    Can someone get me one of those tablets? Those things are expensive, and I can’t afford one, but I hear they are nice.

    • Mike M

      Just go to jail. The Liberals at GTL will give you one. Cuz. . . “social justice.”

      • john

        their CEO is a republican though according to his FEC donations

        • Why do you bother?

          Mike’s a one-trick pony. Ignore him.

          • Mike M

            WDYB’s one trick is to say that Mike is a one-trick pony?

        • Mike M

          Actually GTL is making money off the inmates. But Liberals want criminals more comfortable.

          • mike m

            Republicans run the corporation but it is somehow the doing of liberals? Why do you bother seems to have a point

          • Mike M

            These clever Repubs are making money off Liberals policies. Clever.

  • Greg

    Why on earth would an inmate be given a “secure” tablet?

    • vdiv

      Because they can’t hop off to Best Buy or order one on Amazon?
