Los Angeles County's Men's Central Jail is the largest jail in the country. The American Civil Liberties Union closely monitors the facility and says it should be closed because of overcrowding, violence and a dress code that singles out homosexual inmates. In this "Behind Closed Doors" segment, host Michel Martin discusses the harsh life in the Men's Central Jail with ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero.
