Synopsis by Perry Seibert

The documentary America's Toughest Sheriff profiles Joe Arpaio, a sheriff who has gained notoriety for his non-nonsense approach to law-enforcement. His controversial actions have earned him admiration and scorn in equal measure. The film showcases some of his more unconventional decisions, including instituting female chain-gangs and having ale inmates wear pink underwear.
