Sheriff Arpaio has a long history of working in law-enforcement and military occupations. Between 1950 and 1954, he served in the Korean War in the Medical Detachment Division. After serving in the military, he worked as a cop in Washington, D.C. for a duration of three years. Then, he had a six month long stint in Las Vegas as a police officer.
Arpaio started a 25 year career in the Drug Enforcement Administration in 1957. Through the mechanisms of the system, he was elected to the job of Sheriff in Maricopa County. Around the mid-to-late 2010s, he was no longer the Sheriff of Maricopa County. President Trump thanked him for over 50 years of “service” that he gave to this country.
Yeah, it’s true that Sheriff Arpaio “served” his country, if the word “serve” means being a bum! He is one among many law enforcement officials guilty of racially profiling brown-skinned minorities. Arpaio is right up there with the guy who killed Trayvon and those countless other guys who have been exposed within the past 6 years for their racial profiling crimes against black people.
Of course, his victims were not black—they were Latino. If he racially profiled black people, society would be really be up in arms to the maximum extent. This is because even though black people are on the bottom in society, they are the most vocal. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase
From the time that we are children we are taught about the civil rights of black people before anybody else, so many of us who are not black would be very much up in arms. So, society is generally the most vocal when black people are harassed. This is the reason why Hispanic people need to raise their voices up.
Jim Lacey and Michael Larkin have started an organization geared toward the plights of giving Latinos a voice. The goal is to make a society where there is an equally huge outrage about discrimination toward any sort of minority. The name of this prodigious organizations is the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
Lacey and Larkin believe that the way to prop up the voices of Latinos is to address intersectional interests in the Latino community. Some intersectional interests include those of Latinos who have been in America for many years, newly arrived Latinos, people with gender identities that differ from their biological genders, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, DREAMERs, people who have been emotionally scarred by things that happened to them in their home countries, and people who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes.
The two visionaries have been doing this ever since the year 2013, when they received a pretty huge settlement from the local county as a result of being put through a whole ordeal. It was only natural that they would use the money for a social justice cause because of the fact that they were already involved in social justice work.
Their social justice work consisted of owning and writing for publications. The stories that they published and wrote had to do with the ills of society.
