Drone captures Moundsville prison video
This is an amazing video of Moundsville Penitentiary taken from a drone. Click on http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/west-virginia/wv-pen-drone/ to see it.
The castle-like structure is a smaller imitation of the Joliet prison that operated from 1876 to 1995 in Moundsville. Today, it’s a tourist attraction near the largest Indian mound in America.
96 men were executed there. Others were killed by other inmates.
The scariest thing, to me, after watching the video from the drone: How easy it would be for a terrorist to put a light explosive the size of a pack of cigarettes on a drone and then drop it just about anywhere in the world without prior detection.
It would be devastating.
