Lacey and Larkin: A World Without Rights

It’s important to have organizations fighting for the rights of those who can’t defend themselves. It’s also important to take down anyone violating those helpless people.

In 2013, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin won their court case against Maricopa County, effectively accomplishing both goals at once. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey

For many years, their lawsuit battled the county in United States Court of Appeals. In 2007, the two media executives were arrested and wrongfully jailed by a vengeful sheriff. They’ve since won their case and were awarded a $3.75 million settlement, which they used to create the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

The fund provides financial assistance to Arizona-based groups that advocate for migrant rights. The fund also supports other groups, but migrant rights are a big issue for Lacey and Larkin. For much of their time in Arizona, they’ve noticed countless instances of Latinos being abused.

The battle with Sheriff Arpaio started with them investigated the abuse of Latinos at the hands of Arpaio. For most people, Sheriff Arpaio was just doing a tough job, but for Lacey and Larkin, they saw through his charade. Thanks to their determination, Sheriff Arpaio stopped abusing random Latinos and started abusing them.

Now, Arpaio says it wasn’t abuse, and he was just doing his job. According to the stories published by Phoenix New Times, Sheriff Arpaio is a horrible person. There are numerous accounts of financial irregularities and blatant abuse. It’s clear that Arpaio has no sympathy for local Latinos and enjoys causing them grief.

Outraged by their articles, Sheriff Arpaio sent an armed unit of deputies to arrest Lacey and Larkin in the middle of the night. On October 18, 2007, both media executives were forcibly removed from their homes and pushed into two separate unmarked SUVs. They were then booked into separate jails.

Fortunately, Sheriff Arpaio didn’t get away with his breathtaking assault on the Constitution. In fact, his calling his actions an assault on the Constitution is putting mildly. He crossed so many lines, it’s a miracle that he wasn’t immediately arrested and imprisoned the moment the nation found out about he’d done.

He wanted to raid Phoenix New Time’s offices and take every note and piece of evidence they had against him. He even tried to force Lacey and Larkin to give up the names of their employees and their readers.
