Thursday night at 10. Beyond Scared Straight on A&E is viewing a segment filmed at Mecklenburg County Jail Central. It's the season premier. If you get a chance...I recommend checking it out.

I just set my DVR.

I remember when Scared Straight came out and it was really groundbreaking.

I'll have to watch it for the lol-factor. Meck Co jail isn't that bad. Been there, done that.

Thanks for the reminder. I mentioned on CD when they were filming the film at the jail. Surprised my friend who works there did not remind me.

I'm watching it now. it may help some of these kids, but I think the same problem exists in this how that does in their real lives-no consequences. The kid Jose just keeps smiling because he knows nothing is going to happen to him, just like in real life he is under the illusion that nothing will happen to him for being a punk. His statement about shooting someone who makes him angry is scary. He needs some serious reprogramming.

I watched part of it but the show just couldn't retain my short attention span. Your right, some of the kids kept smiling as if it were a joke. I hope this had some positive effect on them regardless.

PS: I enjoyed the Billy the Exterminator show filmed in Charlotte much more. About the 2 "Goosebusters" ladies in that oil goose eggs. Pretty neat!

I happened to turn on the Scared Straight and notice it was in the Mecklenburg Jail. Good show, I hope it has some sort of impact.

I also like the Billy the Exterminator. I wonder about the 2 older ladies that seemingly make a living from chasing geese. I thought it was funny how they sat back and let the geese attach Billy and his brother.
