In December 2014, Mother Jones senior reporter Shane Bauer started a job as a corrections officer at a Louisiana prison run by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the country's second-largest private prison company. During his four months on the job, Bauer would witness stabbings, an escape, lockdowns, and an intervention by the state Department of Corrections as the company struggled to maintain control. Bauer's gripping, revelatory investigation is the cover story in Mother Jones' July/August 2016 issue. Read the full story here: http://www.motherjones.com/prison

In the first episode of Mother Jones's exclusive six-part video series, Bauer visits Winn Correctional Center for the first time and dives into four weeks of training as a prison guard.
