      Bloomington, IN

A person in prison for violent crimes or who is a sex offender should not be allowed the privilege of using FB or cell phones to stay in touch with family and friends. Being able to make calls or interact on social media websites that aren't monitored by prison officials could allow inmates to engage in crime could be dangerous to other people who might be intimidated or offended to have to see them online. They are supposed to be in prison being punished with limited and monitered interaction with the outside world. When violent offenders have access to phones, and internet the consequences could be life or death.

      A murderer/ sex offender should not have access to facebook or cell phones. Its too easy for them to use them to harass victims or family members of victims.

      This person took away the life of a beautiful young woman and mother through a hideously violent murder of which he was justly convicted. His communication with the outside population should be severely limited, even electronically. Those rights were forfeited.

      I am signing this in for Michelle Dieterle who died at the hands of her estranged husband, Ryan Dieterle who was found to have a facebook page which he posted to from a phone. We, her family and friends, worked on our own to have it removed, but how many others have these pages that no one knows about?

      People are supposed to be in prison to pay for what they did, and they shouldn't be allowed to be on facebook where they can contact anyone or conduct unlawful business. A child molester can even contact children. This should be changed to protect people from them. They are, afterall, in prison for a reason.

      I am signing this petition because my beautiful young cousin that was the mother of 2 beautiful little girls, was brutally murdered as a result of domestic violence. Her murderer is in prison and I do not think prisoners should be allowed to have social media privilege with the outside world. I think our justice system has forgot what "being in prision" is suppsse to mean anymore.

      When you lose a loved one you do not get to be in contact with them.so why should a person who killed them get to stay in contact with their loved ones?
