They are a trip to see how bad they got it in there is good thing for young teens to see, that jail is no joy ride.

  • To Anon up there: I would be straight up pissed if I found out they were taking my children to a jail/prison for a "field trip". No, it should not be mandatory. No field trip should....that's why parents have to sign for their children to go.

  • I think they should show these types of shows in school NOW. I also think they should take one day and make field trips to prisons and show them. Show them the realities. It should be mandatory.

    Show the kids what a life of crime will take them. Show them how its not fun on the inside.I worry about the workers in prisons cause Ive heard some mean stories and I know how some guards mess people up right when they are about to get released and what can they do( a friends son was locked up for breaking/entering) and one guy, in for 10 yrs about to leave the NEXT day he said one guard hit the other and they blamed it on the guy and he watched what happened. The guy got another 6 months or something and they picked on him all the time. There are rogue cops like the criminals they watch. Shame there is not better control. they all need therapy, its a tough job and I pray they all get the help needed inside and out.
