Enduring The Misdeeds of The Sheriff Made Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Stronger

The world is only as good as we make it, our acts both good and bad often translate into the cumulative outcome. The more acts of goodness that we perform, the better the chances that the world will become a just place to live in for future generations.

These days, people from various walks of life are standing together to fight against injustice done against them and others. Such is the tale of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, two ordinary people who took on a mammoth task for others suffering due to injustice inflicted upon them.

A decade ago, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, two media representatives, created a cover story for Phoenix New Times publication, which exposed the true intentions of Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County.

This act of reporting factual news about misdeeds done by the sheriff not only against immigrants but also against anybody who stood up against him led to Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey being illegally harassed, arrested and detained by the sheriff.

The people in the entire nation stood up for Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey when their arrest made the headlines, and this directly resulted in the acquittal of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. All the charges were dropped as well, as these allegations were false and made without a probable cause that could stand up in the courtroom.

Soon after being let go, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey filed a case against the Maricopa County, which they won in the form of a settlement in 2013. The funds received by these two media executives was a total of $3.7 Million, which was directly used to fund the Frontera Foundation.

Along with the efforts of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the Frontera foundation is geared to undo the injustice done by various people like the sheriff who ignored the first amendment and civil rights of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

The Frontera foundation was also created to assist the Hispanic community living in Arizona to get justice against acts including racial profiling, segregation, and discrimination.

Due to the seeds of evil that were sowed by Joe Arpaio over his lifetime, he reaped an outcome of a case being lodged against him. This case was known as Melendres v. Arpaio lawsuit, which directly resulted in him not being re-elected as the sheriff of Maricopa County for the next term.

While most people expected this man to come tumbling down as he was facing an extended prison sentence, the tides shifted in favour of Joe Arpaio which led to him getting a presidential pardon from President Donald Trump as they were old allies.

While the world was disheartened by this new development, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey continued their fight against people like Joe Arpaio through the Frontera foundation. In fact, they emerged from this disaster, as a force much stronger and dedicated than before.

Many other funds and organizations such as DACA have joined hands with Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, to ensure a brighter future for immigrants and others who need assistance in fighting for their human rights.
