Sheriff Joe Arpaio, renowned for his tough stand on illegal immigrants, had the sign built “to underscore that Tent City remains an excellent facility to safely and cost effectively house inmates,” the department stated. It’s such an efficient program, Arpaio points out, that it has been visited by four U.S. presidential candidates and a number of senators from several states.
More than 427,000 inmates have “served” their time in Tent City, which began in 1993 and is made up of Korean War tents, the department said.
“Borrowing from the world’s most renowned fast food chain,” the department said, the sign will be updated monthly with the latest number of inmates “Served”.
Should there be some kind of “reward” for the 500,000 served? the 1,000,000 served?
