But last year he was sentenced to an additional four and a half years for smuggling in heroin and a prescription narcotic while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Pennsylvania.

I would really like to know how they managed to move the building from Park Row in downtown Manhattan all the way to Pennsylvania, along with the Municipal Building behind it. That's some amazing engineering feat!

During a 2010 bail hearing, Cameron's psychiatrist inadvertently revealed that his client had snitched to the police about his drug suppliers

I certainly hope that psychiatrist no longer is one.

FTFA: "'He broke his femur,"

See, here's where the passive voice is handy, folks. I would say he had nothing to do with breaking his own femur. I do believe that would be his fellow inmates beating the shiat out of him that broke his femur.

I'm against jailing people for using dope, but I'm even more against people getting special consideration in jail for being "the son of actor Michael Douglas". There are plenty of snitches from the ghetto that have just as much to offer society as "the son of actor Michael Douglas", and their abuse in prison may be worse than that suffered by "the son of actor Michael Douglas", but they rate a news article because they aren't "the son of actor Michael Douglas".

In brief, screw "the son of actor Michael Douglas".

The Larch: Yeah, prisoners smuggling drugs into the prison are basically stealing money from the guards. The guards do not like that one bit.

Hahaha! Also very true! Here in Pittsburgh, they just had to replace pretty much 50% of the COs at the Allegheny County Jail because they discovered that so many of them were smuggling contraband into the prison. The way visiting or booking is set up down there, it's pretty much impossible for family members or inmates themselves to bring stuff where the hell did they think it was all coming from, anyway? My grandfather has always said that it's easier to score and get drugs INSIDE jail than it is on the outside, albeit for a much more inflated rate.

seapig: JackieRabbit: Incarceration for drug offenses works so well in preventing drug offenses....

Well, if it was sarcasm, it still doesn't make what you said untrue. Addiction isn't a criminal matter; it really is a medical issue, so filling up prisons with drug offenders isn't really doing anyone any good. 99% of those guys are just gonna get high again as soon as they are released. If they want to prevent people from using drugs or committing crimes in the pursuit of acquiring drugs, they need to address the underlying issues that cause people to use in the first place, and prison isn't the place to do it. They are basically adult day care centers; they don't have any programs that really do the convicts any good. And I speak from experience; I've had plenty of family members in jail and a fiance who's there right now and instead of utilizing the man power and trying to rehabilitate or do something to change the way these guys think or behave, they just keep them locked in a cage with nothing to do all day.

I've always been in favor of allowing certain criminals to serve out their sentence in the military instead of in a jail cell because at least the military can whip them into shape and give them a career and way to make money LEGITIMATELY. Obviously not violent offenders, but those who are in for dealing drugs or possession or whatever...doesn't that seem like a much more viable option for them? Instead of sending over kids and people who actually DO have something to lose, we can send people who genuinely NEED the kind of instruction and structure that a military career can provide and it actually WILL address some of the issues that lead to said convict using drugs or selling drugs in the first place.

But yeah...prison isn't the place for drug offenders. They need some sort of rehabilitation program, counseling, psychiatric help, etc. because if you don't address the issues that cause people to use in the first place, then they're just gonna continue to use whe ...

Prison isn't the place for most anyone. Like you, I know quite a few people who have spent time there, and I've never seen it do a bit of good. Even if it's "keeping them off the streets" they tend to come back out worse than they were before. The worst is seeing people incarcerated over marijuana who end up in bloody gangs.
