A chain gang is a group of prisoners chained together to perform menial or physically challenging work as a form of punishment. Such punishment might include repairing buildings, building roads, or clearing land. This system existed primarily in the Southern United States, and by 1955 had been phased out nationwide, with Georgia the last state to abandon the practice.Chain gangs were reintroduced by a few states during the "get tough on crime" 1990s, with Alabama being the first state to revive them in 1995. The experiment ended after about one year in all states except Arizona, where in Maricopa County inmates can still volunteer for a chain gang to earn credit toward a high school diploma or avoid disciplinary lockdowns for rule infractions.The introduction of chain gangs into the United

  • Als Chain Gang bezeichnet man Gruppen von Gefangenen, die als besondere Form von Bestrafung, gelegentlich aber auch als besondere Chance der Wiedereingliederung, aneinandergekettet körperliche Arbeiten ausführen müssen. Typisch sind Einsätze außerhalb von Gefängnissen im Straßenbau und der Abfallbeseitigung, die traditionell auch abschreckende Wirkung für die Öffentlichkeit in Bezug auf Straftaten haben sollten. Die Chain-Gang-Methode stammt aus der Sklaverei und wird von Aimé Césaire in seinem antikolonialistischen Werk Cahier d'un retour au pays natal angeprangert.
