A former convict has revealed how school shooters and child molesters are among those who are ‘tortured beyond means’ or beaten to death while in prison.
The ex-inmate, who has gained nearly 600,000 followers on TikTok for sharing his insight into life in prison, says that criminals are treated differently depending on their offences.
The man, who doesn’t share his name online but goes by Viking, from Florida, spent three years in juvenile detention and six years in prison for burglary of a dwelling, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and three counts of possessing a controlled substance without prescription.
But since being released, he has turned his life around by launching his own vitamin and wellness company, Viking Mindset, and become an online celebrity.
The Mail reports that he went viral after revealing how school shooters are mercilessly tormented by the guards and other convicts.

In a TikTok video, which got more than 19.5m views, he said that he encountered three different school shooters in prison.
He said the men were often sexually assaulted by other convicts and that “officers would spit in their food” and even add stuff to their meals to purposely make them sick.
“They would get tortured beyond means,” the Mail quotes him as saying. “In prison, when you kill a kid, you get no remorse, people don’t give you the benefit of the doubt, you’re just pure evil.
“Evil finds evil and makes more evil. That’s exactly what happened to them.”
In another video, Viking spoke out about how “molesters and predators” were treated if they committed offences against women and children.
He said: “It doesn’t matter your color, your creed, your race, your religion, your gang, what you believe in and don’t believe in – if you hurt an innocent one in those types of ways, you will get dealt with.
“Your taxpayer money is going towards the torture of these pieces of s***. Every single day, they’re worried about getting ended, they’re worried about starving, getting extorted.
“And not just by the convicts, by the guards. It’s all in. You hurt a child or woman, you’re done.”
Viking claimed prison guards had even killed some of the worst offenders.
“The most sadistic officers cover solitary confinement, and they murder inmates all the time in prison,” he said.
“I’ve seen inmates stabbing other inmates, I’ve seen officers throwing inmates off the top [floor], gassing them in the showers.”
Viking explained that everyone in prison has to deal with difficult conditions, adding that guards “put you in a cell with your worst enemy and they have you fight for 15 minutes while they gamble on you.
“They put you in the shower with scalding hot water on your back and pepper spray you until you collapse.
“They starve you. In the winter they put the exhaust fans on to pull in the cold air. Then when they put the heaters on they put pepper spray in the heaters.
“In the summer, when it’s 101 degrees, they put the heaters on in your cell. And if they find you with your window open, they come in and gas you and beat the s*** out of you. It’s horrific.”
Since leaving prison, Viking has launched his own vitamin and wellness company, Viking Mindset, while also producing video content for social media sites such as TikTok and Instagram.
