Description

This three-part series shows how a group of exported felons created jobs and contributed to the economic growth of small towns in the south where other industries failed. Most of them are murderers, sexual offenders from Wisconsin's over crowded prisons who were relocated to prisons in small towns in Tennessee and Texas. The move, however, also brought perils to these towns. A local guard was beaten up by inmates. He is now permanently disabled.
