Sheriff Joe Arpaio intrudces special cell block for veterans

Post by Flesh Thorn »

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has introduced a new jail unit specifically for inmates who served in the military, joining eight other jail units under his jurisdiction in Phoenix, Arizona.

"They fought for our country. The least we can do is help them. When some came back, some had mental problems. We have drug prevention programs, alcoholism," said Arpaio.

Known to some as ‘America’s Toughest Sheriff," Joe Arpaio has drawn both intense praise and criticism. From male inmates in pink underwear to the world’s first ever-female chain gang, the sheriff makes no apologies for the way he runs his jail.

I always knew there was a reason I joined the Army. Now I know what it was.
I never wore a cape, but I still have my dog tags.

No telling, but it's very easy for him to access the info to confirm someones claim of being a veteran.

Hopefully it has the impact he's hoping for. Sounds similar to the 'Veteran Treatment Courts' that have been popping up. They are doing quite amazing things for vets as well.

I gotta say with each new story I hear about this Sheriff I'm more impressed. Good for him for having the balls and the brains to do something like this. I hope those guys get squared away again, whatever their demons are.

One of my friends was arrested for some domestic charges while in his Marine dress blues. He was placed in solitaire confinement under the pretense that the other inmates would try to test themselves against him. He is still married to her .......
