    ACLU wants porn to be allowed for South Carolina inmates

    MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (KABC) -- The American Civil Liberties Union is pushing for porn at a detention center in Moncks Corner, South Carolina.

    The move came after reports surfaced that the facility only allowed inmates to read the Bible. But prison officials said that isn't true and inmates have a wide variety of reading material at their disposal.

    Anyone think this is a good idea? Or what the ACLU should be wasting their time on?

    Some people might call this pandering to the inmates, giving them liberties they don't deserve. But within the prison system, things like this can be used as incentives for good behavior. Plus it might help cut down on violence & homosexual stuff.

    I'm kind of surprised it's not allowed, actually. It's legal reading material...it's not child porn, I assume. But garden variety porn? Why not?

    As long as the prison system isn't paying for the porn, sure, why not. Doesn't bother me. And I don't really believe that porn leads people to be more likely to commit violence or sexual assault. They really need some legitimate studies to support those claims.

    No, it would be a very bad idea. Not really complex...

    Do you have any specific reasons for believing that?

    I don't really have an issue with porn in jails. I don't think the jails should specifically be PROVIDING it, but if the inmate gets it through legal means (I honestly don't know if you can bring books in for inmates to read or something) then I see no real issue with it.

    Just have Redbox install a specially furnished unit in the prisoner lounge.
