"Nickel Bag Joe" as he is known in Arizona, is under investigation himself by the Federal Government for shifty things he has been doing himself
over the years. Folks either love him or hate him...seems like there is no in-between. I too think he is making these "busts" due to his own
investigation by the Feds.
The tents he uses aren't JUST for the folks convicted of crimes- even those held for hearings or trial, and not actually convicted yet, must live
under these conditions, in the bitter cold of desert nights in winter, to the blistering hot heat of an Arizona summer, which is only magnified by the
tents. His bragging about feeding his prisoners on one dollar a day is absolutely absurd....he feeds them baloney sandwiches once a day, with NO
breakfast, and a meager dinner at the end of a long day's work. After you are convicted, you get moved to "cushier" quarters in the actual
jailhouse itself. These folks, who still have rights, are being treated worse than most treat their pets. Sickening.
I truly hope someone comes in and cleans the whole department out. They are all in cahoots together. This guy is a power hungry, scary dude I
wouldn't want anywhere NEAR my family or friends.
The "Nickel Bag Joe" nickname he has is due to the fact that he likes to bust Latinos for petty amounts of drugs.(usually marijuana) He and his
cohorts block off an entire neighborhood and search everyone(and their vehicles) who comes in or out at the time they are doing it. Almost always
Latino neighborhoods at that. I'd love to see this guy get what he deserves.
