15 Most Brutal Prisons In The World

In this world, none of us wants to go to prison. If we commit a crime such as tax fraud, it might seem like a walk in the park. But when it comes to the crime like murders and rapes, then you might have to go prisons that have a lot more security with rules and less-than-comfortable living conditions. There are some prisons that have enough nice televisions and hearty serving of food. There are also some prisons that are as worst as hell. These prisons are that bad; the prisoners also have to think twice before committing a crime. The prisoners are forced to live in a cage and are even not provided with enough food. The conditions of the prisons are worst, and the treatment given to the prisoners is brutal.
