Cell Phones in Prison, Step Away From Strip Searches to Fly

by on Dec.05, 2010, under News

I’d file this under not making much sense. I read an article about cell phones in California prisons after Charles Manson was caught with one in 2009. I’d like to know how people are able to smuggle cell phones into prison to give to murderers. How do they charge the cell phones? Do they also smuggle in chargers? Do they have Wi-Fi in prison so that they can save their minutes and use FaceTime on their iPhones? Who is paying the bills and/or adding minutes to pre-paid cell phones?

At the same time, there are so many stories about the ridiculousness of the TSA. the rest of us non-felons can’t bring more than 100 mL of fluid in a single bottle past airport security. And actually, we can’t bring 1 mL of fluid in a bottle larger than 100 mL past security.┬áIt looks like California needs to hire the TSA to secure their prisons.
