Jim Larkin, John Brunst, and Scott Spear were arraigned as defendants at Sandra Day United State courthouse in Arizona before magistrate Bridget Bade. The three were accused of being involved in money laundering.
Spear and Larkin had been also accused of facilitating and devising on prostitution. The three suspects pleaded not guilty and two of them were released. Larkin was however left behind pending hearing.
Michael Lacey was also arrested by some law enforcement officer days before his marriage party celebrations which were to be held at his home in Paradise Valley. This veteran newspaperman’s house was invaded by the FBI days before this celebration and according to passers-by and witnesses; Lacey’s belongings were carted away by the FBI agents during the raid. The FBI agents also raided Jim Larkin, who was lacey’s partner in business for a couple of years, Paradise Valley home.
Larkin and Lacey owed a seventeen alternative weeklies news empire together that emerged from initiating the flagship Phoenix News-Times in 1970. Joe Arpaio conducted Lacey and Larkin arrests. The two vended chain, which was by then known as the Village Voice Media (VVM), but still held on to their interest in the giant online listing Backpage.com which excluded VVM from the deal. The FBI also seized the Friday’s back page after the raid.
The company denied the allegations of it being a sex trafficking facilitator and an online brothel. In 2015, Lacey and Larkin ventured their Backpage interests to Carl Ferrer, the CEO. The 93-count accusation is said to have involved seven individuals, but only Lacey and Larkin’s names were tabled at the time.
Larkin and Lacey filled a lawsuit for wrongful arrest which saw them awarded three million, seven hundred and fifty dollars as compensation which was paid by Maricopa County. In 2017, Larkin and Lacey initiated Front Page Confidential which they used to analyze and provide news on issues pertaining to the first amendment.
The move by the government to suppress the website and the arrests made are a clear indication of assaults on the press freedom. Cambria, who is highly knowledgeable in first amendment jurisprudence, said that his client would plead not guilty to all accusation during the hearings that had been set by the court.

According to Cambria, the FBI’s move of eliminating the Backpage was an act of suppression of media freedom and he expressed his believe in the release of Lacey and Larkin. He also stated that the acts by the government were unconstitutional and he was ready to go head on to ensure the release of the two.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, two owners of the Phoenix New Times, have given their thoughts about the pardon given to former Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The two who spent years investigating accusations of crime against Joe. They know him very well and the actions that he has committed in the line of duty.
To Lacey and Larkin, this is one person who does not need to be part of the free world. He does not believe in freedom of all people, and his place, therefore, deserves to be behind bars. In performing his duties of enforcing the law, he went to the extra extent of disobeying the same laws that he purported to enforce.
Lacey and Larkin had an opportunity to look at the life of Joe Arpaio, and the information they found about him is disgusting. This is a man who spent years torturing immigrants who were living in his county. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Village Voice Media | Wikipedia
Arizona is a border state, and therefore, the number of immigrants from Mexico were too many. Joe Arpaio used this opportunity to set his parallel system of law where anyone he caught in the county illegally was subjected to inhumane treated which culminated in deportation.
Joe Arpaio committed crimes that should land him in jail according to Lacey and Larkin. Some of the crimes they accuse him of perpetrating are corruption, beating, sex crimes, embezzlement of jail money and setting up of illegal concentration camps.
The concentration camps were used to hold up immigrants before they were deported. Life in the concentration camps was, however, hell on earth. The conditions of living were unbearable.
Lacey and Larkin using their media house Phoenix New Times used to expose the actions of Arpaio, but none of their attempts would stop him from committing these crimes. Instead of changing his ways, he stopped the media house from covering his press conferences.
In 2007, Lacey and Larkin had an encounter with Joe Arpaio; he sent officers to arrest them. Each one was taken to a concentration camp established by Joe Arpaio.
The following day after it became apparent the two journalists had been arrested, media fraternity in the country condemned this action so much that Joe Arpaio released them within 24 hours. The county attorney who was a close ally of Joe described the arrest as unfortunate. He said the arrest was uncalled for just like the arrests and deportation of the immigrants.

According to the attorney, every person has a right to live in any part of the country irrespective of whether they are native or not. Even if one is an illegal immigrant, torture is never an excuse. That is a violation of human rights and should be stopped by all means possible. The constitution of the United States protects every person from discrimination even if they are immigrants.
Lacey and Larkin now have a foundation they established to deal with the issue of human rights violations in the state of Arizona. The Frontera fund is meant to support activities of the human right activist in the state. The action of human rights abuse like the ones committed by Arpaio should not be allowed to happen again.
Maricopa County is a county in southern Arizona near the border of Mexico—ground zero for the arrival of illegal immigrants. Being in and near deserts, its temperatures soar up to deadly heights. The harsh climate creates a huge obstacle for those who attempt to cross the border. Some people never make it across alive.

There are local organizations that work with each other to put out water and other life-saving resources for people who cross the border. There is an organization called the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund that generously donates to organizations like this.
The Fund is owned by two men who are very sympathetic to the cause of immigrants who cross the border—Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. These two men have written for The Phoenix New Times—a left-winged publication—ever since the early 1970s. Since the 1990s, they have been closely following the actions of Sheriff Arpaio. As a result, Arpaio took an interest in persecuting them. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
In 2007, Lacey and Larkin experienced the shock of being manhandled by cops in plain clothes, thrown into vans and taken to separate jails. This happened because they kept poking at Sheriff Arpaio, constantly exposing his wrongdoings on their online publication.
They pursued their case in court and worked out a deal with Maricopa County to be handed over $3.7 million dollars. Upon receiving this money, Lacey and Larkin did not just fade into the woodwork or spend the money on unneeded material items—they founded the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund!
What would Sheriff Arpaio think of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund? Well, judging by what kind of ideology he goes by, he would probably not agree with the existence of the Fund. He would probably consider it as the abetment of criminals.
Arpaio kept racially profiling people after he got into trouble for it. As a result, he was held in criminal contempt. Trump pardoned him in 2017, letting Arpaio get off Scott-free. Some people believe that Arpaio was completely correct in his policy to spot and detain potential illegal aliens. Other people, like Lacey and Larkin, opine otherwise.
All over the website for the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, you can find story after story about Sheriff Arpaio. For years, they have been on his butt like glue, digging up every little piece of negative information about him that they can find.
There are also some negative stories about Trump because, of course, Trump is classified as being a total “bigot” in the same way that Arpaio is.

As Switzerland started seeing things change in 2008 with the financial crisis reaching even the halls of their fortified banks, the call started echoing to start moving away from just safe business investments and to take a risk on the new and the unknown coming in part from President Johann Schneider-Ammann, and being followed by businessman Mike Baur. Baur believes there are many ideas for brand new tech businesses circulating in Switzerland’s universities and other colleges around Europe, but it’s just a matter of being willing to believe in them and take the risks. But he’s working to get these businesses off the ground and to do so rapidly through an accelerator known as the Swiss Startup Factory. This accelerator has not only a lot of pitch and demonstration sessions, but also ongoing coaching and giving entrepreneurs a better understanding of selling their business.
Mike Baur originally saw his path to lifetime success going through banking as it was the most popular way to get rich at the time. He was good with numbers and started out learning the aspects of bank management as an apprentice at UBS while only 16 years old. He was already involved in advising clients in his 20s and came to know some of Switzerland’s wealthiest investors. Baur was promoted several times at UBS until he was almost an executive, but in 2008 things changed as the financial crisis hit UBS. Baur left for another big bank, Clariden Leu where he once again became a prominent manager. But in 2014 he stepped down permanently and decided it was time to enter the unknown.
Other people had also left their previous positions in banking when Baur did including Max Meister and Oliver Walzer who also saw a big opportunity to invest in young people and start bringing about completely new companies to Switzerland. What Baur understood was that many ideas and beginning businesses just needed to develop sustainable plans and be able to connect with capital suppliers, so that’s when he, Meister and Walzer decided to build this kind of network at the Swiss Startup Factory through a partnership with Goldback Group and Fintech Fusion. While many people apply to get to the SSUF’s 3-month accelerator program, not too many are admitted and out of those admitted there are few finalists who make it to the SSUF portfolio. But those who do are also given free office space and resources to launch their companies.
Paul Mampilly, an American investor, and former hedge manager, recently published about the events that took place in 1989 in the investment industry. In university, Paul was a member of the financial club, and he visited the New York Stock Exchange where he was welcomed warmly to Wall Street with an investment banker. The club members experienced an exciting moment on the exchange floor, and they learned a lot about investments.
Those were the days before the computer era, and therefore orders were placed by phones. Investors owned portable devices which enabled them to carry out their investments from anywhere. Paul recalls that everyone screamed when opening bell time approached and could not hear sounds. At 9:30 a.m. when the stock market opening bell rang, the floor was full of chaos and busy.
As years went by, the exchange floor became quieter, less in chaos and was brought to control. Today, many investors work with brokers who access complex software platforms or place trades using computers. Wall Street is still influential since it entered the market in 1972. Paul believes that the fantastic investment past days are fading away with the current investment strategies.
Wall Street consists of lawyers, investment bankers, auditors and different exchanges who have the primary goal of selling stocks but they need to work their way out through a complicated network. Mr. Mampilly believes these new financial trends differ with previous concepts of investments.
Moreover, Paul has a newsletter known as Profits Unlimited that recently hit 60,000 subscribers. Profits Unlimited is usually published by Banyan Hill Publishing ever since Paul was signed last year with the aim of leading Main Street Americans into profitable investment opportunities. Monthly, Paul writes an eight-page newsletter on a new stock and updates, subscribers, weekly and also tracks how the investments are doing.
Mampilly does not invest capital for his subscribers but rather than buying the stocks using their brokerage accounts which provides an alternative technique that is different from traditional arrangements between a client and a financial advisor. Paul Mampilly’s subscribers are usually impressed with how most of the stocks suggested by Paul are doing well.
Paul Mampilly is a financial investor who worked on Wall Street for over 20 years dealing with renowned clients like Kinetics and Deutsche Bank. In 1991, Paul worked at Deutsche Bank where he worked tirelessly managing huge amounts of money. Moreover, he worked at other companies like ING, Kinetics and Royal Bank. Paul Mampilly is positive about helping people understand the stock investment business.
