Nash Correctional Institute Complaint - Over priced collect calls from Nash Correctional Institute
I think that the price of a collect call from the Nash Correctional Institute costing me $15.00 for a ten minute call is a violation of the anti-trust fair trade practices. While I can have all kinds of phone plans with all kinds of perks such as FREE LONG DISTANCE after 7 p.m. inmates must call collect. There are cheaper systems that monitor phone calls and phone cards can be purchased in other comminsaries at other prisons why not in North Carolina? I believe it has to do with money and the cash cow that North Carolina has in play at the expense of the family and friends of the inmates who must pay the over-priced cost. I think it is not fair and I also think it falls under INTERSTATE COMMERCE and should be regulated by the laws that insure fair trade practices and do not cater to greedy money grabbing pirates who are running things over there in North Carolina and are making a mint. Also that D.A. --Nifong who stepped down should have never had that job in the first place. He is not the only D.A. to use tactics that are questionalbe if not down right illegal. The Judicial System as well as the Prison System in the State of North Carolina needs to be investigated by the Federal Government and I have contacted my congressman from the state of Tennessee on more than one occassion and stated just that. I will continue to speak out over this injustice because it is still the ole US of A where I have Freedom of Speech and I intend to use. Telling anyone in a place of authority for the State of North Carolina is like reporting that chickens are missing to the Fox that is guarding the hen house. The prices charged for phone calls from the Nash Correctional Institute are a violation of my rights.
