Maricopa County Jail in Arizona is the 4th largest jail system in the world. In 1993 it exceeded the maximum number of inmates allowed in its facilities. It was estimated that construction of a new facility would cost approximately $70,000,000. Sheriff Arpaio ordered that a Tent Jail be constructed utilizing inmate labor. It consisted of Korean War era tents donated by the United States armed forces, and a 50 ft (15.4 m) observation tower with a vacancy sign mounted on the front. The final cost of the project was approximately $100,000 and it is capable of housing over 2400 Inmates. All inmates housed outside in the open tents (N yard for males and O yard for females) are "volunteers" in the "Working Inmate Program" and must agree to work an assigned job and comply with the Sheriff's grooming standards. Inmates who decline to work or refuse to groom themselves are relocated inside a hardened facility along with the rest of the jail population. All inmates wear pink socks and underwear.

Why aren't all prisons like this? Nobody twisted their arm to break the law.

That looks a lot better than being in a small cell 23 hours a day, if I was dumb enough to end up in jail, I'd want to be somewhere like that. Unless it's in Alaska or Siberia, then give me my small room with bars please.

Well guess what you dont have to be dumb to be tossed into tent city. Im from arizona and had a couple of speeding tickets i didnt know about (photo tickets) well the DMV suspended my liscence because they had my wrong address and didnt send the tickets to my new address (and guess what i was not driving in the photo tickets) so anywho i get to spend 8 days there. In Arizona that cocksucker Sheriff Joe will toss you in the clink if you even fart wrong.

@ Isiris

why the pink socks and underwear ...


NO man will ever buy pink underwear, that's why they got it that color, so they cannot sell it.
