    Roger Rabbit: Yeah. Check the probate. Why, my Uncle Thumper had a problem with HIS probate, and he had to take these big pills, and drink lots of water.

    I get the idea of making people pay when they can, but when taken to it's logical end as has just happened, the idea falls apart. Completely cutting them off from anything is absolutely non-conducive to any sort of rehabilitation. What is that prisoner with a boatload of debt, no SS/pay/money and low job prospects (they're convicted, after all) going to do? Likely turn right back to crime.

    This is one of the most repulsive and vindictive ideas I ever read.

    We are talking about a scenario in which people consciously choose to reject rehabilitation. Actions should have consequences.
