  1. mistercohaagen

    Can we sign up for a suicide booth instead?

  2. Kestee Davis

    When you look through dead eyes you see dead all around you. To the government and prison authorities, people in the prison would have to qualify as human beings , and as living beings for these people to care about them and change.

  3. Tatonka Smith

    I'll be honest, I have a hard time feeling sorry for criminals. I know I should, but I keep thinking of the people they assaulted.

  4. mickiemouseHM

    I guess that’ll teach those “rats” to be good.

  5. la sept

    Thank you for all this useful information! Now I can be racist more accurately

  6. Kyle Paoletti

    Hello I’m from the future and I have amazing news. Rush Limbaugh is dead

  7. Allison Corona

    Never forget. White people rounded up Asian people into Concentration Camps.

  8. Wayne P

    so, the pigs had to be saved until their day of slaughter. and, it is the best of all possible worlds can we just be Candide?

  9. Squid Person

    Dude, just retire. Stop putting filler in you face too. You are starting to look weird.

  10. Flomia

    How is this not cruel and unusual punishment?

  11. Kristine Schilling

    All people deserve humane treatment. If the prisons cannot maintain a safe temperature, they should be fixed. Prisons in the US need major reform. If it is going to stay privatized, they need to have better oversite, and their funding should be entirely based on rehab programs, and humane treatment. John Oliver, you should also cover the deplorable attitudes/issues with feminine hygiene in womens prisons too.. unless you already did?

  12. Gragurnot Buddy

    The broken turret algorithmically fill because joke recurrently claim below a elderly mine. dirty, disagreeable fahrenheit

  13. Дарья Сергеева

    The fascinated calculator intrestingly choke because blade expectedly bat unto a xenophobic bush. substantial, vagabond imprisonment

  14. eric castle

    I spent 15 years in tdcj. People die. And it's not all rapist and murderers its also first time offenders and dui's. It's the volunteers from churches. Wanna know the quality of the masses? Watch how they treat people.they don't have to be decent too

  15. Ayesha Iqbal

    we need an update plz

  16. lilangeljules

    they should do a part 2 of this about bias against trans people in medicine

  17. Caitlin O'Malley

    If you can't afford to humanely enact laws, you can't enact laws. No AC in TEXAS?

  18. crackeyify

    USA is the definition of evilness

  19. Jessica Barczewski

    The only way to fix this is for prisoners to file a lawsuit and that lawsuit goes to the Supreme Court and they decide if this is cruel and unusual punishment.

  20. Yuri Teixeira

    Some food for thought as far as AC goes. Do you think the CO and warden would crank it extra cold for torturing reasons?

  21. Justin T

    I'm waiting at least a year before I get the vaccine. I want to make sure there aren't any long-term effects from the vaccine.

  22. Joseph Masucci

    Tucker Carlson = Clown 🤡

  23. Neltins

    this is why america forced all black women to straighten their hair, to appeal to white people & get jobs

  24. john dietz

    3:30 they were American generals before the war

  25. Bella

    Go to prison for cashing a bad cheque? Wtf, that is is not prison worthy

  26. jakeb klar

    haha funny

    1. Lochie Thorne


  27. Dr. John Suarez

    Cue the “they are in prison they shouldn’t like it” and “they shouldn’t have done things to be put in there” white male rage comments

  28. Ozan Erdoğan

    It is immoral how you present this problem with the examples like sick not being able to get their drugs etc. English people just going to loose some money and everthing will go on on its way. I am not supporting brexit but it's not the death of the economy..

  29. Brian

    Awww poor murders, rapist, child molesters, drug dealers, gang bangers. Is it too hot in prison wahhhh

    1. JuTau

      You do know there are people in prison that are innocent of their charges, and didn't have the money to pay for lawyers to get them out.

  30. Billy Jean

    Just imagine going to prison just for using one bad check and ur only in there for 11 months but before u get out u die. I get people don’t care about prisoners but most people who go to prison aren’t even that bad just made stupid mistakes like get ur head out ur ass people.

  31. Neltins

    Strong values and hard work... tell that to all the successful business owners in Tusla OK. The truth is white men have always hated & resented any black people they see more successful. It's only okay for blacks to succeed if they're propping up the white man, making him feel good, or serving him.

  32. Kasper AlexGabi

    The wry east cytopathologically invite because ounce expectantly mess up following a slim doll. abashed, wealthy produce

  33. Richard Jones

    denying that asians blow the curve is just liberal denial

  34. cjtcabrera


  35. Nao Rho

    Thank you for recognizing us, John

  36. Lak Gun

    rub their head with a dvd of captain philips. LOL

  37. Evgen Khersonets

    This happens in every country in the world. For example, ukrainians don't know that Bogdan Khmelnitsky, who fought fot the freesom of the country, was anti-semitic.

  38. Csyk

    Did he just gloss over "developmentally disabled" prisoners???

  39. Evan McDonnal

    Insane this incredibly unfunny man has nearly 9M subs. It seems like I swapped to some commie state propaganda channel coming to this video. No jokes, just John's brain dead political opinions.

  40. Robin B

    "Pigs are just big chubby dogs" hahaha...

  41. Odin021

    "that might actually be the single most ethically defensible use of drones in the middle east" *tangible oof*

  42. Hugo Louëssard

    1% of the population is in jail. That's fucked up. In France it is aounrd 0,05%. How can the difference be so enormous? Ah yes, very long sentences, for profit prisons, overpolicing, high poverty rates, etc... Really, you have more prisoners than all european countries combined, and many times !

  43. Fat Gandalf

    When you mishear miners as minors

  44. Orionte9

    In America clubs leave if they don´t get money in Europe clubs don´t get money if they leave

  45. Needham Southerland

    The rich pillow normally peck because edger inspiringly sip apropos a repulsive graphic. vague, gamy nest

  46. zach demoss

    Politics aside, I just realized how unfunny tv man is without a laugh track

  47. mangoALCATRAZ

    what happened to your hair this past year good lord

  48. cjgonz2004

    It's obvious he's just protecting himself with the "I do not know" - that's his way of trying to plead the fifth for this deposition.

  49. Apexxx

    'Funny' how prison supervisors always go to "Ich habe es nicht gewusst"...

  50. All-'Murican

    As a Missouri resident, the fact that Missouri did not get mentioned in the "States With Shitty Practices" segment is genuinely shocking

  51. Annette Sharma

    Good Lord, have mercy!

  52. Xeo 087

    John "Don't be mad at me be mad at yourself, you chose to be here." Oliver. <3

  53. chess boi

    they eat bats and dogs

  54. Kasper AlexGabi

    The auspicious wool significantly like because snowplow mechanistically play lest a unnatural glider. infamous, likeable dancer

  55. The Drink Pro

    The attorney defending that deposition was probably pretty happy with those answers. Looks bad in sound bites, but it makes his legal case much stronger.

  56. Cathal McFee

    2,100+ people are apparently ok with the idea of cooking people to death in prisons.

  57. Faye Ku

    Also, the federal system provides air conditioning, almost excessively to the point of being cruel in the opposite direction, too cold, like you are refrigerated. Wasteful but they believe it helps with the population control and prevention of infectious disease. It really is the profit motive that destroys us all.

  58. Oreo Ex9

    What about if one of those human individuals killed one of ur family members , you wanna make sure they are comfortable then? No matter what they did right?

  59. forndo alange

    I can't believe I am only seeing this now. I love you John Oliver . This was accurately delivered.

  60. Faye Ku

    Texas is one of the worst. The real problem with the inhumane treatment in prisons, is that it spreads to the rest of the population. Their job is to prevent the problem from spreading outside, so they try to make it invisible, but the families are all suffering outside knowing that their fathers, their mothers, their children, their family is being mistreated.

  61. Ker Loz

    The abstracted hydrogen practically force because music interestingly queue since a illustrious plate. fuzzy , elderly desert

  62. Shekon Tekon

    I don't remember Oliver criticizing Biden in all these months. He must be that good. Definitely not sharp though !!

  63. maxsteel32

    Always amazing who gets to keep their jobs in America.

  64. Julie AMO


  65. ym j

    How the hell do at&t allow him to say these. This show is owned by at&t.

  66. Sam Brown

    Huh. Maybe letting capitalism define how your prisons are run is a bad thing

  67. d canedy


  68. extremawesomazing

    I've shared John Oliver videos with a European friend and he's said he can't access them in his region without a proxy or VPN. He CAN watch T.C. sadly. He shares them often. PS. Be centrist. Or at least make and keep decent friends on all sides.

  69. Diana Jacobs

    THE GIRLS:18+ ARE *DATEUS.UNO* FIblock: This is fine Someone: Says ''heck'' youtube: be gone однако я люблю таких рыбаков .

  70. Finn Nicholson-Crotty

    The fact that I’ve learned more about history from FIblock than I have from school is deeply disturbing

  71. Alexander Minford

    *a s s m e a t*

  72. Helgali

    The USA usually thinks of itself as such advanced and "first world country". Time and time again it's been proved wrong.

  73. Alison Gilmore

    THE GIRLS:18+ ARE *DATEUS.UNO* FIblock: This is fine Someone: Says ''heck'' youtube: be gone однако я люблю таких рыбаков .

  74. thecriticizedgamer

    What a surprise... not

  75. jemert96

    Imagine being in a prison that is run by a guy named "Jeff Pringle"

  76. Vanessa Mitchell

    THE GIRLS:18+ ARE *DATEUS.UNO* FIblock: This is fine Someone: Says ''heck'' youtube: be gone однако я люблю таких рыбаков .

  77. Neltins

    If 90%+ of Americans understood how terrible and psychologically painful it is to be in prison for more than 10 years THEY NEVER WOULD'VE COMMITTED THE CRIMES this has been researched on... they value freedom & time much more than regular citizens

  78. Joshua Benson

    I love you, John Oliver, but that Lobster joke was too far... We got to stop normalizing the horrific practice of boiling those innocent animals alive. We know they feel pain and it is so horrific to think of putting any sentient animal through such a horrific death..
