Did you read about the one Todd Chrisley went to or is going to? It irritates me so bad reading about the tennis and basketball courts, the hobby shops, the woodworking and music room. Pool room. Store that had everything Basically like a locked down apartment building. White collar criminals go to fantastic prisons and Sam won’t suffer. He will be there for max 10 years and come out to the billions left to him by his parents. I hate this dude.

It's the rules. White collar criminals are often smart - they know not to escape because they are able to plan ahead at least short windows into the future. (they wouldn't be criminals if they could plan long term). So the prison doesn't need bars or guard towers, just a daily roll call. If you escape they send you to a higher security facility.

They don't necessarily riot or destroy property, and they often have money stashed to afford the prison staples. If they do escape they don't necessarily murder or rape, maybe a little conning.

I'm just saying - some of the suffering violent criminals and poor criminals endure is because the prison HAS to be built like that. Another problem is the state prison system is inconsistent, some state prisons are hell on earth, others are probably about as nice as a federal prison.
