Selfies, Social Media and Prison No-Nos

making moneyIn today’s dog eat dog world you have to admire those that take the initiative and start their own business.  But when you are a prisoner in a federal prison in Kentucky, being an entrepreneur isn’t something that is looked upon favorably.  That is the topic of today’s bail bond blog post.

This past week in a Christian County, Kentucky prison, a couple of entrepreneurial inmates were busted for starting a cell phone business.  They weren’t actually selling cell phones, but rather selling time on the one cell phone that they had.  They would charge other inmates to take their “selfie” (I guess it is not really a selfie if someone else takes it…anyway) and then post the picture on various social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, etc.  As soon as prison officials found out about the upstart photography studio the two men were operating, they quickly shut the operation down.  Before that happened the inmates were able to take one last selfie of them holding their first dollar…or shall we say their first thousand dollars.  Read the original story below.
