OH SWEET PEOPLE----YA GOTTA SEE THIS:  JOHN OLIVER HAS SEIZED THIS ISSUE ALSO---SPECTACULARLY.  I promise this clip will amuse and make you furious at the same time.
I only wish he had covered the European solution I mentioned.  Please give it a look and think with me about the quicksand system we have now.  I have relatives in the justice business and I will
forward this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UjpmT5noto to all of them.

And this just in: http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2015/03/finland-home-of-the-103000-speeding-ticket/387484/  (Thanks to Carol Maurer for both these links)

Nice gig for the rich white folk who live in these podunk towns who don't have to pay appropriate property taxes, eh? In their informed humility, they know that it's all those poor people of color who commit ALL the crime anyway, right? So let 'em pay and pay for what it costs to keep putting themselves away. Never mind the only *real* reason for a police force and the courts anyway is to guard and protect white privilege -- white homes, white businesses, etc.

At what point will the people of America stand up for themselves?

Hopefully before they lose the ability to by being slowly bled to death by the government and greedy private corporations...ugh!

Wow. Been saying for decades the penalties should not be monetary but community service. That eliminates the muni conflict of interest as well as taking your time in payment and everyone's time is equitable.
