Angola prison is one of the most famous in the United States. As Louisiana’s main level-four prison, it houses of some of the state’s worst offenders. But not everybody in Angola prison is slated to stay there for the rest of their lives. Many of the prisoners will eventually be reintegrated into society, being given a second chance at living law abiding life.
One of the most important aspects in preparing those prisoners for a successful release back into the public is enabling them to learn how to re-socialize according to law-abiding norms. One of the ways in which the state of Louisiana is helping prisoners to do just that is through the use of video visitation technology provided by Securus Technologies. Rolled out over the last decade, video visitation technology allows prisoners to stay in nearly constant contact with their loved ones. The system uses a high-fidelity video feed that allows for an experience very close to that of an in-person visitation.
On top of this, Securus has been able to keep rates for the system down to an incredibly low $0.15 per minute. This has resulted in the ability of inmates and their family members to stay in touch like never before. Many inmates are able to call their family members for multiple hours every day, staying in touch with law abiding citizens on the outside of the prison. This allows for these inmates to maintain strong social ties with pro-social citizens, preventing inmates from becoming institutionalized and completely socialized to the prison milieu, which often include some of the worst offenders in the state.
Through its ability to keep the rates low, Securus has been able to significantly increase the number of outgoing phone calls that are made from the majority of prisons where the system is installed.

Two former newspapermen have released a response to the pardon of former sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio, who is regarded by many as one of the worst sheriff’s of recent memory, was pardoned by Donald Trump after he had been convicted by a judge for criminal contempt.
It’s believed that Trump pardoned him because he was one of Trump’s earliest supporters. He had also backed Trump’s ridiculous claims that former President Barack Obama hadn’t been born in Hawaii, in other words the birther conspiracy.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin ran an Arizona independent newspaper called Phoenix New Times. Around 10 years ago their newspaper had been publishing stories about Joe Arpaio such as a tent city he had created and called his very own “concentration camp”, inmates dying in his jails, and other disgusting things he had as sheriff.
Because of this Arpaio sent his deputies to their houses and had them both arrested in the middle of the night and hauled off in unmarked vehicles to one of his prisons.
As a result of these events, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey sued the county and successfully prevailed in their lawsuit. The court awarded them $3.75 million which the placed into the Frontera Fund. This money is now used to defend people across Arizona who have had their rights violated by those in government, especially migrants and other Hispanics.
In the aftermath of Arpaio receiving his pardon, Michael Lacey released a statement saying he agreed with something that Rex Tillerson had said. Namely, that Donald Trump is a complete idiot. The proof, he says, was Trump’s pardon of a person as utterly corrupt as Joe Arpaio.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s college campuses often had protests about the Vietnam War and other issues. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin had both attended Arizona State University during this time before they both dropped out.

The launched a free campus newspaper so that they could set the record straight about the protests, something that the established conservative newspapers of Phoenix had tarnished. Jim Larkin was the chief executive officer of the newspaper and Michael Lacey was the executive editor.
Over time, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin achieved a lot of success with the Phoenix New Times. They were able to build a national network of independent newspapers under the parent company they created, Village Voice Media.
Eventually, they had 17 newspapers in various large markets including New York City. In 2013 they sold it to a new ownership group, Voice Media Group, which was comprised of a number of longtime executives of their own company.
They also called the relationship between Arpaio and Trump as one that marries two utterly corrupt people together. Both Trump and Arpaio have revealed themselves as racists and worse multiple times over the years.
Lime Crime founder, Doe Deere, is known as the Queen of the Unicorns. Why, you may ask? It is because her line of beauty products is designed to allow women to express themselves like true unicorns and stand out majestically as a unicorn in a pack of boring old horses. In fact, Doe Deere admits in a recent article on Guest of a Guest that she was genuinely surprised at how many women flocked to Lime Crime. She expected it to be a very small group of women that loved her makeup. However, it was a huge group of women that not only love Lime Crime, but who make the brand a part of their daily social lives and their social media lives.
The Lime Crime website has an entire panel that features pictures that were shared by real women with the hashtag #howyouwearit. There is no other makeup company that is so focused on sharing images of real women wearing the makeup. The company is truly innovative and much of that innovation comes from Doe Deere’s natural entrepreneurial spirit.
Doe Deere is originally from Russia and moved to the U.S. when she was eighteen to pursue life as a musician. She excelled in the music world for a while before making the change to the world of corporate fashion. Lime Crime came about simply because she was unable to find the types of colors and styles of makeup she wanted to express herself. She found that shades like blue and orange were only available in a cheaply made lipstick. She founded Lime Crime with the goal of using only the best ingredients, while still making shades that were incredibly bright and smooth on the lips.
Today, Lime Crime has massively expanded to include highlighters, hair color, eyeshadow and more. The brand has become globally famous as the go-to company for anyone who wants to truly express themselves through the use of cosmetics. Women everywhere choose Lime Crime not only for the look that the cosmetics give them, but for the solidarity they feel with the tens of thousands of other women who are all equally passionate about Lime Crime.

The cause of arrest was that they had published an article at Village Voice Media that touched on the behavior of Joe Arpaio who used to be the Maricopa County boss. Joe Arpaio had a bad record of oppressing the people who stood with the immigrants.
Larkin and Lacey used the newspaper to fight for the rights of the immigrants since the year 1971. They have always been on the frontline ensuring that all undocumented citizens especially those from the Spanish world are treated well.
The two journalists were from the Hispanic community and happened to have had the largest number of immigrants at Arizona in the United States. Arizona is located at the Mexican border and thus the route for all the immigrants from Mexico and other Spanish speaking communities.
Jim Larkin and Mike Lacey were in their media backgrounds and have for so many years been ion the media fields and have a lot of experience in dealing with people. Their career work is based in Phoenix.
One day when they published an article that touched on the abuse of office by Joe Arpaio. They didn’t know that things would get into that worst situation when they were kidnapped from their homes and later were detained in separate cells. They were being questioned about the people who read their online newspapers. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter
Later their cases were thrown out by the county attorney, Thomas Andrew. They later had to seek legal interpretation regarding what they thought was an unlawful arrest. They decided to go back to court and sued Joe Arpaio, Wilenchick and also the County Attorney.
The case took more than five years and in 2012, the judges argued that there was no proper consultation before the arrest. They ordered a settlement of $3.75 million to the two journalists. This was enough capital for Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund.
