Here is a country that has spent billions trying to modernize and pretty up the place, but have not invested one red dime in modernizing it's penal system. The same archaic and inefficient system exists from 50 years ago. Have a team travel around the world to see what modern penology looks like. The NE jail in Colon is a nightmare.
