Joe Arpaio and Michael Salman Keep Inmates Bored to Death at Tent City

Pastor Michael Salman, doing his thing.
For Tent City's 19th birthday, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Pastor Michael Salman kept the inmates as bored as possible -- not even close to matching the gaudy celebration for of the jail's 18th birthday, which included women throwing pink panties at the sheriff.

Arpaio entered an air-conditioned room at Tent City to some light booing from the inmates, and the inmates laughed at Salman after he stood at a lectern at the front of the room to tell them he was "glad to be here."

Salman then led the inmates in prayer, during which he reminded everyone that he's being "persecuted" for following the Lord's will.

One of the inmates complained to Arpaio about the moon pies they got for the birthday celebration, telling the Sheriff that those things have been in the freezer for months. The inmate eventually just threw all of his food off the table.

The inmates also got to watch a compilation of local news clips starting from the jail's grand opening in 1993, also leaving the inmates bored to tears -- except for the part that showed footage of the 1996 riot at the jail. The inmates liked that one, as you can imagine.

Other than that, we were able to confirm Tent City is still hot in August, and Arpaio's really losing his party-planning skills.

Just another "event" Arpaio's handlers dreamed up to give the Tin Star Shurf a spot in front of the cameras.  I sure wish that the media would stop taking his picture, stop filming him, stop putting a microphone in front of him and stop quoting him.

 

If he wants to be on television so that everyone can laugh at him, he should cut a deal with Comedy Central to have his own show on his own dime.

Dang, all those guys got haircuts too before this dog-and-pony show at the dungeon? Wow, I mean wow! How come the girls don't get haircuts?!

Personally, I thought the Catholic & Protestant services were one of the nicest things about the Estrella jail, but I NEVER saw any cops in the room while it was going on! 

Those big fat surefed deputies must be really scared about another riot!

Quite frankly the inmates loved it.  It was probably their highlight of the month.

Another fabricated story to discredit Arpaio.

Did Joke send a deputy to Hawaii to get him a fresh lei for the occasion?

He probably didn't want to hear about what a waste of money it was to the taxpayers. As for the public address system....it makes Joe feel more important instead of impotent.

Why did they need a public address system in that small room?  That is really stupid!

 @JoeArpaioFan I see you are still publicly showing your homoerotic worship of the Sex Predator Loving  Sheriff! 

 

But I guess if you want to keep you PR job at MCSO, you gotta do what  you gotta do!

 @azlefty For your information, El Mirage has a population of about 32,000 people.  Of that population, about 67 percent are Latino or Hispanic.  That means that more than half the city are Mexicans, so wouldn't it be safe to assume that of those 400 plus sex cases you say were never investigated, the suspects are likely to be Hispanic?  If Sheriff Arpaio is so racist towards Latinos, don't you think that he would consider those cases to be a top priority?

 @JoeArpaioFan using your logic the joke should have gone in and busted everyone since they are all "Mexican".... FYI not all "Latinos or Hispanics" are fucking Mexican you stupid fucktard.

 Obviously, when it comes to justice for Hispanic victims, it wasn't Arpaio's top priority, or even on his to-do list.
