Often,the gang leaders will force a lesser guy that has nothing to offer (no family,no money,etc) to communicate with someone and sched. visits were they attempt to pass drugs, they often get caught and the inmate will get time added to his sentence and the one who brings it in is charged, if the inmate refuses they will beat/kill him.This adds to the endless cycle of misery that is the prison system, Americans seem to care less. Oh, there is alot of simple corruption as well.

It actually makes me wonder if the staff really even cares about drugs. They do care about weapons, of course, but I think that they could care less if the inmates drug themselves up. Who would you rather guard all day? Someone nodding off on dope, or someone just hanging out? Drug addicts are pretty laid back, unless it is meth or crack, and that stuff is pretty difficult to do in prison anyway.

Where there's a will, there's a way. Some guards, not being corrupt, are just lazy. They get to trust this or that favorite inmate and figure they don't have to check this time. They don't check care packages coming in the mail. Some visiting rooms allow visitors to touch the prisoners, so they can hold their children, etc., and it's not unusual to smuggle a ziploc full of this or that inside a baby's loaded diaper that no guard on earth wants to look inside.

Not sure about other counties, but here in Florida, it has been proven on many occasions it was the correction officers......................

Finally, two corrections officers were arrested, one for delivering illegal drugs to inmates and the other for helping an inmate attempt a dangerous escape

Violent Inmate Escapes From Osceola Jail - News Story - WFTV Orlando
Speaking of escapes in FL,I know in the Pinellas County Jail they had to start being more thorough when releasing inmates because all it took was cutting off a plastic wrist band with a name and inmate number. The wrist bands are supossed to be tamper proof but an inmate incarcerated for short county time may give his to a lifer or someone facing a long sentence and out the door he goes.

I believe now you have to verbally state your name ,DOB,SSN, mother's maiden name and even be fingerprinted on the way out so they make sure they're releasing the right guy.

Florida always has bazaar crimes. I don't know. There are so many stellar law enforcement officers and jail guards....but we have our share of those who make lots of money on the side working with and assisting the gangs/drug dealers.

I don't feel unsafe living here because I don't know these sort of people, but the sheer magnitude of gang related crimes is overwhelming.

If any of you recall Susan Smith. She murdered her two sons, 3 year old Michael and 14 months old Alex. She strapped them in their car seats and drove the car to the John D. Long Lake and let the car roll into the lake drowning both children. One of the divers that located the car said a little hand was pressed against the rear window.

In 2000 Smith was having sex with a prison guard and had to be treated for an STD. The guard had been employed there 13 years. Under questioning she admitted there was a second guard too. He was a Captain and night supervisor. Both guards pleaded guilty.

This brought about an investigation by our state and over a dozen guards were terminated for having sex with inmates or smuggling drugs.

Susan Smith was transferred to another prison. It seems inmates can get drugs and now they are getting cell phones smuggled in too.

the entire system not just the prison officers are currupt. So is our government who allows it to continue this long. Notice none of the workers get arrested for any of this and the prisons are still open. you think that they would arrest the person in charge and close down a prison who continues to have the same exact issue with drugs.
