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


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 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 re-elected 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.  Immigration 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. 





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!'

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.

This type of 'arrangement' is going on across the country. Prisoners are being used as cheap slave labor. Private businesses can't compete with slave labor. While it may sound like a win to some, it is actually indentured servitude. The more folks the 'system' can jail, the greater opportunities for slave labor.

Maybe we should promote 'SLAVES FOR SALE'!

Inmates work for less than Illegal Aliens, yet Slaves are cheaper than Inmates as the cost of correctional facility expenses is enormous!

Like the man said, "this isn't the Ritz/Carlton, if you don't like it don't come back"!!! At least they are not putting their lives in danger like the soldiers. You GO JOE!!!

Totally agree---it is the prototype program for the rest of us so-called terr$#ists...the camps all over the U.S. just waiting for US. Why not start in the federal prisons where all the politicians go?

I don't necessarily agree with his physiological processes, but economically, it sounds like this man has made some smart and productive moves, but no matter what there will always be a down side just because of who we are.

Like Sheriff Joe stated, this isn't the Ritz, and it shouldn't be at others expense for REAL criminals.

My concern or question would be, how many so called inmates does he have locked up for so called administrative crimes where there was no victim or harm or no loss of property?

We all know or should know that there is MEGA dollars, (frauds) in the Justus system which in reality is nothing more then a corporation, just like the prisons. I believe we have more people behind bars in the land of the free and home of the brave, then any other country in the world. I was always told that crime does not pay, but that depends on which side of the bench you are sittin on.

When our conscious is low enough to harm or damage others and property for what ever reason, we need to learn that the universal laws work with mathematical precision without fail. The corrupt Justus system is soon coming to and end.

I think that this sheriff has done more good then not and if he abuses his office and power, the universal laws work with mathematical precision without fail, for everyone.

I want to ask you all a question... why has Joe not arrested Obumer??? Why has he found A L L the evidence of many crimes and not arrested him... There are way too many people going trough the motions to keep us all appeased and then .they do nothing..... the illuminati would allow this to bring order out of chaos. It reminds me of the song Tomorrow....

He doesn't have the power to arrest the POTUS, that's why. Dang people think about it! Liberals would literally lose their minds and try to kill him if he even tried to arrest Obummer. Again, he doesn't have the power in the first place. Only a Provost Marshall has that power.

Joe has not arrested Obummer because Joe is not a Sheriff in the Arizona State Republic.

Joe is a Sheriff in the State of Arizona Corporation and I guarantee he is not going to arrest the CEO of the White House Corporation.

Look at Joe's badge; it clearly says State of Arizona. Joe is not a constitutional Sheriff; he is a corporate pretender.
