I'm watching this damn show and it's making me behave like an inmate. I can't be pressing up on people in the real world like this. I'm hovering over my food making sure no one can grab it, sleeping with a shank and stocking up on microwavable soups. I need to quit this show.

In the meantime, I'm wasting a lot of my free time doing research to find out what the prisons are like here in Connecticut.

7 Worst Prisons in the State of Connecticut

If I was going to prison, I'd be worrying about everything. I'd want to know what I was in for and there are not a ton of resources available, I certainly would not have anyone I could ask for their experience. You need to know what danger level you're facing, what your day-to-day will consist of and what conditions are like. Most of all, you want to know if the place you're going to has a bad reputation. 

My recent TV binge of 60 Days In made me want to seek answers to these questions, I needed to know. I was able to find some helpful information from The Connecticut Bail Bonds Group.

Here are the 7 Worst Prisons in Connecticut

If there is a silver lining, it's this Connecticut has only 18 correctional facilities according to the Connecticut State DOC. They add: "five of which are currently closed due to a 20-plus-year low in the offender population."

18 - 5= 13

So These are the seven of the worst prisons out of only thirteen, not eighty or ninety. I guess it's all in how you look at it, which is easy for me to say because I'm not scheduled to live at any of these facilities....yet.

P.S. I'm really dying to get a guest on the Ethan, Lou & Large Dave Show that has firsthand knowledge of what these institutions are like. We've had some folks on the show from Danbury's FCI but they work there, how honest can they be? I have some grimey questions that need answering and I don't want the politically correct, generic answers.
