    How did the drug sellers gain entry into “maximum security” prison? Where were the guards if they are not part of the transaction?
    Taking the suspects to court is a long process. Since prison yard is their shop, they should have been locked in there to ply their trade until their sentence is pronounced and served. Mchweeeew!
