Message:In light of a recent Detroit Free Press article regarding the ban on pornography in Macomb County Jail, as well as other county jails, I am writing to urge the Michigan Department of Corrections to follow their lead and ban all forms of pornography from Michigan prison facilities. While it is a step in the right direction for the Department of Corrections to ban video porn, all forms of pornography have a destructive impact– including the printed materials you currently allow access to by prisoners. Pornography has contributed to immense damage and harm to countless innocent victims. With what you have seen in your position, I am sure you can attest to this fact. Perpetrators of sexual abuse, rape, sex trafficking, child molestation are often linked to the use of obscenity and pornography. With indisputable documentation of the escalating use of pornography by sexual predators, it is only commonsense to keep all such material out of the hands of prisoners. Thank you for the steps you have taken, however I urge you to ban all pornography from your facilities and in so doing aid in the protection of the citizens you have pledged to safeguard.
