The people in these shows are just fascinating to me, especially the women. How does one find oneself in jail? I mean, yeah, hitting your spouse or selling drugs or stealing something - but what leads up to that? There was a moment when each of these people crossed the line into criminal behavior. How does that happen?
This girl on tv now - she was arrested for passing bad checks, possession of marijuana and theft. She has "Kevin" tattooed under her right eye. Under her eye! She's 25 and has a 6 year old son. I just don't understand it. How??
Their stories are all similar and sad. Some talk about how much they hate jail/prison and how they're going to do whatever it takes to never go back in. Others worry that they've been incarcerated too long and will never be able to function once they are released. I can't help but wonder about those seconds right before the line was crossed - do they ever think about that moment?
