Lacey and Larkin revisit the arrest by Joe Arpaio

Different presidents in the United States have made controversial pardons, but many of these cases might not be known to a majority in the current generation. However, President Trump has made one pardon that falls squarely in the league of controversial pardons by a head of state.

Towards the end of 2017, President Trump pardoned notorious former Sheriff of Maricopa County known as Joe Arpaio. Among the crimes he committed is unlawfully arresting Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, journalists and owners of Village Voice Media.

The story of Arpaio and the two journalists goes back to 2007 when he ordered their arrest. He accused them of disclosing details related to grand jury proceedings. In what later came to be decided by the courts as a case of First Amendment violation, Arpaio took the journalists from their homes at midnight and proceeded to hold them in the illegal jails he was running.

Lacey and Larkin were held for 24 hours after which they were released following pressure from the media industry.

Through one of their newspapers known as the Phoenix New Times, Lacey and Larkin focused on the atrocities in Maricopa while Arpaio was the sheriff. They focused on illegal jails such as the Tent City which was a torture chamber for immigrants who he arrested. The paper also focused on crimes that were going in these jails. There were cases of human rights violations of worrying magnitude. Inmates were beaten mercilessly and tortured through the denial of basic supplies such as food and medicine.

Due to the nature of crimes Arpaio had committed, he found himself in court severally, answering to cases of harassment of immigrants. In 2011, he was ordered by a judge to stop racial profiling of immigrants, an order he never obeyed. Arpaio aggressively tortured thousands of Latinos who had crossed the border into the United States despite the court intervention.

After Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin took up the case of Arpaio and covered it in deals, his criminal deeds caught the attention of the whole country. The public pressure had the Sheriff taken back to court once more to face charges of contempt of court orders.

Joe Arpaio was found guilty by the courts and was to be sentenced in October 2017. However, those like Lacey and Larkin who wanted to see the former Sheriff pay for his mistakes were left dismayed after President Trump gave Arpaio a pardon even before the sentencing date.

Learn More About Bradesco And Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi

     Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has unarguably had an outstanding career at Banco Bradesco. Succeeding in any country’s banking industry is difficult, let alone maintaining the private Banco Bradesco’s size and performance among the top three major financial institutions in all of Brazil – right behind Indonesia in terms of population, ranking fifth in the world; Brazil also has a top-notch economy relative to every other nation’s economic output.

As of 2018, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will celebrate his 50th year with Bradesco – also known as Banco Bradesco SA, where “SA” stands for South America. He started toiling away for the then-young company with only 20-odd years under its less-than-corporate belt immediately after finishing compulsory secondary schooling at the age of 17.

Mr. Trabuco climbed through every rank possible within Bradesco’s organization

Banco Bradesco didn’t promote Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi – at least not any meaningful promotions relative to the bumps in workplace rank he has received over the last two decades – much until after he showed leadership, poise, and care for cross-departmental efficiency as the director of marketing.

At the age of 32, some 15 years’ experience at Bradesco made him comfortable enough within the organization to revamp its communications policies with reporters, journalists, and curious businesspeople. Rather than keeping the company’s information as secret as possible under perpetual lock-and-key, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi decided to openly share all information that didn’t include things like trade secrets, customer information, and other sensitive information.

Banco Bradesco immediately became more popular among Brazilians because no other bank had made such a firm push towards transparency among all ranks and departments of the business. Rather than being obligated to send all inquiries regarding interviews to public relations or communications departments within Banco Bradesco, all employees were free to chat with literally anyone as long as super-sensitive topics weren’t touched on.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi isn’t at the top anymore

Mr. Trabuco is not at the top of Banco Bradesco’s executive chain of command anymore, though he is the President of the Council at the company – the position roughly translates to being the chairman of a company’s board of directors.
