60. Everyone in my neighborhood played this game.
Everyone in my childhood neighborhood (lower middle class, reasonably diverse ethnicities) played this game in order to try to send their kids to a better public school. No one was sent to jail.

I find the notion of jailing a mom who is trying to give her kids an educational step-up (ESPECIALLY when their dad DOES live in the preferred school district) criminally absurd.

If she does one minute of jail time, while the BFEE gang and Goldman Sachs criminals still walk free with impunity, my faith in this Republic will be further diminished.
