I Think the public has the right to SEE how inmates are living,and how the guards handle things and also the inmates.maybe if more people know (learn) whats going on in these prisons, FAMILIES can't hold their loved ones or even have support groups for couples,and children.while they are doing time it could be used in a positive way. every inmate are not the same - there are ones that have families, they should be able to a support group with their loved ones. thanks

no one peson is perfect and we all make mistakes.individual in prison are paying for their mistakes..and i believe that they should beable to have a web site to reach out to the show the cmmunity what goes on inside prison..just because they are paying for a mistake should not mean they should not beable to live as normal as possible..i read where it said some was worried about virus or trojan they would create..well news flash u do not have to be a inmate to create that and ones in the outside world do alot worse..

This is a level 5 correctional institution ladies and gentleman. The inmates are there for a reason. A website?? Are you kidding me?? Do you even understand the potential risk associated with that? Not even about a virus or trojan, but the opportunity to have an outside accomplice do your work for you while still in prison. Not to mention the ability to span a statewide prison riot via the world wide web. I understand the regret and sorrow felt for these individuals, but think about the reason they are in there before allowing them to have the freedoms that we do.
