    This guy needs to run! Do you think he would have some good ideas about handling terrorists?

    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 said okay.

    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 S heriff..




    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 Gan gs 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.'

    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 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.

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

    We had all that here in the prison system. All the vegetables were raised by inmates, and they had the blue ribbon cows evetry year at the state fair.

    They had their own shoe shop, and repaired them several times before tossing.

    They had an auto body shop teaching inmates a useful trade. local body shops used to send paint jobs out there for economy work.

    Some liberals (I believe), years ago complained about "unfair competition with the private sector" and the garden was first to go. then the shoe shop and the barn. They closed the auto shop a couple years ago.

    NOw everything comes from vendors and I would like to see who gets the deals.

    He'd be great but don't take our sheriff away from Maricopa County. He'd get watered down as the President.

    We could use Sherif Joe in San Antonio, Tx. He would have a field day here in Bexar Co. Tx.

    He also has the lowest recidivism rate in the nation. Most people who go to the Maricopa County Jail don't come back. Jail is not to be a pleasant place, a place that if you spend time there you say, "Hey I wont repeat the behavior that got me her because this place sucks!!"

    Jails with big screen TV's, hot home made meals, movie nights, and all the comforts of home do not make an impression on the criminals!!!! It is time the ACLU, DNC, and the rest of the Lib's face the fact that jails and prisons need to be jails and prisons not hotels with room service.

    I did some training at the Maricopa County jail in 2006 and found that if all jails were run this way I could leave my doors unlocked and the keys in my car because the price you pay for stealing my stuff is not worth it.

    Just my two cents worth.

    The Rapper TMZ or whatever his name is spent some time in Joe's jail and tent city and tells people he don't even want to fly over Arizona anymore if he can help it ... So, now that he is gone he is "Happy" and so are the people who live here ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    yet... There are people who bitch about him. We have crimnals moving to Oregon because they know that when they get caught nothing will happen. The fools from our county went and looked atJ Sheriff Joes set up. The verdict that the idiots came up with was that it wouldn't "work" where we live. Unf###ing real...
    In my town if a scumbag rapes a woman but doesn't bash her brains in during the attack, will be out of jail within 24 hours. Jeff

    That is simply foolish. It would mean too much change! We need gradual, effective change like we are getting with Obama.
