This video (scroll down a while to find it) about the Pelican Bay supermax prison in California has guards saying that gang leader inmates have ordered murders in the outside world, something many other have corroborated. They even have an ex-Navy Seal working there trying to infiltrate gangs and turn the leaders.
DJ, who blogs here, has commented that he has a friend in another California prison whose cell mate is a heroin addict. Yes, he’s shooting heroin inside of prison.
What no one has ever explained, to my knowledge at least, is how does information flow in and out of prisons and how do the drugs get inside? An obvious possibility would be the guards (either willingly or unwillingly) and of course visitors. But visitors, it would seem, would have trouble bringing in enough drugs on a steady basis, so there must be other ways it gets in. And how does the order for a murder from a gang leader get out of a supermax prison into the outside world?
While some guards are no doubt corrupt and others might be threatened into relaying messages and drugs, again, it seems this happens too much for just a few risky channels to be doing most or all of it.
So, what other methods could there be?
