Sheriff Arpaio is the nastiest guy on the face of the earth. He judges the book by the cover, not by the contents inside. His racial profiling testifies to this unwholesome fact. In the 2000s and 2010s, he consciously made the effort to accuse Hispanic individuals of living here under unsanctioned conditions.
He gave orders to his subordinates to bother people on the roads by race. A lot of people’s times were wasted as they were wrongly profiled as people who do not belong in the USA.

The year 2017 was going to be the year when Arpaio’s victims would finally see justice being served. Federal judges were about to hold him accountable for his hate when our conservative president, Donald Trump, gave him an unfortunate helping hand by pardoning him.
Sheriff Arpaio is returning the favor by being vehemently pro-Trump. He was always pro-Trump, even before he was pardoned. In fact, Sheriff Arpaio is generally a conservative-minded person, which is the reason why he is so hard on illegal immigrants and Latino people.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are more on the liberal end of the political spectrum. They run a variety of publications that shun the draconian ways of more conservative-minded people like Sheriff Arpaio.
In fact, they specifically focus on Sheriff Arpsio in some of their publications. One of the fine writers who worked for them published data about Arpaio’s properties, including where he lived.
This really galled the sheriff. As a result, Arpaio searched for a reason to screw with Lacey ad Larkin. There is a state law that bans people from maliciously publishing the home addresses of men and women in law enforcement. He attempted to utilize this law to justify harassing the two men.
At first, he issued subpoenas to them. The subpoenas were highly invasive and asked for too much—information about every single person who wrote for the Phoenix New Times, as well as every single person who subscribed to it. Larkin and Lacey did not willfully submit without a fight; they refused to provide the info requested of them. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
They also opted to publish information of the unjust circumstances that they were in. As a result, Arpaio sent his subordinates to their homes to arrest them. Ultimately, the situation did not work out in Arpaio’s favor. The only thing that came out of this situation was that Arpaio made himself appear corrupt.
Arpaio is no longer around to terrorize people in Maricopa County. His 24 years of working as a sheriff ended in 2016. He is now pursuing a seat in the Arizona Senate. It seems that this man will not stop being involved in politics until he drops dead.
Arpaio says that if he wins a seat in the Arizona senate, he will revive the “birther” movement—a movement that questioned Obama’s birth certificate and his right to be president. Who knows what other horrors Arpaio will be capable of if he wins a seat in the senate!
