Real Women Drink Akvavit: Prison has been my retirement plan for a long time. People think I'm joking but when I first heard of an old dude in a wheelchair robbing a bank then waiting patiently outside for the police because he couldn't afford his medications and his housing, I thought "better than dying like a dog in the streets".Godscrack: That's what the state wants. Make essential living needs easier to get in jail. They need bodies for their prisons to make more money.More and more people who don't want to be homeless, are doing it.Some of our homeless people here turn themselves in on bench warrants for petty things when the weather turns bad. I saw one of them after he had told me his plan not two days later. The jail was so overcrowded that they decided someone with over a dozen tickets for hopping the light rail didn't need to go into the jail after all. He looked like he was going to cry.
Tenga: tricycleracer: Tenga: My brother just got released one year early because he was diagnosed with cancer.They actually told him he has to come back and finish his sentence if he gets cured.He won't have to go back.Crime spree time.He can barely get around on crutches due to the large bone tumor in his leg. Besides, they found out that his body is riddled with them, so he's basically just riding it out.
AverageAmericanGuy: The current Obamacare system is a travesty and does little to alleviate the actual burden on those who need it most.
