A New Synonym for Evil: Securus

The company provides what is known as "Prison Skype": Expensive video chats with prisoners. A side effect is that those fuckers require jails and prisons which use their system to ban face-to-face contact between prisoners and their loved ones.

I don't think I really need to get into discussing that it will be ultimately destructive for both prisoners and their families to have their visits reduced to a version of Max Headroom.

But really, if your business model is based on exploiting people who have no other alternative to using your service, you've probably got a fire-blasted soul and a shriveled conscience to start with.

It's not the prisoners whoa re paying those outlandish costs. It's their families.

But I realize that little distinctions such as that make no difference to some folk.
