Miami Mega Jail - Prison From Hell subtitles

You’ve been charged with a serious crime you insist you didn’t commit.You’re innocent until proven guilty of course, but that court date might take a while toarrive.In the meantime your place of residence will be what’s been called the Miami Mega Jail.You’re still young, have never been to jail before and you’re not a tough guy, so whenyou are taken to the floor where you’ll be housed you can’t believe what you see.Rows of cells filled with scores of men, shouting, screaming, coming up to the bars and threateningyou.It’s utter chaos.Waiting for you in your cell is a welcoming committee of 20 angry-looking, dangerous men.You are no match for these guys, but you’re gonna have to fight, make no mistake aboutthat.You’ve just entered an arena of mortal combat.It’s hard to pick which is the worst county jail in the USA because sadly there are multipleplaces which could compete to be the top, or perhaps we should say bottom, of the list.Anyone who’s had a stay at the place we are going to talk about today won’t be offendedwe have chosen it as the worst, that’s for sure.We should say that if you speak to hardened criminals who’ve been in and out of jailand prisons they will often tell you that jail is much worse.Many people say jail is dirtier than prison and much more violent.The place we are talking about today has been called, “Hell in Paradise”, and afterour research we won’t disagree.What we’re actually talking about is called the “Miami-Dade Corrections and RehabilitationDepartment”, which actually consists of several units including a notorious Boot Camp.Those who don’t get through that camp will end up in jail, and some of them are stillin their teens.The Boot Camp is another story altogether, but we will say compared to jail it’s aholiday camp.The entire system houses around 7,000 people, although something like 114,000 folks willpass through the doors each year – that’s about 312 a day.This is a busy place, that’s for sure.Still, it’s only the 7th largest jail system in the United States.Most inmates won’t spend long in there and the average time spent in the entire systemis just 22 days, but you’ll also find people who’ve been waiting trial for as long asfive years.This brings us to one of the main units, the one place that hits the headlines the mostfor its brutal conditions.It is called the Pre-Trial Detention Center, or is sometimes referred to as the Main Jail.It usually houses around 1,700 people at a time.Most of the people there are still technically innocent since they haven’t been provenguilty, but waiting for that court date might take years.It’s not easy to settle when in this kind of limbo, and if you walk past the cells onsome floors you’ll see just how unsettled things are.There are prisoners who have quit even fighting their cases because they just want to getout of there, innocent or not, they just want to get to prison.The worst floors are where the alleged most dangerous offenders are kept and those arefloors five and six.The cells here usually house anywhere from 15 to 25 men and within this group there isa kind of hierarchy.As the guys in there like to say a lot, it’s survival of the fittest, so if you’re nota fighter you might have a hard time.You want a certain bunk, you’ll have to fight for it.Ok, you don’t care about having the worst spot in the cell, but what if someone justtakes your stuff?As one prisoner in there said, “I exploit the weak.”If you don’t fight for your things you’ll have a hell of a time, and we mean that inthe negative.If you snitch, you’ll be beaten wherever you go unless you get put into protection.As another prisoner said in an interview on your first day in his cell you have to fightsimply because they want to check you out as a man.But why?His reply was if you don’t fight it’s a sign that something is wrong with you.Maybe you’re a snitch, because you didn’t want to fight.It sounds unreasonable, but the prisoner said those are the rules, that’s the code.The thing is, the prisoners can never clearly explain the rules of the code.One guy did explain that if a person doesn’t fight one-on-one then in adherence to thecode the whole cell might beat that person.Sometimes a guy might be beaten for the smallest infraction, and sometimes he might have beenaccused of something he didn’t actually do.“Who stole my food?”No one replies, and the weakest takes the beating.You’re powerless, you take the blame.He had to do it, because he’d lose face if he didn’t.As everyone says in there, you just have to fight back.They have a lot of unwritten principles they embrace, and one is called GABOS.That means, “Game Ain't Based on Sympathy”.Unlike some federal prisons, it’s unlikely you’ll be taken under anyone’s wing.Jail is way more gladiatorial than prison, even though we hear less about the brutalityof jail systems.Just go onto forums where former prisoners talk about their experience in the correctionssystem and you’ll find many of them saying jail was way worse.The irony of course is that most people haven’t even been found guilty yet and they are treatedworse and face more threats.First timers are absolutely terrified and in many cases they should be; the mentallyunwell get loaded in there; the food is terrible; the cells are filthy and they’ll spend mostof their time in that cell.You’ll find many prisoners saying they’ll do a “bullet” just to get out of thathellhole.A bullet is a year in prison.Why would jails be home to worse conditions, you might be wondering.Well, they’re not really meant to keep a person too long.The problem is, even a short stint can be hellish and some folks do much more than ashort stay if their trial is delayed.Prison is supposed to offer some kind of comfort…Prison is hell with benefits, jail is feeling constant pain in purgatory and the worst partis you don’t know the way out.Because of that, inmates are often mean, and angry, and frustrated, and sometimes justplain crazy after coming off an 18-month-long crank-athon.All that said, imagine being sent to the worst of these places?Let’s get back to you being taken up to the 6th floor in Miami.Once in a cell the guard walks off, and those guards have admitted that they can’t respondto violence fast enough to stop it.They admit they leave the inmates to their codes.Those guards openly say that there’s nothing they can do about the severe beatings, thestabbings, the theft.There just aren’t enough of them to be everywhere and see everything.Once that guard walks away, you are left to battle it out on the 5th and 6th floors ofthis ugly, old brown building.But why?Why can’t they just get along?One prisoner answered that, saying, “The code is the code.”What does that mean?It means if you are seen to have disrespected someone you fight, you strap up.You don’t reason with a person because this is not a reasonable place to begin with.People not from the streets, they say, don’t understand the code of the streets.This kind of wild west attitude goes back to what scientists have called a, “cultureof honor.”You dishonor a guy, you fight, you draw swords, you take ten paces and shoot.In the outside world we have evolved out of this for the most part, but inside prisonthis code, this culture of honor, still pervades.On top of theft and fighting the Main Jail in Miami has been called one of the worstin America for other kinds of male-on-male abuse.Terrible things can happen when guards only patrol the cells once an hour.Weaker inmates are just left like prey among apex predators.Thankfully, the jail has made a lot of improvements in the last few years, one being a lot morecameras have been installed.Then there’s the issue of this jail housing many people who are taking psychiatric drugs.Inmate fights often break out when a mentally ill person is acting in a way that other inmatesdon’t like.As the Marshall Project reported, “Miami’s jail system is the largest institution formentally ill people in Florida.”Mentally ill people often become the prey, and end up on the floor with 20 men takingturns to pummel them.This is how withdrawal is treated.On any given day men walk in and out of the infirmary.It’s like a revolving door splattered with blood.In fact, there has been so much violence that the Department of Justice said the Miami-Dadejail system was way out of control and prisoners as well as guards faced too many dangers.Something had to be done, said the department.A few years back the jail faced a lot of scrutiny after eight people died in just five months.The DoJ said the three deaths of mentally unwell people was particularly disturbing.One guy who was in for driving while suspended went in on a Saturday and was dead the nextMonday.Two more died within a week, with a commissioner saying the system is, “extremely broken.”It turned out that from the eight that died one had jumped off a landing to escape prisonersthat were coming after him to beat him.Knives were also mentioned.The worst floor, that has since closed down, was sometimes called the “Forgotten Floor.”It was the ninth level where most of the mentally ill people were kept.This was where prisoners were often left and neglected, and in too many cases took theirown lives.Back in the day on this level prisoners slept on the floor without blankets, although asa psychiatric facility it was supposed to be humane.Some prisoners were found to be drinking from toilets, and when this hit the news the placewas called, “horrific”.There was a public outcry.But as you’ve heard, there are still problems when someone with mental issues gets lockedup with modern day street gladiators and bullies whose code willfully lacks humane values.Not all the floors are as bad as the stories we have talked about, and in some cases particularlydangerous or vulnerable people will be housed alone.Nonetheless, end up on one of those high floors in the main jail and you will certainly seewhat it’s like to be confined in one of the toughest jails in the world.There are other problems, too, of a more unusual ilk.In 2019, 17 people were rushed to hospital from this place due to some sudden illness.Several staff came down with it, too.What happened?No one really knew.The bomb squad was even called in after a strange liquid was found, but that turnedout to be harmless.The most likely reason people just started keeling over was smoke fumes from some toxicdrug.If inhaling smoke fumes from a distance can bring a person down with a vicious nausea,what on Earth could they have been smoking in there?Nerve gas?It just shows how crazy that place is.We’ll leave you with a review we found on a Facebook page dedicated to this jail:“Welcome to hell.A person would be better off dead rather than enduring the abuse and torment of being incarceratedin this filthy, disgusting sewer.”You don’t want to get sent to Miami Jail but you do want to click on one of these twovideos.So go watch this video now for

<text sub="clublinks" start="417.38" dur="1.39">turns to pummel them.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="418.77" dur="2.23">This is how withdrawal is treated.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="421" dur="2.58">On any given day men walk in and out of the infirmary.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="423.58" dur="2.25">It’s like a revolving door splattered with blood.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="425.83" dur="4.18">In fact, there has been so much violence that the Department of Justice said the Miami-Dade</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="430.01" dur="5.409">jail system was way out of control and prisoners as well as guards faced too many dangers.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="435.419" dur="1.84">Something had to be done, said the department.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="437.259" dur="4.771">A few years back the jail faced a lot of scrutiny after eight people died in just five months.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="442.03" dur="5.1">The DoJ said the three deaths of mentally unwell people was particularly disturbing.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="447.13" dur="4.39">One guy who was in for driving while suspended went in on a Saturday and was dead the next</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="451.52" dur="1">Monday.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="452.52" dur="3.869">Two more died within a week, with a commissioner saying the system is, “extremely broken.”</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="456.389" dur="4.601">It turned out that from the eight that died one had jumped off a landing to escape prisoners</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="460.99" dur="1.76">that were coming after him to beat him.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="462.75" dur="1.62">Knives were also mentioned.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="464.37" dur="4.04">The worst floor, that has since closed down, was sometimes called the “Forgotten Floor.”</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="468.41" dur="3.979">It was the ninth level where most of the mentally ill people were kept.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="472.389" dur="3.861">This was where prisoners were often left and neglected, and in too many cases took their</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="476.25" dur="1.55">own lives.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="477.8" dur="3.92">Back in the day on this level prisoners slept on the floor without blankets, although as</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="481.72" dur="2.91">a psychiatric facility it was supposed to be humane.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="484.63" dur="3.759">Some prisoners were found to be drinking from toilets, and when this hit the news the place</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="488.389" dur="1.24">was called, “horrific”.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="489.629" dur="1.401">There was a public outcry.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="491.03" dur="3.65">But as you’ve heard, there are still problems when someone with mental issues gets locked</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="494.68" dur="5.84">up with modern day street gladiators and bullies whose code willfully lacks humane values.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="500.52" dur="4.84">Not all the floors are as bad as the stories we have talked about, and in some cases particularly</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="505.36" dur="2.81">dangerous or vulnerable people will be housed alone.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="508.17" dur="4.24">Nonetheless, end up on one of those high floors in the main jail and you will certainly see</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="512.41" dur="4.66">what it’s like to be confined in one of the toughest jails in the world.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="517.07" dur="3.82">There are other problems, too, of a more unusual ilk.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="520.89" dur="5.35">In 2019, 17 people were rushed to hospital from this place due to some sudden illness.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="526.24" dur="1.76">Several staff came down with it, too.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="528" dur="1">What happened?</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="529" dur="1.35">No one really knew.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="530.35" dur="3.66">The bomb squad was even called in after a strange liquid was found, but that turned</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="534.01" dur="1.09">out to be harmless.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="535.1" dur="4.23">The most likely reason people just started keeling over was smoke fumes from some toxic</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="539.33" dur="1">drug.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="540.33" dur="3.75">If inhaling smoke fumes from a distance can bring a person down with a vicious nausea,</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="544.08" dur="2.24">what on Earth could they have been smoking in there?</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="546.32" dur="1">Nerve gas?</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="547.32" dur="2.36">It just shows how crazy that place is.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="549.68" dur="4.37">We’ll leave you with a review we found on a Facebook page dedicated to this jail:</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="554.05" dur="1.12">“Welcome to hell.</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="555.17" dur="4.77">A person would be better off dead rather than enduring the abuse and torment of being incarcerated</text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="559.94" dur="3.05">in this filthy, disgusting sewer.”</text>
