    Default American Prison

    Just found this in an old e-mail

    We need this guy running our penal system.




    TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO - HE IS THE MARICOPA
    COUNTY SHERIFF IN ARIZONA USA AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER. THIS SHOWS WHY


    Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the "tent city jail" in Arizona. 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."

    With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 (46.6 c) 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 (58.8 c) 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, long ago started making his prisoners wear pink and eat bologna sandwiches. He told all of the inmates: "It's 120 (48.5 c) 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!"

    If all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and fewer repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes not live in luxury on taxpayers money until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime.

If they starve to death - as an adult, that's their decision and free to make it. Assign a dollar figure to their crime, and pay them a small amount, say 50 cents/hour. Then they make the sorts of items that are only imported to Aus such as t shirts and flip flops... Build park structures, fix up the homes of desperate people, test cosmetics on them not animals... When they've done their days work they then are required to go for counseling and or education - no free time of any kind. They step out of line they're fined - and there sentence is increased... Rape another prisoner and they then will be required to wear a chastity belt for the rest of the their stay in club fed. If they feel that's not right and say... crap in their chastity belt... stick em in the shower and turn the fire hose on em. I could write a friggin book from all the time I've thought about political and prison reform (did I say I have a boring job). I could write 10 books to be honest the subjects get me so wound up:mad: . What pisses me off even more are the F&CKIN bleeding hearts that fight these sorts of common sense reforms. I shouldn't have look at this thread now I'm all worked up.
