Indonesia Plans To Have Crocodile Prison Guards For Drug Offenders





Indonesian authorities have finally come up with the ultimate prison idea for death row drug convicts – an isolated island filled with crocodiles.

This is the new project being proposed by anti-drugs chief Budi Waseso. According to him, crocodiles are the best guards because they can never be bribed. These predators will be far more reliable than humans.

The controversial project has gained a lot of attention across the globe and reactions about it have been greatly mixed. Some human rights activists are opposing the initiative while others are applauding the concept.

According to Waseso, crocodiles are much better than human guards because they “cannot be bribed.”.

During an interview, Budi Waseso explained his plans:

“We will place as many crocodiles as we can there. I will search for the most ferocious type of crocodile. You can’t bribe crocodiles. You can’t convince them to let inmates escape.”

Of course, Waseso said that daily food will be provided for the inmates but for the most part, they really have to “survive on their own.”

Indonesia has always been strict about implementing punishments against drug offenders.

Although the plan has yet to be approved by the Justice Ministry, we wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually give it a go signal. Besides, the country is known for implementing strict laws against drug-related crimes. Last April 2015, nine foreign drug traffickers were killed by firing squad.

No opening date or location has been specified for this scary prison yet but it has been reported that Waseso has been personally going around crocodile farms to ensure that they have the fiercest predators for the job.
