I watched my favorite documentary on Satellite TV that I got after coming across these http://www.expertsatellite.com/. Beyond Scared Straight is currently my favorite documentary show. It comes on every week. This is quite convenient for me since I work during the day. I have been hooked since the first episode aired three weeks ago.
It is a fascinating show that displays some things that troubled teens are currently experiencing. The show takes a deep look at how teen crime can be prevented if someone intervenes. Unfortunately, some of thes! e kids lack the proper parenting that could discourage them from participating in wild and unlawful behavior.
The prisoners in the show introduce the kids to real prison life.
I think this is a very interesting concept. Showing troubled teens the harsh reality of prison life can discourage them from a potential life of crime. It is interesting to see the expressions on the teens face once they come in direct contact with the prisoners. Some prisoners use harsh language in order to intimidate the kids. This is a stern tactic that can have outstanding results once the tour is over.
I think that teens in trouble should watch this show as well. This show will more than likely discourage them from going down a troubled path. I think that more prison tours should be established in order to reach troubled youth all over the country.
