    Default conjugal visits area in la victoria prison

    i've heard the prisoners were allowed conjugal visits. i have never seen a dominican prison so i had no idea what to expect.
    today in the papers there's news about a prisoner who killed his girlfriend with a homemade knife during a conjugal visit and then hanged himself: Recluso y mujer son hallados muertos en La Victoria - DiarioLibre.com

    detras de rumor, of course, has crime scene picture (caution, strong images): Recluso de la Victoria asesina pareja que lo fue a visitar y luego se ahorca (IMAGEN MUY FUERTE EN CONTENIDO)

    depressing place and depressing news. la victoria is the best known and the biggest prison in the country.

    here is a video about la victoria, encarcelados (in spanish):

    Saw this video a while back. It really gives you an inside look into how it is to be in jail in this country.

    Didn't something like that happen in an Higuey prison a couple of years ago when a fire killed many. They've since built a state-of-the-art "joint" in Anamuya to replace it.

    2005, i think. 134 deaths. it's low, considering the environment.

    3 hots and a cot? You must be kidding!! That's only if you have money!!
    If you don't have money and your family doesn't help you, you're up $hitcreek.
    It's not worth the stretch here, believe me

    i think the prisons looked quite hellish. on a positive side, as soon as you place your foot outside the walls you look 100% like a civilian and can blend in with the crowd. makes escapes a bit easier.
