Is this constitutional? Forget that whole number about “free speech.” I’m thinking more about cruel and unusual punishment!
Department of Corrections officials believe that prisoners are using Facebook for nefarious means. NBC news investigated and found that one prisoner posted, “Listenin 2 sum music tryin 2 unwind.” This madness must stop.
In all seriousness, they also found evidence of harassment and it’s likely that there are worse offenders but that’s not a problem exclusive to the inmate population. There are plenty of free birds who use Facebook to attack others and troll for trouble. Facebook has systems to deal with these kinds of issues no matter who is behind them. Why not deal with offenders as they happen? Why ban every inmate across the board? And is that even possible?
