Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Texas jail was an Animal House, authorities say: "MONTAGUE, Texas (AP) - For months, perhaps longer, the Montague County Jail was 'Animal House' meets Mayberry.

Inside the small brick building across from the courthouse, inmates had the run of the place, having sex with their jailer girlfriends, bringing in recliners, taking drugs and chatting on cell phones supplied by friends or guards, according to authorities. They also disabled some of the surveillance cameras and made weapons out of nails.

The doors to two groups of cells didn't lock, but apparently no one tried to escape—perhaps because they had everything they needed inside."
