Peace and Blessings Family,

I was talking to a Brother recently, and he told me about how some folk have to pay a daily fee for being in jail ... i believe he said it was like almost $400+ a day! I don't know if i'm remembering that number right, but i think that's what he said.

Prior to that conversation, i did not even know that anyone going to jail, arrested, convicted, etc., had to pay for their stay in jail and/or prison. So after talking with him i did a little searching, and it seems a few places have started doing this.

The approved pay-to-stay policy charges prisoners $142.42 per day – more than local hotels.

I'd imagine that most folk having to go to jail / prison, don't have lots of money, for if they did ... there is a path of escape for those with money, already built into the justice system ... so they'd not generally be troubled by this additional piece ... leaving only the poor criminal to deal with this.

In the article linked above (or maybe a different one i read) ... some prisoners are being re-arrested, kept incarcerated, for these fees ... even after they've done their regular time.

I don't know ... i simply was not aware ... and am kinda confuzzled by it all.

How about you? What are your thots on this?

Did you already know it was happening? Do they do this in your city?

Looking forward to the discussion.

Much Love and Peace.

Not sure if this policy (pay-to-stay) applies to this brother in this case, but I hope it will not:

Armed robber was never told to report to prison

Wow, this is so insulting and immoral, I just don't have words for it. How can you pay if you locked up? And if our penal system focused on rehab the governments would get more tax revenue because more people working, more tax payers, win, win.

The USA have more inmates than the whole world combined, any 2 of these 3 states together have more inmates than the world combined, California, Texas and New York. Now add in the rest of the 47!?! Utter embarrassment, this is a police state ran by immoral oligarchs and plutocrats, sick.

The only thing I heard of is folks who pay taxes are paying whatever it costs a day for a person to be in jail. Other than that, strange!

Lazy person.
I've heard about some "special" pay-to-stay jails where people willing to pay are given special conditions like "quiet and safe environment" or even staying alone in the cell, and that they don't usually accept people with a history of violence, etc- so I've always thought this is a bit like- so, if you are rich enough, you don't have to be worried that you are sharing your cell with violent people, staying in an overcrowded place or about gang members and so on. If you are a poor person that stole from a shop (just an example)- well, you are kind of out of luck.
