How Debtors' Prisons Are Making A Comeback In America

 No, we need to find more creative and archaic ways to wastefully, immorally and seemingly unconstitutionally incarcerate poor people. Welcome to the latest trend in the penal colony formerly known as America. Debtors’ prisons. A practice I thought had long since been deemed outdated (indeed it has been largely eradicated in the Western world with the exception of about 1/3 of U.S. states as well as Greece).

Don’t worry, I’m sure private prisons for debtors will soon spring up to make this practice a pillar of GDP growth.
