Recently we covered stories of people being jailed for debt in the U.S. Amanda did an excellent job in putting all the facts together and you can read that story here.
Well here is a recent video by a very misinformed person that makes all sorts of incorrect allegations about being jailed for debt in the U.S. Okay, the video could be dismissed as just being crazy but if you read some of the comments on the video you can see some people believe this guy.
This is how urban myths begin. They have just enough semblance to something people would believe and the truth that people buy into the myth without checking it out for themselves. It is not true.
The real story is that some people were arrested for contempt of court because they had ignored the court after losing on a judgment. They were asked to complete a court ordered financial statement and released. Read the story here and get all the REAL facts for yourself.
