"Prisons try to stop drones from delivering drugs, porn and cellphones to inmates"

Prison inmates, a remarkably ingenious bunch, are disrupting long-standing methods of smuggling drugs, porn and cellphones the same way online retailers hope to one day deliver socks and underwear to American homes — through the air, with drones. 

By coordinating with wingmen on the outside for shipments of contraband, inmates can bypass the need to bribe corrupt guards or persuade family members to hide forbidden items in body cavities.

Though nobody is precisely sure just how many drones are landing every day in prisons, the threat is global. Last year, there was a melee at an Ohio prison after a drone dropped heroin into the exercise yard. In April, security cameras at a London prison recorded a drone delivering drugs directly to an inmate’s window.

Inbound leg delivers drugs. Outbound carrying ballots. Pilots in DNC headquarters.

Media blames unfair treatment by prison guards.

I think they spent more time on this than on the Wikileaks's revelations.
