What It Was Like To Be An Inmate At Alcatraz

čas přidán 24. 11. 2019
The federal penitentiary on Alcatraz Island, located off the coast of San Francisco, CA, opened in 1934. Until it closed nearly three decades later, Alcatraz was reserved for some of the most ruthless criminals. Life at Alcatraz was not just about confinement and punishment but discipline and routine. Not everything about Alcatraz was considered undesirable; in fact, some convicts even requested doing time at "The Rock."

  • The federal Bureau of Prisons took over an existing military prison from the Army. Alcatraz was for the most disruptive and difficult to control federal inmates. Al Capone was sent there to keep him from controlling the prisons he had been in. The staff was selected to be incorruptible. Cost per inmate was the most expensive of all federal prisons. Alcatraz was abandoned when a new super max prison was opened and all the Alcatraz inmates were moved

  • i’ve been to alcatraz, and honestly, i think the cafeteria was the most creepiest. i wanted to visit the hospital but we weren’t allowed.

  • I read it as Azkaban and got hyped lmao

  • I was locked up there in 1949. This brings back memories. Sad memories

  • Talk about Ellis island in New York City. It's an island work at just about every immigrant from 1892 to 1954. Had to go through.

  • Alcatraz was haunted on top of other things.

  • Wow good video

  • Nowdays, Prisoners Can read Universal examen In the Jail

  • If I could, I would reopen this prison

  • Alcatraz: You cannot escape *El Chapo: Hold my tunnel*

  • The food is better than the crap that most hospitals serve these days.

  • They should fix it up and use it again for a prison

  • 6:38 he said for dinner and then he said for supper???

  • Clint Eastwood successfully escaped 😂

  • We truly take reading for granted

  • Alcatraz prison should be destroyed and rebuilt as a SEAL habitat/interaction and watching tour. Covered sidewalks, Seal feeding, and Selfie w/ seals areas. Redesign and add 100 more feet of shoreline around island for max seal habitat with elevated platform overhang for fish feeding and selfies. Install 40ft tall masonry seal statue at the highest point.

  • Reopen Alcatraz and send the pedophiles there

  • It’s the eeriest place I’ve ever been, and I’ve been to the most active places in 7 or 8 states

  • Breaded Rock Cod w/sliced lemon?!

  • I just see prison as a safe haven for dudes that need to belong. Lost souls.... I'm all for helping your common criminal, as they just need support. Kill all pedos.. No room for them in life.... Kinda simple.

  • They got 3 meals a day? I’m lucky if I get 2 because I’m a poor warehouse worker.

  • How the hell would you know. Did u serve there

  • Was able to smoke, had a library, good food, was able to have real work, 90 minute visits. These are way better conditions than I have excpierenced in any county jail

  • A video about Daniel boon or facet crocket

  • One inmate per cell, common sense🐽

  • 5:15 random german magazines

  • I have a fascination with the prison system, I want to go to Alcatraz and shawshank

  • Chicken nuggets

  • Did you murder someone? Thats ok- go to jail and get free medical care, library access and apple pie! Sounds about fair 😬

  • I have a piece of the rock from horseshoe pit.

  • 12:39 The picture of the screaming person looks a lot like Skin. Skin, from the British rock band Skunk Anansie. Don't know what's legal, just trying to be helpful. Worth looking into.

  • At least their actually taken care of at the medical section, unlike School where they just give you ice

  • not going to lie, it was pretty funny hearing the spooky music play over the narration about the recreational activities, especially when the narrator was talking about Al Capone and the band.

  • You shouldn't make videos about what doing time is like. Because I'm willing to bet you have no time done what so ever. Everything your saying is hearsay. Try finding someone who's actually done time there

  • Anglin brothers went down to Argentina

  • You would think with all these prison stories . No one would want to go there. Stay out of trouble in other words. They should have separate cells.

  • Let’s just say it’s a nice place to visit but I wouldn’t wanna live there

  • I've been on the tour. 100% worth it if you're in the area. Has audio of actual inmates from the prison. Also, anime lovers who like Alcatraz will like Namba Prison in Nanbaka.

  • Wow I sure am glad I wasn't prisoner living there. So it was prison for males only. Was there any female workers with kids living in the island ? I could swear I watch a video about the children living in the island. Anyways this was quite interesting. Thanks 👍

  • How he said Mykonos hurt me

  • No sweat

  • I don't care how much these prisoners suffered at Alcatraz! Most of them were violent murderers like Al Capone! They got what they deserved!

  • Im down with the silent rule. I would enforce that one.

  • 60 bucks? We always went for free

  • dinner at 4:25????? what's y'all problem in the US. dinner is at 8pm. i can accept 7 but at 4 pm you get a snack

  • I’m from malaysia and would love to see any weird history from malaysia you can share >~

  • This video should've been narrated by "Vicky".

  • we should have kept it running for sexual offenders

  • That is my Nickname for the Buggy-eyed Female Congressional Idiot (AOC). AL-Cortez.

  • They should've called their band "The Killers".

  • I have always wondered if they (maybe) tear down the old buildings and make a new modern today prison there on the Island? I just wondered. I am not saying they should or shouldn't.

  • I’ve got a sudden hankering for some beef pot pie!

  • I heard they took hot showers so it would be harder to survive by escaping and swimming in the cold water?

  • The Narrator could be a little more accurate about the events that inspired Escape from Alcatraz. They didn't just disappear from their cells and were never seen again. And they did attempt to swim to shore. I know this video isn't about the escape but it is the most famous thing that happened there.

  • Makes you wonder who the real animals are.

  • Cells were pretty basic, just a bed, a toilet and a sink, that's 2 things more than many prisons had in the UK up until the late 80s early 90s.. Bed, locker, jug of water and a bucket for a toilet. Many of our Victorian built jails simply had no place for plumbing

  • Is that Stephen Colbert narrating? It sure sounds like him.

  • I should have skipped public school and went to this prison. Bettdr food than I got there or will ever get living at my income bracket.

  • One person to a cell? How were you supposed to have sex? You had to have some fun!

  • "Cuz I'd pleasure in guttin you boy!" 😁😁
