In jail, there are prisoners who use their abilities in creating weapons. Although it is prohibited, some can still find ways to make their creations hidden and unnoticeable by the prison security.
The creation of weaponry of inmates is nothing but dreadful.
These weapons are created by inmates own inventiveness and resourcefulness.
Prison is a frightening place, there are violent convicts and one way to protect themselves from other offenders or perhaps find their way out of jail is to construct weapons.

These photos show how dangerous and ingenious weapons crafted by the inmates.
Two prisoners in Germany took an inmate as hostage on May 21, 1984. They used a shotgun weapon made from iron bedposts, pieces of lead from curtain tape and set fire by broken light bulb and AA batteries. The inmates were able to escape through a car after shooting the bullet proof glass window.
