      By day, Boston, Massachusetts is both a modern metropolis and home to some of America’s earliest historical sites. But like all big cities, there is an underbelly of drugs and crime that is left up to the city’s law enforcement agencies to combat. Located just outside downtown is a key landmark to that battle – the Suffolk County Jail. Unlike prison where all the inmates have been convicted and sentenced, most jail inmates have only been charged with crimes and are still innocent until proven guilty. Suffolk County has an average daily population of 700 such detainees along with nearly 2,000 other inmates who have been convicted and are serving short sentences. In some units, a lone officer supervises inmates. Like a beat cop on the streets, it allows him to build rapport and actually has been proven to reduce fighting. But in jail, fights still break out. Policy dictates that both for his own protection and that of the inmates, the officer on duty not intervene until back up arrives. In this hour: an inmate defends himself against a violent attack -- now authorities want to know if he took it too far; another inmate takes creative steps to send his love to the girlfriend he allegedly, accidentally, shot; and two cellmates deal with drug addiction...and motherhood.moreless

      Boston, Massachusetts is by any standard a world-class city. But ever since its colonial days, some have called it a fighting town. And located in the heart of the city is a place for anyone who does their fighting outside a ring. More than 12,000 people a year pass through the doors of Boston’s Suffolk County Jail. And with an average daily population of 2,700 male and female inmates, someone reaches their boiling point virtually every day of the week. For those inmates all too willing to throw a punch… the jail has a special place: The Box. As one inmate says, "Separated from everything so you learn to deal with it. It’s called 'The Box Life'."moreless
