(Anderson) Herald Bulletin
Nearly 300 federal agents recently spread out across Indiana to stop a statewide drug operation involving prison inmates and resulting in the arrest of 40 people.
A common response was heard from the public: Do we need to invest that much time, money and FBI manpower to cut down on drug trafficking inside prisons? Is this such a huge problem that it couldn’t be stopped with more efficient monitoring by prison officials?
This drug operation goes to the heart of what we’re paying prison guards and administrators to prevent — the continuation of illegal activities by criminals in prison.
