SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO MARICOPA COUNTY, AZ IS AT IT AGAIN!

I am sure you have read this in the many pretend your working emails, but I agree with the Sheriff. Many say he is an up and coming Nazi or Slave owner. I say, until your a victim of violent crime, keep your mouth shut. And if you have been a victim of violent crime or assault, then you already know those prisoners deserve to be there!!

I have bolded my main areas of agreement with Joe Arpaio:

Maricopa County was spending approximately $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs, When Sheriff Joe Arpaio offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors agreed. The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the animals. Every animal under the care of the Sheriff is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give educational 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 even had them place in dog shows. The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million.


The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working in the animal shelters, 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. Many have long wondered when others around the country would take a look at the way the Sheriff runs his jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work. They grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing most of the work and harvesting by hand. He has a good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer for the Christmas tree nursery, where the prisoners also work. You can buy a Christmas tree from the Sheriff's Department for $6 - $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later.

Sheriff Joe was re-elected last year with an 83% vote margin. But he's in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted his department buses and vehicles with a mural, that has a special hot line telephone number posted where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens. The U.S. Immigrations & Customs Enforcement wasn't doing enough he said, so he had 40 deputies specifically trained for enforcing immigration laws, started up his own hot line, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling illegals back to the border. He's kind of a 'git-it-done' type of person.
To those of you who are not familiar with Joe Arpaio, he is the Maricopa County Sheriff in Phoenix, Arizona who keeps getting elected over and over.
The following is some of the reasons why:


Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the 'Tent City Jail'. He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for the meals.

He stopped smoking and the distribution of porno magazines in his jails. He also took away the prisoner's weights, and cut off all but 'G' movies.

He also 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 their cable TV until he found out there was a Federal Court Order that required cable TV for the jails so he reinstalled the cable TV system again....only subscribing to the Disney Channel and the Weather Channel.

When asked why the Weather Channel, he replied, "So they will know how hot it might be while they are working on my chain gangs."

He cut out the coffee in his jails since it has zero nutritional value.

When the inmates complained, he has told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton...if you don't like it, don't come back!" (Victoria Says GOOO JOE!!!!!)

He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on videotapes 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 hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees set a new record), the Associated Press reported: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County jail were given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts.


Hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside a few days earlier. 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 about 1 year. "It's inhumane." he said.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic.

He has 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 don't complain and furthermore, they didn't commit any crimes, So shut your damned mouths!' ( Once again GOOO JOE!!!)


Way to go, Sheriff!

Maybe if all jails were like his, there would be a lot less crime and repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes....not live in luxury until it's time for parole, then go out and commit another crime so they can live on taxpayers money and enjoy some items that many taxpayers can't afford themselves. (Victoria says: YA FREAKIN' THINK??)

I suppose this post may be that roller coaster of emotion thing and I'm railing up the rage?
