Nice...now our tax dollars can go to support this guy for the rest of his life. They should give guilty convicts like this the death sentence..

I really wish our justice system would go back to the "Old Days". If we were to make criminals do hard manual labor, then maybe the person would think twice before committing the crime. This nonsense of getting free room and board, workout room, free college education and so on at the tax payers expense is totally wrong. Meanwhile those that are decent hard working, law abiding citizens struggle to make a living, especially now days, can't even think about getting a college degree or higher eduacation to better themselves due to the cost. Make these people work on our infastructure that is in desperate need of overhaul and repair. If I am way out of line here or don't have a clue what I am talking about, please correct me. But this is how I see it. Yes some people do need some help in turning their lives around and a second chance, I understand that. But when you commit a crime knowingly, you need to do hard time. I believe this would help our economy out a little if we got our moneys worth out of the bad guys.

They should use the same methods as Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County Arizona. Here is an excerpt from his bio on the Maricopa county web site. This guy is the MAN!!!

Arpaio has over 10,000 inmates in his jail system. In August, 1993, he started the nation’s largest Tent City for convicted inmates. Two thousand convicted men and women serve their sentences in a canvas incarceration compound. It is a remarkable success story that has attracted the attention of government officials, presidential candidates, and media worldwide.

Of equal success and notoriety are his chain gangs, which contribute thousands of dollars of free labor to the community. The male chain gang, and the world’s first-ever female and juvenile chain gangs, clean streets, paint over graffiti, and bury the indigent in the county cemetery.

Also impressive are the Sheriff’s get tough policies. For example, he banned smoking, coffee, movies, pornographic magazines, and unrestricted TV in all jails. He has the cheapest meals in the U.S. too. The average meal costs about 15 cents, and inmates are fed only twice daily, to cut the labor costs of meal delivery. He even stopped serving them salt and pepper to save tax payers $20,000 a year.

Another program Arpaio is very wellknown for is the pink under shorts he makes all inmates wear. Years ago, when the Sheriff learned that inmates were stealing jailhouse white boxers, Arpaio had all inmate underwear dyed pink for better inventory control. The same is true for the Sheriff’s handcuffs. When they started disappearing, he ordered pink handcuffs as a replacement. And later, when the Sheriff learned the calming, psychological effects of the color pink—sheets, towels, socks— everything inmates wear, except for the old-fashioned black and white striped uniform, were dyed pink.
