The Big House

Suburban white kids learn that jail really isn't a pretty place. Community shocked.

"It was traumatic," said a tearful Ratliff on Sunday morning after her parents drove from Stafford to pay her $300 bail at the downtown city jail. "It was sick where they were holding us. A prostitute was fighting with another woman. The food they served was food you would serve to a dog, not a human."

The big question is, will they learn anything from this experience, besides "poor people are icky"?

  1. They no doubt learned that their parents will bail them out of it, and that they're better than those other people.

  2. Another important lesson: They too can become president!

  3. Poor people are icky! As long as I have money, I'll never go to jail.
