Cambodia Jail(s)

Postby PorkPiePorn » Tue Mar 21, 2017 5:14 am

What are they like. Have you or a friend ever done time here? Ive heard some anecdotes but never first hand. When I think of it, it scares the piss out of me.

Also, are there any known photo's or repositories of stories and information, if so, please share.

Last Q: Can you visit the jails, have you ever, and whats it like?
The problem with the world is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

I read somewhere a barang was unconscious and seeing as the other prisoners are the caregivers they also took the opportunity to confirm the western = big dik rumor by all taking a look.

There's a Prey Sar fan fiction subreddit?

Trying to find the thread about Cookie who was banged up in Prey Sar and took photos and gave insightful commentary via his phone; think it was a post from Bonez.

Anyway, found this

A list of the various kingdom jails ranked from the best to the worst would be interesting.
I just know SHV prison as an outsider but for some reason I always believed it was probably better than Prey Sor.
Very sober these days...

Well you are talking about going to visit...
I wonder is prison tourism any more acceptable than orphanage tourism?
There may well actually be a high %age of population crossover.

I am not sure your point or your motivation in your reply, however, there are several good reasons to visit a prison. For one, accountability and human rights, and also for humanitarian reasons, thirdly for supporting a friend or acquaintance, and fourthly, as you have indicated, for voyeurism which is not a good reason.

I will not lie, I am curious, however, I have toured a womens prison as part of visitation group I was involved with, as well as I have also visited an inmate at a maximum security prison as a favor to his mother. People in prison most often SHOULD be there, but they are still human beings, and a little compassion can surely alleviate some of their mental suffering. I am almost certain that if you have the right heart and purpose, most inmates would welcome your visit.

I am actually interested in doing something related to prison work, as far as my voluntary contribution to society would be concerned. The idea of being locked in a box, helpless to manage your own affairs and therefore totally dependent upon the care of your captors frightens me on a personal level. If you need access to medication or care and your plea's fall upon deaf ears, its fucked up. I actually do not care who you are or what you have done, it is not right to let a human being suffer, in spite of their loss of freedom ah, but I digress.

No real reason - just messing.
Look into Prison Fellowship. They are a Christian organisation but aren't zealous. They do loads of good stuff regarding education and training. I've donated resources to them in the past.
