DEBTORS' PRISONS BACK 2012
Why do we even create and go through such bullshit knowing it doesn't work? Does only dumb stupid ass people run this country?
What good it is to be educated?
The poorest people in America are being illegally abused and JAILED AT "INCREASINGLY ALARMING RATES" by Debt collectors, Police and Law Makers… OVER DEBTS.
Why? Who’s doing this to you? THE RETURN OF DEBTORS' PRISONS. Creditors are manipulating the court system to extract money from unemployed, veterans and seniors who rely solely on their benefits, for which they are being jailed at an "increasingly alarming rates"
It is starting by jailing in error, people who were told they do not have to pay, but collection agencies are able to finagle state troopers to go to homes and haul you off to jail without warning or proper justification. Debt collectors commonly use publicly funded courts, sheriff's deputies, and country jails to pressure people who owe even small amounts to pay up.
Does this mean if we pay them more they will do their jobs better or are they just irresponsible? When you use the excuse of “just doing my job”, does that make you irresponsible? How does taking advantage of loopholes in the law make you law-abiding? Is that upholding the law or taking advantage of the system?
Too many people are being thrown in jail simply because they're too poor to pay their debts. We cannot allow these illegal abuses to continue.
What good does it do to jail a person for debts, how can you expect them to earn the money? Is it another case of the more you abuse them, the more productive or is that submissive you can expect them to be? Why would intelligent state troopers enforce such a law? Are they doing us before we do them? Who will arrest them and haul them off to debtor’s prison?
So who actually is the bigger criminal, how does two wrongs make a right? Although the U.S. abolished debtors' prisons in the 1830s, more than a third of U.S. states allow the police to haul people in who don't pay all manner of debts.
Debtors aren't arrested for nonpayment, but rather for failing to respond to court hearings, pay legal fines, or otherwise showing "contempt of court" in connection with a creditor lawsuit. How do you make sense out of something that does not make sense? How do you make dollars and cents out of something that does not make dollars and cents? Under the law, debtors aren't arrested for nonpayment, but rather for failing to respond to court hearings, pay legal fines, or otherwise showing "contempt of court" in connection with a creditor lawsuit - LOOPHOLES.
Although the U.S. abolished debtors' prisons in the 1830s, more than a third of U.S. states allow the police to haul people in who don't pay all manner of debts, from bills for health care services to credit card and auto loans.
Creditors have been manipulating the court system to extract money from the unemployed, veterans, even seniors who rely solely on their benefits to get by each month. Too many people have been thrown in jail simply because they're too poor to pay their debts. We cannot allow these illegal abuses to continue.In this era of shrinking budgets, state and local governments have turned aggressively to using the threat and reality of imprisonment to squeeze revenue out of the poorest defendants in America.
These abuses behaviors are not only being committed by debt collectors, law enforcement, but are also condoned by Law Makers. A consumer arrested or jailed can't pay a debt! The sad truth is debtors' prisons are flourishing today, meaning we refuse to work with our own citizens to resolve debt issues – more force, violence and abuse.
Criminalizing poverty, what happens when you can’t pay your debt, do you put the squeeze on the guy owing you? Where does that lead?
How does such practices resolve our own financial problems? Do you arrest your children for not repaying monies owed? Power does it make you the bigger person? Are you really concerned about anything, other than your own ass? It will not get the debt paid and only creates more problems within the system. More people unemployed, more people are struggling financially and more creditors…
Together we stand, divided we fail.
