    Friend there's some really nasty state prisons where it's not air conditioning and there is stabbing 3 times a day and there's some very nice state prisons that there is no violence going on and it's more like a college dorm that you just can't leave. The same thing with Federal prison there's some really nasty ones and there's some really nice ones it pretty much depends on how nasty you are in court and if the judge feels you're a threat to society and needs to be removed from society or if he feels there's Hope to rehabilitate you

    Depends on the prison. A low security federal prison is going to be "less violent" then a high security state prison. The federal will be "white collar" (non-violent) crimes, while the state will be violent offenders. While a high security federal prison will be "more violent" then a low security federal prison.

    Even between two low security prisons there may be a difference depending on how well the prison is run.

    No way to answer this question without a lot more detail.

    State prisons.

    Federal prisons are used to house individuals convicted of breaking federal law. The federal prison system has existed since 1930 when President Hoover established it. Federal prisons have three different classifications: low security, medium security and high security. Most of the individuals housed in federal facilities have broken drug laws or have committed some kind of political crime. Also, individuals convicted of bank robbery and various white collar crimes may also find themselves in federal prison.

    Here are a few more differences between state and federal prison:

    There are more state prisons than federal prisons.

    Federal prisons tend to have higher security than state ones.

    Prisoners who have committed violent crimes are more likely to be in state prison,

    State prisons are often considered to be less safe than federal ones because more violent criminals live in them.
