Arpaio willing to expand jail tents for immigrants

Arpaio willing to expand jail tents for immigrants

PHOENIX (AP) - Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he plans to house illegal immigrants convicted under Arizona's new immigration law in tents in the desert.

About 1,300 U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants are serving time in Arpaio's tents for convictions for theft, domestic violence, drunken driving, identity theft, human smuggling and other crimes.

Arpaio says he now has vacant spots in the tents for about 1,000 prisoners and is willing to add on more tents in the future to handle the expected influx from the new law.

Arpaio is known for pushing the bounds for how local law enforcement agencies can confront illegal immigration.

The sheriff's office has housed inmates in canvas tents during Phoenix's triple-digit summer heat since August 1993.

Arpaio is a criminal who belongs in his own jail.

If a man can make you mad just by talking, then he is far brighter than you.

Arpaio is just

another fine example of an American doing things that need to be done and nobody else will do, just like Gov. Brewer.....Treating criminals like criminals........holy fuck, what a concept!!!

He makes money for his pocket using prisoners. He feeds prisoners spoiled bologna and pockets all the money he saves by not feeding the people descent food. He makes them live in hot ass tents in that hot ass place. He is a sadist. Ttrue the prisoners are criminals, but they are still fucking people.
I had my share of sleeping in hot assed tents in the NAM so I know how hot they get.

Is that what he

Is that what he does..................Goooooooooooo Arpaio I'd vote him in any day, make those POS criminals pay for there crimes. Maybe you forgot Our boys are over in Iraq in worse heat.
By the way he pockets none of the money, he doesn't get it to start with.

dockit, you are mistaken. All sheriffes are given X amount to feed the prisoners. All he saves from that amount he pockets. If you do not belive me, call your local jail and ask.
There are NO boys in Iraq, they are MEN.

He saves Arizona Millions I've seen the report, and not all in Iraq are men, and boys is a figure of speech learn the difference.

Arpaio is my Hero

he feeds them sandwiches, makes them wear pink prison clothes, they burnt down there own living quarters in a prison riot so he makes them sleep in tents, he has to give them cable tv so he has on the weather channel and disney. He also has both men and women chain gangs so nobody can complain about him being sexist. When the aclu wanted to sue him on the tent thing he told them it's good enough for are services members in Iraq it's damn well good enough for prisoners and are service members didnt committe any crimes. But let's not forget these people are CRIMINALS. He also told them if you don't like it here behave so you don't have to come back.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
