Larkin and Lacey Weigh in Or Arpaio Pardon

President Donald Trump’s decision late last year to pardon Arizona Sherriff Joe Arpaio drew strong reactions from many people, including Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Lacey and Larkin, one time co-owners of the Phoenix New Times, were very outspoken and critical of the former Sheriff. Through Arpaio’s six terms as sheriff, the New Times documented many of the questionable actions and dubious arrests made.

This prompted Arapaio to have Larkin and Lacey themselves arrested for less than valid reasons in 2007.

In addition to these issues, there were many scandals that followed Arpaio as he continued his career. Some of the most controversial issues included repeated targeting of Latinos, inhumane conditions in jails, cases botched due to improper handling, the beating death of inmates in custody and millions of dollars in funding designated for jail management going missing.

These issues lead to Arapaio eventually being convicted of criminal contempt, and while some people were looking forward to seeing him serve a jail sentence, others felt sure that his case would never make it that far.

While he could have served up to six months in jail, Arapaio’s support of Trump lead to him be -pardoned without having to enter prison. Now 85 and having failed at his last bid to be re-elected as sheriff, Arpaio is likely to live the rest of his days in private.

It is a quiet end to what was a long career in the public eye. Arpaio was first elected in the early 1990s and from the start claimed to be the toughest sheriff in the United States.

He engaged in unorthodox tactics such as feeding inmates in his prisons rotting food and opening “Tent City”, an outdoor jail where inmates were forced to live in the heat.

However, none of his actions were found to be illegal until his 2007 campaign to target Latinos. Arpaio and his deputies continued this behavior until he was eventually sued and in 2013 it was found that the behavior was unlawful and considered racial profiling. Arpaio was eventually found to be in contempt for failing to stop this behavior.

Throughout his career, Larkin and Lacey worked to report all of the offenses committed as they happened. This latest twist in the story does not surprise either man, who saw the Sheriff as a talented and calculating politician. Arapaio’s early support of Trump’s campaign for president is one of the likely reasons he was pardoned.

Lacey and Larkin: Speak out against the decision to pardon Arpaio by Trump

Jim Lacey and Michael Larkin are prominent reporters that have created steadfast results in numerous areas of civil liberties in Arizona. They have established the Frontera Fund with contributions from a law suit that followed their detainment from Joe Arpaio. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://james-larkin.com/press/ and https://michael-lacey.com/

The formidable sheriff had been in charge of Maricopa County for more than twenty years. This led to some of the most difficult circumstances for migrant workers and immigrants alike.

He was known for his rampant discrimination as well as interest in deportation multiple businesses that were thought to employ undocumented individuals were the particular target of Joe Arpaio’s private police force. This led to some oft he most detestable actions where people were held captive and did not receive fair trial or treatment.

He was known to misuse power, but is not required to face the consequences because of the recent decision of Donald Trump. Trump has been an important and influential person in light of Arpaio case.

Numerous allegations were provided against him. However the consequences were removed due to the presidential pardon. Many say that this is not just and that greater attention to the violation of law need to follow.

Some of the problems that are seen in this have to do with corruption. Donald Trump was supported by Arpaio to a great degree based on the way that he received the GOP nomination.

By supporting him in early years it is evident that there was a budding relationship between the two for more than a year. Arpaio was even a significant contributor to the Trump campaign. Nevertheless, the results are detestable as Arpaio had pending allegations and law suits on multiple accounts.

Since there were so many different ways that civil liberties were impeded by Arpaio, residents of Maricopa County are dismayed that the cases against him have been forgiven. Lacey and Larkin too have demonstrated that there are considerable adversities created by Arpaio. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

Overall the way that Arpaio has acted has resulted in improper treatment of thousands of people, death as well as illness and situations that many will never recover from.

Even though he has been an important part of the way that civil liberties are undermined in recent year, the charges are no longer pending on him and its possible that he won’t have to go to prison or face any real consequences. Ultimately, the Frontera Fund was established based on the way that Arpaio’s actions were determined to be in violation of the first amendment in years past.

However, this decision has not been followed up with influential legal action in recent years. This speaks to the way that corruption is rampant throughout the democratic system and may have yielded negative results for other parts of the country where similar behavior takes place.

Ultimately, the Frontera Fund aims to improve the way that migrant workers and immigrants can access litigation assistance.

This is more important now than ever, since the harmful actions of Arpaio have gone without reprimand. The future of civil liberties is based on a better quality of support at large.

Fabletics Brand is Growing despite the Tough Competition

Consumer purchases have changed in the modern times. Currently, most of the purchases made are determined by the power of the crowd. Before deciding to purchase a product, most people will first look at the reviews of other people so that they can be sure of the product or service in question. The clients trust the reviews they will read on a company website as well as the personal recommendation received from friends and relatives. Some of the most successful modern brands in the market have realized this secret, and they are using it as the dominant marketing strategy for their companies.

 

Fabletics is currently one of the brands that have shocked people in the international community because of their success in the competitive market. Fabletics was brought into the market in 2013 by two businessmen, Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg. When these two investors were starting the activewear company, they did not know that it would turn out to be one of the top giants in the highly competitive online market. In less than five years, this wonderful brand has managed to register a 200% growth. According to the company website, the institution has collected more than $235 million revenue since it was established. The success of the company is believed to be as a result of customer reviews.

 

Fabletics leadership has realized that consumers no longer consider the price and quality of a product when making a purchase, especially for the first time. The fashion brand has been depending on the prominence of customer reviews in its successful journey. The founders of the institution have been in the market for several years, and they have learned that consumer reviews have a huge impact when it comes to increasing the consumer acquisition in any company. Customer retention and loyalty depend on the reviews posted online.

 

Most people in the modern times live digital lives, and this means that they can only use online reviews to make crucial decisions. A lot of research is done online before a customer decides the company they will purchase their products from. The success of most brands in the market are influenced by the kind of reviews posted.

 

When Don Ressler and his friend decided to start the fashion company, they felt that they needed an influential person who could take the brand to better and higher levels. After a lot of discussions, the friends chose Kate Hudson to become a partner and assist in marketing the products. Kate Hudson is not just an ordinary star in the country. Kate’s great personality has assisted the company a lot. The actor and mother of two motivate women in the society to work hard in the gym and at the same time take care of their looks.

 

Before purchasing the products from Fabletics, it is paramount for all customers to take the lifestyle quiz that is conducted by fashion experts at the company. By answering the questions, the company understands its customers, and it can send them the right designs every month.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Inadvertently Helps Build The Frontera Fund

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was once the most feared and respected police officer in the U.S. for conservatives who were unwilling to look at his record of victimizing Mexican migrants to Arizona over what he described as an impressive arrest record. The record of Joe Arpaio led to an investigation by two of the most respected journalists and media executives in the U.S., Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin of Village Voice Media. The investigation into corruption and financial irregularities at Sheriff Arpaio’s Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department were followed by one of the most shocking incidents in the history of the U.S. media.

 

Village Voice Media executives, Jim Larkin and Michael lacey were taken from their homes in darkness on the evening of October 18th 2007 when they refused a Grand Jury Subpoena from Sheriff Arpaio’s Maricopa County to surrender personal information about the staff of the Phoenix New Times and its readership; in a clear attack on the First Amendment rights of the American public, the man who claimed to be “America’s toughest sheriff” called on members of Village Voice Media to provide the IP addresses of the readers of an article about the financial irregularities at Maricopa County’s Sheriff’s Department and a second article about the Grand Jury Subpoenas.

 

Of course, Larkin and Lacey both refused to provide the information requested by Sheriff Arpaio and his Maricopa County allies as they wished to protect the rights of their staff and readers. In a clear attack on the staff of the Phoenix New Times in response to the investigations into Sheriff Arpaio, the police officer sent unmarked SUV’s to the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin to arrest the pair without reason or cause.

 

The illegal detention of the two journalists spectacularly backfired for Sheriff Arpaio and provided the people of Arizona with the latest evidence of the illegal nature of the career of the sheriff. A national outcry from media outlets ensued and resulted in the release of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin in under 24 hours and a Ninth Circuit Supreme Court decision going their way in 2012 with $3.7 million in damages used to start The Frontera Fund.

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are popular figures for their work to protect the rights of Mexican migrants and people from minority groups who were often victimized by Sheriff Arpaio across his time as the Sheriff of Maricopa County.
