why is this a problem
I don’t like prisons and have no sympathy for depraved individuals but all I can see wrong is some loser got an obama phone
welfare phone as they are known in social worker language
of course an inmate shouldn’t have a cell phone
Cell phones are the #1 contraband item in prisons, ahead of tobacco and even drugs. Many jurisdictions would like to install cell phone jammers but the FCC won’t allow it. Cell phone detection units only work when the phone is on, so most prisoners keep them off except when in use.
Phone calls to prison inmates are a major revenue stream for the government. Typical charges include a $5 ‘connection fee’ plus a dollar a minute. The service provider and the local government usually split the take. They can’t have prisoners with cell phones cutting into their profits.
This thread is touching on the preeminent hypocrisy in this nation:
Government agencies seek to impose tougher & tougher regulations on law-abiding citizens for weapons, drugs & violence and purport to enact what they refer to as ‘border security’, yet in the high-security confines of a prison they can’t even keep out the contraband.
What a joke.
