The Professional Criminal
In this program, host Lohman describes the professional criminal, a special type of inmate who is found at all levels of the penal system. The “Professional” is the product of a career in crime. Part of that career often reflects experience in penal institutions. Film clips are used to demonstrate aspects of prison life which can develop such personalities. One such inmate is interviewed and his characteristics are observed. With Wilkinson, Lohman discusses his attitudes toward life, his fellow man and his occupation. Ways in which penologists work to avoid such development are explored.
