Arizona sheriff puts inmates on bread and water for desecrating U.S. flag

Arizona sheriff puts inmates on bread and water for desecrating U.S. flag.

KMGN:  In this day and age of political correctness and being “friends” with your children instead of “parents” this punishment seems quite harsh doesn’t it.  Compared to what punishments in the past could have been inflicted, I am actually encouraged by this man’s attempt at showing a limit to how far an inmate can go.

The punishment will last for seven days, he said, and a second offense would bring 10 more days of the sparse diet.

What do you think?  Too tough?  Not tough enough?  After all, each person is in jail because they broke the law.

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
