    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 7 - 7/12/09

    They are the inmates despised by other prisoners-child molesters and rapists. Now, Colorado has put nearly fourteen hundred of them into one prison-Fremont Correctional Facility - along with murderers, drug dealers, and thieves, who hate sex offenders. It creates a tense mix where nearly everybody lies about their crimes all the time, especially the child molesters. The officers face the daunting challenge of guarding the weaker inmates while also protecting themselves. And while officers contain and control the sex offenders behind the walls, prison therapists must prepare these men for life outside. Extensive treatment makes a big difference for public safety, but there is no guarantee these men won't seek out new victims. National Geographic provides a rare opportunity to see child molesters and rapists up close and to hear from them about their terrible crimes, the impact of treatment, and the dangers of life behind bars.moreless

    In prison, inmates do whatever it takes to outwit officers. It's an ongoing game of cat and mouse - a game for control. And the more rules and regulations that are imposed on the prisoners, the farther they'll go to get an upper hand. At North Carolina's Alexander Correctional Institution, the game is never ending.moreless
