I thought they were kidding when they said that prison is getting comfier and comfier, but I guess not. Instead of reflecting on how they shouldn’t have committed murder, inmates may now spend their time messing about on a tablet instead. You are still screwed if you drop the soap, but I guess you can clear your mind of that with some mobile games.

Indiana is looking to help offenders who are behind bars. Soon, each inmate in the Hoosier state could have their own tablet. The Indiana Department of Correction says the tablet will help inmates stay connected with their families and improve their education. Offenders will be able to use the tablets to access any classwork, self-help materials or entertainment. Officials expect to use entertainment, like music or movies, to reward good behavior.
