The Most Dangerous Prisons in America
Idaho Correctional Center: Kuna, Idaho
According to a 2010 lawsuit the violence is condoned and even promoted by prison staff.
Julia Tutwiler Prison: Wetumpka, Alabama
This all-female prison has a history of claims and lawsuits alleging sexual abuse on behalf of the facility’s staff. Many of the prisoners have become pregnant by male guards. Many have reported fear of rejecting sexual advances will lead to solitary confinement or other forms of retaliation.
California State Prison, Corcoran: Kings County, California
Journalist Mark Arax covered the prison in 1996, claiming it was the most dangerous of all state prisons. Officers here had killed more inmates than any other prison with many of the shootings having no proper justification. Some officers would also initiate fights among prisoners.
Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility: Leake County, Mississippi
This youth facility has been reported to have some of the most brutal crimes committed against its young inmates. Assault, rape and psychological abuse are common occurrences and many of the prison staff members have been accused of contributing to violence between inmates.
United States Penitentiary Lewisburg: Lewisburg, Pennsylvania
This overcrowded supermax prison is named in a number of lawsuits including one that claims prison staff intentionally bunk inmates with their known enemies, a practice that has resulted in at least two deaths.
Men’s Central Jail and Twin Towers Correctional Facility: Los Angeles, California
This overcrowded correctional facility houses inmates that are transferred from overcrowded California prisons. According to investigative reports beatings are prevalent with guards often standing by as inmates are assaulted or raped by their peers. Other times guards contribute to the attacks.
Prisons have always been a concentration of violence , however they were made for the opposite reason. There is no secret inmates often suffer from guards , but these prisons are pure evil. If any person ever gets out of the prison, why do people expect them to start a new life after what they experienced there? It is almost unreal. Until we serve violence in prisons we won’t get any “correction”.
