    Hi,

    i´ve read this in an online article. And that many states pay more for prisons then for universities. What do you think about that?

    Hi Mr. Sauerkraut:

    The Clinton/Bush/Obama Administrations let 20 Million Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals run around loose everywhere stealing JOBS from Americans, then the judge throws them in jail for not paying child support (story). The judges know full well that Americans are losing JOBS to Illegal Aliens, NAFTA offshoring of the manufacturing base, 23 Guest Worker Programs and Job Outsourcing Overseas, but they throw Americans into their Debtor Prisons anyway ...

    GL,

    Maybe 1% of all Americans shouldn't be committing crimes.

    I think those 1% shouldn't commit crimes and should go to school instead.

    1. there are no debtors' prisons in this country.
    2. if someone goes to jail for non-payment of child support, it is for contempt -- violation of court orders... not the financial debt. and there are a million things that occur before someone goes to jail -- like their pay being garnished. so perhaps you might want to provide some proof of your assertion and the numbers of "americans being thrown into debtors prison... which is, obviously, a lie.. (see 1 above).
    3. tell the 1% folk not to commit crimes.

    Lets ban all jails and prisons. Hell we don't need no stinking laws, let every criminal free.

    Sorry to break it to you but the Government exists to protect us from each other more then it exists to provide colleges.
