When it comes to the criminal justice system, as many community activists have stated, putting people in jail is big business, an extention of the U.S. slave system, largely African American with a sprinkling of Hispanics and poor whites, designed to incarcerate those who cannot afford to pay for good legal help. What happens if you are falsely accused and your Public Defender insists that you plea bargain, even if you are innocent?
