PHOENIX -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is used to dealing with extreme heat in his Tent City jail.And I hope that each one of them, as he shivers under his blankets, thinks about someone that he knows who didn't do wrong and who is warm and comfy in a nice house or apartment somewhere.
For the next few days, inmates will be facing severe cold weather instead. The overnight temperatures are expected to dip below freezing.
Inmates will have extra blankets for the next few nights, Arpaio said. They will also be issued pink thermal underwear to go with their standard pink boxers.
The tents used for the jail date back to the Korean War.
"The conditions here are mild compared to what happened in 1950 in 'frozen Chosin,'" Arpaio said, referring to the Korean War battle.
