  • Prison For Life: Women's Maximum Security Prison (Sir Trevor McDonald Documentary)
    Sir Trevor McDonald meets more inmates inside two of Indiana's most dangerous women's prisons. Among them are Dawn Hopkins, who was sentenced to life for murdering her three-month-old son, and Sarah `Cindy' White, who was incarcerated as a teenager and will spend the rest of her life behind bars.
    The veteran broadcaster also hears the remarkable story of Linda Darby who, after escaping from jail in 1972, spent the next 35 years on the run - before the law finally caught up with her.

    I did 2 1/2 years in a woman’s prison in Massachusetts. I got out in 2012 and haven’t been in any trouble/arrested since the day I walked out of there. My charges weren’t drug related but I committed them because I was addicted to drugs. I’m 31 now, have two beautiful children, a loving husband, a townhouse that we own and a truly amazing life. The cell mate I had the longest was doing life. She had murdered a man who had abused her child. So many people are amazed that I still send her money and letters and cards. But she is truly one of the nicest and one of the most kind hearted people I’ve ever met. She’s getting older these days and I’m really trying to visit her, but I now live in Maryland and just don’t have enough money to travel up there but I’m determined to find a way. I don’t think she’ll ever know what a great impact she has made on me and how I live my life now.

      I really understand and relate to this comment!!! I did 2 years in Indiana, spent some of that time at the prison from this documentary. My charge was of a financial nature, no substance abuse, so I felt sort of like a tropical bird thrown off course during hurricane season because I had never been in trouble before and came from a "normal" life and now was suddenly in this strange underworld of prison. I met the occasional unsavory character, but also the best friends I have ever had! One of them just got released after 11 years! And one passed away from breast cancer and I have a memorial tattoo for her. Life is truly crazy.

      One thing you have to remember is that an interviewer can't be overly critical or harsh to the people interviewed. Otherwise they would most likely refuse to talk to Trevor or give him the bare minimum as far as personal details go. If they don't talk, there's no show. So Trevor has to speak with them with tact and neutrality. That doesn't mean he has to like or be friends with them.

      Smiling during such an interview generally can also be a sign of understanding, of looking forward and being loving and respectful to the person one is talking to and to the persons surrounding oneself. But if there are no remorse, no regretful feelings and compassion towards the persons one has damaged that severely, trying to see the consequences it has in the life of that persons until the end, feeling and suffering for it very deeply, than something very fundamental is lacking and evilness is still present. On the other side, as harsh and disturbing it may be concerning to what I have stated before, she is being very honest and not lying about the reality of here feelings or lack of thereon.

    I am so touched by how sweetly decorated the baby’s wing is. Obviously the babies didn’t choose to be born in these circumstances, I love the alphabet painted onto the wall and that their needs are well met. It’s not ideal for the baby but I hope that the mothers find purpose caring for their children. I’m sure that helps them stay straight in prison & after they get out of there.

      But at the same time they need to be resocialised. They need perspectives for their lives. The us justice system for pure punishment doesnt work: isolation is breaking the peoples minds. Because of the aim for punishment most of the imprisoned people will get back in prison.
      On top of that the us has the death sentence which makes them as bad as a murder themselfes.

    Now I know why he was knighted to "sir". His way of interviewing people is just something you don't see a lot of these days. He has respect for others, even though he might not agree with what they have done. He doesn't let his emotions take over. It's great journalism.

      The focus of the documentary is to put these women in the best light possible. He didn't let his emotions take over, but don't be fooled that he doesn't understand his job is to NOT say anything that makes them look bad. He did his job of shaping people's opinions, and he's good at it - but that's not journalism, which is reporting facts without any spin. What he's doing is definitely spin.

He remains calm and almost stoic in his responses. He allows the interviewee to reply and only interrupts for the purpose of clarification. He is genuine and sincere in his approach.

It's about people who commit suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco (I used to live in the Bay Area). It is a fascinating documentary ... maybe because the subject matter itself is so emotional. Anyway, I hope there is another part to this prison doc ..? I didn't know there was a part 2! So this was a nice surprise. Is there a part 3? I hope so! :-)

      @runningamok 5 ปีที่แล้ว +11

      nicole mcnaughton have you ever seen "TV Junkie"? It's a doc about a guy who works for a tv news show and he documents hours and hours of footage of his private life as he spins down into addiction and how it (life, love, family) falls apart and he just can't _stop_ himself (he's really likable too -- and his wife is this little Southern girl). It's from 2006 and is very well done. Here's a link, because it is not on TH-cam.
      Also, "Troublesome Creek," which is about grown children of aging farmers (their parents) and how the family has to auction off their farm to pay off debt (this is around the time of the American "farm crisis"). It's a very good show too, very real and very human (1995). Also _not_ on TH-cam so here's a link to that too:
      Also, if you haven't seen "Dear Zachary," you might want to give that one a try. It's on TH-cam and is about a woman, a younger man, an infant and a double murder. It is a really sad and really tragic show, but very well done.
      If you have any documentary suggestions for me, I'd love to hear about 'em! Also, sorry about your inability to work right now. I hope you are okay and just taking a needed rest. :-) Sorry this post is so long!!! Peace.

    You know. It never ceases to amaze me how much of a professional reporter and investigative journast Trevor is. He never openly expresses judgment or opinion and never tries to make connections to wider agendas. He simply presents the reality of the situation, the un distorted facts of the matter to the viewer and leaves it to the individual viewer to form their own opinions and judgements. If every so called "professional journalist" was like him I would actually watch the news and investigative reports. Trevor is what the words Educated and Professional were supposed to reflect. This is accurate and professional reporting and because of that it has immense educational value and is enjoyable to watch.

    I can hardly comprehend how a 16 year-old suffering from constant abuse who involuntarily murdered people would get life in prison. People change. She didn’t mean to do it and after all of these years, keeping her in prison is a waste. She could’ve had a perfectly fine life after a few years incarcerated, but the system is completely unfair and messed up so she’s stuck there while someone who has purposely killed a child is getting out.

      Exactly and if we put ourselves in her shoes, we will feel so bad. Like when she was younger, she faced sexual abuse from her own family and when she tried to escape that life, she ended up in prison. She even burnt herself trying to protect those people in the house who abused her. She didn't mean to kill them.It's been so long, she should be released now.

      The fire wasn’t accidental and it killed 2 adults and 2 children, I agree with you that it’s horrible but it’s justifiable. Also, regarding the lady who killed her child was sentenced due to “shaken baby syndrome” and there’s about 1000 of those a year, the difference in her case is that she called for help through 911/paramedics which shows that it wasn’t malicious. It’s a lot harder to fight a case of malicious intent when you burned down a house with her whole family in it the way she did.

    My dad was a probation and parole officer. He had to listen to cases everyday. He was the type that if children were involved in anyway, he would just close the folder. The sad thing is, he would have in front of the board in Columbia when someone was up for parole, so whatever my dad said then mean anything.
