This article is about a what a girl went through after she was arrested during the Occupy Wallstreet protests.    In the brief 24 hours I spent in jail, not even prison, I can confirm a great deal of what she says.  What I didn’t experience isn’t hard to imagine.  If you are wondering, I went to jail for a DUI, after passing a breathalyzer.  Any of you that are interested in our prison industrial complex should read Matt Taibbi’s The Great Divide.  It will make you ill.

Hat tip to my cousin Trish
