In order to describe something as being bad, there needs to be conditions/things that make it unpleasing. When it comes to prisons, bad means that the prisons are violent, that they’re dangerous and that they’re brutal. The living conditions are deplorable, the guards don’t do a good job and it basically isn’t conducive to human growth and habitation.
In the case of the prisons on this list, they all fit at least one of the bad conditions that were described earlier; some fit all. In fact, they are the worst of the worst! Let’s take at a look at some the most horrible prisons in the world.
Disclaimer: Only prisons currently in operation made the cut. Alcatraz would have made the list otherwise.
