Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Continue Battle Against Joe Arpaio

Published / by Logan / Leave a Comment

One of the most bizarre actions of President Donald Trump, despite all of the strange tweets and speeches, is the pardoning of former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. Donald Trump teased the pardon at an Arizona rally, so every knew it was coming. Only a few months after Arpaio’s conviction came through, Donald Trump pardoned him.

If you do not know who Joe Arpaio is, then you probably don’t know Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey either. These three Arizona residents were all featured in the headlines in 2007 when Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin co-owned the Phoenix New Times, leading efforts to expose Sheriff Joe’s questionable behavior. They wrote about Joe Arpaio’s hidden assets, his controversial arrests, and other topics. Joe Arpaio, in an attempt to put the negative publicity to rest, arrested Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

This wasn’t the only controversial arrest in 2007; Joe Arpaio also arrested a tourist who was visiting from Mexico. Joe Arpaio admitted that the illegal arrest was a result of racial profiling and was ordered to no longer participate in immigration law.

Arpaio ignored these orders, claiming confusion, but the judge didn’t buy his excuse. Arpaio was charged with criminal contempt of court, the crime he would later be pardoned for.

Joe Arpaio has also the tax payers of Maricopa County a fortune. The incident with Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin cost the tax payers nearly 4 million dollars; When Mr. Melendres, the Mexican tourist was arrested, tax payers footed a 70 million dollar restitution.

These illegal arrests are minuscule compared to some of the other actions of Arpaio. Arpaio also opened a concentration camp, ordered the torture of inmates, and intimidated political opponents. Citizens of Maricopa County found relief when Joe Arpaio was voted out of office a few years ago. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey and https://about.me/michael-lacey

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey took their 3.7 million dollar settlement and opened The Frontera Fund. This charitable organization works to correct the near limitless damage of Joe Arpaio.

The Frontera Fund works closely with the Hispanic community, by assisting other charities in fundraising, to make amends for the actions of Arpaio. Mr. Melendres was not the only instance of a minority being targeted by Arpaio; Arpaio’s focus has been on the immigrant community for a very long time, tormented and arresting them.

Although Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey sold the Phoenix New Times around the same time they created The Frontera Fund, they weren’t able to stay out of the publication business for very long. In 2017, Front Page Confidential was created. This online newspaper covers content dealing with politics but also covers civil rights, migrant rights, and even features pop culture occasionally.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are doing what they can to correct and prevent Joe Arpaio’s damage. This is no easy task, Joe Arpaio was Sheriff for 24 years, and during this time was able to commit a long list of injustices.

“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”: Penn’s take on the Problems in the U.S.

Published / by Logan / Leave a Comment

In the spring of 2018, Sean Penn released his novel “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.” As he told Trevor Noah and Vogue Magazine, he has stepped away from film and has worked on this as a new medium for his views. Penn told Noah that the book looks into the “dark nature of humans” and their fascination with fascism; to Vogue he mentions that his book runs on a parallel plain the #METOO movement. As discussed by Trevor Noah, the book is hard to describe and is many ways a strange story with no formal plot or structure. Penn says that the book talks of how the U.S. tries to export democracy and at times can create fascism in its place. He feels that this issue is now occurring in the U.S. as well. The book tells the story of Bob Honey, an angry and pessimistic American. When not angrily throwing parties at his house, he goes on mallet wielding sprees, killing senior citizens whom he feel stand in the way of progress.

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff seems to be a metaphor for the current state of events, as Bob witnesses the U.S. election of 2016, and even writes an angry letter to the President of the U.S., telling him that the job is real, but he isn’t fit for it. Penn claims that Bob is supposed to resemble the person who is compelled to serve their country, but lacks a purpose or direction. This in many ways could explain why Bob goes on mallet wielding sprees, feeling that he is doing a service to society.

Other than discussing the book in the interviews, Penn also mentions how his own experiences reflect in the book. He talks of his service towards Haiti victims, and how Trump’s comments angered him. He also discusses his unlikely friendship with Hugo Chavez, and his disgust for the war on drugs, and why the interview with El Chapo was necessary. As Penn told Vogue, it seems he has lost his intention to work in film, but he found a new medium in writing.

OSI Industries Acquires Baho Food, Tyson Plant

Published / by Logan / Leave a Comment

OSI Industries made a major move to strengthen its North American and United States presence with the acquisition of a massive former Tyson Foods plant. The plant is several thousand square feet large and formerly was one of Tyson’s largest producer and distributor of poultry products and meat products in the North East. The Tyson Food plant is located on the South Side of Chicago and employed nearly 2,000 people, many of which had been with the company for decades. The area where the plant is located is moderately depressed and good jobs with great benefits are often hard to come by. This would have been a devastating announcement for thousands of employees in Chicago’s Southside area. However, OSI saw what incredible value that plant had, along with the Tyson name. OSI Group swept in at the last minute and purchased the plant, allowing the majority of the employees to keep their jobs. Similar to how OSI Industries operates, the Tyson house has several smaller sub-companies, many of which are some of the top names in meat and poultry in North America and beyond. OSI acquired the plant for $7.4 million and will retain the majority of the employees.

OSI Industries also recently grew its global portfolio with the purchase of Baho Food. The Dutch company is a household name in the Netherlands. However, it also has a massive European reach and continues to grow on an annual basis. Both of these facts have made Baho Food an incredibly attractive acquisition for OSI Group. Similar to OSI Industries, Baho Food prides itself on offering the highest quality of value added protein sources, such as poultry, meat, sausage and a variety of custom meats.

OSI Industries has been named as one of the top companies that is privately held and distributes value added protein products in all of the United States. The company has also been singled out as one of the top producers of meats and poultry due to the fact that is has many custom offerings. OSI Industries works with a variety of industries, from restaurants to even fine dining locations. The company has an entire division that focuses solely on meeting with these restaurants and retailers to create custom meat products that can then be distributed in everywhere from restaurant chains to grocery stores. This is essential for businesses as the consumer’s needs continue to evolve seasonally and as trends in dining needs vary.
