Joe Arpaio Hosts Concert at Tent City

The individual who runs this jail claims he's a tough guy who's hard on criminals.


Surprise, surprise: Sheriff Joe Arpaio hosted a publicity stunt at his "concentration camp," Tent City.

Arpaio held a concert at the jail, and it wasn't exactly Johnny Cash at Folsom State Prison.

The self-proclaimed "toughest" sheriff in America arranged for a couple of pianists to play Mozart tunes, which Arpaio referred to in a press release as "music education in therapy."

Arpaio's had other tough-on-crime initiatives at the jail before, like an Elvis impersonator, ice cream parties, an American Idol rip-off contest, and a concert by country musician Glen Campbell, among other things.

The Mozart thing kind of sucks, in comparison to previous cheesy publicity stunts.

The Sheriff's Office insists there's no cost to the taxpayers for this latest stunt, although that's been said before.

I respect Joe Arpaio, I think he is wasting his time on a bunch of people who could care less about classical music or culture that is educational!

Is Hendley mad because it didn't include a Mariachi Band for his flock of illegal aliens?

Let us not forget the time during a very hot summer, Joke handed out paper fans to the inmates to help cool them off.  These fans has "I'm a fan of Joe!" printed on them, and a stick as a handle.


Within an hour, inmates took the sticks, sharpened them, and used them as sieves!  The MCSO clowns had to QUICKLY go through the tents and try to get all the fans back!.

@robert_graham you evidently dont seem to understand the whole reason to give the inmates things. Joe only does it to get in the news. how many other sheriffs hold news conferences to tell people they are feeding inmates holiday meals? none of them hold conferences, but they all serve the meals. how many sheriffs hold news conferences to let people know they are piping in music or allowing television to play the animal planet? only Joe twit, only Joe. its all for attention and you are gobbling it up thinking he is making a difference. it isnt about law and order or crime and punishment with Joe, its about how many news sources he can get to show up for his next news conference

rut row.. the spelling nazi on yet another anonymous account has arrived to bitch and complain about ANYTHING... just to be able to bitch and complain...

Some of us actually give a shit about what was being said, not caring about how it was being said... we have more important things in our lives than to give a damn about spelling... unlike you clearly.. 

it must be hard for you.. sitting in your double wide watching faux media in your wifebeater with nothing better to do with your life than to be the self appointed equivalent of a hall monitor in kindergarten...
