I personally don't have a problem with this. We gotta understand they are still humans and will be rea
Release back into society. Now I don't agree with them having it all the time it's prison / jail not the Marriott.

Technology and humans are becoming more and more married. Humans are becoming dependent on it. At a certain point it will become inhumane to take certain technologies away from people, even if they are inmates.

I think we're close to that point. The feeling of being so connected has been firmly planted into us by now, to the point where suddenly taking that ability to be connected away would be a major shock to the system.

If the average person was plucked from our connected society and made to live alone in a cabin with no connectivity, I think they would eventually be as damaged as inmates who go into solitary confinement for long stretches of time.

I guess I just don't understand. These people are in prison because of crimes. Give them the internet and they can run a crew, give orders, find out more info about their victims, witnesses ect.

Go on social media plot and plan. This seems crazy to me. Jail isn't supposed to be fun. You're not supposed to have internet and video games so you can enjoy your time or help pass it. It's to punish you and make you think about what you did and why you're there and why you don't want to go back.

Give em **** on the net, social media, unlimited contact and what's the take away from that?

And to think....we used to have to use pay phones on the road or outside the house. Technology is a great thing, but it is also ruining a large portion of our youth. They are hooked on it. On to inmates... they record all calls that inmates make...this gives the authorities a one up to be able to get more inside info imo. I would think it would have been a smarter move in the upper echelon Frderal Prisons. Not that it matters though. It could be used as a reward, maybe thatís how SC will approach it

Yeah, I'd have to imagine there's some kind of monitoring software on the phones. I know parents can buy phones like that for their young kids that shows what they're doing and limits their contacts and stuff.

I suppose it comes down to whether you think the primary focus of prisons should be to punish or rehabilitate the prisoners. Perhaps, this move may also reduce violence within prisons?

What the hell is wrong with McMasters allowing this?

I'm stunned, dumbfounded

This.

I would assume this internet service comes with some restrictions otherwise some mfers would be on p#rnhub til they passed out from exhaustion lol. Although I didn't watch the video so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm pro treating prisioners like regular people in as many reasonable ways as one can vs punishing mfers all day every day til they are released. The goal SHOULD be to use this time to make convicted citizens better citizens when they get out not to simply make them marinate their emotions & life for years in a cell looking at the wall.

If the internet helps allow some of them to deal with their time away from family & loved ones or pursue a better future path for themselves somehow I don't see how its bad.

I think lotsa cats are too hung up on biblical morality punishment bs too much in our still very Christian country. I think thats not 100% irrelevant as a solution, but I do think its outdated & ineffective as the primarly solution for all convicted citizens due to the recidivism rate we have.

We need to be playing around with better solutions to making these mfers better future citizens vs this housing for bad people approach thats our prision system has become.
