Five-Star Prison Cell

Posted in News on Thursday February 8, 2007 by andtheivy

“That’s a jail cell in the F1 section of the Aranjuez prison in Spain, designed to let imprisoned parents to live with their children!

Welcome to a jail Spain says is the only the one in the world with cell units for families: Disney characters on the walls, a nursery, a playground for toddlers. The idea is for kids to bond with their imprisoned parents while young enough to be oblivious to their surroundings, and for inmates seeking rehabilitation to learn parenting skills. The prison in this town 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of Madrid has 36 cell units for families, although now only 16 are occupied, most with Latin Americans. The units of the special F-1 section are known in jail jargon as ‘five-star cells’.”

“A cargo container fell off a ship and spilled its content of thousands of bags of Dorito chips on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Scavengers immediately took advantage of the situation (the chips are fresh thanks to their airtight packaging).” Link
