Editor's Comment: Here's an idea that would put an end to this. Let's say there are a dozen inmates in a cell. The inmates are removed and the cell is searched. An illegal knife, drugs, and a contraband cell phone are found in the cell. The prison officials open up an administrative process, and each of the twelve prisoners are given 30 days (more) in prison, as a punishment for the illegal items. Conduct one inspection every month - and the message is "you will never get out of here, as long as we continue to find this contraband." Sooner or later out of sheer peer pressure, all of that stuff will go away. Right now there's no down side. You found my knife - so what? I'll just get another one. That needs to change. It might seem simple, but surveillance cameras will stop the "airplane" trick. Bust whoever is throwing the crap over the fence, and put them on the inside.
