To live or to die.
To fight back or to run for freedom.
The man that attempts escape is the man that has given up on life.
Just about every man that ever tried to escape from Alcatraz was shot down.
America’s deadliest gangsters face the cold hard steel, mental torture, and even dungeons of America’s most notorious maximum security prison.
On Alcatraz that was your first priority staying alive.
To make it through here, they will need cunning, courage, some tricks of the trade.
Flush your toilet and then you scoop all the excess water out so that you have got a clear line.
He does the same thing upstairs, you have it is like a telephone.
From inside the Rock, former inmates reveal their incredible stories of surviving Alcatraz.
Alcatraz, the county’s first super max prison, its residents the nation’s worst convicts.
…a mix of notorious gangsters and criminals, including Al Capone……Machine Gun Kelly, and Robert Stroud……the Bird Man.
Some will survive…using their brains or their brawn.
Some will fight back, unwilling to give in.
Others will break under the strain and some will make a desperate run for freedom, maddening options that determine life, death, and survival on the Rock.
Alcatraz had the reputation of being a very tough place to be.
Just four hours after one of the most daring breaks in the history of Allan County Jail…
1933, America is in crisis.
The Great Depression and Prohibition unleash a massive crime wave.
Criminal syndicates rule the big cities and gangsters and hoodlums are robbing banks across the country.
Meanwhile, in federal prisons like Leavenworth, Atlanta, and McNeil Island, hardened criminals bribed guards, start riots and attempt to escape.
Alcatraz was born out of the dirty 30s.
There were a number of big breakouts in, in Leavenworth and Atlanta and some of the state prisons and then at the same time there was a rash of kidnappings for ransom, so that is at the point at which the government decided that it needed a super max pen.
We should all be concerned with one goal, the eradication of crime.
FBI Chief, J. Edgar Hoover, petitions for a super max prison.
In 1934 the Justice Department takes control of Alcatraz Island, formerly a military prison sitting just over a mile from the city of San Francisco.
The goal, create a high profile facility for the worst of the worst, the toughest of the tough.
The purpose of Alcatraz was actually to, to completely isolate some of America’s worst.

惡魔島是美國第一座最高防禦的監獄，裡面監禁的是美國十惡不赦的囚犯，其中混雜著聲名狼藉的幫派份子和罪犯如： 監獄常客Al Capone，機關槍 Kelly和阿爾卡翠斯鳥人Robert Stroud。
惡魔島是以令人難以生存而聞名的監獄。1933年，在艾倫縣監獄(Allan County Jail)史上最大膽的越獄行動四小時後，美國陷入危機。經濟蕭條和禁酒令引發犯罪率短期的大量激增，犯罪集團統治了大城市，幫派份子和流氓搶遍了美國各地銀行。
同時，聯邦監獄如：沃思監獄(Leavenworth) ，亞特蘭大監獄( Atlanta)和麥克尼爾島監獄(McNeil Island)裡強悍的罪犯賄賂守衛，帶頭暴動及企圖逃獄。
聯邦調查局局長埃德加胡佛(FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover) 請求建立一所最高防預戒備的監獄。
