You may have heard of Sheriff Joe. He’s the one that makes his prisoners wear pink underwear and live outside in tents in the sweltering Arizona sun. Don’t be surprised if you see him running for President some day.
Well he’s outdone himself this time with the invention of “Pedal Vision.” Now I’ve heard of Spank-A-Vision and Smell-A-Vision but only Sheriff Joe could have create a machine that prisoners have to pedal in order to watch TV.
As of April first, all Maricopa County Jail prisoners who wish to watch television will have to pedal a stationary bike connected to a generator to keep the TV turned on.
To Joe’s credit, he’s simply trying to make living in jail as uncomfortable as possible. Hard to argue with the success he’s had in that effort.
