Bezos could donate $7 million to charity every single day for the next 50 years and he'd still have about $15 billion left over to buy more slaves.

Or, you know, pay it in taxes so that the countries amazon works in can fund schools and roads and health care and stuff

I love that all fractions of 7 are different segments of the same repeating decimal! 1/7= .142857 2/7= .285714 3/7= .428571 4/7= .571428 5/7= .714285 6/7= .857142

*Two million children are arrested every year in the US, 95% for non-violent crimes. *66% of children who have been incarcerated never return to school. *The US incarcerates nearly 5 times more children than any other nation in the world.

One of these cells is for a suspected terrorist. The other is for a non-violent child. If you guessed the one with the window was for the suspected terrorist, you'd be right. (photo credit Richard Ross)

A Harvard study found an average of 60,500 students in detention centers (Brook), at the huge taxpayer annual cost of $148,767 per student. This annual cost could instead pay for the students' college tuition for six years at most public universities (College Data).

These are NON-VIOLENT children, btw. And to compare, the average cost of education per child per year is approximately $10,700.

We have to ask ourselves, who pays to imprison these children? Who allows it to happen? The answer is: we do.
