I don't feel the least bit sorry for either Norten or Torres, nor their families. They made their decision and they can live with the prison time that comes with it now.
I just happened upon this tonight and I think I am hooked! They send in random people to live amongst the County Jail population... wow! Holy smokes! Remind me to never apply for work at a correctional facility. I would last about 30 minutes.
