Russia's Black Dolphin Prison

    I got home last evening and found a program on NatGeo, called Inside Russia's Toughest Prisons. The first segment was about the Black Dolphin prison. As I watched this program, I was surprised to see there are still countries who feel prison is intended to be punishment.

    The documentary said no one has ever escaped the prison and only one prison has ever won an appeal. The cells are within another cell and the two cells are closed from the hallway by a steel door. There is no dining hall, meals are served in the cells. The meals are placed on a tray with a long handle, so they can be passed through a slot in the steel door, without it ever being opened. The prisoners are awakened at 6:00 AM and they are not allowed to even sit on their beds, until 10:00 PM. If they are moved within their own cellblock, they are handcuffed with their hands behind their backs. They are then forced to bend at the waist, so guards can loop their arms through the prisoner's, forcing them to remain bent over. Once they are in the hallway, more guards and a guard dog escort them. If they have to be moved to another building, they are blindfolded, so they cannot see the layout of the prison facilities.

    Astounding to imagine real prisons still exist,

    To quote a fellow Scot:

    Man's inhumanity to man
    Makes countless thousands mourn!

    Quite put me off my breakfast.
