– [Interviewer] If you
had to eat this every day what would you think? (child retches) – Is this, like, all they eat? Or is there like taco Tuesday? (upbeat music) – [Interviewer] What do
you know about prison? – Prison, you go in there if
do something that’s not okay. – It’s a bad place. – They have bad food there. – I don’t think prisoners need to have the best, most fanciest food. – [Interviewer] Well we
are going to find out, because you are trying prison
food from around the world. All right Nicolas, open your eyes. – Eek.
– You wanna dig in? – Yeah but where’s the fork? – [Interviewer] In this
prison the inmates actually eat their food with their hands. – Wait, with my hands? – Then you mix it all together. (laughing)
– Good? – I mean in prison I wouldn’t really trust where my hands have been. I wouldn’t wanna use my hands to eat. – [Interviewer] Do you ever
ear your food with your hands? – Never.
– In this country there’s a bunch of stuff that
you can get in trouble for that we might think is kinda crazy. They really don’t like kissing in public. – Kissing in public, not a crime. – [Interviewer] So you
can either go to prison or sometimes they’ll give you 80 lashes. – Is that, like, with a belt? Oh my gosh. – I don’t know about that one. That sounds a bit, torturing. – [Interviewer] Do you
think giving someone like unhealthy or gross
food is torture in a way? – If I ate this every day
it’d make me pretty crazy. – I can never eat this every day. – Ooh, that smells horrible! – Oh my gosh. This does not look fully cooked. – Tastes like a sardine. – [Interviewer] Where do you
think this is from Celine? – Maybe, China? – [Interviewer] This is from Singapore. – What, Singapore? – [Interviewer] Yeah. – Guess what, you can not chew
gum or spit in the streets. – [Interviewer] Yes, that is correct. So in Singapore they have to eat all of their food on the ground. They have to sit in their
cell and it’s kind of like, slid to them through a hole. – I wish there was like a
little teeny, tiny table. – Can they eat on their bed? – [Interviewer] So they
actually don’t have a bed. – Do you sleep on the ground? – On the floor, there’s
no like little bed? – [Interviewer] There’s
just like a straw mat and a blanket, but no pillow. – Oh my gosh, I cannot
imagine living without a bed. Whoa. This looks like what I see in movies. – It doesn’t look good. – Pasta does not taste that great. – This is, not good. – No?
– No. – [Interviewer] What country
do you think this is from? – Mexico? Or maybe Italy? – England? – [Interviewer] This is from the U.S.A. – Is this, like, all they eat? Or is there like taco Tuesday? – [Interviewer] Not
usually taco Tuesday no. How many people do you think in the whole country are in jail? – 5,600. – [Interviewer] 2.2 million people. – That’s a pretty big number. – [Interviewer] The
U.S. alone spends up to $182 billion every year on prison. – What? Well I mean, like, they
gave us brownies, so like. – [Interviewer] So that price makes sense? – Yeah.
– Where’d all the cake go? – [Interviewer] I think you
ate all the cake Celine. All right, open your eyes. – What, is that rice? – Whoa, a real meal. That’s good.
– So this is from the Alexander Maconochie Center which describes itself as a
human rights compliant jail. – Sounds like a bit nicer of a jail. In their minds be like,
oh these people are human, they probably have reasons to
do this, they have rights too. – [Interviewer] Exactly. It’s a lot smaller, so there
are like 300 prisoners here and it has like a town square so there’s like a health
building, an education building, a library, a visiting center. – Whoa! – I’d tell them that’s pretty good, ’cause, they don’t want you to get dumb. – To give them, like, a chance? – [Interviewer] Yeah that’s
a good way of putting it, it’s kind of just giving
somebody a chance. – Sounds right. – I mean, I think if you treat a prisoner more like a human than an inmate they’ll probably feel like, oh, I’m being treated as a human I can still live a normal human life. – If I ever went to jail, I’d go here. – [Interviewer] Commit
a crime in Australia, if that’s really what you’ve
got your heart set on. Actually don’t, just don’t go to prison, I don’t know why I’m advising that. – Yeah but I’m just saying if I ever went to prison
that’s where I would go. – [Interviewer] Gotcha,
well a lot of times you don’t really get that choice. – I seriously don’t wanna go to jail. – [Interviewer] I do not want
you to go to jail either. Bye!
– Bye!

  1. Prisons should be
    #1 Rehabilitation
    #2 keeping them away from bad influence, and theirs from the street
    #3 punishment

  2. A bit overreacting. I was in a camp for a while were you got a bunch of mush in a different colour everyday. Sometimes it was green, or brown and partly you could recognise beans. If you had luck you got a fruit afterwards and water you had to buy yourself. I really don't want to be mean but this food actually looks tasty. I mean… there's nothing wrong with the food? It's better than
    starving when you are in prison.

    No hate ^^

  3. In kuwait (where I live) we eat food with our hands and if anyone offered us a fork or a spoon we would almost always say no

  4. Well
    The menu rotates and it's not great but a few meals were decent

    In Asia people use hands sometimes

    Caning is Islamic
    So poor people are being tortured by circumstances?
    Try pagpag
    This is a western video, any Filipino kid from province would chow down.

  5. In the land of the free (America) we have more people in prison than any other country. More people are imprisoned for first time minor offenses as well. Killing someone or manufacturing meth gets a shorter prison sentence than possession of marijuana. Sounds legitimate, right??? D.C. WTFU

  6. I didn't see insects in the mash ? Oh and at most should be cold, with hot tea without sugar. Oh and dont forget the bromide over dosed.

  7. Australia is a colony of prisoners so being in prison in Australia means you are truly useless and deserve the worst treatment available!

  8. What is the problem?
    These foods looks totally tasty and healthy.
    Many people would be happy to have these meals to eat 🙏

  9. Literally all of that food looked fine, especially when you take into consideration the country of origin and the fact that they would probably be eating similar meals out in the regular world as well.
    When the kid says “is there like taco Tuesday?”, I cracked up lol! Tacos are life kid lol

  10. You know best way to indoctrinate kids with your views, food. The last kid pretty much shows you why being “nice” to people who commit crimes isn’t the best solution. “If I ever committed a crime, I’d go here”

  11. Philadelphia has good looking prison food…in Mississippi I only had actual meat 2 times in 8 months (not counting bologna) and had to pick the bugs out of the greens (most of the food was grown there) and the most common ailment was constipation. 14 hours between supper and breakfast was common, not fun. Don't smoke the reefer in Mississippi.

  12. is there like a place where a 22 year old could sign up and be apart of the eating process? im really flippin hungry and cant afford to properly eat.

  13. The last meal looked like the worst one to me. I am not sure why the kids seemed excited by seeing it, unless they were coached to expect it to be better before they tried it.

  14. Kids: What ?! Eat with hands?!?!

    Me: * actually to lazy to get a fork and just wash my hands to eat * what ? I'm hungry!

    5:10 that child in prison 20 years later

    Cellmate: so… how did you end up here ?

    The child: Well… my mom don't wanna cook for me anymore cause I'm to old and… the food here is good, i tried it when I was a child
