Joe Arpaio’s Tent City jail to shut down, new Arizona sheriff announces

by FoxNews
April 6, 2017

Tent City, the jail facility set up in Arizona by controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, will soon be no more.

“This facility became more of a circus atmosphere for the general public. Starting today, the circus ends, and the tents come down,” the new sheriff, Paul Penzone, said in a news conference Tuesday.

The closing will end a significant piece of former Sheriff Arpaio’s legacy, who opened the complex in 1993 to ease overcrowding in jails. Arpaio held the office for six terms before Penzone beat him last November.

When the facility first opened, Arpaio said the jail would have strict guidelines, including banning items such as cigarettes, having prisoners wear striped uniforms and living in tents.

    Sad that all the hard work of Arpaio will go down the toilet. He was a no BS kind of sheriff, I thought he was great.

  • the whistler says:

    A sheriff that calls Illegal Aliens ‘Our Guests’ should be wearing the pink underwear…A Sheriff that selectively enforces the law is nothing more than a Third World Dictator ‘wannabe’.

    Any state that can continually sends that nasty little dead-for-five years corpse John McCain back to the senate, gets exactly what they want and deserve.
    This new twat er Sheriff, funded by Soros money calls illegals “guests”. Hope all of the a-holes that voted for Sheriff “Pinhead” Penzone enjoy their “quests”. Maybe keep a window unlocked or allow these “guests” to take your wife, daughter, life partner out for a spin. After all it’s important to be neighborly to all of your “guests” whether here illegally or not and to look at it as business as usual should any heinous crime be perpetrated against you and yours.
    Don’t be surprised if this puss-i, socialist sheriff gives out Welcome Baskets to the illegal law breakers and felons.

    Well, looks like Arizona is going to be building new rest resorts for the law braking challenged (prisoners). The new housing will likely be the envy of all working class citizens, that will be paying for accommodations, that even they can’t afford! NO BILLS, NO RESPONSIBILITIES,NO CARES OR WORRIES, AND BEST OF ALL, Like full Healthcare including Dental, new clean housing, color TV, workout rooms, work shops, Gardening locations, game rooms, education classes, three square meals a day, plenty of time relax to contemplate their their next crime, so they can return to the life only the rich can enjoy. Yep, it will will be the UTOPIA of places to commit crimes!

    This may be interesting, but the question really is: Will this new Sheriff actually enforce the laws or will he behave like any other socialist (democrat) lacky who will engage in selective enforcement? Can you say “sanctuary county”?

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Well he had the backing of the Obama clan and of course the DOB at the time, and they pushed hard for their new sanctuary loven boy! I think there was more to it politically than we know, the people of AZ. loved Arpaio!

      1. Retired says:

        Most living in the tents probably had it better than where they lived before .

          Exactly, they just didn’t get to ware pink!! 🙂
