That is horrific. The whole place needs to be razed.

We have our own third-world prison conditions here in the great United States. Similar infestations, but not as outrageous as conditions in Parchman, Mississippi, are also present in some of the older federal penitentiaries. USP Lewisburg and the Atlanta holdover units are two,, specifically the heat, the backed up toilets, and rodent/roach infestations.

I know there's a big hoopla against cell phones in prisons but this is another instance of if these men didn't have these images to reveal the way they live to the world, people would still be spouting that "Do the crime, do the time." foolishness.
