And *you* think that you are going to stop the black market trade and the self abusive behaviors that goes on inside of prisons by 'dealing with it'? I'm afraid you're in never never land. It's not going to happen.

It's a bunch of bull, we all know that. We can't solve all of their problems. Sure, some of them can be helped and I'm not saying that the ones that can and want to be helped shouldn't be. But they are in the minority. Most of them don't want to be helped.
Using technology like this for better security in our prisons isn't a bad idea.
