Stories like this clarify how outrageous it is that we mass criminalize crimes of poverty—not being to afford public transport, sleeping where you aren’t supposed to, stealing food to survive, driving on license suspended by inability to pay fees, substance use.pic.twitter.com/R42p9O1qjR
The criminalization of poverty makes for huge profits both private and public. This is ridiculous and evil.https://www.vox.com/the-highlight/22327700/debt-prison-debtors-unpaid-bills …
The fact we know this, that many will shrug their shoulders and say "we knew that already, they all corrupt". Makes me furious. THIS is the stuff we need to end, this is what leads to far worse problems down the line.
Happened because the system is unjust. Islam fixed this 1000 yrs ago by setting up a Zakat ,an amount 2 5% of the wealth of every citizen who meets the threshold. The money is given to the poor . State might collect it and distribute .
driving with no insurance in states with astronomically high rates (like FL) bcuz you can't afford the Ins, need car for work, and public transport is all but non-existent.
