Portable Prison Cells Spotted

Lonewolf found this link — read the link for the narrative, they do indeed look like portable prison cells.

Vernal is a pretty small town by the way, I’ve been there several times.   This may be nothing — but then again, it may be something, I don’t know yet and reserve judgment.

    For whom the bell tolls indeed? I don’t know how well a crashstead will hold up when the brownshirts come and take you away. Specially when you become an outlaw just for thinking you are free or something. But heaven forbid if you are hoarding more then a days worth of food, that’s cause for an immediate execution. How fucking sad that we have come to this. Our politicians have the morals of sewer rats, no wonder our kids do drive-bys.All our heroes are fucking crooks. I guess we are getting exactly what the fuck we deserve!!! I thought that when I got into recovery that I would never have to pack a gun again. Shiiiiite; was I ever wrong. Been there, done that, not going down without a fight this time. FUCK EM ALL!!!!!

    Concrete isn’t exactly the most easily shipped material – nor the cheapest cage. It’s also very hard to remove blood and even shit stains from. So, why concrete? To muffle the screams of the ‘guests’ at Motel 666.

    They look like interrogation / holding cells to me. Not easy to tell if there is a bathroom, that might be that triangular shaped area for plumbing (or not).

    Ventilation looks poor and hot as hell in the Utah sun I’m sure.

    Very strange for these to be dropped off at Provo and taken to Vernal. If these were even going to be use at a state or fed. prison, there is rail service to the 3 closest ones ( Salt Lake,Fed and Gunniston, State and I do believe another state about 20 miles south of SL), plus if these came from east US they had to past Vernal to get to Provo… And what would a sleepy town of 7,000 pop. be wanting with holding/mini prison cells?

    I’ve been in a few holding tanks and more then a few holes(thirty days worth, get it}where the only plumbing was a hole in the concrete floor. At least these have sinks.

    The triangular area between the doors is a mechanical chaise, used for plumbing, ventilation, and electrical systems and access to same.
    The presence of the bunks indicates long term housing, rather than interrogation.
    Ferro-concrete construction is dirt cheap to manufacture and easy to prefab (culverts and sewer pipe come to mind), hence the selection….suitable for mass production.

    These photos give me the definite willies.

    Somebody is building a prison complex somewhere far away from infrastructure, otherwise it would be site built like normal.
