VIDEO: Ride from Hell

David Hastings said he was led away from the Orange County Jail medical wing just after midnight on April 5, 2014, wearing nothing more than a white, paper, jail-issue jump suit. His hands and feet were shackled to his waist. In the chilly darkness, he was being extradited from the Men’s Central Jail in Santa Ana to face a judge in Ft. Myers. Hastings said he spent the next 15 days hurtling across more than 8,000 miles, zig-zagging across 31 states and picking up 33 prisoners. During the ride, Hastings would be introduced to the grueling world of inmate transportation, where two-agent teams, driving all day and night, move people in custody across America.
