Prison Heads Ask FCC for Permission to Jam Cell Signals
It's funny that ...
Should airport security be denied X-Ray and metal detectors because actually searching people isn't 100% effective?
Should police be denied the ability to identify DNA because fingerprints aren't reliable?
That's what you're advocating. Technology that would make them able to do their jobs better should be denied because they can't make do with older methods.
Don't you understand that the only way that stuff gets in is because some of the guards are getting paid and taking under the table money. So jamming cell signals are not going to STOP it will only alter the direction of the prisoners outside communication method.
Airports that use X-ray's don't harm or assess a negative impact on surrounding neighborhoods like jamming cell signals will.
And yes, jamming signals would only shift the form of secretive communication to landlines, letters, and visitors. But landline calls and visits can be recorded and letters read (granted much of this communication happens in code, but code can be broken), and if letters are intercepted illegally, they are considered contraband.
I say go for it if there is no collateral damage to surrounding residents...
Tip from an older guy - analogies rarely make a valid point. It's very difficult to compare apples to mangoes.
