Here is a post about our Arizona State Sheriff and how things work for the bad 
guys in Arizona.  His name is Joe Arpaio and he is not a cryonicist at this 
time.  This post doesn't have anything to do with cryonics, but only to let you 
know a little about Arizona if you are thinking of coming here to visit, perhaps
to visit Alcor.  If you do come here, be on your best behavior and don't get 
arrested in Arizona. 


  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. 




  Cut off all but "G" movies. 




  He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city 




  Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for 




  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 but 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 pipes into the 




  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. 




  More on the Arizona Sheriff: 




  With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just 
  set a new record), the Associated Press reports: 




  About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the 
  Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their 
  government-issued pink boxer shorts. 




  On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their 
  bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week 




  Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests 
  and dripped down to their pink socks.  "It feels like we are in a furnace" 
  said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1 1/2 years. "It's




  Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago 
  started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one
  bit sympathetic. 




  He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in Iraq 
  and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle 
  gear,  but they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your mouths!" 




  Way to go, Sheriff!  Maybe if all prisons were like this one, there would be a
  lot less crime and/or repeat offenders.  Criminals should be punished for 
  their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go
  out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers 
  money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves. 




  If you agree, pass this on.  If not, delete it.
