The world is a very dangerous place. The news shows crime after crime, horrendous acts one right after the other, and it becomes clear that we live in a dangerous society. There are a lot of people who do bad things and a lot of them end up in jails, making prisons some of the scariest places in the world.

Jails are made to be a home to criminals and some are designed to house the most violent individuals in the world. These violent criminals pose the biggest threat to society and while some prisons are filled with violence, others are filled with filth and disease.

Regardless, the following ten prisons are the worst and scariest in the world. These jails are known for holding the world’s most violent prisoners and these locations are where countless deaths have taken place. Most of the prisons, which are about to be explored, are known worldwide for their violence and history. These prisons all possess cruel and inhumane living conditions, which are often created by the prison staff.
