Poll: Should Sheriff Joe Let Tent City Inmates Watch the Super Bowl?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is world famous as "America's Toughest Sheriff". Inmates weak pink underwear, eat bologna sandwiches that cost only 40 cents per meal (and for which Joe charges them!) . In Summer inmates bake in Tent City, which recently celebrated its 20th year. When Sheriff Joe put up flags in prisoner's cells, he warned if any are defaced that inmate would get only bread and water for a full week -- and 38 inmates have been punished so far.

But Joe also has a heart of gold. He spends a huge amount of time helping animals,  giving indoor space to rescued animals, setting up a no-kill shelter for them, while hardened criminals got sent to the tents. Joe even housed inmates who are veterans in a separate area indoors, providing those with PTSD with special programs to get back on their feet.

Perhaps with sympathy in mind, this afternoon Sheriff Joe asked his fans on social media a question:

Why?

Are all the Military in faraway, remote places able to watch the super bowl?

Depends on their behavior.

A little punishment or reward action.

Only the ones that are managing to behave well. It should be a reward for good behavior and a stick to punish bad behavior.

Kind of find it hard to believe this is even in his thought process.

Unless, of course, he tells them they can and if one of his guests screws up, take the privilege from all.

How can the U.N. Human Rights commission look itself in the mirror not stopping the good sheriff from dressing his inmates in pink?

No.

To quote Gunnery Sergent Hartman:
“You are ALL EQUALLY WORTHLESS!”

If they wanted to watch the Super Bowl, they shouldn’t have committed the crime.

Definitely! It is even bigger on bases overseas. I spent 10 years overseas and each base regardless of Iraq, Korea, Italy always showed the Superbowl.

Yes for the Super Bowl. It is good for morale and takes their mind off jail for a while

But no World Cup soccer championships for the illegals

Funny story. I was working in a locked male psych unit years ago. No smoking allowed.

Ten minutes before superbowl kickoff we found smoke in a bathroom.

Off with the tv as I explained sweetly that we could not have cigarettes or lighters on the unit and the contraband would have to be handed over, no questions asked... or...

The TV would stay off, everone would line up so we could have them one by one change into scrubs while we searched their clothes then their rooms and then they would be sent to another area to sit and wait until they were all searched. Their choice.

I don’t think I have ever had so much power.

The cigarettes and lighter were delivered to me within three minutes by a guy who, I think was worried that the rest of the guys would hurt him badly if he didn’t give it up.

The set went on, we popped bowls of popcorn and our side won.

Should have been more specific.

No, they should not be allowed to watch the super bowl. They need to learn their behavior has consequences.

That is why they are in jail.

My father told a story about the first group of men he was assigned as a new 2ndLt. in the Air Force.

They were the absolute worst bunch on the base. Some criminal. He immediately had one guy sent to the brig and then used his discretionary funds to buy the barracks a TV for the World Series. His next purchase when he got funds was to purchase them a commercial floor buffer.

They loved him and he coached them to the base intramural basketball championship.

I thought it was Joe who stated once, when there was ginned-up controversy over him not letting them have cigarettes and coffee, that his philosophy was they should not have luxuries that law-abiding free people get.

You’d be surprised at how far the military goes for things like the Superbowl. Even guys out on patrol in Afghanistan are likely to be able to catch at least some of the game; the comms guys will put it out on one of the Sat channels.
