One of the cells on the maximum security cell block of the West Virginia State Penitentiary, this one heavily decorated by one of its most recent residents.

The most dangerous prisoners were kept in this area, locked up nearly around the clock behind bars that had extra steels grating to keep the inmates from getting their hands on whoever was passing by, or throwing stuff with any accuracy.

Every so often one of these guys would set his bedding on fire, at which point the guards would firehose the entire cell without opening it, then leave him sitting in the charred, sodden mess for a while to contemplate his existence.
