Sheriff probes how inmates made rap music video inside jail

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — An Atlanta-area sheriff is investigating how inmates inside one of the state’s largest jails were able to produce a rap music video.

DeKalb County Sheriff Jeffrey Man tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/1Hg5pq5) that the inmates recorded the video from the jail’s video visitation system. The station reports that the video, “Thuggin’ Live from DeKalb Jail,” was later posted on YouTube.

The 2 minute and 27-second video shows the inmates dancing to the song, as one of them sprays a liquid toward the camera and another takes off his shirt.

Mann said the inmates will be disciplined and prohibited from using the video visitation system, which allows callers to see one another without having to be in the jail.

Mann said his office is reviewing the system to minimize future breaches.
