We should raise the age where we start counting crimes as crimes. Not shitting you.

"For minors—especially those from low-income families and black and Latino neighborhoods, advocates say—getting convicted of low-level crimes can lead to lasting, and devastating, adult consequences."

"The thing about so many misdemeanors is that we don't even think anybody did anything that wrong," said Alexandra Natapoff, a law professor at Loyola Law School. "And yet we are crippling people in their lives."

I'm not even going to say it.

What a great way to encourage people to be responsible. Let's make that age 85.

Is this a male or a female? Doesn't look like it has missed too many meals.

Right there...there it is.

"The thing about so many misdemeanors is that we don't even think anybody did anything that wrong," said Alexandra Natapoff, a law professor at Loyola Law School. "And yet we are crippling people in their lives."

To put it in perspective, this guy didn't bother to show up to court when summoned. Not once, but TWICE. If that isn't doing anything wrong I don't know what is.

There is a percentage of our population that will never take responsibility for itself; the rest of the populace will never hold them truly accountable for their behaviors and so the cycle will continue to perpetuate itself.

Here is a better idea.

Crime punishment is racist. Completely racist. From now on only white people can be convicted of a crime, and their punishment is slave labor for minority communities. We'll call it welfare.
