God Bless Sheriff Joe Arpaio - I Love this guy!!

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 before.

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 inhumane."

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 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
damned mouths."
