"You have just gone from $11,000 a
year to 70 cents a day," one prison
officially reportedly told him.
The disciplinary action was taken
because Ellison was found to have $25.00
on his person; inmates are only permitted
$15,00 per week in spending money.
The second infraction brought against
him was the making of an "unauthorized
purchase" from a mens clothing store.
Prisoners are required to have permission
before buying any items. According to a
friend of Ellison, he had been granted >

of his grandmother, and he charged some

Have you noticed how a person's right to privacy has
almost vanished in this day and age? We are no longer
safe from intruders reading our mail, tapping or
listening to our telephone calls or coming into our
TVlic imiorinn /\f V- ? r '*
i IH3 iii*aaiun piivacy irn^ j^une so rar tnat we now
have to be careful about what we throw out in the trash.
We usually think that the only invasion of privacy is
being done by the government, but this is not alwasys
the case. We invade each other's privacy almost daily,
so that it has almost become common place.
A spouse opening and reading another spouse's mail
thinks nothing of it until he or she is confronted with it.
Having a marriage license doesn't give anyone a ri^ht
to open someone's mail. That same spouse would be
horrified if the mail was opened by an intruder.
A mother reading a daughter's diary would be very
angry if the situations were reversed and the daughter
eaves dropped on her telephone conversations or
interrupted when she had visitors. A person should be
given his right to privacy no matter what age he is.
The problem of invasion of privacy is not limited to
the home. Many businesses use spy pratices to keep an
eye on their competition as well as use illegal means to
find out information.
Also there are . employers that think nothing of
picking up and reading papers on a secretary's desk or
going through her desk. If the situation were reversed
the secretary would probably be fired for doing
likewise. The secretary or any employee has just as
much right to her privacy as the boss.
It's ironic how we all scream bloody murder when we
read or hear about the FBI tapping citizen's phones or
intercepting a citizen's mail, but we continue to go
through our daily lives doing the same thing.
As long as we have no regards for other people's
right to privacy, we can not expect to receive it
