Default Atlanta jail inmate busted for asking for a gang hit on Officer.

One lame idea to many for this jail bird.



An Atlanta jail intercepted a letter from an inmate who was using a secret code to orchestrate a murder

Mark Abadi, Business Insider... February 5, 2018

Inmates at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta go to extreme lengths to coordinate crimes with people on the outside.
Last year, jail staff intercepted a letter written in secret code orchestrating the murder of a staff member.
The jail provided Business Insider with a copy of the decoded letter.



At Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia, guards are under the constant threat of violence both inside the jail and outside.

Inmates have been known to coordinate crimes with people outside the jail through a variety of methods, including illegally obtained cell phones and written correspondences containing elaborate codes.

Last year, that practice was taken to the extreme, and nearly resulted in deadly consequences.

Chief jailer Col. Mark Adger told Business Insider that in September 2017, the jail intercepted a letter from an inmate that looked innocuous at first glance, but was actually encrypted with secret instructions for the recipient to murder a staff member at the jail.

The incident took place after the filming of "60 Days In," an A&E documentary series that takes place at the jail. Adger provided Business Insider with a copy of the original letter.

"If you read the letter and didn't know it was encrypted, you would think it was a standard, regular, 'how you doin,' 'my day is fine' kind of letter," Adger told Business Insider.

The inmate who sent the letter, whose name has been redacted, was in Fulton County Jail on charges that included murder, armed robbery, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Because of the inmate's known affiliations to an organized gang 20% of the jail's roughly 2,500 inmates are in gangs Adger thought the letter deserved a closer look.
