Honor student put in jail for being tardy

She supports her two younger siblings. They have no parents. The judge fined her and put her in jail anyway.
This is an example of the American prison industrial complex. Two judges in Philadelphia were caught taking bribes to send kids to juvenile prisons. One kid committed suicide.

In Texas kids are often arrested and handcuffed then taken away to jail for being tardy. The schools and legal system makes money from the fines and they officials freely admit this.

Thankfully I don't live in Texas.
