Arpaio: "I am against private prisons"

PHOENIX - Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he won't second guess what happened in the escape of three inmates from a medium-security prison in Kingman.

"I don't know all the details. It's sad. I hope they catch these guys."

But Arpaio said he had something to say about private prisons.

The inmates were in a private prison used mostly for DUI convicts. The three were in for attempted murder or murder.

"I don't like private prisons," he told KTAR's The Jay Lawrence Show Sunday night. "All they want to do is treat the guys nice so they can get more people to come in."


Sheriff Joe Arpaio is correct about the private prisons, they are all about the money. They simply pamper the hell out of the prisoners to make it very easy, and desirable. Private prisons need to be shut down for good.
