Seems like everyone is a critic — even inmates. The Washington Post reported that lawyers and family members are gleaning some good information from prisoner reviews on Yelp, the Huffington Post said.

But, the experience paid off and the reviewer closed the review with these sage words: “Thank you, Rikers Island: It took me just a few weeks to realize I would never drink and drive again.”
