John Oliver Features My Stupid State Destroying Lives Over Municipal Violations

Municipal violations are extremely minor offenses, for not wearing a seatbelt to failing to vaccinate your ferret. Several cities make a fortune off of these off of the backs of the poorest amongst us because they cannot afford the fines, so private companies step in to rape them for 1000 times more than they owe.

If you don't pay, you can be jailed or have your license taken away. An astonishing 64% of offenders have lost their jobs because they can't drive.

Of course, Florida is featured (6:15). An idiot Sheriff's deputy is bragging (in costume) of all the licenses he took: despite the fact that 88% were due, not to reckless drivers, but people who couldn't pay their fines.
