How fake is the show, beyond scared straight?

I've always watched that show and been like damn... those are harsh jails/prisons..

I've visited 2 different jails and been incarcerated in 1 other, and have visited prison...

Never... have I seen anything as rowdy and as violent as those shows make it out to be. Maybe if you get beef with another inmate, but never have every person going ape **** unless it's a riot which that wouldn't be allowed for too long.

Those shows do scared me all right, but from my experience, if jails/prisons were actually like that, they would be scary haha. Wtf?

  • They want to scare them so they overdo it

    they don't want the kids to make the mistakes again

    Prison is bad and can make it even harder to find a good job

  • Is Beyond Scared Straight Real

  • You're fools. Even the ones who have been in the program and vouch for it. It's staged as hell and they have classification systems. You are classified with your own type. If you're non-violent and have the record/image of a pussy, you're with the rapeo's, rats, and DWI's.. Being "on the show" or in the program only validates that you got punked face to face and didn't realize it. Yeah, you look at a dude and smile or eat that candy on your pillow, you're gonna get f*****... in prison.... In some county jails, people act real tough because they are so heavily protected by the police. Those are the snitch jails with low population pods. You get to most city jails and as long as you know how to move and mind your own business, you may actually make the best of a shitty situation and have a ton of laughs. Not to say it is a good time, But when you have no choice in the matter your only option is to make fun from nothing. A little respect with minding your own business and not making friends with any rapeos or snitches and you will be fine. Everything on TV is a dmn joke and as long as you ain't got any funny charges like kiddie touchin' and you ain't a bird you're good. If you don't know what that means then you're not good and you better just stop tryin' to live a life you weren't forced to live. Doesn't matter how much good you do, everyone around you will ONLY remember the bad and never let you live it down. Facebook will become your enemy and so will every person behind the register of every store if you live in a small area. Social media will ruin you and you're whole life, people will never forget. It's life on the outside that you need to fear. That's when you look for ways to go back to your now-real-comfy lookin' cell.

  • For you People that said This show Is Fake it's not its Real Life and just because it's a Tv Show doesn't mean it's fake. Everything in beyond scared straight is real

  • Beyond Scared Straight A&e

  • The show isn't fake. It's 100% real. My brother works as a correctional officer, and he said the reasons why inmates are nice to kids is because they are forced to do so. If the inmates didn't comply (To be nice or not to attack the Juveniles), we would take away their food money, which means they would lose 100 dollars in food and health care, and would receive more Jail time.

  • It is not fake. It is a real program that they put teens through. They just have made a show out of it. I was in Texas Youth Commission which is a teen prison when I was a teenager and I was involved in this program many times. We did the same kind of things to the kids that came through and a lot of the time would make them cry. The point was to show them where they were headed and the things that really happen there.

  • The teens aren't fake, neither are their situations. Although one thing you gotta remember is that if they made a TV show about it they only had one thing in mind ; money. ALSO they wouldn't think twice about letting an inmate who m they believed to be any bit dangerous near the kids. Think about it. They would have a lawsuit on their hands the size of Texas if something were to actually happen to a child. (Also not to mention the injured child)

  • The show for the most part seems real, there a a few fake aspects such as the extremes in the jails, but they aren t preparing the kids for what jail will be like, they are preparing for what prison will be like, so they simulate prison like situations to deter the kids from further wrongdoing.
