"Prison Love." Lockedup Raw. MSNBC. 2009. Television.
“Locked Up” is a television show that interviews inmates who are serving a life sentence. Each episode has different major issues/subject such as: gang violence, siblings incarcerated together, and successfully operating a drug business behind bars. Tuning I to this show teaches you the type of crimes that can get in those situations, scare you enough to make decisions that won’t get you there, and show the different types of weapons that can be made from the most miscellaneous objects. --Francis Mitchells 13:20, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
