I don't know a lot about the incident that Sheriff Arpaio was being questioned on, but I do know he's a no-nonsense type who refuses to molly coddle prisoners in his facility. He's been praised by some but mostly vilified for the way he runs things, and I count myself among his supporters. IMHO if more jails and prisons were run along these lines then there would likely be fewer repeat offenders who were looking for *3 hots and a cot*, and costs for operating these facilities would be less costly.
David,I can respect your opinion on Arpaio. However, this has nothing to do with how Arpaio runs his jails. The fact is that a MCSO officer blatantly broke the law, minor as it may seem, and doesn't think there should be consequences. Not only that but this isn't like a real sentence, for lack of a better term, where he would have to do jail time. All he had to do was apologize to the lawyer who's paper he took. Nevertheless, he took a stand saying his punishment was unjust despite this. This led to not only a rally of MCSO officers but the next day 20 officers "called in sick". For a man who, in my opinion, wants to come out as a martyr and the good guy. That is why I am frustrated with this situation.
