[dramatic music] So what we’ll do now
is we’ll go down there. We’ll pull this guy out. AARON PORTO (VOICEOVER):
What did he do to obtain the charges that he has? BRIAN DAVIS (VOICEOVER):
He was already in jail. He was an active Sure o. AARON PORTO (VOICEOVER):
[bleep] The most significant experience that I’ve had so far
with gangs is with the Sure os. [cheering] I was working in housing in 3A. When I showed up to my unit. And that entire pod was
completely separated. They sent inmates
to other facilities. They sent inmates
to other units. And I was told that there
was a hit on my life with the California Sure os. And it’s mainly due to the
fact that they just didn’t like the way I enforced rules. The way I look at it, though,
is if an inmate likes you, then you’re really
not doing your job. You know what, I don’t think
you could ever be sure. So it is a very– it’s very scary. Can you sit down right there? AARON PURTO: Davis
is interviewing an inmate to determine
if he’s still dangerous. I had to hang back because, you
know, I’m not an STIU member. But Ariel is in
charge of the unit. So she can help
with the interview. I really would like
to be in there. It would be very
interesting to me. But I believe that
day’ll come eventually. BRIAN DAVIS: I’m doing
an assessment here. I’m going to
determine how good you are to come out in public here. All right. The gist of this program
is that everybody here is at the end of the line. They’re done with
the gang [bleep].. They’re not good with
their gang no more. Whatever the case is, this
is the end of their line. So I need everybody here
to be on the same page, which is come out, get along in
a general population setting. I need to know there’s
not someone here that’s going to [bleep] that up. Do understand that you
are going to be coming out in this population with
people who are in active gangs still? You feel good about that? Do you have an issue with that? What I’m more concerned about
is where are you going to be, and where your
head’s at, if they put another Sure o in the pod. Do you have an issue with
active gang members as it is? You don’t? Then you have a [bleep] issue. [bleep] You planning on
assaulting anyone? [bleep] Come on. This inmate seems to be
pretty worked up and agitated. BRIAN DAVIS: No active
Sure os, no nothing. No nothing. Well, I’m going to
roll his cap back. [bleep] Why would you say
something so [bleep] stupid? Wait. BRIAN DAVIS: If I could
smack you with this book, I would do it. Sarge, this [bleep]
[inaudible] acting aggressive– BRIAN DAVIS: I’m going
to roll his cap back. Come on, man. That’s an issue. [sighs] You’re
killing me, Purto. I haven’t been able to do my
job at all today because of you. I was just looking out
for your safety, bro. I was hoping you
wouldn’t have done that. Purto, he wants to go out
there and get the bad guy. But as far as STIU is concerned,
the super cop mentality, it could be a hindrance. I wanted the inmate
to feel like he could talk to me about anything. I didn’t want him
to feel pressured, as far as who was in
there or anything else. When he sent the sergeant
in, it broke up the dynamic. To be part of this
group, you have to be able to use your head. You have to have a certain
demeanor that keeps you calm. That’s a growing
experience for him.
