    Their are many things to see in this documentary.. both inside and outside of the narrative line. I'll highlight just a couple.

    At the 46:46 mark he speaks with a young man that speaks to the reality of the decadence black life in the underclass of black america. And directly following that is a case of self-sabotage for reasons beyond even his own understanding.

    The creator of this documentary has his own purposes but through his pursuit of his own agenda we are able to see some things that we can use.. Most prison documentaries are selling the toughness of the system.. this one deals actually lets the people talk.. and though he doesn't understand the culture that they are speaking through.. nor does he understand the fact that many of the people he is interviewing are performing for their peers.. we do.. and so we can see what he may not be able to.

    and here is Part 1.






    at the 8:35 mark there is an interview with a man that was severely beaten by 12 other dudes. Check out what he was charged with in the first place.. and you'll see the reality of whats going on with the Jail system.

    This kind of takes me back to Civilization or Barbarism. I know a young brother...he was a dam genius for real. A black police woman lied on him. They sent the young 18 year old brother to Rikers and they gang raped him. He is not the same anymore. He stands on the street corners in a daze....where before he was in college, a straight A student and had his head in the right place.

    One more note....when there's a code 100 or fight called where the popo have to respond...the sisters are the worst. They come in swinging and kicking and attempting to stomp a brothers family jewels in the ground. That's why, when a sister works in that type of environment, technically, she's no more good for a man to have a loving relationship with. She's in a violent environment and the spiritual and psychological damage that she goes through from the prisoners as well as the officers is mind blowing. Sometimes if there's a female officer that the other officers want to get with, they'll go into a code and leave her hanging out there a little bit (meaning that they are going to let a prisoner bust her @ss a little bit) just to let her know that she needs them (the men officers) for protection.

    Now the white guy in the video has stated a probable truth where they are....but over in Jersey the story is different. In Jersey, as soon as you put your hands on someone, they refer it back to the street to get you another street charge. That's why you have to totally take them out or don't get it started. Furthermore, the white guy doing the interview could never have come into a spot over here....and if he did, a brother better not open his mouth to say ish to them, cut and dry!
