Simple Misdemeanor & Death
“Just before Christmas, Janice Dotson-Stephens died in a San Antonio jail. The 61-year-old grandmother had been arrested for trespassing, a class B misdemeanor in Texas. She couldn’t afford the $300 bail, and a mere $30 payment to a bail bondsman would have let her out. She stayed in jail for nearly five months, waiting for her case to be handled, before she died. ”
“The misdemeanor phenomenon has been largely overlooked, overshadowed by the sheer harshness of its felony counterpart. And some of that is fair enough. Thirty-year drug sentences, solitary confinement and the death penalty do indeed make misdemeanor punishments seem petty.”[How a simple misdemeanor could land you in jail for months]

Not so according to God.
If anyone desires to reform the justice system then deal with the small as if it were large and Prosecutors will begin to toe the honest line.
Treat every honesty, no matter how small, as eternal truth and every lie, no matter how small, as worthy of the judgments of hell and all shall be reformed.
Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. (Luke 16:10)
Now you know why Police and Prosecutors cannot be trusted as long as enabler Judges promote so much dishonesty.

“Albert Florence was arrested in New Jersey for failing to pay an outstanding civil fine, a transgression for which he could not have been incarcerated. Nevertheless, he spent six days in jail where officials strip-searched him twice, inspected his genitals and subjected him to a delousing shower. Turns out it was a mistake — Mr. Florence had paid the fine years before but the statewide database had not been updated.
Was this legal? It was. When the US Supreme Court heard Florence’s case in October 2011 in Florence v. Board of Chosen Freeholders of County of Burlington, it decided in April 2012 that the strip searches were constitutional.”[How a simple misdemeanor could land you in jail for months]
