Yanks have the right idea (did i realy say that!!!)

Well well, far be it from me to ever be complimentary to the Americans, Hey they won WWII single handed and we werent even there? But in this instance, we have a "good old boy" with some bright ideas for dealing with criminal scum....

Why can't our prisons be like this!!!


These are some of the reasons why:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the "tent city jail" to save Arizona from

spending tens of million of dollars on another expensive prison


He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates

for them.

He banned smoking and porno magazines in the jails, and took away

their weightlifting equipment and cut off all but educational 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


He took away cable TV until he found out they were allowed it under "human rights legislation" but he 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 which just set a new record for June 2nd), the Associated Press reports:

About 2,000 inmates are now living in a barbed- wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail and they have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing pink boxer shorts were 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."

Wednesday 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 space whilst having to let scum go free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
