Can't find the source, but there was a Sheriff who re-instituted chain gangs...
He would only let them out to work if the 'make-up' was a minimum of two whites for every three blacks.
If the numbers didnt add up, he kept them inside.
In a word, he was covering his arse 'politically'

Joe Arpaio uses chain gangs in Maricopa County, AZ. They are strictly for trustees, not really as punishment.
