SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO of ARIZONA is IN THE PINK...

it's that fabulous time of the week...SATURDAY.....
and what color is SATURDAY ??
P.I.N.K.
Please remember all those that need our prayers...

*

THE NO-NONSENSE SHERIFF that makes his inmates wear PINK !
SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO of Arizona....TO read more about this amazing man, just use GOOGLE...


PINK sox...PINK handcuffs...and underneath it all, PINK underwear !!
GOTTA LOVE IT !!

Do you remember this LOSER...MIKE TYSON
HE got to spend some time with the Sheriff...and PINK !
and
NO...YOU DON'T LOOK PRETTY IN PINK !

The infamous PINK CHAIN GANG.....

Think they were mortified ?

*
Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) who created the "tent city jail...........

He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them .

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails.

Took away their weights.

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.

He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel. When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.

He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."

He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.
(Democrats, please take no offense...none was intended; it's just what the Sheriff said.. bj)

AND HE MAKES THEM ALL WEAR......
PINK!!!
DON'T 'CHA JUST LOVE IT !

Bo said...

Hi BJ...I say Sheriff Joe for President...he is some kind of guy!
I hope you're going to have a jolly weekend, Hugs ;-) Bo

Chris said...

Hey BJ, I've seen Sherrif Joe many times on TV. Wonder why other prison systems can't follow his guidelines. Sounds perfect to me.

Love Ya,
Chris

Kathleen Grace said...

I love it! Sounds like that sherriff has the right ideas. Jail should be punishment and not cater to the inmates whims and fancies. I would vote for him:>) Thanks for sharing this BJ:>)

dana said...

YOU are the bestest--you're little "hottie" yourself!
I love that sheriff and his pink wardrobe he hands out to those folks. I so enjoyed your info on him---I've seen bits and pieces about his approach to caring for the incarcerated, but your text added so many more details. I wish more folks had his guts.
Happy Pink Sat! Dana

Sondra Behne' said...

Hello BJ

Great story...I didn't know that before and your right, I do love it. best thing I've read in a very long time. Thanks for sharing.
Sondra

Joy said...

I love that Sheriff!

Becky said...

As it should be, as it should be.
I totally agree with his philosophy! Prison should feel like prison and not like home. The idea is to make them not want to return.
Great post.
Becky

Beverly said...

BJ, this was a wonderful way to begin the day. You are the best of the best.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Virginia said...

Smilingsal said...

I like that sheriff and I posted about him once. Someone left an unhappy comment. Just brace yourself. Have a Happy Pink Day!

Neabear said...

I have heard of this sheriff before and his pink things. I just had never seen pictures before. Thanks for sharing. You are too funny with the pics of the hunks. For most I am not old enough to be grandma, but I could be their mother.

Connie said...

I love Sheriff Joe, honey!!!!! My kinda guy. Do we get a pin up calendar of HIM! HE'S the "hottie" in my book. Wooooohoooooo
PINK smooches,
Connie

g said...

A pretty unique approach! (to jailing, I mean, not to Pink Saturday!)

Ooh, and thanks for the Hugh Jackman eye-candy! sigh!

Picket said...

Morning girl...loved the 'pink' post! lol lol Have a fantastic weekend BJ!

CC said...

This post is just too funny. If all our jails were like that..there might not be so many repeat offenders. :).
Thank you for all your sweet comments today. You are one terrific lady.

Andi said...

Gotta love Sheriff Joe! We have a pretty outspoken Sheriff in our county here in Florida and I love it. If they don't like it then they shouldn't do something to go there!!!

squawmama said...

Good Morning BJ... What a fun post today... I have heard about SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO and think his methods are unbeatable... More should follow his example... and now on to the HOT stuff...

claudie said...

Hi BJ
We used to live in AZ and remember the story of Sheriff Joe. The kids were small then and they couldn't believe it!!
Good for him and you gotta love all the pinkness.

Happy To Be said...

BJ I have seen Sheriff Joe a few times on TV and all I got to say is WAY TO GO..no club-med for him..I just love your PINK Saturday post..Thanks for cominy by mine...have a great weekend girl...hugs and smiles Gloria

laurie said...

I have read about Sheriff Joe. I wonder if there have been any studies about how it affects the inmates to have to wear pink. Do they automatically become more sensitive and are there fewer fights? I just don't see how you could get very angry if you knew that you and that other guy had on pink underwear! laurie

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I heard about this guy! But seeing inmates wearing pink in pictures really shows the impact! What a wild idea.

And Hugh Jackman...woohoo!

Anonymous said...

Oh yes, Miss Jean. Kenny says this is the best sheriff in the whole country and if the rest of them followed his example the jails and prisons wouldn't be overcrowded at all. He sends me updates on him regularly. Enjoyed your post today. Think that's about the best "Pink Saturday" post you've done. Of course ALL your posts are great! Happy weekend! Go Tech!

Deborah said...

I've heard of Sheriff Joe and we passed his place on the way back to the Grand Canyon.

I appreciate that last photo - and I'm old enough, too!

jeanne said...

Hi BJ, I am late commenting today. I went shopping with my sister, and came home for a nap. Don't you love it?

Your pink post today is quite an eye opener. That sheriff is on track the way I look at it. Your info is awesome and I enjoyed every word and photo. Wow, Hugh Jackman has bulked up. He used to be skinny. He is still a looker.

Hugs...Jeanne

BJ - I love this post. Maybe if more jails did this there would be a smaller population of inmates. Thanks for a great story. I am going to do a search to learn more.

Millie said...

We LOVE Sheriff Joe here in Arizona. I always vote for him since he's the only one who seems to do the right thing. The prisoners complain about Tent City in the summer here in the desert and Sheriff Joe reminds them that the American soldiers lived in tents in the first Iraq war and it's actually hotter there. He never forgets he works for the citizens of Maricopa County, AZ. Go Sheriff JOE!

Millie said...

I forgot to add this part: After he gave them the Disney Channel he found out that some of the perverted prisoners were getting nasty watching the children on the Disney Channel so he replaced it with C-Span. Go Sheriff JOE!!
