A great example of community policing, or a terrible idea?
Jail can be a frightening place, but in one Los Angeles County lockup, it won't be the inmates who scare you.
When the cell doors close at the Norwalk Sheriff's Department's "Haunted Jail" this Halloween, visitors will see monsters, not mobsters, witches, not snitches, and fake ax murderers instead of real ones.
"It's going to be dark, very dark," Deputy Frank Barragan told The Huffington Post.
Barragan and the other deputies will send the inmates to another facility, fill the jail with ghosts, vampires and goblins, and open it up to neighborhood kids and their parents. On-and-off for the past 16 years, the department has organized the Halloween event.
