I Admire This Fellow's Ethics.�

��� � � � � � �USA�JAIL - SOME INTERESTING READING
TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO, HE IS THE MARICOPA�COUNTY SHERIFF (ARIZONA) AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

��
These are some of the reasons why:


�
Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the 'tent city jail' to save Arizona from spending tens of millions of dollars on another expensive prison �complex.

He has jail meals down to 20 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He banned smoking and pornographic magazines in the jails, and took away�their weightlifting equipment and cut off all but 'G' movies. He says:�
'They're in jail to pay a debt to society not to build muscles so they can assault�innocent people when they leave.'
�


He started chain gangs to use the inmates to do free work on county and city projects and save taxpayer's money.
�


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 allows the Disney channel and the weather channel.

When asked why the weather channel,�he replied: 'So these morons will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.'
He cut off coffee because it has zero nutritional value and is therefore a waste of taxpayer money. When the inmates complained, he told�them, 'This isn't �the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back.'
He also bought the Newt Gingrich lecture series on US History 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 that actually tells the truth for a change would be welcome and that it might even explain why 95% of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.

With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record for June 2nd�2007), the Associated Press reported: 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 the�Wednesday, hundreds of men �wearing pink boxer shorts were overheard�chatting in the tents, where temperatures reached 128 degrees.
'This is hell. It feels like we live in a furnace,' said Ernesto Gonzales, an inmate for 2�years with 10 more to go. 'It's inhumane.'
Joe Arpaio, who makes his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. 'Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for parole, only to go out and commit more crimes so they can come back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things �many taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.'

The same day he told all the inmates who were complaining of the heat in the tents: 'It's between 120 to 130 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to walk all day in the sun, wearing full battle gear and get shot at, and they have not committed any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!'

Way to go, Sheriff! If all prisons were like yours there would be a lot less crime and we would not be in the current position of running out of prison spaces.

If you agree, or not agree. Do you think we are to soft the way are prisons are RUN?.


Sheriff Joe was just re-elected�as Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona

were well to soft .... people get sent to prison now an dont even care if they get put back in because they can do what they want who wouldnt want an easy free life no bills, free food , a gym ... some ppl proberbly commit crimes as it is an easy place to run to when theres stuff going on in thier lifes .... but it is the same with young offenders prisons ... fair enough they shouldnt be as harsh as they are with the adults, but they get taken to footy games ... go out get x boxs computers ,, they get more than most children who arnt in there have ... they say its a rehabilitation scheme for the kids ... but there rehabilitationg them into believeing life is always liek that .. those kids get that in prison then dont wen they get out .. they will jus want to go bk in an it will come to the stage were they will end up as an adult in prison ... an be stuck in a vicious circle. if teh prisons were the same as ^^^ how he runs them no idiot would seriously want to go bk in an theyd be very careful not to ... you wouldnt have the whole over crowded prison syndrome.

Sherrif Joe is my hero!!! thumbsup
Jail is meant to be hard, not a hotel!
10 Years should mean 10 YEARS and not 5!
Life should be for LIFE
And a death for a death!!
Abusers should all be de-b*ll*cked (i know its castrated, i just like THAT word!!)
Oh, and kids with knives - hand-to-hand combat with me!!
Rant done, thank you all thumbsup
