This problem is so easy to fix

"Move over James Bond - the latest must-have gadgets for prisoners are watches concealing mobile phones.

Corrections staff recovered one such device when a prisoner's family tried to slip it to the inmate after a Parole Board hearing..."


Easy fix.

NO personal property allowed. No exceptions.

Inmates are allowed far too much personal property. They should have NOTHING that is not prison-issue.

This would make contraband harder to conceal- you would not believe how much crap they are allowed to have in a cell!

A cell should be like that of a monk's. The only decoration being a list of prison regulations on the wall.

Time should be kept by the bell and the hours of daylight.

Watches are not needed.

UPDATE:

Apparently this is harsh. That is right.

What else is harsh?

Getting murdered, assaulted, raped is harsh.

Having the conmtents of your house cleaned out is harsh.

ID'ing a dead family member is harsh.

Having your house burnt down is harsh.

So yes, I have no problem with criminals being treated harshly.
