Lessons learned
25 January 2020 | by inskyfireSee all my reviews

This is a very good program where people seem to actually learn from their mistakes and in a very extreme way. I like seeing how other prison systems work compaired to ours and this show does a good job portraying that. I also like to see how much time each person gets for what the smuggle, and in the end, they all seem to learn and grow from their experiences. Interestingly enough, if you smuggle from Mexico to America, you get ZERO time, no matter what you smuggle or how much. You are just sent back to repeat. Watch BorderForce USA: the wall, to see that in action. So to see how much time all these people get compaired to all those people getting no time for millions of dollars worth of Meth, Cocaine, and Fentanyl being smuggled over. It is kinda sad. At least these people learn a lesson after.
