Submission + - Jail Mail May Fail (sdcitybeat.com)

loteck writes: A county jail department is quietly planning to dismantle an inmate email system, reports San Diego CityBeat:

Launched in 2007, the e-mail system allows users on the outside to send short messages to inmates via the Internet for free. Jail staff prints these messages and distributes them to the detainees, though the inmates cannot use the same system to respond.

The advisory group responsible for the system isn't required to notify the public of its meetings and no public comments are sought, according to the article.
