Prisons Call Halt To Mobile Phones In Cells

The sysytem has a real obstacle and it is ..honest people. I know a young lady who works in corrections that was a theft, her father was always going to get her as a juvenlie. She is a correctional officer now. Where do you close the gap?  (Jan 11, 2009 | post #19)

The correctional officers are in the position to exploite these imates for money. The officers have found a need and they are supplying it for money. The goverment is having a challenge getting rid of contraband on the streets and now they are trying to get rid of it in the jail. One thing that is for sure is..you have to go through the administration to get it. Corruption.  (Jan 11, 2009 | post #18)

Folks have allowed people of criminal nature and strong pesonality to make them feel like they are "snitching ". When telling what has happened and assisting law enforcement is moral. If everyone started sticking together and being a livid eye..we'd be watching them run. This is crude behavior. Tha law does not protect. You are basically as bad as the person who committed the act. Yes, I believe that the Sheriff's Department could do more, and the County goverment needs to be held accountable. But, what about Housing and Community Development, they should do their part. Associations are very affective in making change-people with voter cards make things happen. But, will people participate? They are scare to talk in the communities that they pay taxes for. I'd be damned if I won't tell on you. Come in my neighborhood, where I pay $3200 in taxes, work everyday, paid for my belongings by busting my tail..and you think you will be bad enough to coming in here and do some thing. You will go down. I will see you; call the police and I might get in my car and follow you, depends. I am married to an officer. They depend on people. I am studing jurisprudence (law). Nothing happens without strong witness and direct evidence. When these criminals know that you will not tell they will terrorize even more, like a broom swiping near a community near you.  (Jan 11, 2009 | post #3)
