Five star prison, all needs catered for

How prisoners aquire just about anything they need, to make life easier and more comfortable when they are supposed to be being punished for their crime.

Comforts of prison

I was visiting a friend the other day, and while having a bottle of beer my friend opened a shoe box and pulled out a brand new pair of running shoes, at which I commented “they are smart could do with a pair like that myself“, so after letting me know where I could purchase a pair he disappeared into the kitchen for just a few seconds with a paring knife and proceeded to hack a hole in the insole, so being very inquisitive to why he was doing this I had to ask “why are you wrecking a brand new pair of running shoes“, he replied in a casual manner “got to get a mobile phone to mike who is in prison“, to my astonishment I remembered watching the news just days before on how contraband was being entered into the prisons,
So even more intrigued I said to him so how do you get the phone from inside your insole to the prisoner, he said it’s easy when you visit someone in the visiting room of the prison you sit facing the prisoner and the wardens are watching your hands to see if you are passing things to the prisoners, so instead of passing across the table you simply swap shoes under the table, that’s why my laces will not be tied, it makes it easy to kick of your shoes and play a little footsy under the table and the swap is done,
Obviously this method can be used for all sorts of things being passed to the prisoners, at the end of the day if they want something in jail they will get it.

Actually, Sketch, that method would not work at the majority of America's prisons--State or Federal. I am a reserve officer and I have relatives that work in the correctional system. Items like shoes are subject to x-ray examination before given to a prisoner. His method might work at a minimal security facility but even then it would not be 100 percent effective. There are far more effective ways for an inmate to get contraband items into a prison, but I'm not going to expound on them because this site is accessible by anyone with a computer and I'm not going to be the one to provide someone with that information.
