Inmates at state prisons should have tablet computers, said Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler.
Gansler, who is running for governor in 2014, told the Baltimore Sun access to tablets would help ex-offenders from returning to prison:

The gubernatorial hopeful says the wireless devices would replace brick-and-mortar libraries and classrooms in the state’s prison system, providing each inmate with an Android tablet that could connect with e-books, the state’s library system, law resources and online learning programs.
They would also allow limited — and monitored — email access, so inmates could connect with family members.
