NJ is a hard place to live, but it's not a bad place to live, if that makes sense.

This is way too sensible, I'm sure the feds will shut down the program immediately. The only way to protect America is to insure that nonviolent victimless crimes are punished with jail time and crippling fines.

Exactly.  The risk is worth the reward, especially in the fall driving down 18 south and looking at the leaves changing colors.

That's the thing, though - New Jersey is basically saying "it's too expensive to send cops or a bounty hunter to drag your ass back here - we did the math, and agreed that it's cheaper to cut a deal with you. If you're willing to deal, we're willing to deal!"

Best justice money can buy. The poor are still going to get probation or jail time, and the rich are going to walk away.

"Yeah, due to recent incidents, we have a lot of police officers... umm... on paid administrative live. If you could just turn yourself in... y'know, just arrest yourself... we'd find that awfully convenient."

New Jersey, subby?  Sure you're not thinking of the Oregon census?

/robbed 17 times in Portland, two cars and a delivery truck stolen
//Portland Police and the Multnomah County Sheriff refused to take a report because nobody was sent to the hospital
///This is why Portland looks safe.

Methinks you don't understand how the American justice system works.

This plan makes so much sense for the average (meaning poor to middle class) person with minor warrant issues. You show up (which is half the battle) and they'll likely throw you on a payment plan. Its cheaper and easier for all involved. If you get any jail time, its because you forgot about that outstanding murder warrant.

As for Richey Rich, he won't be in the line with you. He already took care of his shiat with a lawyer and a trip to the courthouse. That's the best kind of justice money can buy.

a lot of New Jersey hate today.  what gives?

I know someone who helped organize the program.  he said there were about 2000 people who showed up before the doors even opened.
