Wednesday, February 18, 2009 :Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona's Maricopa County has forced prisoners to march through the streets of Phenix dressed in just pink underwear, housed prisoners in tents in the searing heat and appears on a Fox reality-TV show.

He's also been accused of focusing on immigration enforcement at the expense of other law enforcement duties.
