A lot of prisons in the US are privately run and they charge inmates daily to be there, not using any tax dollars.
@Porkyofthepine, not gonna pay that either. Checkmate, taxpayers
@Porkyofthepine, incentivizing reasons to have more police interactions... what could possibly go wrong?
@Porkyofthepine, how can you pay with no job?
@hasher2288, some inmates have jobs that barely pay but even with those, it leads to them racking up massive amounts of debt on top of court fees that most have to pay.
@hasher2288, famously in california actually some inmates are firefighters who are paid between 1 and 2 dollars an hour for their shifts.
Im all for inmates who are life sentences being forced to labor and provide for themselves.and if possible society. But this privatised buisness model is only going to be sending people back to jail who dont really deserve to be back after having served
The government pursues tax dodges more seriously than they do murders.
They are going to pop your cherry in prison boy. Pay those taxes.
Oooh I wouldn’t do that if I were you. I’ve been there and it was one of the darkest times of my life. Pay your goddamned taxes!
Only works if everyone else is doing it my dude, or you are the irs in which case fvck taxes
@WallrusArmy, even then, it wouldn't work so well. Private prisons exist, and if the government isnt funded enough to create and manage prisons, that'll just open up room for more private prisons.
There will always be prisons. It's a business nowadays.
I know a guy that decided not to file/pay taxes. 3 years later the IRS took his house, bank accounts and car he now lives with his uncle.
@mycatsanahole, but hey. No taxes.
Do you know what they do to sick fvcks like you?!
