I gotta tell ya...I am genuinely shocked that:

1.  He has not been removed from his position, sued to the end of the Earth by the ACLU/former inmates under his care...or been placed under investigation by the Justice Dept.

2.  He has not been killed yet.  Seriously, it amazes me to no end that he and his family are still alive.  I cannot imagine that he has an entourage of heavily armed guards around him and his family 100% of the time.  There also has to be more than one former inmate who would gladly go back to prison if it meant causing some sort of pain for him and his family.

1. He's been sued plenty and DOJ is still after him.
2. He travels with a posse of bodyguards

We can only hope they'll manage to throw his ass in jail before he dies of old age

Sheriff Joe's patriotism would be much more impressive if he believed in things like the Constitution.

A. Thank the Snowbirds who don't have to pay for Schmoe Arpayoso's crap
B. He has been sued, multiple times
C. justice Department dropped their investigation a while back.

As for 2, Joe's probably hired more people to fake assasinate him than anybody else.

What's his cost per inmate?

I think you people are being entirely too hard on Sheriff Joe. He and the rest of the GOP are not the fascist assholes many of you imagine. They are reaching out every single day and extending an olive branch of peace and inclusiveness. Today's GOP wants everyone to know that they are not heartless bastards with souls as black as an unlit dungeon.

You libtards are delusional in thinking that today's conservative leadership has an deep-rooted hatred of women, science, LGBT persons, Hispanics, blacks, and the poor.
You people are failing to see conservative compassion in action.
Why just the other day I heard of a GOP outreach program here in the south. Right-wing Republicans, with the help of the cast of Duck Dynasty, have begun a program to take inner city kids on white water adventures....

Dear Sheriff Joe:

"You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments."

Exodus 20:4-6

What a farking dick. Food without salt, especially when served to those who have had their tastebuds manipulated by big food their whole life, is nearly inedible. Add in the quality they serve prisoners and they're getting dog food.

Yep. It's like the whole 'WE NEED TO DRUG TEST THOSE WELFARE farkERS' kick that retarded conservatives have been on lately.  It was done. Not a single person was caught failing, any time that's been tried.

Friends wife is suuuuper conservative/hardline GOP (and married an Indian guy, so that's odd to me), throws out all of those ideas. After the duck dynasty thing where she was screaming about 1st amendments and freedom of speech/religion/ducks, and I very calmly dropped a 'freedom of speech protects you from the government, not the results of your speech or anything in the private sector' in her, she must have unfriended me because I haven't seen her since.

Kinda miss seeing updates on my buddy and the kid, but no real loss on her other posts (hint: if I needed a faux news condenser of talking points I'd just kill myself).

After spending four years in jail awaiting trial, Saville was acquitted by a Maricopa County Superior Court jury, which found that Arpaio's detectives had helped buy the bomb parts themselves and had entrapped Saville as part of a publicity stunt. Saville filed suit against Arpaio and Maricopa County for wrongful arrest. In 2008, the suit was settled, with Maricopa County paying Saville $1.6 million.

When the FIBBIES do that, it's called protecting America.

Your statement only proves that Sheriff Arpaio's methods are not only necessary, but insufficient. Hopefully, he will implement further strict standards in the future, and hopefully he will continue to do so until violent crime begins to decline in the district.

I had the pleasure of spending a night in his hotel a while back. Inhumane is an understatement and a minor crime earns you a cold night on a concrete floor, lights on all the time. No blankets and food after about 30 hours that my dog wouldn't eat. He is not a good person, we treat pow's better then this guy does Americans who largely have not been found guilty of anything.

Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore
© John Prine


While digesting Reader's Digest
In the back of a dirty book store,
A plastic flag, with gum on the back,
Fell out on the floor.
Well, I picked it up and I ran outside
Slapped it on my window shield,
And if I could see old Betsy Ross
I'd tell her how good I feel.

Chorus:
But your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.
They're already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don't like killin'
No matter what the reason's for,
And your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.

Well, I went to the bank this morning
And the cashier he said to me,
"If you join the Christmas club
We'll give you ten of them flags for free."
Well, I didn't mess around a bit
I took him up on what he said.
And I stuck them stickers all over my car
And one on my wife's forehead.
Repeat Chorus:

Well, I got my window shield so filled
With flags I couldn't see.
So, I ran the car upside a curb
And right into a tree.
By the time they got a doctor down
I was already dead.
And I'll never understand why the man
Standing in the Pearly Gates said...

"But your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.
We're already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don't like killin'
No matter what the reason's for,
And your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more."

Understand, but that doesn't change the fact that is is.  And seriously, 7 days of ACTUAL bread and water would be obviously criminal.  This is Phoenix, not some small town in the backwaters of Mississippi where the warden gets to do whatever he wants and nobody can stop him.

Sheriff Joe is a true American Hero.

These people are in jail for committing a crime.

He is insuring they learn their lesson and be productive.

It's been proven time and again most people are in jail because the lack structure and morals.

Well, I can't think of a better way to teach them structure and morals than what he's doing.

All you libtards go solve crime in your own state.
Give your crooks 3 course meals and teach them how to build knives and take drugs.

Leave AZ alone, it works for them and the people there overwhelmingly support them.  You are not tolerant of that, what a shame.

The reason the prison loaf is outrageous in this case is because these prisoners did not ask for the flags in their cells--Sheriff Dickwad mandated them. IMHO, it would be different if prisoners had requested the flags and then defaced them. This case is as horrifying as it would be had Sheriff Twatwaffle put the prisoners on "bread" and water for tearing down an "Out of Order" sign on a bathroom door.
