Maricopa County female inmates march for chain gang duty in Phoenix, Arizona October 21, 2003. The women are padlocked together by the ankle and marched military style to a van to be transported to their work site. The women volunteer for chain gang duty to get out of lockdown , where four prisoners are shut in a cell 8 x 12 feet wide 23 hours day. If they spend 30 days on the chain gang , picking up trash, weeding or burying bodies, they can get out of the punishment cell. REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton
Is there a glut of bodies just lying around Phoenix?
