15. Abuse of mentally ill prisoners is common

Not just in Maricopa County.

Jails are the primary mental health facilities across the country. It is a dangerous, inhuman system.

My psychotic son was restrained by six jail guards, tazed, and put in isolation with no treatment or medications. This happened in "liberal" Portlandia!

He survived. After several months he turned things around.

Joe Arpio is an evil character. If Bull Connor were alive today, Trump would probably praise his "tough on the darkies" game plan.

Law enforcement and corrections is difficult, dangerous work. It takes a special skill set to both protect and defend while becoming skilled at de-escallating dangerois events.

These guys, however, are not alone in their brutality. As hard as we try, there are still too many jaded, angry individuals who are attracted to the field everywhere. We need to weed out the bigots and sadists.
