Evil and tyranny is something that I can never support. If I see evil on the streets or others oppressing a race I must take a stand against it with all the power and all the influence that I have.
Forasmuch as I hate evil in any form it is the most dangerous when it is inside the hands of those in power. Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is the cruel man who as far too much power for his vindictive and hateful spirit.
With the power in his hands, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio was able to work the Maricopa County Police Department into a racial frenzy. Over a time span of three years, he relinquished all officers who refused to engage in the illegal practice of racial profiling. Then, to replace them with officers who were willing. He also did this in the Maricopa County jails and prisons systems.
Once the Police Department was caught up in the racial frenzy the Hispanic community felt attacked and hated. The police would often allow somebody of white skin color and even a black skin color to get away with crimes just so that they could punish Hispanics with that incident.

In addition to this, Hispanics were systematically persecuted in the prison system. There are over 400 times the amount of death and brutal beatings and gang wars which attacked the Hispanic community in Sheriff Joseph Arpaio’s prisons than any other in America. These extreme numbers cry out for us to take a stand against this man.
These stories break my heart as a good Christian. My God the man’s that I put a stop to what Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is doing. Luckily, I am not the only one who seeking justice in this matter. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin of the village Voice Media, have utilized all their publication’s power in order to put Sheriff Joseph Arpaio behind bars.
In addition to the stories I have already told, they have detailed how Sheriff Joseph Arpaio routinely acts as the judge and the jury to enact revenge on those he believes are guilty even if he has no proof.
As Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin routinely reported on these events, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio became increasingly angry. It got to the point that he felt he should break the law in order to violate the First Amendment right to the freedom of speech. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia
He violated their freedom of speech by using an illegal warrant to illegally arrest them.
Under arrest he offered to cut them a deal. If they would agree to destroy any evidence they had of his criminal activity he would allow them to go free. This climaxed in a passionate court battle where Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would end up receiving $3.75 million as a settlement.
This money was used to expand the Village Voice Media and begin the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. Together, these organizations seek to make America more aware of the misdeeds to Hispanics from Americans.
