With more than 5,000 inmates packed inside eight floors of a downtown skyscraper, Sacramento County Jail is the ultimate urban jungle. NGC takes you behind bars to meet a couple charged with torture and a woman who appears to be getting back on track when her addition to methamphetamines lands her in jail. Amid rumors of an imminent attack against officers, the understaffed wardens prepare for a takedown. But once the suspected prisoner is secured, one question remains: Where is the weapon?
