Kids for Cash

This morning, February 4th,  I learned on Democracy Now of a horrifying and cruel scam perpetrated by judges in Philadelphia. President Judge Mark Ciavarella and Senior Judge Michael Conahan, took money from the builder of two for-profit juvenile prisons, in return for which they imposed harsh sentences on juveniles to increase the number of inmates in the detention centers. After years of investigations and trials, Ciavarella was sentenced on August 11, 2011 to 28 years in federal prison; on September 23, 2011, Conahan was sentenced to 17-and-a-half years.

In my opinion, these guys deserve to be burned alive at the stake.

Kids for Cash, a documentary about the scandal, will premiere in movie theaters this month. To find out all the gory details, including how the lives of hundreds of kids and their families were destroyed by these judges’ actions, click on any of the links here.
