Have you ever seen a prison in real life? Not all of us have seen it in real life. We do see it in movies and in every movie, it looks different. The way prisoners are kept and the number of available security forces to guard them are shown differently in each country. If you haven’t seen it in real life, you should be looking forward to these pictures of prisons from around the world. From a small room to a luxury cell, we have got everything covered.
