What can be done about crime in America? Introducing Sheriff Joe Arpaio! Sheriff Joe Arpaio believes that criminals should never live better in jail then they do on the outside. In Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe houses inmates in surplus army tents dating from the Korean War. And while temperatures can reach up to 120 degrees, Sheriff Joe reasons that if tents were good enough for the troops of Desert Storm, they are good enough for convicted criminals. Called the Alcatraz of Arizona the Tent City Jail features discipline, hard work and a total absence of frills. Sheriff Joe's deeds prove what I've been saying for years: That the people of this country can solve many of our most pressing problems without waiting for Washington and without bankrupting taxpayers. Speaking plainly and courageously about crime, punishment, and politics, Sheriff Joe Arpaio demands to be read.Rush LimbaughSheriff Joe is always up to something new. Whether it is chasing crooks or writing books, Arpaio is a controversial, provocative and interesting man.Tom Jarriel, ABC News
