The fact that this question was even asked shows the stat of mind of our elected officials. Why would you fine a person who obviously has no means of paying that fine? Who would choose to sleep on the street if they had any other option? If this is approved it will only serve to swell the number of people already in jail because that is where they will End up when they cannot pay the fine or bail. This seems to me to be a mode to increase profit for for profit jails not out of any real concern for citizen safety. Shameful!
