The motivation of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey
About a decade ago, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were unlawfully arrested by a Florida Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The two journalists were arrested for writing an article about the sheriff that was later proved to be right. Equally, the article was not defamation but a proper disposition.
The arrests of the journalists happened in the most unlawful ways. Several human rights principles were violated, and the duo felt that there was no justice at all. First, the two were taken from their homes at night which was not an office hour. After the arrest, they were detained without any charges.
These occurrences made Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey understand what it means to have rights taken away. They understood what people go through when human rights are violated. For this reason, Jim and Michael used the compensation money of $3.7 million to support the course of human rights. The money was divided among different groups that the interests of the citizens at heart.
