Watch Louis Theroux: Miami Mega Jail
America is struggling to process its growing criminal class – which is why mega-jails such as the one in Miami have been created. It’s a transitory place for those not yet sentenced with 6,000 prisoners ranging from some of America’s most dangerous men to those who have yet to see a court room. British filmmaker Louis Theroux gets up close to the Miami County Jail inmates in an unflinching portrait of hell in the US penal system.
