life behind bars
Indonesia's prisons are having a real problem keeping inmates behind bars this month.

The discovery of a few full-equipped prison cells is only the latest in a long list of corrupt officials getting priority treatment in jail.
There are way too many people locked up for petty crimes.
Just out of prison, Tū sat down to share his story.
"Inmates tend to have many fruitless conversations. The average, hour-long prison conversation is like this: I lie for 20 minutes, you lie for 20 minutes, and for 20 minutes we discuss each other lies."
When it comes to prisons, the US favors quantity over quality. We lock up millions and then release them ill-equipped to reenter society, hampered by debt from prison fees, and barred from certain forms of government assistance.
