"'Death Penalty' uncovers a shocking story of inmates literally sentenced to death by being locked inside Houston's Harris County jail. Each was allowed to die after pleading for medical attention but being denied. Seven died -- all but one within previous 18 months. They could have been saved, but the jail -- third largest in U.S. -- has one doctor for nearly 4,000 inmates."
