The convict was actually on eBay when he was caught. He was selling stolen property from other convicts. Of course the Sing Sing officer was getting kickbacks on sold merchandise. But that's nothing new, convicts in Sing Sing and other correctional facilities throughout this country have been using electronic devices, like cell phones, for years. Items like this are brought in through family visits, friends who visit, civilian workers and officers.
I worked in Sing Sing for 13 years before transferring to another prison and in my new book, "Ruins of a Society and the Honorable," I speak of all the corruption, injustices and discrimination the plagued Sing Sing prison.
