I'm going to say this as plainly as possible: those people deserve to have their privileges revoked. That is sick.
New people showing up at some prisons from wherever could cause a spike in demand. Same with booking and not showing whether or not you cancel. But those alone do not explain the magnitude of the problem.

It is possible the BS behaviors above could explain it. There would have to be a group of idiots doing it. A half dozen or so with multiple accounts grabbing max slots with each account than selling appointments - or whatever it is they do - could cause a lot of damage. Screwing things for everyone else. If that is the issue, balls to those people.

That is an interesting suggestion, Refunded if you show for your appointment but you pay for every single appointment that doesn't show. Impose a deadline for refundable cancellations; maybe early Friday morning. You reserve 5 appointments and only one shows up, you just paid for the other 4.
