Jails Go Vegetarian In Maricope County, Arizona

#1

A jail going vegetarian almost sounds like a progressive move -- perhaps the Meatless Mondays folks have made a strong impression?

But no, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's decision to serve no meat at the Maricopa County jails in Arizona is not motivated by health, environment or religious concerns. It is merely a cost-saving measure. Meat is being replaced by soy, reports FOX 10 in Arizona.

When FOX reporter Troy Hayden asks Arpaio if the "slop" looked appetizing, Arpaio responded that it looks great. "You're kidding, right," Hayden asked.

Arpaio claims that replacing meat with soy will save $100,000. "It looks like wood chips," said Hayden. After a taste, Arpaio claimed he still thinks its good. Hayden begged to differ.

Arpaio previously made headlines for trying to cut food costs in a different way -- by charging inmates for their meals.

Beautiful salads and fresh vegetables these meals are not, and by the looks of those woodchips that soy product, prison meals still have a long way to go.

I answer food complaints by inmates on a near-daily basis.

Don't like it, don't eat it.

Unless it's a food safety issue, I really don't give a shit.

What's it called again when you mush it all together in a ball before you give to them?

Well, we have something called a food loaf, where all the shit on the tray is blended up (minus the napkin and spork0 and baked into a delightful muffin.

Better hope they weren't having hard-boiled eggs that morning, or it's gonna be a bit dodgy on the way out.

Give 'em the same diet that the prisoners in the Peoples Paradise of North Korea get I say.

Everything else is done on a best-cost basis. Why not this?

And, good - fuck them.

Sheriff Joe needs attention again, I see.
More like... Sheriff Joe needs his county to pay out awards on yet more lawsuits resulting from his attention-whoring idiocy.

Flash forward 20 years, and so far Sheriff Arpaio has cost taxpayers of Maricopa County more than $50 million in lawsuits for his unethical and unconstitutional tactics. Today the county agreed to shell out another $1.5 million:

I don't know if it's possible to agree with someone on almost every issue and still hate their guts, but that's how I feel about Joe. He's a dickhead for the sake of being a dickhead. Since he does his attention whore stunts to petty criminals, the rubes eat it up. I guarantee every deputy that works in that jail hates his guts for making the prisoners so miserable, thereby making their jobs miserable.

It's not done on a best-cost basis. If it was, half the people in that jail would just be let go, because they're not really criminals. Pretty sure that would save a lot more money than not buying meat.

My best friend is a part-time deputy with MCSO. I'll ask him.

Isn't this the definition of a bully?
