    Default Sheriff Joe is at it again.

    Wouldn't you just love to find another like him?



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

    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 reelected 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. Immigrations 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.

    TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO


    HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA
    COUNTY SHERIFF

    AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED
    OVER AND OVER THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY:

    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's done lots more, but wanted you to know about his animal shelter program. But in order for that to succeed, you have to have inmates that know who ALPHA is. Apparently, there's little doubt in Sheriff Joe's prison.

    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    Hey U.B. Texas doesn't have anyone in politics much like Sheriff Joe. Given half a chance, I'd vote for a guy like that for alot higher office than sheriff. Imagine how they'd hate him in Washington!
