CRIMINALS IN THE MEDIA

Serving Life

An interesting article from Women In Crime Ink. It got me thinking about the various jail programs we have seen on tv through the years. Interesting. Informative. But are they really true representative of the prison population or just reinforcing our stereotypes?

We do know that there are some toffs, some rich daddy-boys, some white-collars in there, but where are they? Do they shy away from the cameras whenever a TV crew comes waltzing inside a prison? Are the broadcasters reluctant to interview them?

Any ideas? I would be interested in reading your opinion.
