In the U.S., 185 000 women are in prison. This is more than in any other nation on earth. The prison boot camp system is a new alternative to prison warehousing. These boot camps are low-security and usually house 185 males and 22 females. First-time offenders with a sentence of eight years or less, can vacate their sentence with a 120 day boot camp session. By the looks of it, it seems pretty damn tough. Check out this reportage on Dixon Springs Boot Camp in Illinois, by Julia Rendleman.
