Sheriff Joe

You may have seen this b4; about the Sheriff that runs a tight ship. It checks out as true at the following site: http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/m/miracopjail.htm


Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing it RIGHT!!

He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.
He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails.
Took away their weights.
Cut off all but "G" movies.
He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects. Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.
He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again but only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel. When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.
He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.
When the inmates complained, he told them.....this is a good one......"This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."
He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.
furthermore:

With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set 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 Zanzot, 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 have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes . . . so shut your damned mouths.

Reformation the hard way. Make it a putrid bitch to be there, not just an 'institution' as Shawshank explains it.

Melesse, my girlfriend just finished reading Nephilim. I should read it shortly, but I've had my share of alien books for at least a month.

Haha, always nice to use a rule breaker to teach others to obey the law.

Newt is fined $300,000 by the ethics committee for violating House rules barring use of tax-exempt foundations for political purposes.


I don't have a lot of sympathy for convicted criminals, but the sheriff's still a maroon.

I think the good Sheriff is actually on to something, in principle, although he does seem to be taunting the fine lines. Nevertheless, from my experience, the flip side of it is this: It's not uncommon to hear the coffee shop braintrust complain about "country club" prisons. I used to bite into that until I worked for a short time in a state-of-the-art medium security "correctional facility". For starters, I cannot adequately describe the twinges of helpless dread that kept gnawing at my insides once the gate shut behind me, persisting until I was once again on the outside. This struck me as odd, too, since I knew fully well that I would be leaving at the end of the day.

As far as I'm concerned, the coffee shop braintrust has nothing to worry about. I don't care how "nice" they make it, prison is not a place I ever want to be. Jail is even worse, at least from the ones I've seen. Traditionally, jail is for short-term incarceration, although with prison overcrowding, more and more sheriffs are leasing cellspace to house prison convicts.

Amen.
