Default Stop prison extortion

I am looking for anyone interested in forming a group to stop the extortion of prison inmates and their families. Please contact me if you are interested.

It is something that is inevitably going to occur, just as we are seeing predators engaging in looting in Houston, some of whom went across town to victimize persons and businesses (fortunately, they are being held without bail in many cases after arrest).

As to families, DON'T PAY IT. If you don't pay, they move elsewhere.

Those in custody who make the decision not to name names are ALSO part of the problem. A unit cannot properly investigate when someone won't say WHO is hogging them...

Do you mean legal extortion such as expensive phone calls and charges to add money or do you mean the illegal extortion the con artists inmates do?

I think if anyone feeds into extortion then they can just deal with it alone, not my problem. But if it's the system extorting then any idea's are welcome.
