Ep. 4: High Stakes

In the midst of a federal investigation into Georgia’s prisons for civil rights violations, we decided to use one prison in South Georgia as a case study. The things we found are chilling. An 88-year-old man is shot while he’s sleeping. Another man is murdered one county over. A woman is found dead in a mobile home park. And somehow they all link back to the same prison, illuminating many of the complex problems that plague our criminal justice system. This…is Prison Town.
