>> all the way up, lift your tongue up. >> the intake center is located at one of the jail's two facilities. the nashua street jail. >> this ain't wall street. >> boston, massachusetts, has long been a city associated with higher learning. but. city's residents find themselves on a less productive path. every year more than 12,000 people are brought through the doors of the city's suffolk county jail after being arrested. >> all the way up, lift your tongue up. >> the intake center is located
10:02 pm
at one of the jail's two facilities. the nashua street jail. >> this ain't wall street. this ain't bourbon street. it sure ain't rodeo drive. this is nashua street. >> the new arrivals have not been convicted of the crimes for which they were arrested and are considered innocent until proven guilty. >> come on in, step in. >> those who are not quickly released or bailed out will be housed at nashua until their cases are closed. and every year, thousands of men and women undergo a demanding application process to secure and manage inmates while they're
10:03 pm
in jail. less than 1% will make it to the final stage, cadet training. >> there was 40 people, 40 candidates that were brought into this academy class. there was upwards of 10,000 applications for the job. >> the cadets must pass a series of difficult tests to become suffolk county jail deputies. >> we teach them everything from combatives which is defensive tactics to firearms, to first aid, fire safety, approximately 40 different components of what they do. this morning, we're going to do some defensive tactics training. they have some what they call ground defense. we've actually brought in some of the ground defense experts from another county along with our own people. >> you really have to be back here. it's imperative. >> you don't want to wind up on the ground. you want to be in an altercation, but when that happens, you want to be able to deal with it and be able to come out in the end and go home and see your family. >> boom! that's what's going to get you out of that thing. the explosiveness allows your hips to get through there. all right? ready? explode! recover. >> among the current class of 40 cadets is 23-year-old abrianna spagnolli. >> there's only five, including myself, five women in our chas
10:04 pm
right now. actually there isn't very many women working for the department right now. but, you know, it isn't too much pressure, but you do want to, you know, stand proud as a woman and do everything the men can do even better if possible, obviously. >> 27-year-old kharee mallard is also a cadet.
10:05 pm
10:06 pm
10:07 pm
10:08 pm
they were able to bringing it back yesterday on its own power
10:09 pm
and you can see the ship's behind me. >>. [ speaking foreign language] >> so the ship and the crew, they performed as expected, very professionally. they were able to bring the ship back. the ship is called the fighting fits. it's named after a lieutenant in the vietnam war awarded the navy cross for his valor during the vietnam war. >> admiral is basically discussing the uss fitzgerald and we're waiting to hear more about the sailers that were presumably discovered when it was brought back to port. >> the navy understand what happened under my authority, we will launch a jag investigation into this collision. i will appoint a flag officer to lead that investigation and there will also be a safety
10:10 pm
investigation. >> and the vice admiral is saying they will be investigating the cause of this incident. the uss fitzgerald collided with the ship off of japan and you can see that there was damage on the vessel. and some of it -- some of the ship was flooded, which is why it was tugged back to port. >> the us coast guard will take the lead on the marine casualty investigation. and we recognize there are other organizations that have vetsed interests in this incident and we expect them to conduct their
10:11 pm
own separate investigations and more information will be forthcoming on this investigation. >> the vice admiral is saying there will be more investigations here as we go forward with this. >> as you're aware, we have found a number of -- the remains of a number of missing ship mates and our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those ship mates. [ speaking foreign language] >> so i have concern for the families. i will not -- i will decline to
10:12 pm
comment at this time. we owe it to the family and friends of these ship mates and hope you can respect this process. >> we've been listening to vice admiral joseph mccoy discussing the uss fitzgerald incident. seven missing sailers found in the compartments. right now they continue to our regular programming after a quick break.
10:13 pm
without warning. a fight on the six-two unit has landed 20-year-old alex gonzalez in the jail's infirmary. >> i got hit with a tray. i fought back and that's all that happened. >> but after reviewing surveillance footage, captain michael caldwell and other jail staff learn just how brutal the fight actually was. >> what we see here is mr. alex gonzalez. mr. gonzalez has just received his food tray from the food line and he's ready to sit down and have dinner. and what we also see is this is detainee darrel couch. he's entering the food line here. one of the interesting things with mr. couch, you notice the routine has been to grab a cup
10:14 pm
of juice along with the food tray. mr. couch doesn't grab any juice because his intention is not to sit down to a meal. >> took the tray and rammed it right into his face. right into the orbital socket. hits him with that and was immediately pounding him with punches, hitting him with everything he could get, one time slams him to the ground. one time had him in a reverse head lock and drove his head into the floor. >> what our protocols in the suffolk county sheriff's department call for is the officer waits for backup before breaking up that fight so as not to endanger him. and you notice that as soon as he sees the entry of the team, he's moving to break up that fight. there they do, and they remove the combatants, separate them fairly quickly. >> gonzalez, who is awaiting trial on an armed assault charge to which he's pled not guilty, was immediately taken to the jail infirmary for treatment of injuries to his right eye and head. >> did you get any good swings in? >> i don't know. i tried. i was hurt.
10:15 pm
he got me good with the tray. >> while the attack on gonzalez was severe, it was prompted by a seemingly minor matter. >> that fight actually occurred because alex gonzalez owed darrel couch money for chess losses. apparently they were playing chess, alex lost, owed money for the losses, refused to pay, started a fight. >> the jail's medical staff is determined that gonzalez's injuries are serious enough that he should receive additional treatment at a nearby hospital. he will be handcuffed and escorted by sheriff's deputies to the emergency room. >> it happens in jail. this is what happens. i'd have done it, so you've got to expect [ bleep ] like that to happen to people. >> gonzalez recovered from his injuries, and his attacker was given 17 days in segregation for starting the fight. finding themselves on the wrong end of such a brutal attack is usually the biggest fear of inmates who have just arrived in jail for the first time.
10:16 pm
>> there are some inmates who come here that they've never been locked up before and they come here, and it is a scary place. and it's those individuals that you tend to be more concerned about because they're sort of lost and they are so young. >> such is the case for 19-year-old sherman badgett. >> i know i'm a good kid. i do what i got to do. go to school, had a job out there, take care of my family. >> badgett was arrested as a high school student and has been detained without bail at nashe awful street for nearly a year while he awaits trial. >> never thought i'd be in a position like this. i missed a lot. i missed a lot. my girl's birthday, my mother's birthday, grandmother's birthday. i'm about to miss everything. >> if convicted, badgett faces a 25-year-to-life sentence on a
10:17 pm
charge of first-degree murder. he has pled not guilty. >> sherman badgett is torn between two worlds. do i want to do the right thing? do i want to excel academically? make my family proud? or do i want to do what my peers are doing in the neighborhood? what's right and what's wrong? he seems conflicted between the two worlds. >> this is where we live. we ain't got much in this room. >> badgett is accused of shooting and killing another student during a high school dance. he denies being the shooter. >> fight broke out, somebody was waving a gun in the gym. so basically everybody started running from the gym. then you hear three shots went off. the friend in front of the door, he got shot once, it only took one shot. that's all it takes. >> authorities could not immediately identify the shooter. badgett was arrested nine months
10:18 pm
later while he sat in a high school classroom. >> it was the u.s. marshal that came and picked me up. they brought me to the homicide unit. started questioning me. they say, you're being charged with first-degree murder. then i came here. >> sherman was attending a special magnet school for gifted and talented children in boston who excelled in math and science. sherman's school was very concerned that he wasn't going to be able to finish out his school year and they wanted him to graduate and get his diploma from their school. so i worked closely with the headmaster. we brought work in for sherman. he did it thoroughly and rapidly without any help. and we sent the work back to his school and shortly thereafter they mailed him his diploma. it was very special. >> since receiving his diploma,
10:19 pm
badgett spends his time studying his casework for an upcoming trial that is still more than eight months away. >> wednesday's my birthday, my 20th birthday. i'll be 20 years old on my first birthday being in here. hopefully i'll be out before my 21st birthday. coming up -- the cadets meet the inmates for the first time. >> hands behind your back, palms up. >> so do four boys from boston. >> you got [ bleep ] dripping down your face, what you crying for? whoooo. finding the best hotel price is now a safe bet. because tripadvisor searches

10:22 pm
at the suffolk county jail in boston, the new class of 40 cadets are about to get their first experience of direct inmate interaction as part of their training to become jail deputies. among them are kharee mallard abrianna spagnolli. >> in about ten minutes we're going to go down to the 2-2 unit for a shakedown. a total of 34 cells. make sure you have your protective gloves on and
10:23 pm
verbalize what you want from these people. inmates will only do what you allow them to do. if there's any issues, contact one of us. if there's any questions, contact one of us. is that clear? questions? >> sir, yes, sir. >> all right. >> a shakedown is a little bit different from a room search whereas you actually handcuff the inmate, bring them out of the room, search the room with a three-person team. >> forward, march. >> and then at the end of it, they get stripped searched and placed back inside their room so you can be virtually assured the room is clean. >> sir, stand up, please. >> hands behind your back, palms up. >> separate your feet, sir. >> behind your back.
10:24 pm
>> looking for nuisance contraband. health and welfare type thing. milk, food they might have taken off the feeding line. things like that. they're also looking for contraband, weapons, drugs, anything like that. >> what's in the pocket? >> tea bags. >> tea bags? >> guys, make sure all that milk comes out because you don't know how long it's been there for. >> so far, we've been in here for about, what, 15 minutes and this is as far as i got. so it's like you want to get every inch. i'm breaking a sweat, so i feel better taking my time and finding something or not even finding nothing than rushing through it and overlooking four or five things. >> they did very well. they did exactly what they were trained to do. they've been doing an outstanding job. >> shakedowns like these will become commonplace should the officer candidates make it as jail deputies. >> every day we conduct random cell searches that are computer generated. however, in addition to those we do targeted cell searches based on our prior knowledge of inmates, based on intelligence we might gather throughout the
10:25 pm
facility that contraband might be present. whether it be drugs, weapons, et cetera inside the housing units. >> today the sheriff's emergency response team or sert is focused on an inmate with a history of assaultive behavior. >> we're about to go into our 1-5-2 segregation unit for a cell search for contraband. inside inmate deven gallop's cell. >> there you go. back against the door. >> inmate gallop is known for making weapons. he usually doesn't go too many days without trying to manufacture something. you know, periodically every couple of weeks we'll take the opportunity to search his cell. and most times it's lucrative. >> i know they're coming. i can hear them. i know what cell they're coming to. they're not coming for nobody else but my cell. [ bleep ] [ bleep ]. >> just let us search your cell, all right? >> they just refer to me as someone who causes trouble. probably don't trust me, probably always think i got a weapon on me at all times. >> because creative inmates can turn almost anything into a weapon, deputies must be especially vigilant.
10:26 pm
during his six years as one of the jail's senior investigators, jonathan spinelli has amassed a significant collection of inmate-made weapons. >> this piece of evidence is a wall plate and this is a piece of metal but this can be filed down and the metal would file down to a very sharp point. an inmate could use this as a cutting instrument where they could use it as a knife or some sort of sharp instrument to cut them in the throat, the face. these are metal rods filed down, most likely this looks like it was part maybe of a chair or the heating vents. they have these slats on the heating vents they can rip them
10:27 pm
off of. that's pretty common. you can carry this and no one would know it's in your possession. you could walk out of your cell with it and you could stab somebody with it, you could stab an officer with it. >> the ingenuity behind some weapons is almost beyond belief. >> this is a paint ball. it's very hard, probably about very similar to a small rock. and what inmates do with this is they chip the paint off the walls and they stick it in a copper container and they heat the water and they soften the paint to where it majors it very pliable, and they can use and it round it into a ball such as this. and what they would do with this then is they drop this into a sock and they could make some sort of weapon out of it. it's an extremely difficult substance once it's molded together and dries and hardens. they're very difficult to break. if you were to take this and you were using this as a sock, you could -- and again, with the significant amount of force that i slammed it against the desk here, it didn't break. it didn't even chip it. >> this time, no weapons have been found in gallop's cell. >> keep your hands over your head. stand up and face the window. stay facing the window the whole time.
10:28 pm
>> i don't know why i act up sometimes. it's like sometimes i just get bored. i look for excitement. i just look for somebody, you know, some attention sometimes is why i act up sometimes. something to do, you know, get the sert team up here and have them come up here for no reason. it's excitement sometimes. >> shirt, pants. >> i think anybody would be lying if they didn't say when they come to work everybody knows that the threat is always there, the possibility of being injured is there. and that's why we can't be complacent. we have to continue to be very vigilant at what we do. you know, the majority of us do a very good job at that. we only have each other to look out for, so. coming up -- >> pick up your feet and move. >> four boys learn what it means to be an inmate. >> is this where you want to go? look around. >> and sherman badgett gets a special visit. >> i'm just glad that i seen her on my birthday. made secretariate greatest racehorse who ever lived? of course he was strong... ...intelligent. ...explosive. but the true secret to his perfection...
10:29 pm

10:32 pm
the deputies who manage the day-to-day operation of boston's suffolk county jail have numerous responsibilities that all fall under one primary goal. safely securing the men and women who are incarcerated here. >> are you all right? >> but jail officials also put
10:33 pm
resources into keeping young people from ending up here in the first place. >> because jail is glamorized so much in film and music and other places, they really don't have any idea what it's actually like. and this shows them what it is actually like. >> today, four boys ranging in age from 12 to 16 have just arrived at the jail for a visit. all four have had run-ins with the law. >> everybody stand up. >> deputy justin plaza heads up the program known as jailbreak. >> jailbreak is geared towards kids that are headed towards -- in the wrong direction. >> put these uniforms on over your clothes, hurry up. >> they're not doing the right thing, making bad choices. and we just bring the kids in and show them what jail life is really like. >> how old are you? >> 12. >> why are you here? >> i cut a teacher. >> you cut a teacher? look at me, you're talking to me, right?
10:34 pm
>> yeah. >> so why are you looking down at the ground for? i'm the one talking to you. you're the one talking to me. you look at me. >> they have this false sense of toughness to them. so those are the ones that i really have to go after to break them down. >> down to you. why are you here? >> possession. >> how old are you? >> 16. >> are you kidding me? you're going to be in one of these units if you continue to do the things that you're doing all right? in a month. i give you less than that. okay? 17 years old you will walk through the backdoor and you will not leave. you understand me? you will not leave. that's what's going to happen to you. that's where you're going. every single one of you, 12 years old, almost 17 years old -- take your hands out of your pants. don't let me see you with your hands in your pants again. keep your mouth shut. i'm tired of you. all right. every week -- shut up! >> the boys are cuffed and escorted into the jail. >> congratulations, you guys
10:35 pm

[ bleep ]. >> time's up, you little bitch. >> it's really not to scare the kids, just to show the kids, jail's not where you want to be. maybe if i'd have went to one of the programs and seen how jail is really like, i wouldn't have ended up in here. >> welcome to nashua street jail. >> is this where you want to go? cutting people? stabbing people, this is where you're going to end up. all right? look around. everybody follow me, let's go. >> did it scare you? >> just kind of. >> you want to cut people, huh? i'm going to put you in there with them.

10:40 pm
you do your job well. >> so even if we get a group of five kids and we could reach three of them and we'll keep those three from coming into the jail, we did something. even one. we did something right. >> while the jailbreak program attempts to keep young men out of jail, it's too late for some others. 19-year-old sherman badgett was a senior at his school for academically gifted students when he was arrested on suspicion of gunning down a young man outside a high school dance. he is charged with first-degree murder and has pled not guilty. for nearly a year, he's managed to cope with life behind bars thanks to the support of a friend on the outside. >> this is a picture of naomi. she made that picture look good. this is mainly all hers right here.
10:41 pm
>> today it's badgett's 20th birthday and naomi has come for a visit. >> turn around. face that way. >> now i feel like she's taken a lot of pain off my shoulders, all the stress off me by coming to see me, visiting me. she's doing a lot for me right now. >> he used to date my sister, so that's how we became real close. >> and? >> and we're kind of talking. yeah. my sister at first was upset about the whole thing. i guess she felt like because her and sherman's really not together anymore i shouldn't be helping him or doing what i do for him.
10:42 pm
but like i already told my sister and i explained it to her that, you know, when i make a promise, i'm going to keep my promise. and i promised sherman that no matter what, i'm going to always be there for him. >> you're allowed one brief embrace. remain seated. there's no kissing allowed. >> okay. >> okay? >> yes. >> my sister was upset, but she came to understand that it is what it is. i already made a promise, so it's going to happen. >> the jail does not normally allow contact visits for detainees, but due to filming restrictions in the visiting room, they set aside an area to accommodate our cameras. >> okay. okay then. okay then. >> hi. >> what's up, man? >> how you doing? happy birthday. >> how long's it been? >> a year. >> oh, my god. >> and you didn't even write me for like -- >> a month. >> more than that. i'm not writing. you better catch up to all of the letters i wrote you. yes, sir, i'm not writing you. >> i'll write you right now. >> don't be -- no -- >> in order to continue seeing badgett, naomi must visit the jail for quite a while. badgett's trial is still eight
10:43 pm
months away. and even then, his future is uncertain. >> okay, guys. you got to finish up your visit. it's almost over. >> i don't want to let you go. >> i love you. >> i love you. i'm going to call you tonight. 9:05. >> time to go. >> get a hug? >> love you. >> it's sad. just to see him leave, not being able to touch him for a while. i just really want him to come home. >> i'm just glad that i seen her on my birthday. it was a -- to me it was a gift. it was a gift to me. coming up -- >> he cannot make it housed with anyone. he cannot rec with anyone. >> a new chapter for deven gallop.
10:44 pm
>> we had to do something about that. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony. together, we are perfectly balanced. our senses awake. our hearts racing as one. i know this is sudden, but they say...if you love something set it free. see you around, giulia thank you so much. thank you! so we're a go? yes! we got a yes! what does that mean for purchasing? purchase. let's do this. got it.

so you can get business done. just turn on cars.coms on tprice dropswant? and get real-time notifications that could help save you money. use and save. [hissing] uh- i- [sound of wrench] [intricate guitar riff]
10:47 pm
[engine starts] [guitar continues] at boston's suffolk county jail, maintaining the safety of inmates and staff is a top priority. key to that goal is identifying and segregating inmates with violent histories, inmates like deven gallop. >> he's pretty notorious here due to his gang affiliation and his willingness to fight not only inmates but staff. he cannot make it housed with anyone, he cannot rec with anyone.
10:48 pm
and so we had to do something about that. >> the first step was housing gallop in a one-man segregation cell. now, even though he has an open case in a nearby court, jail officials have appealed to the state prison system to take him back where he can be better managed. >> we don't like to keep inmates in segregation for extended periods of time. we know that it's not good for their mental health. we have been working on a transfer for him to the state for about four months. and they said no twice, and this past time they said yes. sometimes they will accept inmates if they are extremely violent here, and there's nowhere else where we can put them. >> gallop will now transfer to state prison while he awaits trial on his charges. how long he'll stay depends on the outcome of his case. >> if i'm found guilty they're probably going to give me 15 years. if i'm not found guilty, then i go home next year. hopefully, you know, i get not guilty. you got to survive one way or another. i've just got to maintain, that's all i know. >> gallop's transfer might solve
10:49 pm
one immediate problem for the jail. but the cadets who might soon be deputized to work there know they can encounter the next deven gallop any time. they are now in their final class, firearms training. >> man with a gun, top, rack. grab a light. re-engage. >> though deputies don't carry firearms inside the jail, certain positions such as transporting inmates back and forth to court require that officers be firearm certified. >> all right. start out with the baton drill, okay, good verbalization. >> to pass the course, the cadets must fire 26 rounds at targets from various distances. >> you know the deal, all right? >> i shot 26 rounds. three ended up outside the target. so i can only have two outside the target, so i can make up two
10:50 pm
rounds for my one outside. so i can -- what i'm going to do is go back there and just shoot twice from the farthest away and have to get it in here. if not, i have to redo the 26-round course two more times. which i've already done once. >> cadet kharee mallard has an even a greater challenge, he missed four times and must now be perfect to avoid retaking the course. >> take your time for me, all right? here we go. >> police, don't move! >> don't move! gun! >> all right. in front of your target. >> i don't know. >> got it. >> good job. >> good job, you guys. >> thanks. >> all right. >> means i can carry a gun for the suffolk county sheriff's
10:51 pm
department, right? >> but mallard was not quite as accurate. he only landed two out of the four shots in the target. >> wednesday, you'll be coming back, okay? >> very frustrating. very, have you frustrating. >> two out of two. little things. little things that make this, i guess, perfection. you know what i mean? it's little pieces that you've got to get right. and one little thing, if you screw it up, this is where you

>> what you been reading? there's a bunch of stories in corinthians. >> always knew him to be an intelligent, smart young man. certainly someone that would've benefited from a mentor. just more, again, more an individual who needed to be motivated and not someone where you think, you know, unless something is done, this person is on the path to destruction -- no, not that kind of individual. >> while badgett's future is anything but certain, today he will become one of dozens of inmates baptized at the jail each year. >> he was very excited about the opportunity to get baptized while he was here. in fact, you know, in the weeks leading up to this, or in the days leading up to this, all he was talking about. it was all he was talking about. so in my mind, you know, this is

going to serve as another source of encouragement for him. this is a symbolic thing that we do. and it's indicative of the burial and the resurrection of jesus christ. old things have passed away. and, behold, all things have become new. so the old you goes in and the new you comes out. also the other thing i'm going to tell you is this. that unless a change has taken place on the inside, then this won't matter. the only thing that will happen today -- if you haven't changed on the inside, the only thing that will happen today is that you'll just get wet. amen? praise god. you need to take off your shoes and your socks. >> you are going to be the light of 6-2. you amen? uh-huh, yeah? not just your smile.

>> yep, get in. i want you to face that wall . i want you to sit down. exactly. there you go. extend your legs and your back, back here. come back here. there you go. bring your body over there. cross your arms. praise god. sherman in obedience to the commands of jesus christ and all your professional faith, my brother, we do now baptize you in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy ghost. amen. amen, praise god. you need to get up. amen. >> amen. >> praise god. amen. >> there you go. amen. amen. >> all right. >> it felt good. i can't remember the last time i was in water like that. >> you have to always hold out hope and especially in a place like this. giving up -- giving up is the worst thing you would want to do. there are different ways of dying. you don't have to die physically, but to lose hope, you can walk around from one place to another, but there's no life in you. >> i feel fresh. i feel like i just made a change.
