Joe Arpaio Sidesteps $3.25 Million
Jail-Death Settlement, Throws
a Fit About Cost of Feeding
Inmates Thanksgiving Meal

Phoenix New Times, by Matthew Hendley

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 11/22/2012 6:03:48 PM

Forget about the settlement approved by the county this week that sends $3.25 million to the family of a woman who died in one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio´s jails, the Sheriff is more concerned with bitching about the extra nickel it´s going to cost to feed the inmates tomorrow. The latest press release from the Maricopa County Sheriff´s Office is a bit apologetic in tone, because the cost of the Thanksgiving meal for the inmates this year is five cents more per meal than the crap the inmates eat every other day. The Thanksgiving meal for inmates -- complete with sliced turkey, mashed potatoes and

Comments:
This has a sub heading of story: Another Stupid-Sheriff Story

Not familiar with this paper but it seems an alternative life-style publication.

And do they deserve anymore than what they get? Nobody is making them eat.

Pretty snarky article.
The comments are very negative and hateful against a wonderful patriot, Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

I am sorry, but he shouldn´t be making a big deal about a lousy 5 cents extra cost per meal. That is just stupid. He agrees that the inmates should be able to have a Thanksgiving meal, so why is he apologizing for the cost?? So much money is often wasted elsewhere...it just make Arpaio look bad when he makes a big deal over nothing.

Green baloney can be dressed up to look almost like turkey.

Turkey´s a relatively cheap meat, though. If Arpaio´s worried about the cost, he can have his staff research suppliers and maybe save a little money.

Doesn´t sound like a legitimate news source.

The Phoenix New Times is a free, weekly Phoenix, Arizona newspaper, put out every Thursday. It is the founding publication of the New Times Media (now Village Voice Media), but The Village Voice is now the flagship publication of that company.

The paper was founded in 1970 by a group of students at Arizona State University, led by Frank Fiore, Karen Lofgren, Michael Lacey, Bruce Stasium, Nick Stupey, Gayle Pyfrom, Hal Smith, and later, Jim Larkin as a counterculture response to the Kent State shootings in the spring of that year. Gary Brennan played a role in its creation. According to the 20th Anniversary issue of the New Times, published on May 2, 1990, Fiore suggested that the anti-war crowd put out its own paper. The first summer issues were called the Arizona Times and assembled in the staff´s La Crescenta apartments across from ASU. The Arizona Times was renamed the New Times as the first college issue went to press in September 1970.

It is a free local scandal sheet that caters to the college and "hip" crowd.

It languishes in newsstands all over the Phoenix area.

So, the reporter seems to think jail should be more like Club Med than an incarceration institution for law breakers? If they want a fine T-giving meal, they should do all they can, like most of us, to avoid breaking the law and ending up in jail! Desiring to get fine T-giving meals is not why people go to jail.

As for the crazy that died in jail and family got the 3.5 settlement - Arpaio had nothing what-so-ever to do with that settlement and more than likely, the settlement is not settled- it is in negotiation! They never get what is awarded- the two parties enter negotiation to reach something more practical- (I have seen 6 million settled down to fifty grand!)

If you take the tour of Alcatraz, you find out that the convicts were entitled to food that met Bureau of Prisons standards: nutritious, and attractively presented. Alcatraz housed the worst of the worst. Why should a jail, which holds some prisoners who have not yet even been convicted of a crime, treat its prisoners worse than Alcatraz?

If Thanksgiving dinners only cost 5 cents more than baloney sandwiches,then why not serve them everyday? How much more is a roast beef dinner,10 cents more.

If these people weren´t some variety of criminal they could be on the streets eating what they want. They have no reason to bit*h if they´re lawbreakers.

No more than welfare recipients complaining about a $1.30 a day on food stamps.I check food stamp carts all the time. Most of the time I see 6-8 bottles of soda in there.If they´re buying soda instead of food,that´s their tough luck.Fat laden sausages are another fav of the food stampers.Why isn´t this kind of stuff banned if they´re concerned about obesity?

If there is true justice, these bleeding hearts will be the next victims of those in Joe´s lockup. Tried to use the Phoenix New Times to line the kitty litter box but the cat wouldn´t even go near it. says it all.

Justina Pelletier treated

There is a young person held captive in Massachusetts today who is not allowed to participate in religious ceremonies, or visit family without government agents watching. No, it’s not accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. It’s 15-year-old mitochondrial disease patient and nonterrorist Justina Pelletier. U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole Jr. ruled Wednesday that the now-20-year-old charged with four deaths and injuring more than 260 people should be able to see his sisters without an FBI agent present. The feds can appeal, but he says their case would have to be “pretty convincing.” “Can you believe it?”

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street. An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong." "He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes." The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back. A bomb squad member yelled "fire in the hole" as they

Kyiv- A recording proving that Russia is backing separatists in eastern Ukraine has surfaced online. The SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) taped the operatives, whose code names are "Nose," "Adler," "Shooter" and "Agath," discussing strategy, weapon stockpiles, and requests for reinforcements. The SBU has identified the number calling the separatists in Ukraine as having a Russian +7 area code. The person with the Russian number asks Shooter to contact him. Later in the conversation, Shooter reports “fighting off the first (Ukrainian) attack” and shooting “some significant (highly-ranked Ukrainian) people."

Frank Armstrong never got the chance to know 8-year-old Martin Richard in this life. Nevertheless, the BPD captain in charge of Area E-18 in Hyde Park keeps a picture of the marathon bombings’ youngest casualty on the wall in his office. The Dorchester boy who loved the Bruins, and the 53-year-old cop, who grew up five houses away from where the Richard family lives, share a bond that is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming. For nearly 12 hours on that fateful Patriots Day a year ago, Frank Armstrong led a squad of Boston police officers who stood watch over

BOSTON - After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement. Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she

About 10 investigators with Boston Fire´s Arson unit this morning entered the four-story brownstone on Beacon Street where six days ago a roaring blaze claimed the lives of two firefighters. The arson investigators entered the building around 10 a.m. On Wednesday, Lt. Edward Walsh and Michael Kennedy died after being trapped in the basement of the 298 Beacon St. building during the roaring 9-alarm blaze. Deputy Chief Joseph Finn, who commanded the firefighters last week and made the decision to pull firefighters from the wind-driven fire, was also on scene. He had no comment when he exited the building shortly

A day after the flames thwarted his efforts to save Lt. Edward J. Walsh and firefighter Michael R. Kennedy in the basement of a blazing Beacon Street brownstone, Capt. Neal Mullane of Ladder 18 in South Boston, his own scalp gashed and burned, found himself drawn to the Back Bay firehouse that has become a kind of chapel for his grieving brethren. Mullane, 42, was one of the officers tapped at a moment’s notice to command as the Rapid Intervention Team at the nine-alarm fire. He described the desperate detail to the Herald’s Laurel J.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
