  1. we native american represent 50-60 percent of the inmates

    Why?

  2. ive no legs and my dad beats me for sex

  3. what a great man. all of his docs are amazing. keep em coming sir.

  4. I think this documentary scares me mostly because I’m a 5’0′ tall 90 pound female who would be dead just walking into some place like this…

  5. I’m developing such a crush on Louis Theroux as a result of this site! <3

  6. i’ve been in a detention center as they call it here in Canada….we native american represent 50-60 percent of the inmates. however we are 2 percent of the population. and the racism and tension in there is unbelievable. it’s funny how the institution will develop that there is always a balance of whites and natives. i have been in many tense situations where everyone has been getting ready for battle. is it a conspiracy?

  7. I like how they used the Dexter theme song lol.

  8. ,just imagin beeing in such a prison is just scary,only one thing can  make you survive in there,fight!i would just become completly violent and tough,stabbing anybody for the reputation,obviously the system doesnt help you in there,so that really seems like the only option,becoming more and more ruthless ,really a sad vicious cycle.

  10. its strange, ive seen a lot of prison documentary’s, and prison shows like lock’d up, and hard time,…and almost every inmate they interview seem pretty likable!, im not sure if they intentionally research the inmates that seem less aggressive, but its something ive noticed a lot

    • Well they probably don’t want to bring attention to them, and louis seems to be good with people, he’s always open minded.

      They won’t just punch him in the face right? 😛

  12. More cunningly conceived demoralization ops from ‘EUGENICS central control’
    —the elite state propaganda arm BBC.

    NOTE those subtexts —TOO many people/ people DIRTY/ religion STUPId and HOPELESS/
    human society DEPRESSING and DOOMED/ men REDICULOUS.

  13. This is great, I could watch this guy do anything.

  14. This is great, I could watch this guy do anything.

  15. This is great, I could watch this guy do anything.

  16. This is great, I could watch this guy do anything.

  17. at the 40 second mark Louis gets his lines mixed up “how could they be so brutal about something so trivial”

    • It wasn’t a mix up. He was talking about the inmates saying that 5 or 6 guys would jump you if you did something so small like offering some of your food to someone of a different race. The jumping being brutal and the offer being trivial.

  18. You can download all of his docs on http://www.isohunt.com

  19. Its the 5th part that has been mixed up. It seems to be missing completely, since I coulnd´t find it elswehere. The 6th part on the other hand contains material of Sony and is not available on Youtube, too. At least in my country, which is Europe.
    Thats very sad, since this is a veery interesting documentary. Anyone feel free to fix it, please.

  20. 3rd or 4th clip is wrong = jumps to another louis documentary about child molesters. and therefore viewers miss an interesting clip from this documentary.
