    America should take some pointers from Russia. Maybe our prison system wouldn`t be as much of a drating joke. Also, the cannibal`s story was kinda hilarious.

    Thighs might do better as a roast. If it`s too tough, try it as hamburger.

    O.O Sobering. Although I`m not sure what those prisoners are experiencing is any less extreme than our own supermax prisons.

    Sadly, it`s also the case that we incarcerate a higher percentage of our citizens than Russia--or any other country, for that matter. (US: 730 per 100K, Russia: 522 per 100K. Link)

    I`m sure A`murica`s prisons are even worse...

    But a sobering thought crossed me as I watched this. I don`t really blame the cannibal more than any other murderer... The act of eating the flesh seems like nothing next to killing a human being.

    `America should take some pointers from Russia.`

    You think? Possibly pointers on being insanely badass, but that is for entertainment only. On anything that might be real, you really don`t need pointers from Russia.

    Scandanavia, maybe.

    Which is worse, a system in which inmates have significant social time and some freedom of assosciation but at a cost of prisoner-on-prisoner violence and gang culture, or a lifetime of near paralysis being controlled and monitored every moment. But reasonably safe from prisoner violence.

    Black Dolphin looks as though it would be very difficult to even kill yourself.

    But the costs must be enormous, in the US prisons can be very profitable.

    @LordJim, In my honest opinion, when you murder someone, you don`t deserve rights or freedoms.

    @LazyMe484 When a state pays a certain amount of money per inmate to a private prison and that prison cuts costs so that each prisoner costs less than what the state gives them. This is how a profit is made. This is why also why the prison system is one of the few things that shouldn`t be privatized. It only leads to our too high prisoner rate going even higher.

    It was actually kind of funny hearing the cannibal laugh as he was telling the story about his friends wife making dumplings not knowing it was human meat, telling them it was kangaroo?! Hahaha, WTF?!

    Scary, man. In response to LazyMe`s response, aren`t prisons expensive for the government? I think America spends way more on its prisons than it gets out, money-wise.

    That may be brutal, but I can think of a few Canadian murderers I`d happily send over there if I had the power.

    Well, that was refreshing. At least the Russian government doesn`t provide endless appeals and free sex change operations and kidneys and livers. I can`t believe Russia is more conservative than the pussy ass liberals we have become.

    Not to stick up for the prisoners or anything, since i think this is hilariously appropriate, but why go through all the trouble? Just execute them and get it over with.

    They should make a prison like that here for the worst of the worst. Get the worst apples out of the barrels and toss them in together, just like this `Black Dolphin`.

    Once news of that type of prison gets filtered down, the rest of the prison populations across the country will straighten up, out of fear of going there for the rest of their lives.

    Oh and if we built one, make sure MSNBC goes there and records it on video for the rest of the prison population to see.

    Prison shows on the weekends are the only decent thing MSNBC ever produces anyways.

    In Britain they would have more comforts and perks than a working person on the outside. Probably get weekends out to unwind. Contraband smuggled in and used as currency is common-place and guards turn a blind eye. And, no doubt, European intervention would say the prison is too harsh on these poor lil killers.
