Ohio throwing People in Jail for not paying their Debt

Sending poor to prison for not paying tiny debts (09May13)

The US State of Ohio is sending poor people with tiny debts to prison, making those debts even bigger. According to a report by the ACLU of Ohio, the state is putting people in jail for for not paying their debts. The study revealed that 1 of 5 people in Heron County prisons were behind bars due to failing to pay pending obligations even though the practice was outlawed in 1833.But Obama promised me everyones working in USA and our economy is great and booming with money for all. Oh wait.Throwing people in jail isn't a solution. It ends up costing working people more money to lock them up than it would to eat the cost of the debt.
