KIds For Cash the movie is a documentary about two Pennsylvania Judges (Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan) who were imprisoned for 40 years because they sentenced thousands of innocent juveniles (some as young as ten years old) to prison for 2.5 million dollars in kickbacks.
Judge Ciavarella received a 28 year sentence, and Conahan is awaiting sentencing)
This movie captures the devastating impact imprisonment has on youth and the dangers of not policing privatized facilities. It seems wrong to me that the prison owners who paid the illegal kickbacks are not being sentenced along with the judges. Thousands of lives were ruined and there is no getting back a childhood or erasing the damage done to the poor children ruined by this monstrous institutional failure.
