Do ya think we can send George to Arizona?

By: BettyJean Kling

geoGeorge Hartwig shot my baby girl Louisa in the face with a shotgun while she was phoning for help. He was forcing her 80 Lb. dying sister Denise for her cancer pain meds. Denise is gone now, Louisa is not far behind. George comes up for arraignment for aggravated assault in August 17th in Bergen County N.J.  We can’t send him to Arizona but we can send letters to Bergen County NJ insisting NO BARGANS–  prosecute George to the full extent of the law! He assaulted Denise for 23 years; he was out on his own recognizance taking a claw hammer to her head resulting in 85 stitches the previous June. I need your help to ensure we get some Justice- please help!      Louisa’s Law 2009

PS- aside from the obvious PINK= sexist- Joe is doing a great job on these guys  and the ACU can kiss my pituddy if thy expect me to feel sorry for George Hartwig or any other abuser!

You all remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb. Well…………..



Oh, there ‘ s MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe! Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay. The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who ‘ d like
to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows. The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered, and current on all shots, in
great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him. Cost us $78.

The prisoners get the benefit of about $0..28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals.

I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand. He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 – $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later… We have six trees in our yard from the Prison.

Yup, he was re-elected last year with 83% of the vote. Now he’s in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural, that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn’t doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He ‘ s kind of a ‘ Git-R Dun ‘ kind of Sheriff.


He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but ‘ G ‘ movies. He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county
and city projects. Then He Started Chain Gangs For Women So He Wouldn’t Get Sued

For Discrimination.He took away cable TV Until he found out there was A Federal Court
Order that Required Cable TV For Jails So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel. When asked why the weather channel He Replied, So They Will Know How Hot It’s Gonna Be While They Are Working On My Chain Gangs.

He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value. When the inmates complained, he told them, ” This Isn’t The Ritz/Carlton……If You Don’t Like It, Don’t Come Back.”

More On The Arizona Sheriff: With Temperatures Being Even Hotter Than Usual In Phoenix (116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), the Associated Press Reports:

About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent Encampment At The Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued Pink Boxer Shorts. On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached138 Degrees Inside

The Week Before. Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On
Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS. ‘ It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace, ‘ Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. ‘ It’s Inhumane. ‘

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: ‘ It’s 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear, But They didn’t Commit Any Crimes,So Shut Your Mouths! ‘ Way To Go, Sheriff!

Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes – not live in luxury until it’s time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can’t afford to have for themselves.

  1. I am so sorry to read about your daughters. I hope this guy is given the hardest road they allow. It is hard to understand why they did not get him on attempted murder.

  2. Thanks- I sometimes go off when I get going on personal issues – daughters are our daughters they were all I had and I also lost my son. A mother can’t always be level headed when thinking about her children so I apologize for going goofy – its all still very new. His case coming up within a month too.
    I was hoping folks would respond and take to sending notes to the BC prosecutor for me asking that charges no be reduced – but you are the only reply – how soon they forget a mother’s pain.

  3. I don’t think you need to apologize at all. Where can we send letters, do you have an email for the prosecutor or an address? Are their others we can send letters to?

  5. This was still pretty soon after the passing of my father. Things have remained hectic and different even to this day. I just now have read this for the first time.
    I probably saw the headline back then but did not connect George to the George who hurt your family so badly.

    How did the bum make out?
