Phoenix, Arizona. April 17, 2009 - Nine hundred Maricopa County Jail pre-sentenced male inmates were moved from one housing facility to another in the massive Maricopa County Jail Complex, located in southwest Phoenix . The 900 inmates walked in chains wearing their black and white striped jail uniforms from the Lower Buckeye Jail and the Towers facility. According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO), moving these inmates opened up 200 more beds for medium and maximum security jail inmates. In a press release, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said: "For 16 years, I've had a vacancy sign shining over Tent City to tell everybody we will always find a way to make room for more law breakers. Even in hard times like these, I'm not about to allow the early release of inmates because we run out of bed space for bad guys." The transfer of inmates was overseen by Sheriff Arpaio and secured by the Sheriff's SWAT and Special Response teams as well as deputies and armed posse. Just a few weeks before, Sheriff Arpaio was criticized for what was considered the parading another 220 jail inmates from one jail to the Tent City Jail. Photo by Eduardo Barraza © 2009
