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.
