Sheriff Arpaio feeds prisoners bread and water for a week as punishment

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is known for his unorthodox methods of dealing with prisoners and border patrol. Arpaio is the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. Arpaio has been an advocate for tough border patrol and tough immigration laws. A dozen or so inmates desecrated the American Flags that were hanging in their cells. Arpaio came up with the idea of putting them on a diet of bread and water for a week as their punishment to keep them from doing it again. Thirty-eight inmates from six different prisons were fed bread and water twice a day for a week as punishment for desecrating government property while in custody.  

Kudos to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, prison life is way too easy for prisoners. Three hot meals a day, cable, gyms and access to the internet. Some prisoners have a better life in prison than they do on the outside. Prisoners maintain a Facebook page from prison. Take away internet access from prisoners, it gives them too much access to the outside world. If they want to educate prisoners, make them sit in a classroom and use books with no access to the internet at all. Three hot meals a day. Cereal for breakfast, cold sandwich for lunch and maybe a hot meal for dinner.  Definitely, no cable television or internet access. The tax payers pay for those inmates sitting in prison who have committed crimes in their community, so why are we paying for inmates to watch cable or internet access. When I ground my children, they are not allowed to use the internet unless it is for homework,  If prison life was made harder on prisoners, maybe fewer of them will return to prison.  Punish prisoners, not pacify them until their release.
