Juvenile Chain Gangs

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has some gruesome plans for teens sentenced to the county jail--including burying the dead.

15 to 17 year olds sentenced to the county jail for up to a year will be placed in a juvenile chain gang, bound together at the ankle in groups of five. They will wear traditional black and white prison garb as well as the jail's notorious pink underwear.

The juveniles will be required to pick up trash on public streets and bury the relatives of indigent families at the county cemetery.

The Sheriff calls the plan "Hard Knocks High." We call it disgusting.
