When: Sun., Jan. 10, 7 p.m. 2016
The treatment of criminals in America will be explored at Lifetree Café on Sunday, January 10 at 7 p.m. The program, titled “Tough on Crime,” includes a film featuring Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona. The controversial sheriff has been praised and criticized for his treatment of prisoners. His jail prepares just two low-cost meals per day, restricts television viewing, places inmates in desert tents, and requires prisoners to wear pink underwear. According to Lifetree Café representative Craig Cable, Lifetree participants will delve into whether America’s justice system is too tough or not tough enough on crime. Cable said, “Some claim that prisons infringe on personal civil liberties. Others feel that prisons have become more like country clubs. We’ll explore whether America is more or less safe as a result of our criminal justice system.” Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13th St., Arcata. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting.
