Inmates Hacked Their Prison Tablets

Why in the hell did they have tablets with internet access in the first place? I thought this was prison?

Idaho prison officials announced yesterday in a press release that they've identified 364 inmates who have exploited a vulnerability in their prison-issued tablets and have used it to assign nearly $225,000 worth of digital credits to their tablet accounts. Inmates used these digital credits to buy access to music and games that they could play on the tablets.
