lockedin – a networking site for the penal system

A friend of mine was telling me of his recent 12-hour incarceration at one of our local jails. Apparently, his cellmates spent quite a bit of time talking about their travels in and around the Wisconsin penal system.

This got me to thinking, wouldn’t it be helpful if there was a social networking site dedicated to our nation’s penal system.

Based on LinkedIn, LockedIn would provide prison guards, wardens, judges, police officers and convicted criminals with a way to stay connected to the system.

If you were an inmate, and you had a good network, you could help new felons by telling them which judges are more lenient than others, or which prisons have the best food. You could network with prison guards and get a leg up on getting that good laundry room job. Or just get some conjugal visit tips.

A tool like this would allow everyone involved in the system to get the most out of their penal experience. Look how big LinkedIn has become. Given the size of this country’s prison system, I think LockedIn could be a huge site.
