OT-Toughest Sheriff in the United States



TOO HOT FOR ARIZONA CONVICTS ???

It's even hotter than usual in Phoenix, 116 degrees sets a new record,
the Associated Press reports:

About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment
at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to
their government-issued pink boxer shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on
their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees
inside the week before. Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as
sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks.

"It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzo't, an inmate who
has lived in the tents for 1 1/2 years. "It's inhumane."

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago
started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is
not one bit sympathetic.

He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in
Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they didn't commit
any crimes, so shut your damned mouths. "



KIND OF PUTS THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE DOESN'T IT?



YA GOTTA LOVE THIS SHERIFF...

Re: OT-Toughest Sheriff in the United States

I love that guy's methods. Prison SHOULD be miserable so you never want to go back. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

I wonder if he drives one of these:

Re: OT-Toughest Sheriff in the United States

I have always loved the way he runs that jail.

And to reiterate if is that un comfortable maybee they won't want to come back.

I saw him on a interview where he was being accused of cruelty. He has a great outlook.

Re: OT-Toughest Sheriff in the United States

I was there for a Sheriffs' conference in 98 and talked with him for awhile, did a tour of tent city and the down-town jail. He's quite a man. Indiana law prohibits running a jail like he does, but I'm in favor of most of his methods. He brags that he spends $1.50 per day to feed his guard dogs and $.40 to feed an inmate. When asked why he spends more on the dogs than the inmates, he said: "Those dogs never broke into an old widow's home and stole her TV." Gotta love him.

Re: OT-Toughest Sheriff in the United States

Makes me wonder what sort of crimes those guys committed. I could see 140 degrees being cruel and unusual....just my 2c.

Re: OT-Toughest Sheriff in the United States

That is awesome!!! [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img] Thats the way it should be. Then you wouldn't wat to go there instead of an "I don't care attitude".

Pablo.......no offence but I take it you've never been around too many of these type of people. Ones with no moral value that would rob your home, rape you mother or sister, or drive over you and never feel the first bit of remorse. I highley doubt that they have $5 shoplifters there.

I think I have a new hero. [img]images/graemlins/goodpost.gif[/img]

Even if they do, as Deputy Barney Fife would say: "Nip it! You gotta nip it in the bud!" After a few days in that solar-powered hoosegow, that $5 shoplifter is going to think twice before lifting another $5 piece of goods or raising his sights to bigger and better items.

If only we could better ensure all crooks received their just rewards - the Sheriff's penal system is not the problem, it's the overall ability to catch and punish/penalize the perps - all of 'em. Too many get away w/o getting their due. (That is NOT to say we start suspending Constitutional safeguards and summarily executing bad guys... [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] That is NOT the answer - I honestly do not know what a palatable answer would be to our overly secular society today.)
