One of the open secrets of the U.S. prison system has long been the extent to which criminal activity continues to take place within prison walls. Inmates who were convicted of serious crimes are often not able to leave their wayward ways behind. Those who are locked up in the nation’s prisons oftentimes continue their criminal activity while behind bars. The fact that most of these crimes tend to be of a more benign variety, such as the smuggling of food items into prison cells or the running of illegal gambling casinos, does not detract from the point that ongoing criminal activity can and does pose a threat to the institution in which is taking place.
