All this and still the inmates come. Must not be too bad.
And I have read that his SWAT team has some issues with minor crimes and getting the wrong address, one which resulted in a big house fire from a flash bang.
All inmates in VA who go out on work detail get cold bologna sandwiches every day. I know because they wash my medics and clean my bathrooms every other Wednesday. And VA is a state that kisses their butts on humane practice.
I used to work for VA corrections. One thing I agree with is letting them work out. Better free weights than me when they get bothered.

Sheriff Joe is one of my heroes. He has been one of my heroes for years.
I would vote for him for President if he ran. Hell, I'd vote for him for just about any office he ran for. He knows how to get things done and the liberals hate him for it.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
With what I've heard, I agree with him. It all sounds good, but it's hard to make any real calls about his character without knowing all of the facts (most of which none of us will ever know).
What I can say is that, at least around here, everything that I've heard has been in agreement with what he's doing. Which is a good swing from the general ACLU stance most people take. So, at the very least, whether he is an ethical person or not, it's good to hear someone going against the grain and not getting bad mouthed because of it.
If you think his jail is inhumane,you need to be incercerated in mexico,or a third world country where you might ssee a judge years after you are arrested if you're lucky and get railroaded in a kangaroo court.A lot of things that people do time for here in some countrys they take em out back and shoot them in the head,bullets are cheaper than feeding ya rice even though it's infested with maggots

it is not cruel and unusual to force criminals to live in GP mediums. its quite humain and very common. its as if he's running a one man "inquisition" its fair humain and it works. unlike the huggy feely crap peopl like pushing these days.
