Of all the people to choose to make an example of, why jail this student? http://www.khou.com/video/yahoo-video/Honor-Student-Jailed-for-Absences-153847275.html I'm really disgusted. I see students who hate to be at school, don't care if they're late, and do everything to run away during school hours to ditch and go make babies and get in gang fights. So yeah...let's find one who does better than almost every other student AND is living without her family AND is working her tail off to support others at such a young age and throw HER in jail to teach everyone a lesson! UGH! I hope the judge's stupidity works in favor of this girl and people step up to give her a hand. Sounds like she wouldn't NEED one if he left her alone. She's working hard and making her life into something. That is a GOOD example, imo, compared to the average teenage sense of entitlement and thinking the world owes them a favor just because they're breathing. Punishing hard work. This should be the poster story for how hard working people are treated like dirt in this country. Keep people down and dependent on the government and you have a government in total control and a nation of citizen's with no sense of pride or duty. It's happening so fast...it's so very sad.
