Way to go Scottsdale, I love it. Not only are you making money but Big Joe will have more room to fill up his jail. I love Sheriff Joe, take no shit, kick ass and take names. I think Sheriff Joe should run for President and help straighten out this country. You can also hire Walmart top excs to help you get the job done .
