Jose Francisco Leite, head of the state of Bahia's Prison Affairs Department, said the "posh prison life" Genilson Lins da Silva led came to an abrupt end on Monday when police raided his cell as part of a statewide crackdown on drug trafficking.

Leite said Tuesday authorities have ordered an investigation to find out how Silva got the money and guns into his cell.

I heard it was only a 42" plasma. Cuz that's what you get when you're a criminal. Don't like it? Tough luck.

I can't imagine Brazilian Prison guards making enough money to buy Plasma TVs for themselves. He must've paid them off well. (Buy me one, and get yourselves one....each).

I am sure this inmate is going to put out a hit on the warden. Mexico is even worst, there are cops killed everyday by the border. I guess the druglords dont like them trying to stop there business.

Another shoddy slanted report. That so-called luxurious prison cell had a plasma that wasnt 1080P. So you see, that guy was suffering, paying his dues big time.
