Hookers, TVs, and cockfighting found in Mexico prison

State officials inspected an Acapulco, Mexico prison and were surprised to find 19 prostitutes, 100 plasma TVs, two sacks of marijuana, and 100 cockerels for fighting, according to the BBC News. Back in July, inmates of a Sonora jail "were found to be running a lottery to raffle off a luxury cell they'd equipped with a fridge, DVD player and air conditioning." The State Commission for the Defence of Human Rights is apparently concerned that the prisoners appear to be running their own penitentiaries.
