Sure, but that’s still going to be the exception, and he wasn’t stored with any mob bosses. Prisoners are allowed to have unobserved face-to-face meetings with visitors, so if you want to pass out information, you can always do it that way. The mail thing just seems like a pointless insult.
My main concern with prisoners is rehabilitation, because I’d like a lower crime rate. If some drug kingpin is ‘running his business’ from inside the prison, put him in solitary, don’t let him talk to other prisoners, get court-ordered permission to read his mail. Don’t treat everyone there like, well, a criminal.
My wife’s cousin was in on driving for a suspended license, and came very close to getting the shit beaten out of him on a couple of occasions. I really don’t see how him sitting in jail for a month benefited anyone. I don’t think jail time— which cost him his job, and put him in a more marginal economic position— lowered his likelihood of taking risky, illegal chances like driving without a license, it increased it.
