Hard Time:Running the Joint

Running the Joint
44:09 | 2012

Categories: Documentary, Politics

Vegas Jail is purgatory. It's where inmates await trial, await their sentence and worry about their fate. But even in limbo, life goes on. Gang members run hustles and play cat and mouse with the officers on shift. Inmates have relationships—however temporary—in a bid to capture some sense of normalcy in an otherwise surreal world. And porters have some of the only jobs in the facility. The job helps pass the time but also puts them at the center of the jail black market economy.
