Description

A KTVT-TV investigation exposes "the violent way some correction officers handle inmates in North Texas jails." The investigation dociments the "overuse of pepper mace and excessive force," and details a case, when an inmate "died at the hands of the correction officers." The story features a letter from an Amnesty International expert, "stating the treatment of the inmates ... was tantamount to to torture and cruel punishment."
