Paranormal tour in the Crum last night - no spooks but getting into other wings of the prison that aren't part of the regular tour is interesting. We'll always have 'are you having a baby?' and 'do you want me to come upstairs?' though @lesley.ann33
*NEW EPISODE* @mattbutlersongs
comes in to tell us about the unusual story behind his song “Fear & Desire” and why he’s started a foundation @j1fndn
that’s taking him down a new and unexpected career path as a musician since his prison tours bringing music to incarcerated populations across the U.S. 🙌🏻

We had a fascinating visit to Fremantle Prison in the holidays and by all accounts need to return for a tour of the tunnels. Built by convict labour 1851-1859 and the main place of incarceration in WA until 1991. It is State and World Heritage listed and well with a visit.
SHOULD RAPISTS BE KILLED? This innocuous looking ‘swimming pool’ has been used for the execution of many sex offenders in San Pedro Prison. Inmates band together and beat rapists before drowning them. What’s your opinion on this? #marchingpowder

Some raw footage of an acoustic jam for 250 inmates at the Camp Hill State Prison. #maximumsecurity
This is the gas chamber at Wyoming Frontier Prison. Five men were executed in this chair with the use of hydrocyanic-acid.
Also pictured is the “humane gallows”. A condemned prisoner would essentially hang himself by standing on a trap door that fell open when his body weight forced enough water out of counterbalanced bucket. This removes the executioner from the process, thereby transferring the act of hanging onto the prisoner himself.
The window pictured was directly in front of the trap door. The last view.
I highly recommend this tour if you are ever traveling through Wyoming on I-80. SO much interesting history!! And it felt A LOT more intimate and ominous than the Alcatraz tour imo.
