Disparity

Not long ago I got the chance to meet and interview some individuals convicted of certain crimes at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City. This group of young men doesn’t look like goons or those portrayed in gangster movies. With their boyish look, you wouldn’t think they could harm a fly.

Anyway, one of the young men admitted how it works inside the prison. Some inmates who belong to rich clan enjoys the comfort those living outside the cell would take pleasure in like puffing cohiba cigars, or living in quarters with complete amenities. A friend priest even disclosed that an influential inmate who was already pardoned used to leave NBP at night using his private aircraft. I’m sure you have an idea who is this influential person I’m referring to. Money works beyond prison walls indeed.
