I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

How to Destroy the American Criminal System

I was looking at an article about jury nullification, which is an interesting read. I was not reading the Wiki article, but related.

The article was in reference to someone who was pleading guilty because their public defender was advising them so. Take the 3.5 years vs risking 20 in a trial by jury. I hear public defenders are overworked and underpaid.

It seemed from my reading that there was some reasonable doubt over the charges.

You hear of this sort of thing at intervals. So, how to go about the ultimate destruction of overcrowded prisons and the dismantling of an overworked system that allows this to take place?

Simple. Stop committing crimes worthy of jail time.

I know, sounds silly, but what if the convicts in prison now viewed it as a MISSION to stop doing things that would put them back in jail or keep them there longer, and preaching to others to stop crime not out of a sense of right and wrong, but as a sure fire way to destroy the system?

In short, you can turn anyone who's angry at the penal/justice system into a law abiding citizen and allow them to get revenge on that system by starving it of crimes, defendants, and prisoners, and therefor revenue and a reason for existence.

Stick it to the man, by doing what he wants, but for your reasons, not his. Thereby destroying him in the process.

Seems very Sun Tzu, doesn't it?

Yeah, I know it'll never happen, but it was an interesting thought.

Convicts, falsely and rightly accused, you've got your mission.
