The fight against corruption, inequality, and injustices, is addressed on a daily basis. However, many people are reluctant to do the right thing. Only a few know the pain of the minority and what they go through under the pressure of inequality and profiling. Many organizations have been formed in the past to advocate for justice and equality, but their efforts seem to be fruitless with the political pressure across the globe.

Joe Arpaio is among the individuals who are constantly breaking the law without any consequences. As the sheriff of Maricopa County, many people suffered his mistreatment. The memories of his reign are full of sad stories and pain.
Joe Arpaio is a racist and believes that the Latinos are the cause of every misfortune that befalls the state. He was ordered to stop discriminating the Latino drivers, but he ignored the federal court and even influenced his subjects to do the same. He never denied his evil deeds when he was summoned to court to address the issue. Despite Arpaio defending himself saying that the order lacked some clarification; investigation proofed he did it intentionally.
This was the best news that his non-supporters had received after him losing his seat. However, they will never live to see Joe Arpaio go behind bars because Donald Trump has pardoned him. The latter said that Arpaio was doing his job. He added that the service that Arpaio had offered to the state could not be repaid by sentencing him.
Many human and civil groups have expressed their disappointment on Trump’s decision. On the other side, Arpaio is very grateful and has even announced to run for the senatorial seat.
Lacey and Larkin have promised to fight until the sheriff gets the punishment he deserves. It is especially hard for them to forget his misdoings, having been victims of his mistreatment. The duo was arrested from their homes at midnight after publishing his evil deeds as the headlines of Phoenix New Times.
There are many things that his opponents remember. A good example is the Tent City that Joe Arpaio opened to cover the overflow of the correctional facilities. He made the inmates wear pin underwears and work in chain gains. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Twitter
The convicts who disobeyed the orders were brutally punished. Pregnant women were shackled in beds when giving birth. They were also cases of suicidal cases and deaths in the facility. The climax of the deeds was when a diabetic woman went to a comma after she was denied her medication. Another careless death was an Army veteran who died during the prisoner’s riots.
Joe Arpaio was also among the supporters of the Presidency of Donald Trump. He used his power to discriminate against Barack Obama. He fuelled Trump’s allegations of Barack Obama not being born in the USA. Joe accused Obama of having faked his certificate.
Lacey and Larkin are ready to start the battle they fought long ago if that is what it takes to have justice serviced to all. They won the battle against the sheriff last time; there is no reason they can’t this time.
