First the college kids are music pirates and now it’s the prison inmates

By April 22, 2004music

A privately run rural jail in Louisiana has an interesting prison work program: illegally copying music CDs. According to the story,

“the list of CDs for sale at the jail offered CDs and tapes for $3 each, with genres including soul, blues, rap, country, new age, heavy metal and jazz. Hundreds of CDs were available by artists including 50 Cent, John Tesh, R. Kelly, Conway Twitty, Marvin Gaye, Nirvana, Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Rolling Stones.

Okay, I have one question. John Tesh? That’s the kind of music they listen to in prison? Now there’s a crime that should be investigated more thoroughly.
