Internet trolling by sexual predators must be outlawed!

We should not have to drum up pations! They are incarcerated prisioners. Why do they even have the internet in prison! They can’t cell phones, why do they have computers period! Take all that stuff from them. They have revision with local channels and if they want to communicate with friends and family, pens, paper and envlopes can get the job done as well as the internet, just slower. I wish they would stop giving prisioners privileges some law abiding working people can’t afford to have.
