Da Jail Life

A source familiar with the Bordeaux jail in Montreal, Que., Canada, said that inmates smuggle in cell phones faster than the guards can confiscate them. That may be how inmate Michael Simoneau-Meunier was able to post something online: a picture of himself in his cell, bottle of cognac in one hand and cigar in the other, with the caption, “Xo and blunt living da jail life.” Simoneau-Meunier and other inmates posted photos of themselves showing off their physiques, and exchanged messages with commenters. “At least it’s good times here,” Simoneau-Meunier posted. Officials refused to comment on the photos, stating that the jail has “zero tolerance” for alcohol, drugs, tobacco or cell phones. (MS/QMI) ...And that zero tolerance policy works just as well as other zero tolerance policies.
