Prisoners May Not Receive Printouts of Facebook Pages
American prisoners may not receive printouts of Facebook pages through mail, according to a sentence imposed by a judge in the state of Pennsylvania.
The 33-year-old inmate, Mark Nixon, filed a federal civil right lawsuit after the prison denied his access to printouts of Facebook pages sent through U.S. mail. The prison labeled his mail as “unacceptable correspondence” and threw it away. Nixon took this verdict as a violation of his right and free speech.
Prisoners have been struggling to get access to Facebook for years, but their requests have never been granted. One of the reasons is to prevent inmates from using Facebook to threaten enemies, taunt police, or even to friend officials.
Poor Nixon! Guess he will have to wait until September 2013 in order to read his friend’s status updates.
