If I was a taxpayer in Oregon, I'd be freakin' out!

If that jail was filled to capacity, would the inmates be watching March Madness on televisions nicer than yours...(lol)? :wink:

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 letting 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' 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:

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
taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for
themselves.

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

I have a friend who is a Corrections Officer in the prison system in Arizona, and they don't put up with any crap there, that's for sure. As it should be.

I like the severe treatment, they should have to do "hard time"
