Take a look at this short Thursday article from the Chicago Sun-Times:
When I was on the Illinois House Prison Reform Committee, I asked every warden why he couldn’t keep drugs out of his prison.
“My constituents don’t understand why you can’t keep drugs out of a prison where you control all the access,” I would point out.
I never got a good answer.
And now, a Cook County Judge has given probation to a Cook County Jail guard for trying to smuggle marijuana into the complex.
With no jail time, you can probably figure out why the reward might outweigh the penalty for prison guards.
