Summary
A few years after he became sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, Joseph Arpaio reinstituted the use of convict chain gangs. He also found a way around the problem of prison overcrowding-with military-surplus tents and security fences. This program goes inside Arpaio's pride and joy, known as Tent City, where summer temperatures top 130 degrees and drop well below freezing on some winter nights. The scenes that take place here and on Arpaio's chain gang epitomize a detention industry in which cost-saving, primitive conditions are gaining favor.
