It’s tough out there for an ex-convict who’s been released from jail. It’s hard to get a job, because potential employers don’t trust you. You can’t vote (at least, not if you’re convicted of a felony). Essentially your past mistakes will continue to follow you around in spite of the fact you’ve paid for your crimes. What’s more frustrating, there really aren’t a lot of outlets for ex-cons to constructively vent their rage. So, in the age of the internet, several of the more creative ex-cons have taken to the internet’s variety of review services and let their opinions be known. So here, for your consideration, are some of the weirdest hotel-like prison reviews from ex-cons on Yelp and Google.
1. Wormwood Scrubs is a “great place to get away from the wife and kids.”
Located in west London, Wormwood Scrubs has a reputation reaching back into the storied city’s past. Of course, you wouldn’t know it with reviews from ex-patrons like Michael Pollard, who happily proclaimed the prison a “great place to get away from the wife and kids.” Yet another review from ex-con Steve Hall said that while the food left something to be desired, the location still had “plenty of bars.”
