Episode Summary

The Box Life
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
