Description: Military solutions to the problems of crime, including the use of Air Force jets to stop drug smuggling, have been in vogue lately. Although experimental, New York and several other states have established "shock incarceration" or boot camp facilities to rehabilitate felons convicted of drug-related crimes. The Eleventh Hour visits the Monterrey Shock Incarceration Facility in upstate New York and talks with inmates and officials about the viability of the program. In the studio, host Robert Lipsyte speaks with Mayor Ed Koch and Frank Hall, former chief of the New York City Police Department's Narcotics Division, who supports the boot camps; and Jerome Miller of the National Center for Alternatives to Incarceration, who opposes them.
