9/11 Anniversary Means One Thing at Joe Arpaio's Jails: Another Inmate Coloring Contest

That's because he's a child -- not an inmate in a county jail.
In an apparent attempt to continue treating adult inmates in his jails like a classroom full of fourth-graders (and to try and cash in on the media buzz surrounding the most tragic day in the country's history), Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be commemorating the upcoming 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with another inmate coloring contest.

Arpaio announced yesterday his plans for the upcoming day of remembrance. In addition to the coloring contest, the sheriff will use loudspeakers to blare the national anthem throughout his jails all day long until Sunday. He also vows to only allow inmates to watch 9/11-themed programing on jail televisions, including the Oliver Stone film "World Trade Center" and "United 93."

On Saturday and Sunday, jail televisions will be set on channels that only offer 24-hour 9/11-related programing, Arpaio crows.

Back to the coloring contest -- this is the second time Arpaio's held such a contest in less than 30 days.

As you may recall, Arpaio held a coloring contest to commemorate the death of his favorite jailhouse pooch, Queen. The MCSO then reneged on the prize for the best drawing: a meal of the winning inmate's choice (in reality, the inmates only "choice" was fast food).

The sheriff is asking inmates to color a picture of "what 9/11 means to our nation." The winner, Arpaio claims, will receive a fast-food for dinner every night for a week (we'll see about that).

In addition to the fast food for the inmate, Arpaio says if the winning drawing is good enough, he'll put it on EBay (a.k.a. someone on his staff who knows how to operate a computer will put it on EBay) and donate the proceeds to a charity benefitting 9/11 victims.

Once again, this non news has been presented on a major television news program. This is yet another Arpaio moment in the spotlight. The fool is floundering, his ship is sinking, and his desperation is showing.l Here in Maricopa County no one is listening to him this week. People are talking about the anniversary of the September 11th attack in New York City, about football starting up, and even about the PHOENIX POLICE DEPARTMENT raiding a church, "The Goddess Temple" that is in reality a brothel. Joe can't take it when he is not in the media spotlight. Let's face it, it's a definite decline in media to go from the New York Times, major t.v. news networks, etc. to a cover of THE GLOBE. Ha, ha, ha, maybe it's where he does belong if you think about. HELL NO, NO MORE JOE!

All Illegal aliens should be allowed to apply for work permits but only while they are outside the United States in their home countries.    Sherrif Joe is one of a few law enforcement individuals who understands a simple fact: "illegal immigrant" = an individual who is not in the United States legally. Being that the "illegal immigrant" has broken our  (and Barrack Hussien Obwama's) Federal Immigration Laws and entered the United States through illegal means, he / she is subject to a crime and as such, he / she is subject to deportation. Is that difficult to understand?

"The sheriff is asking inmates to color a picture of "what 9/11 means to our nation"

Oh really, I wonder if he realizes that petty dictators such as himself could only stay in office by playing to the fears of his base which isn't very difficult when his base is scared of damn near everything.

At least, that's what 9/11 has meant to Arizona.

Joe Arpaio claims to have served in the Army. His actions show that he is a disgrace to the military and to the brave men and women currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The MCSO shurf is indeed mentally ill. He needs to be fitted for his straitjacket. Now.

If Joe Arpaio goes through with this disgraceful action, I will ram my black steel-toed boot so far up his corrupt, fat, flaccid ass he will have a bloody asshole for weeks.

There is only ONE way to get rid of Joe, and that is to vote against him. Mike Stauffer is running against him so use your American right and vote vote vote in 2012

Perhaps he should have them coloring pictures of the first responders and how they have been treated since 911.  And yes Stacy, Arpiao is a VERY SICK man.
