Sheriff Joe At IT Again.

Recommended Posts

     You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well.........

 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

The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. 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 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 T ENTS 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 Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear,

     But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes, So Shut Your 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.

     

     Sheriff Joe was just reelected Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona

     

     

     HE SHOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT

                                                                                    ED

Yes, those of us who watch the news and read the newspapers know of Sheriff Joe.

He is a great guy with outstanding ideas.

I wonder how he would run a big city school division?

A guy did this in our neighboring county. He painted huge  teddy bears on the pink walls. There wasn't AC there either.

If you ask me the guy's a genius. I don't agree with him forcing his political views on the prisoners, but I can overlook that considering all the other great things he's done. Saving taxpayers millions, putting the prisoners to work instead of letting them sit around all day, the farming and animal shelter programs: GREAT STUFF. And he's right, it ain't the Ritz, and I applaud him for making prisoners not want to come back, as well as giving them contructive things to do while they are there.

Sounds like a no nonsense guy. I've always thought it was ridiculous that inmates get cable tv. Some people who haven't committed crimes don't even get cable, let alone have it paid for by the taxpayers...

Also, why do inmates at so many prisons get weight sets? Doesn't that just allow inmates to get strong enough to become more dangerous? Aren't weights capable of being used as weapons? I think exercise is fine, but make them do sit ups or push ups, don't give them weights so they can become excessively strong to a point where they can more easily injure other prisoners and guards...

While I agree he is a great guy and I would like to see more elected officials have the balls hes got and get things done.  I somehow think the ruinnation of our nation, the comunist bleeding heart let everyone go free  ACLU will eventually get there way and ruin it.

Don't be naive, McCarthy suspected everyone of communism. The ACLU has firm historical roots in Marxist communism. They make no apologies for it.

FWIW- http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45959

Sherrif Joe is a hero, patriot and courageous servant of the public. It will be interesting to see how long he can get away with it.

Prison shouldn't be a free ride.  I have a cousin who prefers jail to work because he is lazy.  No bills, no work, free food, free shelter.  He says its like retiring to a rough neighborhood.  I bet he wouldn't like it if he had to groom pets and wear pink.  Or work a hog farm...that will rehabilitate the worst of society. ;D

Way to go, Joe!!! I read somewhere that it costs the CA taxpayer $40K+ per year to house a prisoner! As I see it, that means CA taxpayers are paying each person in jail a $40K+ per year salary while there are hard working honest folks who can't make that much legally! There's SOMETHING WRONG with that picture, in MY opinion!

Apparently whatever he's saved the taxpayers in $$$ he's lost in lawsuits due to prisoner deaths and abuses.  Not saying I don't agree with him, but in today's day and age a little critical thinking would do even more good.

x2. They did what they did so they need to do there time. I agree 100% with the man, if he makes it a literal living hell then there is no way they will want to go back.

      A "normal" prison i guess you could say has cable tv with more than 2 channels, smoking,porno,coffee and alot of other things to do so when prisoners are released and are committing crimes again i dont think they truly think about going back. If you make a place as bad as Sheriff Joe does then when they go out and commit crimes they will think about how incredibly bad it was and think twice.
