Prisoners In A REAL Prison -Shocking-

Postby jayday » Tue May 02, 2006 6:43 am

Got this in an e-mail...Thought I'd share it with you guys....Hopefully this isn't a repeat :-/

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, 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."

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 tents 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 damned 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 taxpayer's money and enjoy things some taxpayer's can't afford to have for themselves.

If you agree, pass this on. If not, just delete it.

Sheriff Joe was just reelected Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Seen this before, but a good read nonetheless. The real crime will be if/when this guy does not get reelected.

This is one of those rare Internet/Email stories that is true. I remember reading this some time ago and thinking for sure that it was too good to be true, but it really is.

The stuff about Iraq was added recently, though. This story dates back a year or two prior to the Gulf War.

That guy rocks. But even as conservative as I am this would torture even me:

He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.

Now that I think about it I think I saw a documentary on this prison and the warden on either the History Channel or Discovery, I can't remember.

Yeah, I've seen pieces on the news about the guy. I'm all for it. I hate the fact that prisoners are cuddled and allowed to sue for cruel and unusual punishment because the mac n cheese was cold... :-t

Good for him...prison is supposed to be a crime-deterrent. I can't imagine anyone who has been there before has broken the law again without thinking about going back to the tents.

hopefullly these guys aren't in there for traffic tickets. surely these are murderers and rapists and the like. and that's fine with me. but i think this might be a bit severe for anyone who isn't a career criminal.
