Just a cursory check on the Net will show that it is even worse than said. This is a GLOBAL ISSUE that will not be going away anytime soon – “for-profit prisons” is another problem both here at home and abroad. IMO the worse in US is Louisiana State Prison – known as Angola – that has a 100+ year of murder, corruption, underfunding, neglect and pure anarchist chaos when it comes to prisons US in general. https://www.google.com/search?q=famous+louisiana+prison+angola&rlz=1CASUUV_enUY846&oq=famous+louisiana+prison+angola&aqs=chrome..69i57.13997j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
The whole Prison concept is DOA – pun intended – and needs to be eliminated as it CANNOT be reformed or fixed!! Following are some of the other notorious prisons around the world that have – as they ALL DO – the same problems. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_prison

Lawmakers Refused to Increase an Infamous Prison’s Funding. Then, Chaos Erupted.
Understaffed and underfunded, Mississippi’s Parchman prison recently received media attention for its grisly violence, gang control and subhuman living conditions. However, lawmakers have known about these issues for years and have done nothing to fix them.
