Has anyone ever been to a prison?

I've never been to one, but I think it would be fascinating. We have HMP Dartmoor here in the South West in the middle of barren moorland and in the winter it's quite eerie. It's like 500 years old.

I had to visit a family member in jail a couple times. Not quite the same as prison.

Doesn't surprise anyone. I'm surprised you aren't in jail as we speak.

Hah.


Whats the difference between jail and prison?

Do you mean like an overnight county lock up / remand centre (as we call them here)?

If Hollywood cases are anything to go by, it seems really easy to spend a night in jail in the USA. ie really easy to get arrested and thrown in there for some misdemeanor

Usually we say jail when it's a short term thing or perhaps not high security. And prison when you'll be there for a while and can be maximum security.

All noble freedom fighters went to "jail"

We don't say Nelson Mandela went to prison.

Gandhi went to jail.

Taliban terrorist go to prison, not jail.
