If a felon can learn programming, security, and hack your system while incarcerated I'd like to meet him/her.

This is the greatest thing I have ever heard today. They should definitely put a bit more focus into improving their security rather than encroaching on a felon's ability to learn.

 

Definitely security is a huge deal nowadays in prisons, as they are becoming more automated. I just don't see how a prison can put themselves in a vulnerable situation because someone is trying to better themselves, and trying to become part of society when released. Coding alone it really isn't that malicious to a network tbh. (I got some experience in cisco switches)

As it stands prisons is just a big round circle, people get out to do the same things.
