10693 ratings | 1453925 views
Sir Trevor McDonald meets more inmates inside two of Indiana's most dangerous women's prisons. Among them are Dawn Hopkins, who was sentenced to life for murdering her three-month-old son, and Sarah `Cindy' White, who was incarcerated as a teenager and will spend the rest of her life behind bars. The veteran broadcaster also hears the remarkable story of Linda Darby who, after escaping from jail in 1972, spent the next 35 years on the run - before the law finally caught up with her.

That baby killer should be sentenced to death instead of being released 🙄. Once she let out, she will do it again.

It's crazy how the child murder got 15 yrs, and Sara from the last episode, got 100 yrs, for purchasing a gun for her ex, that ended up killing 2 people. I bet she didn't take a plea, and took her chances going to trial. I would of just took a plea. I coulden't imagine how hard that would be. It makes me realize how blessed I am, after watching these shows.

A riveting documentary. Sad, remorseful, a hard truth about the human condition. It's easy to shun people after a judge and jury have, easy to forget there were lives before the dreadful moment. Ty for this!

It’s a shame that the baby killer didn’t succeed when she tried to kill herself! The justice system makes me sick anymore! How are you going to let a killer back into society?!

Sir Trevor McDonald has always been such a gent, and fantastic journalist. I can see why he was knighted.

I remember the story of the lady who set fire to the couples home. It was really sad. I watched her documentary and she was a troubled young girl trying to excape her circumstances and did a desperate thing that ended really badly.

So a woman had her kids taken away then murdered her baby only is getting out after 16 years and yet a woman who was only 16 that was trying to escape an abusive family set a fire and tried to get everyone out gets life? That makes no sense. At 16 I know I didn't always make good choices heck I was still making mistakes at 25. I don't feel bad for them but I think it's wrong to let out one who has a history of abuse and keep one who made a mistake as a child. Yes child as your not classed as an adult till 18. Something has got to change especially when a grown as woman kills her baby and gets to walk out that door.

If she had done it just a few months before it would have been legal. the same deed a few months later is the worst. How can abortion be legal? it is the worst lie of all that society has convinced women to kill there own babies, so they don´t have to deal with over population.

Pablo Atenas (13 days ago)
Abortion. Women do that free will. So yes, woman do it and legally, hurt and kill there babies. So sad, so true.

I know from personal experience that segregation is literal, actual torture. Though I have not been to prison, I was once punished for opening up about suicidal thoughts at a psych hospital. This 48 hour punishment (which, of course, was not described as punishment) consisted of: No access to the outdoors (I would not have been able to run away so this universal rule is bs), confinement to only 1 part of the "ward", not being allowed to interact with other patients, not being allowed to interact with the staff unless it was deemed 100% necessary, not being allowed to attend THERAPY groups (which, of course, are considered the most effective type of therapy in that kind of psych hospital), having to wear truly boiling hot paper scrubs, access to only 1 book, and access to only 1 hour of TV. These 48 hours have left me with permanent scars. I shudder to think of having even MORE restrictions for an even LONGER amount of time. Solitary confinement should be illegal in any place that might use it (prison and psychiatric hospitals being examples).

A child is dead because of her action. A life for a life. No exceptions. Eye for an eye - if this was the way of life would be wasting tax payers dollars to house criminals.

I've seen full-length documentaries on 3 of these women and their crimes. It was really interesting to hear what they had to say after all this time, see where they are held in custody, what's currently in their minds. Thanks for posting!

And another thing the girl who killed her kid she’s smiling when she’s telling her story. And she didn’t just snap, her two older kids were abused by her and taken away. Then she abused her 3 month old and killed him! She doesn’t deserve to get out. She doesn’t seem remorseful at all. She’s smiling through the entire story!

I watched my first prison documentary with Trevor on the men’s prison, and at first I thought he was a little awkward. But the more I watch him, the more I think he is the most respectful interviewer I have ever seen. He never talks over anyone. He waits for them to finish. He’s respectful. His voice could read a phone book and I’d listen intently. This guy is awesome. He needs to teach the interviewers we do have a few lessons on actually listening to people. And the fact that he doesn’t judge. I like that. He talks to them like normal people.

bad documentary. let's have the victims' points of view. who trusts criminals and what they say? they are liars murderers thieves. corporal and capital punishment is absolutely needed to foster deterrence. Where's  sorrow for the victims?
Hajar Renate Midbrød (19 days ago)
That 22 year old who has a 7 year old daughter WTF ??? so she got pregnant at basically 14 .-(((( The more I watch of these documentaries the harder it becomes to actually view these creatures as Human ..... needing a police escort when walking your child because prisoners might sexually abuse or otherwise harm the child is just ... mind blowing .. these are not humans any more , but then again its hard to refer to them as animals as I actually see that as an insult to animals .... there is no soul in these criminals .. the lights are on but no one is home .... And the woman who killed her son .... "remorse for taking somebody`s Life " LADY THAT WAS YOUR OWN SON !!!! you killed your son .. not somebody FROM YOUR BODY !!!! seriously hope she does not get released , it says a lot when she does not acknowledge that the life she took was her own child and she just calls it a somebody ....and she has a PHILOSOPHY DEGREE ????? !!!!!!
Hajar Renate Midbrød (19 days ago)
I have never heard such a blatant disregard for the crime committed than that woman describing shooting someone in the face as " the bullet came in close contact with the eye " I mean WTF .... the bullet blew out his eye !!!! jeeez she has ZERO remorse or understanding of what she has done at all .... and the other one " ooops mommy made a big mistake " honey you made a series of huge freakin mistakes and as a consequence probably ruined your child ....

Loe Siff (21 days ago)
Online it says Cindy was 18 when she committed her crimes. Does she say 16 to sound more innocent and young? Also it says they found love letters between her and the man she killed along with pornograpic photos of Cindy. And her real name is Sarah Isabelle White.
Loe Siff (21 days ago)
Also she was the family’s babysitter but claimed they were her guardians. I feel like she twisted this story in her favor in more ways than one.

T.M. Will (23 days ago)
I roll my eyes at post partum depression. The only ones I have sympathy for are the kids who are stuck with those mothers. When you make the choice to have a child, life is not about you anymore. Deal with it or don't have them.

The woman who was in since 16: Does this sound wrong to anyone else? Her intent was not to kill. Also, back then victims were not really helped; they were looked upon as guilty regardless. Why hasn't another lawyer/s reopen this & get this woman back home where she belongs?

In Scandinavia, prisons are mostly about rebuilding people into actually becoming something better than they were before they got caught. In the United States, prisons are all about destroying and bringing out the worst from everyone. Even the most innocent man or woman would be a criminal after living a year in an American prison.
