Facebook isn’t just for students anymore, it’s an equal opportunity social networking site. But Facebook for inmates? Whoodathunkit?!?!
It’s against prison rules, but several inmates within the Oklahoma corrections system are (or have been) active on the popular social network.
It was revealed over the weekend that nearly three dozen inmates have been disciplined since January 2012 for engaging with ‘friends’ online and it was also reported that at least three dozen more inmates are still online, but undetected by prison officials.
Typically, inmates who are caught lose their good-behavior credits, but that minor punishment pales in comparison to the online praise they receive for showing off their jailhouse physiques. Did you know that there are convicted murderers, armed robbers and even child molesters serving time in jail while ‘friending’ you online?
While you may know most of the people on your friends list personally, I’m sure there are a few who got in on the merits of being a friend of a friend. That being said, some of these dudes could be gawking at your vacation photos right now as I type or… since several inmates have been bold enough to post photos from inside jail cells, you could be gawking at them too.
Meet a few of your jailhouse facebook friends below…
Dante Kennybrew blows smoke in this photo posted on his Facebook page on Dec. 5. Kennybrew, 31, was convicted of robbery in 2007. He is serving a 12-year term in the Lawton Community Corrrections Center.
Convicted robber Darwin Hillmon posted this Facebook photo March 22. He goes by “Vill Side General” online. “WE STAY ON LOCKDOWN. PEOPLE PLEASE DONT COME 2 JAIL DIS … IS NOT COOL,” he wrote last year.
Drug offender Anthony W. Jacobs, 27 (above), flirted on Facebook with women who commented about his 2011 Facebook photo.
“Wat up mama u act as if u like wat u see,” drug offender Anthony Jacobs, 27, responded to one woman in August 2012, misspelling “what.”
“I cant wait to get to know you now you grown,” he wrote another woman in April 2012. “We gonna kick it for real. Well, hopefully.”
Jacobs was disciplined in July. He is serving a 10-year term at the R.B. Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy for pointing a pistol at a police officer in 2007.
He wrote about his living conditions at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester during a 5 a.m. rant on Facebook on July 2012, stating:
“Just done a year under ground in a cement cage and just got denied to leave and now i got to do a nother whole year down here next to death row cauSE i wont live with no one but blacks.”
“And now my lil bro is down here going threw the same” thing, he wrote, using an expletive. “Gone keep my head up cauSE every time i look down i SEe haters. Its just lonely being at the top by my SElf. They cant stop real ones!”
The “lil bro” is younger brother Cliffton Putman, 24 pictured below. In his Facebook photos, he is showing off a tattoo of a large handgun on his stomach.
Cliffton Putman wrote on Facebook that he had given his all to a relationship but got nothing back, so he was online looking for love.
“Is there any real weman out there any more cuz i cant find one,” he wrote, misspelling women.
Antwon Brown, 28, posted the photo below to his Facebook page on July 28th…
Brown, convicted of armed robbery in 2008, went by the name “Itzme Fbthaone Brown” on Facebook and is being held at the Davis Correctional Facility in Holdenville, a private prison (his page has since been deleted).
Antwon Brown wrote online in October 2012 that he was celebrating his birthday by smoking marijuana.
“Yeah today my birthday,” he wrote. “woke up blowing on the best stress free.”
Two women criticized Brown for that admission.
“DON’T LIKE THAT COMMENT,” one wrote the next morning. “THAT’S WHY YOU CAN’T GET YOUR MIND RIGHT YOU BIG DUMMY.”
A second woman simply wrote, “I agree.” 😆
Sex offender Logan Lee (above) was bold enough to use his real name on Facebook and in 2011, he declared online that he was single and counting down the days to his release.
“NO GIRL CAN SAY THEY ARE WITH ME, ENID PEOPLE. Getting out in 1,584 days or less — hopefully!!” he wrote on his Facebook page.
Lee, 22, is in prison for raping an 11-year-old. He was punished after his Facebook use was discovered last year.
Sulliman Gurry, 30, a drug offender and drunk driver, made this photo his Facebook profile picture on Nov. 20 while at Howard McLeod Correctional Center in Atoka, OK.
The violation was discovered in January when a prison official saw he was another inmate’s Facebook “friend.”
Burglar Joshua Owen, 25, was disciplined in February after his Facebook page was found on one of three cellphones hidden in the wall of a cell at Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown. The photo above, which was taken inside the facility was posted to his Facebook page last March.
I could go on and on and on posting photos that the inmates put online, but I’m sure you get the drift by now.
Are you surprised that inmates are ‘Facebooking’ while serving time?
