Somebody call Hollywood. There’s a movie here:
The inspector general’s report found that [Ohio’s Marion Correctional Institute] inmates “took two computers that should have been disassembled, placed hard drives into the computers, installed a network card, transported the computers across the institution for approximately 1,100 feet, through the security check point without being searched or challenged by staff, accessed an elevator to the third floor and placed the two computers in the ceiling of the P3 training room.” The report added that “they also ran wire, cable, and power cords to connect the devices undetected onto the ODRC (Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction) network.”
Via Glenn Reynolds. Note that I do not approve: the inmates were using the computers to commit more crimes. I would, however, suggest that somebody look into whether the inmates who did this might be amenable to rehabilitation. They’ve demonstrated that they have a fairly useful skill set, after all.
