lynnel Hampton-Bott, Your Black World

Have inmates gone too far by insinuating rape as a strategy for dissuading wayward teenagers from a life of crime?  On the season 2 premier of “Beyond Scared Straight”  Catoe, a prisoner awaiting trial for assault with a deadly weapon, tells a 15-year-old boy  named Alexis that He’s going to wear a dress in preparation for their upcoming nuptials and that fellow teen, Christopher, dubbed Christine by Catoe, applies his lipstick.
