The world is in need of good men to stand up against the tyrannical regimes that seem to be running wild now that President Donald Trump is sitting in office. One such evil tyrant is the brutal Sheriff Joe Arpaio from the Maricopa County and the state of Arizona.
Sheriff Arpaio has committed atrocities against his fellow man, but Donald Trump decided that he would pardon this evil criminal and release him on the streets yet again. Luckily, we have men like Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who are standing against this tyrant and saying you will not commit this evil in our house.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin recently exposed several criminal activities that Sheriff Arpaio had been guilty of.
The first one was when Sheriff Arpaio ordered a raid on a home that he believed was both a drug cache and a weapons cache. It turned out that his intel was faulty and that there were no such things at this home.
Most of the time when this happens the police officers apologize and move on with their lives, not Sheriff Arpaio. Instead, he barred the animals inside the house, locked all the doors, and burnt the house to the ground just in case. He did this while the owners were screaming as they heard the animals barking and meowing in pain.

Sheriff Arpaio would try to keep these men quiet by breaking into their homes and demanding their silence. Luckily for us all, the men were not intimidated.
