U.S. Prisons Play Pirated Movies to Inmates

In 2010 Richard Humphrey was sentenced to 29 months in prison for operating several pirate sites, including the popular USAWarez.com and USATorrents.com.

Earlier this year Humphrey, who is a well-known and controversial figure in the warez community in various roles, went back to jail after he violated his probation of an unrelated offense. This time he was sent to Lorain Correctional Institution in Ohio, where he was surprised to see that pirated copies of “Ride Along” and “Wolf of Wall Street” were being played for inmates.

According to Humphrey the movies were shown while they were still playing in theaters and had clear earmarks of being pirated copies. Baffled by this apparent display of deviant behavior by prison staff, Humphrey notified the Deputy Warden and the Warden about his complaint.

1. Stockholm syndrome?

Humphrey must be as mad as hell, yet powerless.

Prisons must be filled though, isn't that what we're told? Isn't that where our increasingly insane legislators are taking us?

2. This isinfuriating! Most prisons are private for profit ventures owned by corporations. There

should be charges filed and restitution payed to the film companies.

There should only be one set of laws. Not one for the rich and one for the middle class and poor.

4. I'm kind of surprised that they screened "The Wolf of Wall St." in a prison.

(I never heard of the other one).

Nudity, sex, drug use, glorifies criminal behavior.

I always thought they had rules about allowing convicts to watch certain content.

Making a stink about it?

Yeah, that's going to make him real popular with his cell mates.
