Michael Lacey Explains why Arpaio was Pardoned

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were one of the hundreds of people who say they were illegally arrested by Joe Arpaio. Most of Arpaio’s victims were Latinos and Hispanic-Americans. What makes Larkin and Lacey’s incident so different is that they are two elderly white men who owned their own local business.

Lacey and Larkin were the co-owners of The Phoenix New Times at the time of their arrest. Some of their journalists, under presumed orders from Lacey and Larkin, had been investigating Arpaio and his questionable actions as Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. Eventually, Arpaio had had enough, he sent his deputies in unmarked SUVs to pull Lacey and Larkin out of their homes.

The two were separated and taken to different jails, both under operation of the then time Sheriff Arpaio.

It wasn’t long until people all over the country were reading about their arrests in national publications such as The Washington Post and The New York Times. Readers were furious, their outrage convinced Maricopa County’s county attorney, Andrew Thomas, to call a press conference to announce that the journalist are going free.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin sued the county on grounds that their first amendment rights had been violated and the duo went on to take home a 3.75 million dollar settlement.

When it comes to the crimes of Arpaio, cases like the journalist’s is minor league. Arpaio has been accused by many as being responsible for the beatings and torture of inmates in his facilities. Reports from CNN in 2011 suggest that one time a pregnant woman in his care was chained to a bed.

Only a year after he was elected, his most immoral construct came to life. In 1993, he created Tent City with the supposed intent to combat prison over-population. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

In reality, Arpaio operated it like a Nazi concentration camp. Reports of inmates being beaten and tortured circulated in publication for the 20 plus years it was allowed to be operated. Finally, in 2017, Tent City was closed down. Arizona began to put Sheriff Joe Arpaio behind them.

2017 was also the year it looked like charges were finally going to stick to Joe Arpaio. In the Summer of 2017, Joe Arpaio was found guilty of contempt of court and was all set to face sentencing.

That’s when Donald Trump, under presumptions that he could make his fanbase happy, pardoned Joe Arpaio. The victims of Arpaio had been taken for a an emotional roller coaster and now would not see justice served.

“At the end of the day,” Michael Lacey began, “that sort of racist, brutal, cracker philosophy appealed to enough voters.” he said as he explained the reason he believes Trump gave the pardon. “Trump thinks there’s some political traction to be had by pardoning the guy.”

With Trump’s approval ratings so low, Lacey believes he is trying to please the thirty percent that are still on his side.

Lime Crime Founder Doe Deere Featured in Inspirely

Doe Deere is one of the coolest ladies I have ever heard of. She is the owner and founder of one of the coolest makeup companies I have ever used. The brand is called Lime Crime and it showcases some of the absolute best and luxurious makeup – especially lipstick – that I have ever had the pleasure of using. Not only is the brand affordable, but it is absolutely luscious. As a vegan, I appreciate the fact that ever single item is vegan-friendly and that the entire company is cruelty-free.


One of my favorite things about Doe Deere is that she has never waivered in her commitment to be absolutely sure that her products were always able to be used by vegans and never tested on animals. In fact, her makeup is approved by PETA and the Leaping Bunny association.


Doe Deere was recently featured in an article on Inspirely that utilized a very interesting question and answer format that helped me learn some more about her background and about how Lime Crime came into existence. She told the story of how Lime Crime was developed and I loved hearing the story of how one woman followed her passion and now there is a great line of fun and funky makeup being sold all over the world, and especially to me.


In Doe Deere’s story, she mentions she has always been passionate and highly interested in two things: makeup and fairy tales. She even says she chose the name Lime Crime because it seemed like one of the rhymes that often appear in fairy tales. She said she likes how these rhymes in fairy tales seem to be just for fun. Lime Crime was originally meant to be a clothing company, as Doe Deere has always created her own clothing since she was a little girl. However, when she was studying at a fashion institute, she began to question if clothing was meant to be her life’s work or if it was more of a hobby.


The story goes on that she began designing her own makeup for the simple reason that she could not find the colors and richness she was looking for to do her own makeup. She quickly realized that there were a lot of people out there who were looking for exactly the same style of makeup that she was. Thus, Lime Crime was born and people loved the brand.


The Lime Crime fan base has been said to be almost like a cult of makeup customers. They are incredibly passionate about Lime Crime’s products and go absolutely crazy each time that a new product comes out. For example, Lime Crime just released a line of eyeshadows that are created to look exactly like the ‘90s rage toy, the Polly Pocket. Lime Crime and Doe Deere are never afraid to do things like this and to step out of the box. Perhaps that is one of the reasons that the company has been so successful and developed such a loyal fan base.

Lacey and Larkin Speak Out Against Presidential Corruption With the Pardon of Joe Arpaio

Last October in Arizona, President Donald Trump’s pardon of Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was formally validated by District Judge Susan Bolton.

Sheriff Joe had been convicted in July of the same year for criminal contempt of court. Trump’s pardon came about weeks before Arpaio’s scheduled sentencing. This conviction came about as a result of a racial-profiling lawsuit in 2007, after which, Arpaio elected to ignore the order of a federal judge.

The Infamous Sheriff Joe Walks Away a Free Man

The validation of Trump’s pardon puts an abrupt end to possibly the final chapter of the decades-long story of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Throughout Arpaio’s 24-year run, he’d been at the forefront of numerous scandals, including the arrest of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, journalists, and former co-owners of the Phoenix New Tims. Over his time as sheriff, Larkin and Lacey used the Phoenix New Times to consistently expose Arpaio’s scandals and atrocities against migrants and inmates.

Lacey offered a few words of appraisal on Arpaio and Trump: “This is the perfect marriage of two corrupt individuals,” he notes. “[Arpaio] is a sheriff who advertised torture and racism,” Lacey added.

Arpaio Manipulates Politics to Make His Escape

While Trump’s pardon is what ultimately allowed Arpaio to walk away, few people ever believed that he would spend any time behind bars for his cavalcade of criminal actions. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

Looking back, one has to wonder if Arpaio sensed that he was nearing the end of the line, and leveraged his political acumen to formulate a strategy to leave unscathed by the ghosts of his atrocities.

His endorsement of Donald Trump in early 2016 surprised many, who, at the time, found the idea of Trump even securing the GOP nomination outlandish. While his 2016 run for a seventh term as sheriff fell flat, endorsing Trump would later pay off for Arpaio.

“He was a terrible sheriff… But he was a great fucking politician,” going on to say that “It’s hard to admit that because I don’t respect Arpaio for anything other than his political acumen.” Lacey goes on to note that Trump will likely gain approval from his followers for this move, but says that “the rest of us are never going to forget it.”

Larkin and Lacey Fight Against Joe Arpaio’s Racist Philosophy

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin knew Arpaio had to be stopped and were tireless in their exposure of his crimes against humanity. Perhaps this is why, in late 2007, they were stuffed into unmarked cars by Arpaio’s thugs, and brought to one of his jails in handcuffs.

Predictably, the public didn’t exactly approve of the arrests, and due to immense public outrage, the pair of journalists were released less than 24 hours later.

Larkin and Lacey sued, settling several years later for $3.75 million, which was paid for by the county.

Using this settlement, they created the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, which serves to provide grants to Arizona organizations focused on migrant rights and free speech.

Maricopa County

After the former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio, was pardoned by President Donald Trump, erasing the chance of any jail time, U.S. District Judge, Susan R. Bolton, made the decision official; a move that surprised few. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, longtime foes of “Sheriff Joe,” who were famously and unjustly rousted from their homes by Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputies, continued their crusade to expose his many injustices by speaking to the media concerning President Trump’s decision.

Michael Lacey seemed to agree with Rex Tillerson’s assessment of President Trump, reiterating his “moron” statement, then proceed to lay out a condensed list of Joe Arpaio’s trespasses against humanity.

Joe Arpaio made national headlines when the conditions involving his jail, often referred to as “tent city,” came into the public eye. Instead of attempting to right the conditions, Sheriff Arpaio referred to tent city as his own personal “concentration camp,” continuing his harassment of minorities, particularly Latino’s, throughout the region.

In 1970, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were simply two college dropouts living in the midst of the rapidly changing environment of the United States. With the Vietnam War in full force, protests began erupting throughout the country, particularly on college campuses.

In the wake of the Kent State Shooting, and already discouraged with the way the traditional media was covering the war, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, along with a group of their peers, including Nick Stupey, Hal Smith, Karen Lofgren, and Frank Fiore, decided to enact change by taking advantage of the nation’s budding desire for an alternative take on current events.

Later that year, they published their inaugural issue of the Phoenix New Times – a free weekly print paper that delivered perspectives that were in stark contrast to the ideology of mainstream 1970’s America. Eventually, Michael Lacey would take on the role of Executive Editor, while Jim Larkin, already married with children, would handle the marketing aspects of the newspaper.

This proved to be a formidable combination due to Michael Lacey and his team’s staunch commitment to presenting an accurate description of the times, and Jim Larkin, who had increased motivation due to his family responsibilities, kicking off a campaign that would convince established companies to place adds in their fledgling paper.  Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427427/Jim_Larkin and http://james-larkin.com/press/

Throughout the 1970’s the company continued to grow exponentially, and by the early 1980’s, they would acquire the Denver area newspaper, Westword – a move that would lead to the acquisition of 16 additional papers, spreading their message from coast to coast.

Eventually, these acquisitions would come to include world-renowned print papers such as LA Weekly, Village Voice, Nashville Scene, and OC Weekly. After years of growing their company, New Times Inc, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey decided to step down, selling their stakes to a few longstanding executives.

Today, the team of Larkin and Lacey continue to focus on human rights, consistently pushing the Frontera Fund, and they recently decided to delve back into the world of journalism with the launch of FrontPage Confidential.

The Inspiration of Rodrigo Terpins

The brothers Rodrigo and Michel Terpins have been racing cars as a team now for over 15 years. The two are part of the multiple award-winning Bull Sertoes Rally Team, Brazil’s most popular racing team. Rodrigo is the eldest brother of these two world-class drivers. The brothers are the sons of the famous Brazilian basketball of the 70s, Jack Terpin (popularly known as Jackao). Jackao began his career in the 60s playing for Herbraica. In 1991 he was its Sports Director. The sons clearly inherited their father’s passion for excelling in a sport.

Rodrigo Terpins is also like his father in that he is a successful businessman. One of the things that have inspired to do so well in racing is a shared desire to honor their dad. The longest race of the rally in which both brothers compete is a race that passes through several Brazilian states. It is one of the largest off-road events in the world. It is so surprising that as successful that he has become at racing and public popularity, that Rodrigo has maintained such a humble but passionate commitment to family. He mentored his brother after he joined the team in 2002 and as a result, his brother has become equally great.

With the help of his brother, Rodrigo Terpins is the current leader of the Brazilian T1 championship. In addition, Michel has won the Mitsubishi competition multiple times. In the recent rally, Rodrigo raced with Fabrício Bianchini, placing eighth in an intense lineup of 30 other competitors. Just as the brothers have a passion for family, their family shares a passion for racing. As the eldest son in racing, Rodrigo is doing an excellent job making this a lasting piece of the family heritage. He is an inspiration not only to his family but to millions of race fans.

Roberto Santiago Offers Evergreen Shopping and Entertainment Experience at Manaira Shopping

Shopping mall industry is always considered a new industry with a youthful ambiance and experience. It has revolutionized the way world shops and enjoys, and gave a revamp to the traditional retail industry in a quick span of time. Thought it was introduced in the United States for the first time in the late 1950s, shopping mall craze spread across the globe in no time. While coming to Brazil, the retail sector and the people grabbed the industry quickly due to what it offers: vast shopping options, fun, dining and more. It was made possible by a small group of visionary entrepreneurs. Roberto Santiago and his Manaira Shopping mall cannot be removed from that list.


Manaira Shopping has changed the landscape of the city João Pessoa and the state Paraíba significantly. The shopping mall, which is opened in November 1989, was the clear indication of where the Brazilian retail industry was heading. But, a very few expected that the shopping mall of Roberto Santiago would test the time and retain the top spot even after decades. A vast majority of the people expected that when new shopping malls with latest technologies, shopping options, and fun choices get launched, Manaira Shopping would go to the backseat. Roberto Santiago foresaw such challenges and went for numerous expansion plans, both minor and major, and ensured that each time visitors get something new to explore or enjoy.


Today, it is the largest shopping mall in the state and one of the biggest in the country by area. It also receives a footfall of nearly 20 million people annually per the records of 2015. The shopping mall features 11 movie halls of Cinépolis with most modern projectors, Active 3D technology, Stadium System, VIP Room, and more. The halls are equipped to provide the ultimate movie experience to the viewers. It has a Game Station, an electronic amusement park, with more than 200 different types of games that can target different genres such as young people, kids, children, aged, serious gamers, and more. It houses nearly 250 fashion outlets and other stores along with many other exotic restaurants and fast food centers.


Roberto Santiago is sure of the needs of different sets of people who are visiting the shopping mall and ready to address their pains. For instance, he established Pirlimpimpim, a play center for kids and children. This helps the families to leave their children at the play center under the supervision of the caretakers and play center staff and proceed with their shopping. To address the needs of growing events, music shows, exhibitions and more, Roberto Santiago opened a concert hall named Domus Hall. The two-story hall accommodates 4,000 chairs, and a maximum of 10,000 people can stand and watch the events and programs.
