Prison Employs Inmates As Guards
A short-staffed prison in Mexico has hired 42 of its most fearsome inmates to act as guards.
The convicts-turned-wardens will each be paid between £20 and £100 a month.
They will help the real guards keep control in the overcrowded prison at Tepic.
According to Mexican newspaper Reforma, the prisoners chosen were those who instilled the most fear in their fellow inmates.
