Paying for jail space? What's new? That's been the staus quo here for decades. thus the jails relfect stratification on the outside. Folks with money have multiple rooms, phones, televisions, etc. The poor sleep in the patio. Kids live with thier parents if they have nowhere else to go; leave for school during the day, and go "home" to jail at night. Etc.
