Inside North Carolina women's prison( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proving that female prisoners struggle with the same conditions male convicts face, this MSNBC documentary goes inside a North Carolina facility filled with 1,100 troubled mothers, sisters, aunts, and even grandmothers. Warden Annie Harvey conveys the goals and frustrations of her job, while male officers acknowledge an ongoing challenge to maintain professionalism and objectivity. Although sexual relationships among inmates are discouraged, several openly gay prisoners share what life is like for their small community and their disdain for opportunistic guards. Rampant drug addiction and substance abuse are also addressed, along with the daily drudgery of-and poignant attempts to brighten-life inside an eight-by-eight-foot cell

Inside Wabash( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Situated in America's heartland among acres of Indiana cornfields, Wabash Valley Correctional Facility houses not just the state's most violent offenders but also a large population of the mentally ill. This MSNBC documentary looks at the challenges of confining thousands of hardened criminals in addition to those with deep-seated psychiatric needs. Wabash psychiatrist Dr. Mary Ruth Sims describes her work with a group of self-mutilating prisoners, while superintendent Craig Hanks and his staff outline their day-to-day challenges and the operation of the prison's SHU or secure housing unit. Viewer discretion advised: additional interviews feature severely deranged inmates who give accounts of their horrific crimes. Not available in French-speaking Canada. (46 minutes)
Inside Folsom( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You like horror movies? responds a Folsom State Prison inmate when asked to describe life in the penitentiary. "This is a horror movie." Virtually every inmate who appears in this MSNBC documentary-and perhaps a few of Folsom's guards-seems to share his opinion. Viewers are guided through the prison's antiquated infrastructure, from the general population areas to the dungeon-like Cell Block 5, where the sun literally never shines. Conversations with lifers, corrections officers, and warden Diana Butler shed light on Folsom's violent culture and the procedures and programs developed to improve it. Despite rigid organization and work opportunities, the inmates interviewed tend to use the word "program" only in reference to unsupervised self-rehabilitation
Return to Rikers island( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On an island adjacent to the Bronx sits one of America's most notorious jail systems, known for much of the past century as a place of inmate-on-inmate cruelty. But violence has decreased by 90 percent at Rikers since 1999. This MSNBC documentary examines Rikers then and now, spotlighting the measures that have reduced conflict among a population of 15,000 offenders. New York City Department of Corrections Commissioner Martin Horn and Rikers warden Frank Squillante promote the benefits of the CPSU, or central punitive segregation unit, and TSOs, or tactical search operations that can quickly and authoritatively enter cell blocks to ferret out drugs and weapons. Issues with gangs and recidivism demonstrate that Rikers' problems are far from over
Return to valley state( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is one of the largest women's prisons in the world, full of murderers, violent criminals, and drug dealers-but many at Valley State Prison are hoping to turn their lives around. Recorded at the jail in 2000 and again five years later, this MSNBC documentary profiles three women who contemplate the severity of their crimes-ranging from manslaughter to murder-and their chances for emotional and spiritual healing. The film also features Warden Gloria Henry, whose self-proclaimed duty is to help inmates rehabilitate, and guides viewers through a typical day at Valley State, from breakfast to educational programs to addiction therapy to lights-out. The often desperate situation of pregnancy behind bars is another major topic
