    Unhappy Cell Phone Found Under Mattress in Charles Manson's Cell

    http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news...rison-mattress

    Link tells that officials found a cell phone under Charles Manson's mattress... He had made phone calls to people in several states... The article goes on to say that it is becoming so widespread for prisoners to obtain & use cell phones that officials are having a horrible time enforcing laws to prevent it...

    You know an easy solution to this is to install a scrambler to where no cell phone reception can be obtained in the cell block area.

    LOL Far too logical Lera..It seems to be Jails and their employee/s are far too lax when it comes to security..The unfortunate thing that looms is that many of these prisons are privately owned and operated..so work under different rules..Farming out Incarcerations to privately owner opporated sites kinda makes me wonder ??? I certainly cant claim Charlie's prison is privately run..but this example is just a symptom of what the "problems" are!!!!!! ..Charlie is certainly old, and not so sure his mission is still viable in todays world..but for crying out loud..Guards, and officials need to answer for things like this!!

    Man oh man..Manson and his cell phone is "Just a Symptom" far more issues..COurse its just my opinion....but Geesh!!

    Authorities have urged the Federal Communications Commission to grant them authority to jam cell phone signals at prisons, but telecommunications lobbyists have told the agency that jamming would also block non-inmates near prisons from making calls.
    ---
    President Obama signed into law during the summer a bill making smuggling cell phones into federal prisons a crime, but that law doesn't apply to state prisons, the Times reported. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill in September that would have fined people providing cell phones to prisoners $5,000, the Times reported.

    I hear you!

    I like the way the Philippines had one prison in Angles City...It was a big fence area, actually 2 fences with a few feet apart, barbwires like crazy on the top. No dwellings, all prisoners thrown in and if they wanted to eat, family members had to throw food over the fence. Now that is a PRISON!

    THis is such BS because you can set the jamming to certain ranges so those cell phones used for official biz would be outside the cell block area. *rolls eyes*

    Never mind the cell phone. Why is this "man" still breathing? Way past his time.

    I may be out of date on one or two details here, but I think this is basically true info:

    At least two of Manson's original "family" still support him. One, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, is in prison for pointing a gun at Pres. Ford in Sacramento, and also for an escape, I believe, which she did because she'd heard (erroneously) that Manson was dying of cancer. Her buddy in Sacto was Sandra Good. As far as I know, she's still hanging around on P St, or one of those alphabet streets there in the Capital. The two of them used to wear orangish robes with hoods. I don't know if Sandra still is or not.

    Absolutely, Charlie would call Sandy. There may be others from the 60s group who would still be in contact, too. I can't think of who that would be, though--most family members moved on in one way or another.

    Then, there are several websites devoted to Manson. As far as I've seen, these are run by young men, young women, and young couples who, I figure, are in that age span where later you can't believe that was how you were living. They are devoted to Manson and I'm sure correspond with him regularly. There may be more of these nouveau Mansonites than I'm aware of.

    Charlie could also be in touch with old legal contacts, for example people who have worked for his lawyers; and with other convicts, and even guards and parole officers, he has known.

    It could be media he contacted, he is always a get for media to interview him. I can see how they would sneak in a phone to him via some other criminal, or even a guard paid to do it.

    He could have been talking to the Squeakster - Lynette Fromme was released on parole in 2009 and is said to have moved to Marcy NY.

    People do not sneak cell phones into the prisons. Guards buy them and sell them to the prisoners. Then they catch them take the cells away, send prisoner to isolation. Prisoner gets out, Guard sells them another phone and soit continues... It's all a money making scheme for the guards. Not all are involved but some are.
