    Depends on which lobby you talk to. Lobbyists for the private penal corporations may think so. So, the next time you're golfing with you senator or buying lunch for you representative bring this issue up.
    What?
    What's that? You don't golf with your senator or have lunch with you representative? Well who does?
    I may be wrong.

    Heh, I've seriously considered investing in rent to own stores.
    Like a real personal investment with one of the local businesses.

    It's not every week, even during the recession, that I see one of those trucks pull up near my neighborhood and it's not every other week that I see one taking stuff back.

    Seems like a gold mine.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    This should be a civil matter, not a criminal matter. This smacks of debtors prison all over again. I swear what is this country coming to.

    You are correct, your renting you sign a contract and in that contract it says you must return the furniture upon default of payments or face criminal charges.

    This is not like buying something on a credit card...the merchant is paid for his merchandise up front..
