Default Re: Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio puts inmates on bread and water for destroying US flag

I support Sheriff Arpaio. I work in corrections I deal with the real "assholes" for a living. Shitbags that would whore out their own Mother if it benefited them in any way. Guys that'll beat the piss out of someone and put them into the hospital because the other inmate didn't give them the peanut butter packet off of their breakfast tray. The system is getting too soft. Inmates all over the nation get more and more privileges handed to them. Is jail a fun place to be? No it's not because having your freedom taken away sucks. On that same token however, it's not as bad of a place to be as inmates would have you think. My jail offers commissary like you wouldn't believe. All means of candy, sweets, and food can be purchased. They can buy portable radios, croc shoes, soda pop, writing and drawing utensils... just about everything. They get cable television, boiling hot water commissary sinks that allow them to make hot coffee and ramen noodles, access to a recreation yard, three meals a day on top of their commissary, medical care, dental care, access to mental health services, and access to a full on library of books. They also get access to classes for everything from Anger Management and Alcoholics Anonymous, to GED classes.

And our inmates don't like county jail, they WANT to go to prison when they're sentenced because the prisons offer even move privileges than we do. It's a fucking joke, and it's precisely the reason why so many people in this country are incarcerated. It's a revolving door. These guys don't want to work for a living. Sure they get billed for jail but how many of them actually pay their bills? They just keep on coming back over and over again because it's a way to get out of working for a living like those of us who abide by the law.

Honestly Joe Arpaio isn't as bad as the media portrays him to be either. Does the media mention that Sheriff Arpaio gives the inmates of tent city access to air conditioned buildings when it gets hot, or that he hands out ice cream? Nope, he's just portrayed as a cruel, asshole that mistreats people and allegedly violates their civil rights. Fuck their civil rights. These shit heads didn't care about their victim's civil rights when they broke into their home, stole their belongings, assaulted, maimed, raped, or abused their victims. How about the guys that have 3+ DUIs and they STILL continue to get behind the wheel of a vehicle whilst intoxicated? Ever seen an accident caused by a drunk driver or lost a relative because some asshole was being selfish and driving drunk? I've witnessed that crap, so I don't feel an ounce of sympathy for people who get thrown in jail of their own accord. These people put themselves into situations that end up with them being arrested.

I treat inmates with respect as long as they are respectful with me. Respect is always earned and not just given. Inmates generally understand that. I actually enjoy some of the conversations I have with inmates. They are people like me and you but nonetheless they deserve to be punished not coddled. If Sheriff Arpaio is profiling I don't agree with that, but I do agree with his methodology in regards to running his jail.

Here's a little video to show you exactly the kinds of people that those of us in corrections have to deal with for a living. WARNING: This video is very graphic and depicts an inmate stabbing and killing another inmate. Ask yourself, are these the guys we should be coddling with free cable, video games, and commissary out the ass?

I wouldn't expect @Bane to respect the law

I most certainly respect the law.

It's just that it has to be mandated by the guy with the fu manchu first.

No, those birds think they know what's best for the country and possibly for humanity itself and that's wrong.

Though they have a right to speak for themselves, they don't speak for me; either as an American (whom THEY don't know) or as a fellow member of the human race.

i'm not aware of arizona passing any FEDERAL laws. what they want is the already EXISTING FEDERAL LAWS to be enforced.

Found a school photo of a young Arpaio:

I'm sorry, but you misspelled B-A-L-T-I-M-O-R-E.
