Is Joe Arpaio's Job Really To Keep The Sick Locked-Up / Robert Daniels Jailed For Not Wearing A Mask

While I do realize that this is a tricky situation and Mr. Daniels is a risk to the community because of his refusal to wear a mask due to his sickness (tuberculosis). I just don't understand why they would put him in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "Concentration Camp" like jail.Would it not make more sense to put Mr. Daniels in a hospital ward even if it was a locked ward?
Speaking of Joe Arpaio, I wonder if his Mother dressed him up in pretty pink panties when he was a kid. Could that be the reason why he likes to see all those "Hardened Criminals" prance around in them. Maybe his Father should have taken a bigger role in bringing him up... BJC

Is Sickness a Crime? Arizona Man With TB Locked Up Indefinitely in Solitary Confinement
27-year-old Robert Daniels is being held against his will in a Phoenix hospital ward reserved for sick prisoners. If state officials have their way, he could be there for the rest of his life. Daniels is suffering from a deadly strain of tuberculosis known as XDR-TB. Doctors say he is virtually untreatable. He has been forced to live in a hospital cell in complete isolation. [includes rush transcript]
Daniels contracted the disease while living in Russia. He returned to the United States last year and agreed to a voluntary quarantine in residential care. But Daniels violated his agreement when he went outside without a mask. Daniels says he misunderstood how much of a health risk he posed, in part because he hadn't been forced to wear a mask in Russia.

Authorities detain sufferers of incurable TB strain
PHOENIX -- Behind the county hospital's tall cinder block walls, a 27-year-old tuberculosis patient sits in a jail cell equipped with a ventilation system that keeps germs from escaping.

Robert Daniels has been locked up indefinitely, perhaps for the rest of his life, since July. But he has not been charged with a crime. Instead, he suffers from an extensively drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis, or XDR-TB. It is considered virtually untreatable.
