One month, three chains, fifteen men – you thought it was ancient history, but it’s back. The ultimate punishment, the ultimate challenge, and sometimes the ultimate opportunity. Welcome to the Chain Gang. It’s the brainchild of popular and eccentric Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a man who is doing his best to reintroduce the wild west in the new west. He calls himself an ‘equal opportunity incarcerator.’ And at his Maricopa County Jail the vacancy sign is literally always lit up.
