• Weekdays women prisoners in a US prison
In the US city of Phoenix, Arizona, there is a prison called Estrella. His very fame it acquired thanks to the fact that is the only one in the United States in which to re female prisoners used punishments program called Chain Gang. Simply put, it involves the sharing of a black prisoner and unskilled work in the course of which they are constrained between a long chain.
The content of this material intended only for adults (18 and over).
In general, this system has been traditional for the southern states of the USA in the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, and in 1955 abolished both inhumane and does not meet the spirit of the time. However, in 1995 it again began to be applied to the male contingent in some prisons the southern United States of America. And in prison Estrella downtown Phoenix decided to go even further - to extend the system of such punishment, and women on the simple grounds that both women and men in the United States have equal rights and, therefore, no one should make any concessions.
But enough lyrical digressions - time to move on to the point. Under existing rules, this program is called "Last Chance" and can be assigned only to women prisoners, who are serving their sentences for less serious articles (driving type while intoxicated, false testimony, petty fraud and theft of goods in supermarkets) and for a period not more than 1 year. To some it may seem surprising, but the punishment in the form of a snare and a chain of free community service for women prisoners choose for themselves entirely voluntary way. The reasons that encourage many American zechek make such a choice, very simple. According to verdicts of courts, in spite of the relatively short time of his release, the majority of them are appointed by the harsh conditions of serving the sentence (something like punishment cells when expressed in the Russian style). This mode requires mandatory penalties wearing striped prison robes, bezvylazno finding prisoners in 2 - 4-bed chamber for 23 hours per day and 2 meager meals.
The prisoner is also forbidden to have around salt, cigarettes, coffee, ketchup and mirrors, listen to music and watch television (except for transmission of the weather and how to prepare delicious food), but for any trip to the nurse they have to pay $ 10 and see his coming them to a meeting relatives only through the glass. The trick here is that after serving a 30-day period for voluntary Spent chain and free public works convicted women receive special certificates, and with it the right to resettlement in the overall camp with lighter regime further punishment.
In turn, the system Chain Gang involves the binding of a long chain of 5 arestantok and joint execution of such works as cleaning of dust on roadsides, mowing weeds on vacant lots (on the local 40 - 45 degree heat) and dumping the homeless dead on city cemetery. A main aim of using such a system of punishment, according to the chief of the prison, is to train short-sighted thinking inmates for discipline and organization in their actions and for all to discourage their desire to ever again allow offenses in their lives.
