. We also have reports of mothers in labor being chained to their beds and denied the right to see a physician.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also showed in their newspapers how Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his jail system are responsible for various wrongful deaths. They show how many people were denied their medications and died as a result.
They showed how Hispanics were chained and suffocated. They even showed how there is an exponential rise in Hispanic suicides by hanging ever since Sheriff Joe Arpaio came onto the scene.
The report that would do in Sheriff Joe Arpaio was the report of him breaking the Constitution. Sheriff Joe Arpaio created a personal Army by deputizing citizens to racially profile Hispanics and Latinos. This violated the rights of Americans.
