When the new Warden comes in disguised as an inmate, he sees first hand all the corruption and scams the guards and prison officials and running. When he reveals himself, and starts to implement reforms to stop the corruption, the local business community, who had been benefiting from the scams, fights back, and the corrupt southern prison system, starts making political trouble for the new warden.

Why don't we build them a roof that won't cave in on their heads?
An insured roof, this time.
What do you mean?
The collapsed roof isn't covered at all - that's what I mean. But we DO have coverage for thrashing machines, balers, swathers, a tractor...
Sounds pretty sensible to me to have the things insured. I approved those policies personally.
You did more than that: your company sold us the policies. The only trouble with it is: we don't have any of that equipment on our farm....
