US jailing people for being poor 

Publicerad den 18 feb 2014
The US Supreme Court deemed it unconstitutional to throw someone in jail for not being able to pay court fees or fines without asking them if they can afford it first, but still, courts across the country continue to imprison poor people for not paying fines. Then, even worse, those fines grow with interest rate, as the people behind bars have no way to make any money to pay down fines.
