Trending News: The Rock’s New Show About A Hardcore Prison Looks Super Shocking

Quick Take

The Rock’s toughness is pretty much unparalleled. Just look at the guy.

But I feel like we’re about to meet some more extremely tough guys.

The Rock’s newest project (it’s seriously hard to keep track of him these days), is a documentary-style series that takes viewers into one of the most extreme correctional facilities in the country. The Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Boot Camp Program is for juveniles tried as adults and — as the name suggests — runs like a military boot camp.

The camp is controversial in that it punishes prisoners pretty harshly. However, it boasts a recidivism rate in the teens, while the rest of the country is above 75%.

Watch as The Rock explains the show and reveals its first clip:

 


I honestly don’t know what to think. On the one hand, I don’t feel like any human deserves to be treated like that. On the other, the program’s incredibly low recidivism rate suggests that what they’re doing is working.

I dunno, feels off to me, but I’d have to look into it more… Damn, I think I’ve just been hooked.

Drop This Fact

The Rock is trying to set the world record for longest golf drive. See word: ‘trying.’
