Red, White, and Joe
by Pa Rock
Arizona's biggest bully, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, is showboating again. This time the geriatric lawman has come up with a scheme to make himself appear tougher and more patriotic, while decreasing the nutritional intake of some of his prisoners to damned near nothing. And Old Joe does love a cheap meal - when its served to residents of his jails.
The plan is this: Arpaio intends to punish any inmates who deface the American flag by putting them on rations of bread and water. Then, to make sure that they have an opportunity to deface the flag, he is placing American flag stickers in each of the cells.
"See that flag you pink underwear-wearing piss ants? Go ahead, just try messing with that flag! I double-dog dare you!"
That sounds like the kid in fifth grade who took everyone's lunch money. The prisoners aren't the only people suffering from arrest here in Sandbilly Heaven. The sheriff is obviously a victim of arrested development!
