I was visiting relatives just outside Phoenix in 2006 and remember being told about Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Pink Underwear prisoners had to wear. Was told a lot more of the horrific conditions there as well. A tough Jail. The attitude was if you don't like the punishment don't do the crime.
I was watching worlds wildest Police chases one of those car police chases on TV the other day.
the guy speeding once stopped by the police by using their techniques, one of the officers broke his rib by kneeing into his chest whilst he got down on the ground.
As a result the driver or suspect came on tv to say he wouldn't be stealing cars again because of the broken rib.
He had learnt his lesson and hasn't as a result stolen another vehicle. He goes around telling this to others to stop if it helps them to stop stealing, speeding in cars. When he was detained in prison he couldn't lay down flat he had to sit up even when sleeping. That what he could remember whilst in prison.
But it doesn't mean all cops go around kneeling people in the ribs and not all crooks change because of a broken rib
