Diyarbakır Prison

Diyarbakir Prison in southeastern Turkey was built in 1980. Since then it has imprisoned many of that nation's most violent criminals which is why it is one of the worst in the world. This prison is known for dishing out not just physical torture to it's inmates but mental as well. The are two sections within the facility; the E-Type which has a capacity of 744 prisoners and the D-Type with a 688 capacity however both currently hold more than it should.


La Sabaneta

La Sabeneta is located in Venezuela and is considered one of the world's worst prisons. It is one of the most brutal correctional facilities in South America which is why inmates want to leave as soon as they are sent here. There are many diseases which run rampant inside and there is little to no care given to the inmates. The combination of that and the facility being understaffed causes many violent crimes to occur inside of it.


ADX Florence Supermax Prison

The ADX Florence Supermax Prison is said to house the most dangerous criminals in the United States. Located in Fremont County, Colorado it has a population of just 439 inmates currently but has the tightest security in the country. Many inmates here commit suicide due to the complete isolation from everyone and everything including other inmates as well as guards. The Alcatraz of the Rockies first opened its doors in 1994.


Tadmor Prison

The Tadmor Prison is located in Tadmor which is in the desserts of Syria 200 kilometers from Damascus. The prison originally was meant to be a military detention facility, however during the 1980's they began housing all sorts of criminals inside. In 1980 President Hafez al-Assad order the killing of all prisoners inside which left the death total near 2,400. The prison was shut down in 2001 however its doors opened back up in 2011.


Carandiru Penitentiary

The Carandiru Penitentiary is located in San Paulo, Brazil and first opened in 1920. It did not house its first criminals until 1956 and eventually closed down in 2002. In 1992 there was huge riot/massacre which occurred inside of it where 111 prisoners were killed due to the uprising. Among other major problems within this prison which held up to 8,000 inmates at a time was a huge AIDS epidemic, which is another reason it was destroyed.


Camp 22

Camp 22 in North Korea may just be the worst prison in the entire world. The political prison camp's official name is actually Kwan-li-so No. 22 and is completely isolated from the outside world. Prisoners and even their families in some cases are held in lifelong detention here. There are over 50,00o inmates inside of Camp 22.


Bang Kwang Central Prison

Bang Kwang Central Prison is located in the Nonthaburi Province of Thailand which is about seven miles north of Bangkok. This men's-only correctional facility is considered one of the worst prisons in the Far East. It's over crowded population and understaffed officers makeup much of the reason why it is one of the worst places in the world. This jail houses several foreign prisoners as well as inmates who awaiting to be put to death.

Gitarama Central Prison

The conditions here are so bad that some prisoners resort to eating each others flesh just to stay alive themselves.

It was originally designed to house just 400 prisoners however for whatever reason the population jumped to nearly 7,000 in the 1990's


Rikers Island Prison

The prison literally sits on an island in between the boroughs of Queens and the Bronox and is adjacent to the runways of LaGuardia Airport.

This is another reason why this is one of the world's most dangerous prisons.


San Juan de Lurigancho

Located in Lima, Peru, San Juan de Lurigancho is known by many as the toughest prison in South America. The prison has quite the over-population problem as it was constructed to hold just 2,500 prisoners but houses over 7,000 inmates to date. The environment inside is very lax which means all sorts of crimes occur including selling of drugs, rape and murder. The fact that the guards aren't truly attentive to what is going on makes this one of the world's worst prisons.

La Sante contains just as many if not more pests such as rats and lice then it does inmates. These conditions make it a terrible place to be held captive which is why every year several inmates commit suicide.

There have long been rumors and complaints that sodomy and inmates being beaten to death occurs on a daily basis within these walls. There are also epidemics of malnutrition, cholera, and ulcers which are all part of everyday life here. Many of the inmates here are political prisoners which means that there are no holds barred when it comes to what goes on inside.
