4. Of course she's right, extremely unegalitarian also. The problem

 

is what to replace it with and how well it works.

Of course many, many communities want to fix this and are already implementing new technology such as ankle monitors and such, but an era of underfunding, defunding and taxes cut to the bone is greatly retarding replacement of the current cash-in system with a cash-out out.
