A Peek Into the Benguet Provincial Jail

I've always wondered what the Benguet Provincial Jail looks like. So it was interesting to see this video pop up on my RSS feeds. It's a YouTube video of a foreign preacher spreading his word in front of Benguet Provincial Jail inmates. I didn't pay attention to what the preacher's saying, I was only interested on what the condition of the prison cells are. The camera didn't pan into the interiors of the cells but they seem cramped and overcrowded. But at least, the cells look much better than the cells I saw a couple of years ago at a police precinct in Cubao, Quezon City. The one I saw in Cubao, several prisoners were kept in a very small enclosure which doesn't even have an electric fan. I can't t imagine the maddening heat.
