Inmates shouldn’t be allowed to play on FB

Posted: Wednesday, November 20, 2013 12:04 am

Being a member of Facebook, I was surprised to see a Facebook account for a convicted murderer, Leeroy Suarez, from New Braunfels. I cannot believe our prison system allows prisoners to have access to a computer.

Taxpayers are paying for these convicted prisoners to play around on the Internet and to possibly prey on whoever they choose. Gov. Rick Perry and other higher-ups cannot know this is going on. Our governor is out running around all over the United States and the world — again on our tax dollars — and this kind of thing is going on right here at home.

    I can understand both sides of this problem. On the one hand, confinement officials try to use every method to keep prisoners from mischief due to boredom, while on the other hand, access to the internet and all it's contacts and content is hardly the "separation from society" that the courts and public had in mind during sentencing. Perhaps Sheriff Joe Arapio of Arizona has the right formula - minimal accomodations, minimal cost meals, no entertainment and minimal outside contact by the prisoners.
