Strange: New America's Websites Where Prisoners Lets You Date Them
A new website called Meet-An-Inmate.com hopes to bridge the gap between criminals behind bars and the outside world and the site has received close to 10 million visitors.
Meet-An-Inmate.com lists hundreds of photo personals of inmates looking to share intimate letters with just the right stranger.
The site says that many prisoners are 'fun' and 'loving' like everyone else... they've just committed felonies.
On the site, prisoners pay to list a 250 word personal ad to attract a pen-pal.
'These inmates have nothing but time on their hands and can't wait to hear from you,' the site reads.
Is this really appropriate?
