Default Powerful Video Series - Trapped: Mental Illness in America's Prisons (KY)

Mod: I originally posted this in the mental health section, but I hope it's okay to cross-post this here because this was filmed in Kentucky State Reformatory in La Grange, Ky. I apologize in advance if this isn't OK to do.

This was a very well done article with video/pictures. Powerful and slightly disturbing at times, so be warned.

Trapped: Mental Illness in America's Prisons:
This was filmed inside Kentucky's Correction Psychiatric Correction Unit

Printed Article:

Main Video:

Video: Interview with the inmates:

Video: In Their Corner, video of Inmates who are Inmate Watchers

there so called treatment at ksr is a joke. i was there in cptu for over a year and watched i dont know how people die, not old people but 24,26,31. either from there own hand or ''not wake up for food. they would lock u down for the smallest miss step and it would be for 24hrs no break.i will never forget my time there and some times i wake up in the middle of the night from dreams that i was back there......
