    Sheriff Joe Arpaio

    SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN!
    Oh, there's MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe!
    Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay.

    The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays.& nbsp; Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who'd like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.

    The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million.

    Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered, and current on all shots, in great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him. Cost us $78.

    The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.

    I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand. He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 - $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later. We have six trees in our yard from the Prison.
    Yup, he was reelected last year with 83% of the vote.

    Now he's in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural, that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn't doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He's kind of a 'Git-R Dun' kind of Sheriff.

    TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO, HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY: Sheriff Joe Arpaio (In Arizona) who created the 'Tent City Jail': 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 Isn't The Ritz/Carlton.....If You Don't Like It, Don't Come Back.'
    He bought Newt Gingrich's 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.
    More On The Arizona Sheriff: 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 year. '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 e Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear, But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes, So Shut Your Damned Mouths!'

    Way To Go, Sheriff!

    Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders.

    Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

    Almost couldn't believe this but Snopes confirms: Urban Legends Reference Pages: Sheriff Joe Arpaio

    FYI he didn't actually take over control of the entire animal shelter system in Maricopa County, but he did institute the program that you mentioned. So 98% true anyway.

    I like "Git-R-Done" politics.

    Peace,

    I've seen him interviewed on TV.
    He is like a hero of mine.
    The majority of the inmates actually really respect him.
    Truly a great American.

    A video of Sheriff Joe
    I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.

    We need more LEO like him! Of course then we need to get rid of the bleeding hearts that think jail is a place to read, lift weights, watch TV. If prisons were used as punishment again instead of a home off the streets, maybe a few more criminals would decide to stay away.

    Thumbs up

    Indeed, it isn't the Ritz. Don't like it? Don't come back. So long as the treatment isn't inhumane (and working to defray one's cost and burden to society ain't that), then it sounds far, far preferable to the four-star treatment doled out most everywhere else.

    Thank God there are still people in public office who aren't politicians!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Frankly I have never understood the acclaim this man receives. I've watched him on TV many times, followed news stories about him for many years. If a small fraction of the stunts he has been reported to have pulled are true, I think he is unsuited for the position.

    It might sound "cute" and just to put prisoners in tents, cloth them in girl's underwear, and feed them the worst sort of food that can be bought for a few cents per person per day, but it isn't sensible.

    The guy gets elected and elected and reelected by appealing to the most base instinct in the electorate to punish wrongdoers without mercy or restraint.

    Whatever good might come of that, it is going to be offset by a hardening of those who have been harshly treated.

    And then, there is the entire issue of where cruel and unusual punishment starts and ends.
