Sheriff Arpaio Needs to be Executed
True heroes are the ones who take a strong stand against tyranny and evil no matter what the consequences may be. It is when these heroes stand in such a strong manner that the tide of evil may be repelled and goodness may wash over the earth yet again.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken such a stand against the evils being committed against the Hispanic community in Maricopa County Arizona.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have stood against Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and his evils for the past few years. Though he calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff” he really should be looking at himself as America’s most racist Sheriff. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Village Voice Media | Wikipedia
Joe Arpaio refers to himself as a tough Sheriff because of the tough stance he has on immigration reform in Arizona.
While many Americans look at immigration reform with a positive light, I think all of us can agree that there are moral ways to go about this and there are immoral ways to go about this. Unfortunately, Joe Arpaio has taken the most immoral ways to do this.
Michael and Jim have reported many incidences of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s evil through their media outlet Phoenix New Times.
One incident that was recently reported was the time when Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegally broke into the home of a Hispanic family and set it on fire needlessly.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio received a tip that the home may be a weapons and drugs cache. Together with the raid team, Sheriff Joe Arpaio burst it into the home during the time of dinner and searched the house from top to bottom. When he was unable to find any evidence of drugs or weapons, he ordered the raid team to begin busting down the walls.
There was no need to do this since drug dogs detected nothing in the walls. Several people on the scene reported that Sheriff Joe Arpaio intended on creating a fire at this house. That is exactly what happened, and this family’s home burned to the ground.
Another incident that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin had to report was the time when Sheriff Joe Arpaio allowed an unborn child to die in front of him. A Latino woman had been detained by the police and processed through the Maricopa County jail system. After a day of being in prison, she reported having abdominal pain.
This was concerning since she was eight months pregnant and could not feel the baby. Sheriff Joe Arpaio ordered her to remain in her cell, and no doctor was called. Because of this negligence, that baby died.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to notify the world of these evils. In response, Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegally arrested them and detained them.
This illegal detention would climax in a $3.75 million settlement between Michael Lacey, Jim Larkin, and the Maricopa County Police Department. This money started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund which still fights Arpaio on a daily basis.
