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
