Frank White has been funneling the money that was supposed to go toward the guard raises to keep Caleb Clifford and his PR team after the Legislature cut them from the budget.

@3:36 Yeah, like that tough guy "Sheriff Joe" down in Arizona!!! He only cost his county millions in lawsuits and legal fees. And fuck the notion that most people in a county lockup are innocent until proven guilty as they await trial.

4:15 Good Point! I thought Joe A just put convicted or volunteers in the tents. Been in several county jails for long vacation weekends. That was enough.

Put Caleb in one of those tents. He deserves that the way he criminally avoids his demise. He has a new job at the courthouse now. You should track that, tony.

Caleb seems to be under investigation for both his spending of public funds for a truck and other goodies AND his "treatment of women."

Oh, so, same as Killa Shitty & JackOffs County costing many millions in lawsuits and audits for a long list of civil rights suits, murders, rapes, assaults, cover-up fraud, contraband, employee thefts, etc.

Sure, silly ol' notion of innocent until proven dead or disabled while awaiting trial!
