Well my heart bleeds. Who give a f*ck? Certainly not me, as far as I'm concerned they can drug, beat and starve them as much as they want. You wimpering bleeding hearts seem to forget, these f*ckers are in there because they very likely did exactly the same to some poor defenseless person on the outside. Who cares if they go in and never come out? Not me, they deserve everything they get and more. If they are Mexican then that might even serve to teach the rest of the illegal brigade that we dont put up with s*it in this great country of ours.

so stay out of our state and our jail if you dont like it. Go to a mexico jail and see what kind of treatment you receive.

This is cheesy as hell but if you are gonna do the crime, expect to do the time. Now! As for getting beaten, I personally think its bull shit. Watch one of those guards get caught walking down the street by a previous inmate of 4th avenue..blood in the gutter for sure. Its not right to treat men as animals, let them suffer having to be locked away like a dog in the pound, dont lay scars on top of an already sorry pooch. My man is locked up in 4th avenue as I type this. I pray to god his big ass mouth doesnt write any checks his ass cant cash. Something should be done about that blow job of a sherrif. Get him out of arizona!

Maricopa county is going to be broke. This will definitely lead to another lawsuit. Maricopa county has had to pay over $50 million in lawsuits because of abuse, or wrongful deaths at their jails. People should be treated with decency, if not for the sake of morality then at least do it to save your tax payers $50 millions dollars.
Sheriff Joe is parading around like a tyrant at the tax payers expense. Sheriff Joe: we have the law for a reason and you of all people should follow it. No one is above the law, not even a sheriff.

The people who live there should be outraged. This is their money that is being used to foot the bill for all these lawsuits.

People who live in Arizona and think that this is funny, it won't be funny when you taxes go up to cover this nonsense.

It is one of the cleanest facilities around, inmates clean it every day, and no they don't work for free. they get the 2 for 1 deal, in other words if they get one year they can cut it in half by working.
