Temperatures rise to 145 inside Tent City
Jul. 3, 2011 12:00 AM
The Arizona Republic
.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio took the temperature inside one of the tents at Tent City Saturday afternoon.

The tents can sometimes mimic ovens or hot cars. The gauge in Arpaio's hand indicated 145 degrees, nearly 30 degrees hotter than the day's high.

The sheriff said it was exceptionally hot at the outdoor jail but said there was nothing he could do about it.

"What am I going to do, take them out of jail because it's too hot?" he said. "Our men and women are working out here in this heat, too. Does anyone feel sorry for them?"

At 118 degrees, Saturday was the hottest day of the year so far. To keep inmates cool, deputies passed out 6-ounce cups of ice to inmates at Tent City, located near 35th Avenue and Durango Street in Phoenix. It was the first time Arpaio has given inmates ice this year, and he said he doesn't know when he'll do it again.

Each of the 1,400 inmates in Tent City has been convicted of non-violent crimes, such as driving under the influence.

The facility, which has been open since 1993, can accommodate up to 2,000 inmates beneath its military surplus tents.

Female prisoners waited in a long line Saturday to receive their cup of ice while joking around with Arpaio. Many eagerly asked him to autograph Sheriff's Office postcards.

After receiving the ice, a few complained to media members that the fans near their beds were broken and the intense heat was causing their shoes to melt.

"They're just doing this for the media attention. This cup isn't going to do anything (to cool us down)," said Danielle Meek, 32, of Phoenix.

Despite the discomforts, Carrissa Satmarean, 21, of Mesa, said the moment wasn't completely wasted.

"We just came over here to see the guys (male inmates)," she said

Bet those cop cars are air conditioned.

Regardless, I'm not going to feel sorry for the inmates and here is why: They broke a law and are being punished. Jail is supposed to be a DETERRENT. Maybe if jail was more unpleasant, maybe some would not commit the crimes. Maybe other jails should be like this.

I agree with what she ^^^^ said. I feel bad that anyone is that hot and miserable, but it's not like they are there for no reason. They put themselves there. This just happens to be the consequences of their bebavior.

I worked in greenhouses for 9 years, it got that hot many days. Uncomfortable and miserable, Absolutely. But I did it because I had bills to pay. So after many 12-14 hour days I would still go back the next day to start all over. And in the winter there is no heat in them, unless the sun would come out and heat them some.
I didn't break the law to get there...... I was just doing what I needed to do.
So I don't feel too overly sorry for them.

It's all good until someone in for a DUI dies of heat stroke and the family sues them. Sooner or later I bet it gets shut down. These people are not in for rape murder or robbery. A few are in for unpaid parking tickets and some for DUI. I do not think the punishment fits the crime in many cases there. I wonder how many who sit in other states supporting what he does would feel if someone in there family or even if they drank too much at a party one night, got pulled over and ended up in a place like that.

I don't drink if I am going to drive and I don't drive if I'm going to drink.
IF I were to ever drink and drive it would be my own fault that I was being punished. I believe in taking blame.... and being responsible enough to not put myself in that position. But that's just me and my opinion.

Sorry, Doc.......
