OPINION|| 8 Types of Prisoners Who Are Given Special Treatment In Jail

As everyone probably knows by now, In all walks of life whether in its in the workplace, political party, music industry, choir, business world, football team or even school, there's always some sort of favouritism applied to certain individuals

Believe it or not, it doesn't just end there in those above industries that are civilized, that favouritism also exists in behind those cold hard bars in prison. YES! you've read that right, some prisoners receive more special treatment than the others.

Now the 1 hundred thousand trillion rand question, "why would prisoners receive more special treatment than the others?"....

Well its not an ABC answer, but it's more related to the the type of position that particular prisoners holds amongst the prison cells.

For instance, as you all know that former president Jacob Zuma, is behind bars currently at Escourt Prison for contemp of court....there's just no way he's treated as other normal prisoners because of the type of position he has held at a public level.

Now without any further ado, let's check out some of the prisoners who are probably given special treatment as compared to the rest of the crowd, see the list below:

8 Types Of Prisoners Who're Given Special Treatment

- Drug Lords

- Cooks/ Cleaners

- Disabled Jailbirds

- Prisoners Who're Sick

- Wealthy Prisoners

- Political Prisoners

- Celeb Prisoners

- Pastor Prisoners

As yall can see, these prisonsers are given special treatment because the position they are holding isn't regular at all. Unfortunately if these prisioners spend years behind those bars, that special treatment will also vanish.

Well it goes without saying that some Prisoners who are given special treatment may exist outside these 8 listed ones, but fact of the matter is that, those 8 listed ones encompasses the rest of what is possible.
