Q: It seems that there is a very narrow selection of images in VS. Why

A: Do you know?

These are the YouTube launched Dancing Inmates who shifted from drugs, gangs and violence inside the facility and chose to just dance their time away, altogether.

Looking from above you lose track to the fact that each person in this jail has their own story to tell. It becomes easy to typecast them as one because of their sheer numbers, but if you look at this image long enough, you get to see individuals, friends, brothers, fathers, and sons, who deserve to be treated humanely and justly.

Not discounting the tremendous reforms inside the facility and into the lives of these inmates, they remain to be or have been offenders to society, and sometimes sorry just isn’t enough... So here behind these gates they will live out their sentences, here behind bars they will be paying their debt to society, for the sins they had once committed.
