How to stay sane and effective while remaining within the system
I guess the prison system is as good as any

It was the pigeons! Under the guards' noses, inmates trained these rats of the air (on the prison roof, no less) and sent them off on special missions. Prisoners outfitted the pigeons with small cell phone pouches (pigeon backpacks!) that were filled with cell phones (appropriately) or drugs by contacts on the outside.

Maybe the USPS could use this idea to improve delivery:-)

Yep, it's all true- knew someone in a county jail that was surrounded by crack smokers in the laundry room.
Drugs are smuggled in by the guards and other staff.
Guards are worse than the offenders, sometimes

Why waste time training a bird? It takes less time to flip a guard. I said gray is a dirty white in regards to TDCJ. Yes I know worked at one for a year and half
got out due to the BS and getting harrased by the other guards and rank looking the other way. Hard are hail on you when your an honest one.

As an officer with the BOP I have to disagree, yes, there are dirty staff out there, but they are few and far between. Inmate visitors "Suitcase" alot of contraband in during visitation that we do not detect. By suitcase I mean 'Sticking it in there butts".
