America’s Kidnapping Capitol

Hey New York, it look like Phoenix, AZ is stealing the title “the city that never sleeps” from you. No cause for alarm though as Phoenix certainly wont be taking any tourist dollars from your state, the folks in Phoenix are awake for fear of being kidnapped. Phoenix has earned itself the dubious honor of being the kidnapping capitol in the country and is working hard towards its goal of being the kidnapping capitol of the world, currently they have the #2 slot.

I am certain it has nothing to do with those hard working folks that illegally cross the border to work or your city’s sanctuary policies for illegal aliens and the drug cartels. Last year alone,there were more than 370 kidnappings – with extortionist purposes and with every instance including torture. For the moment, the kidnapping seemed to be confined to illegals battling over drug territory but how long will it be before they decide that kidnapping Phoenix citizens for ransom can be quite lucrative??

In an effort to combat the crime wave, Phoenix police have pulled more than a dozen officers off other assignments and created a special unit to handle the kidnappings, called the Home Invasion Task Force. The crimes are occurring across the valley and in all types of neighborhoods, authorities warn.

Sheriff Joe, My Hero!

Sheriff Joe ArpaioSheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona is one of the most controversial law officers in the country but if you ask me, he’s also one of the most effective. He doesn’t take shit, he lays down the law, he make criminals think twice about reoffending and he gets rid of illegals. I don’t see a problem with that. I wish we could clone him and have law officers like him all over the country. Imagine the drop in crime rates if you were a criminal and knew the brand of law you were going to be facing was his?

Go Joe!

You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well………

SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN!

Oh, there’s MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe!

Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay.

The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who’d like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.

The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered, and current on all shots, in great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him. Cost us $78.

The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour f or working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.

I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand.
