I Went Undercover in America’s Toughest Prison
É estranho ler o artigo que a Vice publicou sobre um dos seus reporters indo para uma das mais perigosas prisões americanas. Estranho pode ser pouco, leia o trecho abaixo e vá direto para o link do artigo.
I didn’t believe that a “concentration camp” could exist in America until, in Phoenix, Arizona, I saw one with my own eyes. Maricopa County is a fuzzy-lawed place where sentenced and un-sentenced inmates alike do hard time together. Maricopa encompasses Phoenix, one of the most conservative and violent cities in the state of Arizona. No story on jails in the USA is complete without a stretch here, for there is no bigger disgrace in America than the six jails of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO). One, Maricopa County Jail, became so full that, in 1993, the sheriff had to put up Korean War-era surplus tents in the searing desert to contain the overflow.
