Very rarely do I turn on the news and see somebody who is so evil that I wish they would get in a car accident and die. It is not a good feeling to know that somebody is out there committing acts of evil against their fellow man and they are not receiving the justice they deserve.
That is how I felt when President Donald Trump gave a legal pardon to the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I do, however, thank the good powers that be for sending Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who use the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund to stop and reverse the evils that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is so fond of committing.
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund all started when Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin experienced firsthand how evil Sheriff Joe Arpaio could be.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were using their media corporation Village Voice Media to report on the various atrocities that Sheriff Joe Arpaio was committing.
In one of the reports, they discussed how Sheriff Joe Arpaio raided a home of a Hispanic couple and in the chaos that ensued ended up burning the thing to the ground. It all started when he received a tip over the telephone.
The normal procedure would be to verify that this tip was accurate and have some sort of evidence to sustain it. Unfortunately, Sheriff Joe Arpaio believed that he just had to go on his instincts and he ordered the raid team to raid to the home.

The raid team found no evidence that drugs were present in the home as the tip said. Sheriff Joe Arpaio did not want it to look like he stormed into the home of an innocent family. He ordered the raid team on location to begin putting holes in the wall so that it would look like this innocent family put up a struggle.
While the raid team was putting holes in the wall, one of them accidentally struck the main electrical current and caused the house to burn down.
To add insult to injury, the raid team arrested the family and left them in the vehicles of the SWAT team so that they could not call the fire department.
In another report, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would discuss the time when Sheriff Joe Arpaio refused to give medical attention to an eight-month pregnant woman, and this negligence would result in the death of the unborn baby.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio was none too pleased when he heard these reports and the evidence that Lacey and Larkin had against him.
He would continue his evil streak by personally bringing his entourage of thugs with him and breaking into the two homes of these men in the middle of the night. He demanded they hand over all evidence, and they refused. This resulted in an illegal detention.
This illegal act by Sheriff Joe Arpaio would end up as a $3.75 million settlement between Lacey, Larkin, and the Maricopa County.
