Lockdown [electronic resource]: Utah State Prison

National Geographic Television & Film
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In Utah, a local gang has drawn the ire of larger, national gangs. But these homegrown thugs aren't small-timers. Their brand of gang loyalty is so extreme that membership passes from generation to generation, and their yen for feuds and conflict has now spilled into Utah State Prison. Over 25 percent of its 4,000-plus inmates have gang ties, and the most active gangsters flaunt weapons, shed blood, and order hits from behind bars. Venturing inside, this program shows what happens when an inmate's gang and family are one and the same.
