Court TV investigates the use of "detention trailers" in a Texas state prison. "Inmates at the State Prison in Gatesville, Texas, are locked outdoor in steel cages if they fail to keep pace with others assigned to chop grass in the brutal August heat." With surveillance equipment, Court TV watched as women were placed in the cage in handcuffs in 104-degree heat with limited access to water and bathroom facilities.
