Joe Arpaio, who is the former sheriff of Maricopa County, is not a fan of the Phoenix New Times. He despised the newspaper because of the writers behind each article it publishes, most notably Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. According to Joe Arpaio, the two activists are writing bad stories about him, and they are also trying to destroy his distinguished name.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin cleared out that the only reason why they are writing against Joe Arpaio is that of his abuses towards the migrants. Joe Arpaio, who is more popularly known as the Toughest Sheriff in America, repeatedly became the main focus of the news because of his actions towards the migrants.
One of his infamous work is the Tent City prison, where illegal migrants are detained. According to news stories, the condition inside the Tent City is terrible, and prisoners die because of extreme temperatures.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have inspired the migrant population of Maricopa County to report Joe Arpaio to the authorities, and when he continued harassing the migrants, the county attorney’s office started sending out warning letters to him and asking him to stop.
However, Joe Arpaio continued his unethical actions, and the county attorney’s office arrested him due to contempt. He was put inside the prison and was sentenced to stay there for a long time. However, his prison service was terminated after President Donald Trump granted him a pardon. Joe Arpaio tried to run for another term being the Sheriff of Maricopa County, but he lost.
