Suggested correction: Paul Crewe was arrested by local police and not charged with a Federal crime, therefore he would have been incarcerated in a State Prison, not a Federal Penitentiary.

But the prison is named Allenville Federal Penitentiary so they should be wearing American flag patches and not state patches.

If he was arrested in California by local cops, why would he be incarcerated in a Texas State Prison and not a California State Prison?

Factual error: Crewe was arrested by local police in Los Angeles but was sent to a prison in Texas.

Question: Why did Nate Scarborough need x-rays of the guards injuries?

Answer: Simple: to show the other prisoners/players on the team the guards' weakest points on their bodies to attack them. Previous injuries means an advantage.
