Zoot Suit- Central Jail

Located at First and Hill Street, Central Jail is where is where the gang is taken after "The Mass Arrests" scene. This is where Henry is first accused of the Sleepy Lagoon murder.

Valdez repeats the number arrested, 300, to show the unfairness of the arrests that occur in this scene. It shows how the Pachucos were targeted simply by looks and arrested on suspicion alone.
