Making Life Easier for Prisoners

Convicts in Juárez will now be able to communicate with family members who live elsewhere in Chihuahua through IM programs set up at the state prison. Beyond the novelty, this seems like a good idea (although it also seems like something that could potentially be abused). The inhumane conditions in Mexico's prisons earn press periodically, and they help fuel the increasingly common outbreaks of violence.
