Sadly, it always sucks when you have a stepdad who's a conservative.

Many years ago, my Mom and now-ex-stepdad moved to Phoenix, AZ. I remember seeing a magnet on their fridge with Joe Arpaio's face on it. The both of them were huge fans of the Maricopa County sheriff because of his no-nonsense attitude. They owned a computer repair shop and one time, a woman walked in with a petition to get Arpaio recalled. Her son was killed in one of his tent cities and Mom and stepdad kicked her out. "You do the crime, you do the time," they proclaimed. However, it was my stepdad who did his damndest to avoid those tent cities when he was busted for drunk driving. Instead, he spent a few weekends in a normal slammer.

Joe Arpaio is well-known for his no-BS attitude towards criminals; instead of keeping his criminals in jails, he has them in tent cities where the temperatures are well over 100 degrees. The inmates also wear pink outfits and are forced to watch G-rated movies instead of their favorite shows.

Now, guess who might be living in a tent city himself real soon? None other than Sheriff Joe himself.

A judge has charged Arpaio with criminal contempt of court regarding a racial profiling case. If convicted, he could face six months in prison. This was made after Arpaio's police kept making immigration arrests after he was told to stop.

Arpaio was the sheriff who claimed that President Obama's birth certificate was forged. And even though presidential nominee Donald Trump has reversed his decision in regards to the document, Arpaio told The Arizona Republic that he doesn't plan to stop until he has proof. 

Meanwhile, Arpaio is getting creamed in the polls by his Democratic challenger Paul Penzone. Joe has been the area's Sheriff for seven terms. He claims that billionaire George Soros is behind Penzone's campaign.

The tragedy here is that good 'ol Sheriff Joe is going to get his comeuppance. God damn the judge if Joe ends up in a country club instead of one of his own punishments. Let him be forced to eat soy crap. Let him be forced to watch "The Lion King" five times a day. Hell, let him swelter in 120-degree heat while he's bonking rocks with a sledgehammer.

Criminals have rights, too, you know...
