How bad is Mountjoy?

I have a nephew the same age as me locked up in Canada for some forgery. It definitely "sucks" but for him he says the fears were overexaggerated. So long as you respected the inmates, didn't get involved in any gang things, and didn't say stupid sh*t, you would be "okay" (not get assaulted). Prison rape is also not as common.

But it seems like anglophone first world nations (particularly us, uk and ireland) have the worst prisons. Obviously prison isn't good anywhere you go but I can imagine that the prison brevik is in might be more comfortable than Arbour Hill or Mountjoy.

Is it true inmates care only about "crimes against the weak" (women, children, elderly involving sex crimes or murder). Also true that few people with college degrees are in there or just bs?

Wonder how many in AH would choose solitary or general if you went to the joy.

It’s like secondary school really. Just a bit more unpredictable.

It's not as bad as it's made out to be.
My exs brother done 9years he said life was easy they can rent PlayStations watch tv all night load of junk food good dinners.
Just once you keep urself to urself you'd be grand in saying that I still wouldn't like to go there.
He also said over the years it gradually got better.
I personally think they should hard labour and not treated so well cause majority that go there are scumbags including my exs bro

Doesn’t Breivik have access to internet porn. If I have to be locked up, I want it to be in Norway.

Depends on the prison itself, Mountjoy is probably the worst in ireland. US are one of the worst in western world imo, Californian prisons are the worst for white inmates, East Coast not as bad. South American prisons are way worse though, don't even get a bed in most just a rat infested floor.

Unfortunately those in prison aren't inclined to be so careful and live by common sense rules, which is why they ended up in prison in the first place.

I’m too pretty for prison. So be fore o went in o made sure to fück up my face. Then in there I went up to the largest guy I could find and sucker punched him. Then hammered his head with a food tray. No one fücked with me after that.

I was there for a couple of months in my early twenties.

One of our regular posters either works there or lives there .
Probably works there.

He'll be along shortly .
