Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are journalists and activists. The men have worked together to report on injustices around the country and they make sure that they are doing what they can to make things better for everyone who is a part of the country.
They do not like social injustice and they want to make sure that everyone has equal opportunities to make their lives better when they are a part of the cultural experience. It is something that has changed the way that people can do things and has made it better for them when they are in different situations.
When Lacey and Larkin were running their website, they tried to make sure that they told people about things that were corrupt and about things that were wrong with the world that they were living in. This was one of their main goals and something that they felt should always be done no matter what type of reporter was working on the information.
They knew that it was their duty to let others know about any information that they uncovered and they wanted people to be aware of all of the opportunities that they had that were taken away from them by these agencies.
One agency that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin found out about was their very own sheriff’s department in Phoenix. This department was doing things illegally and was not within constitutional limits with the way that they were treating people.
They had people arrested for no reason, they were doing things illegally and they were making major problems for the people who lived in the area. Lacey and Larkin chose to do a report on it so that others would know what was going on and so that they could be aware of the corruption that was happening.
The sheriff’s office responded in the same way that they responded to everything else that they didn’t like. They had Larkin and Lacey arrested and charged just because they didn’t like what they had to say in the report.
Since Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin had been helping people who were going through similar things throughout their entire career, they were confident that they were within their rights and they made the choice to try and fight the sheriff’s department on the charges that they were trying to file against them for the report that they did.
While the court case was not an easy one and took a long time for the men to be able to get through, they found that it was worth it in the end. They took it through several different courtrooms and they were able to win against the sheriff’s office. Read more: Michael Larcey | Twitter
Instead of having to deal with the charges and the fines that came along with the charges, the men were awarded a settlement from the sheriff. They were then able to take the over three million dollar sum and start the Frontera Fund where they could help other people with civil rights cases.
