Wow, you are wrong if you think it is ok to have one drink then drive. Tell my friends 10ft under that it is ok. Tell their families, that drinking and driving is ok, as long as no one is hurt...duh. It is only a matter of time till someone gets hurt. Usually people who drink one drink and drive tend to drink more at other times and drive. If you do the crime, you do the time. In a hot sweaty tent is fine by me. Why should you have air conditioning when I do not in my home. You should only be served MRE's and live like rats. Take a look at how the men and women serving this country and dying are living before you complain any further.

Jasil and prison have never been comparable to a vacation in the Bahamas. There have always been those who will return to jail time and time again. I think the tent city and the pink underwear are a great idea. Jail should be a place that normal people should not want to be subjected to. If normal people are in a place like tent city perhaps they will be taught a lesson. If we can't supply enough cable tv, libraries and excersize rooms etc. maybe some can be saved by this tough love. I live in Acadia Parish La. and we have a very agressive police and Sheriff against drugs and person on person crime. If this could be coupled with tough sentencing and punishment such as no catered meals, living in tents, Pink underwear inside and stripes for the work details, I believe this would reduce the desire to be incarcerated. Some of these are lifetime criminals who are at home in the current system. These criminals need a little "Shock and Awe".
I tell you what I was thinking of your posting but it seems your IQ already shows but I will hope only one day you will see the light. I do know if you took out being able to make a profit and make the city pay for the people they lock up and not the fed Gov. bet there be plenty of room in jail.

You lack a bit of credibility considering his name is Joe Arpaio, not Pyle.
You are wrong, Pyle is right for that county. Arpaio does not cover the whole state. But, Pyle is a Arpaio wanabe.
