    • @bigcats maybe it would be better to give criminals a good lecture ? only 5 or so states allow this but I don't have any problems with people being responsible for the debt they take on, they are not forced to borrow

    • @bigcats I don't agree with debtors prison, they only end up there if they fail to appear. I DO agree with paying ones debts. lol and since debtor prisons are state and local prisons my tax dollars are not used for that since I do not live in the states any excuse to bash the US, kinda funny

  • You don't go to prison for owing money. You go to prison for not showing up to court when served with a notice or not complying with a court order. If you can't pay, then the court won't force it upon you and the creditor gets a lesson on whom not to give credit.

  • What is RT news?

    You can go to jail for decades when you owe a few thousand dollars in back-taxes (which double due to ludicrous IRS interest rates), but go to jail for a few years (or none) on 2nd or 3rd degree manslaughter.

    All about money.

  • I stopped watching immediately after Lucy Kafanov stated "...people living outside their means...". If what I am CURRENTLY hearing is correct, people are no longer living "outside their 'means'"...getting harder and harder to live at all, let alone staying within one's 'means'.

    Which in turn equates to false idgit justification for debtor condemnation.

  • They don't go to jail for the debt, they go to jail for not showing up in court because the debt collectors serve properties where the debtor no longer lives, or no service at all, then lie to a judge telling them the debtor skipped out. Funny they know where you live when they tell the cops.

  • Disgraceful. I guess we should just start locking up people for having the nerve to not be born into money.

  • A lot of debtors belong in prison - buying a house, car and loading credit cars by falsely declaring their income for example.

  • these dumb bitches ignore that debtors' prisons exist for non-payment of child support. these dirty whores are only concerned when women might actually be affected by something negative.

    • @bronco2000 In Michigan, if you are ordered to pay child support....the "friend of the court" steps in.
      First they go after your job.
      You lose your drivers license, contractor license, etc.
      Then they hit you with late fees.
      Then they put you in jail for not paying said fees, since you no longer have a job.
      If the mother is on government support, i.e. food stamps, section 8, medicaid, etc.
      The father gets to pay all of that back!
      I have a friend that was ordered to pay child support whe More..
