Prison Visits From The Comfort of Your Own Home

Are you tired of dressing up, getting the kids ready, and driving several hours just to spend an hour or so chatting with your spouse using a grubby telephone from behind thick body-fluid-stained glass? Sure, the surroundings are pleasant—metal chairs bolted to the wall, all the roaches you’ve ever wanted to see, and orange jumpsuits for everyone. Oh, and the company is simply to die for, literally.

Now there’s a product that allows you to visit your incarcerated loved ones from the privacy of your own home. iWebvisit has created an online video conferencing system that, if approved by the corrections facility, works with all PC and Mac computers. No, it’s not the same thing as a contact visit, but it sure helps relieve the stress that’s associated with visiting a prison inmate.

Just think, no more standing in line with Charles Manson’s relatives. No more guards pawing through your purse touching things that should only be fondled by your own tender fingers. No more metal detectors, handing over your car keys, strip searches, dogs sniffing your body, officers watching your every move, or carrying change for the vending machines in little clear, plastic pouches. And, finally, there’s an end to meeting your spouses “friends” from cell block C.

So sign up today and visit the loved one of your choice.

*Sorry for the brief post today, but we’re experiencing internet troubles here in the Georgia swampland we’re calling home, for now. I think something may have damaged the connection outside. Wonder what it could be?
