I'm not surprised, but the publicity is to bring some good attention to the higher ups "cracking down" on contraband since that's the big issue these days, not overcrowding, program and educational cuts, and every other issue they're dealing with.

I hope this sends a warning to loved ones not to risk this with so much to lose but then again, this is the least of some people's concerns.

Exactly how did he plan to get all that back to his cell? Doesn't everybody get a strip search after visits?

Yes, they do some type of strip search as my love shared with me. I'm pretty sure they had some help, but I do believe the only reason this is getting so much local attention is the attitude that they want to be tough on contraband and this says, "Hey, Joe and Jane Public, you're safer because we're doing better keeping the bad guys in line and punishing anyone who tries to help them!".

Not to detour from the incident but SCDC has been cracking down hardcore ever since that group of inmates thought it was a brilliant idea to make their rap song and post it on YouTube and FB with a cell phone. Proudly sporting their SCDC state issues. SCDC went livid and those couple of guys that were about to go home added couple years onto their sentence with hole shots. SCDC started tightening up their reins on cells and contraband.

That's not true. Just as everything else online, what appears to be isn't always what it is.

There have been more than a dozen murders over the past 2 years that have been unrelated to contraband and cell phones, and more to do with what their not "tightening up their reins on."

This is getting to be too frequent and I know too many families who have sleepless nights concerned about their loved ones safety, be it an offender or a corrections officer.

Its true that SCDC is giving harsher disciplinary sentences to inmates being found with contraband. What part wasn't true about the individuals who made the video...that SCDC hasn't been cracking down? It seemed as such to me after 2 people I knew was found with cell phones.

That's not true either. I'm not sure where your information is coming from but I prefer to keep things factual for the loved ones here who have no other resource to turn to. Too much is happening in our prison system for rumors to outweigh facts.
