Each country should show the rules for the use of jammers

Mobile phone jammers are illegal in the United States. Even federal prisons do not allow the use of prohibited cell phones to stop criminals ’calls, so jammers should be legalized by other countries.

The problem is huge. In California alone, the authorities kept records of cell phones confiscated since 2007. In the first year, the guards discovered about 1,400 cell phones in prison cells. In 2009, the number of discoveries increased to nearly 7,000. In 2010, prison officials discovered a record 10,761 mobile phones in Californian detainees ’cells.

Mobile phones allow criminals to continue to break the law even in prison. The gang can order a hit. Gang members can receive “instructions” to carry out revenge attacks on hostile gangs in prison, and vice versa. Drug dealers can arrange transactions. The murderer can mock and intimidate the victim’s family. Blackmailers can blackmail. Blackmailers can blackmail. Criminals waiting for a crime can intimidate witnesses to intervene in justice.

I do n’t think anyone would have imagined that prisons are “reshaping” prisoners. Their main function is to take criminals out of the street to protect the public. However, the mobile phone-coupled with the prohibition of cell phone jammers-can be said that the crook returned to the street.

Faced with this crisis, what is the federal government doing? Recently, they launched a new campaign to combat cell phone interference. all the best. But why should we take so many measures to prevent the misuse of the jammer and the beneficial use of the jammer without action?

A few years ago, I wrote an article on this topic in this field. In this column, I just raised this question and asked for advice. At that time, a bill in Congress called the Prison Communications Security Act of 2009 would allow the governor or the head of the Federal Prison Administration to request the Federal Communications Commission to allow the use of portable jammer. In prison.

I actually think the bill will be passed. The measure was passed in the Senate, but it was never passed in the House of Representatives, so it was never passed. The House of Representatives completely abolished the duty of protecting the public from criminals. This is what happened in the past two years: Charles Manson was surprised by two phones within two years.

Aryan Brotherhood, a member of the racist hate gang, was sentenced for murdering the Oklahoma Sheriff. He posted photos of himself and his compatriots on Facebook using contraband BlackBerry. In some of the photos, he seems to be taking drugs, drinking alcohol, wielding weapons, and having a good time in the cell. (Click the link to view the picture.)

Last year, a New Jersey criminal was convicted of assassinating his ex-girlfriend. The woman was a witness in a case against him, and while awaiting trial, he threatened her to go to prison to change her testimony, and she did just that. The prisoner then planned her murder, possibly to prevent her from telling the truth about the crime and “witness manipulation” in the future.

Last year, a member of the Philadelphia gang pleaded guilty, ordered retaliatory murder and theft, and purchased a pistol for the crime, all of which were detained. Using a mobile phone behind the bars, a New Jersey prison official claimed to have interfered with mobile phone equipment in the prison. Her request was ignored.

Legal interference work, many countries allow mobile phones to provide limited interference, including France, India, Mexico, New Zealand, etc. Almost all of these countries allow mobile phones to interfere with prisons. Some are allowed in schools and even theaters. Many banned countries are currently considering using jammers in prisons.

Although the use of cell phone jammers by individuals and local companies is still controversial, the wisdom around jamming cell phones in prisons is forming a global consensus. Although other countries are increasingly allowing prison authorities to block calls, the United States lags behind in protecting citizens from detainees.

The Communication Law of 1934 is the law that created the FCC. It is an old law that prevents telephone interference to protect the public from criminals and terrorists. It also protects the public’s right to communicate in the air, free from interference by anyone or even the government.

When Congress enacted the law and signed it by President Franklin Roosevelt, they were considering using radios and telephones. They certainly did not intend to allow convicted criminals to commit crimes from their prison cells. It’s time to end the ban and let the jail stop the cell phone.
