Worth watching!
25 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary was incredibly disturbing! But not the way most people would imagine from seeing the title. The murder that was caught on a security camera made me cringe. But what makes me more upset is the way our prison systems work. I can't imagine being in such a compromising situation as having to associate myself with a violent gang-which is discussed-just to survive. These are still human beings that need to learn *positive* self-expression which may or may not lead to rehabilitation. Maybe then these situations that are enacted for the sole purpose of "respect" could be avoided. No wonder why most inmates return...
