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.

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.
