Doing 'hard time' in the nation's jails
from The Crime Report
Before I had thought much about the distinction between jails and prisons, a local prosecutor suggested that I take my political science students to El Dorado Correctional Facility, a maximum-security state prison located about 45 minutes northeast of Wichita. We applied to the Kansas Department of Corrections and toured the facility in April 2016. I initially thought that the experience of going behind the concertina wire might help students understand the severity of conditions in American prisons.
