Want to incarcerate kids? Pay Up!

The state of Indiana is finally asking counties to pay part of the costs of incarcerating kids.

There are thousands of kids incarcerated in Indiana. And the tab? An estimated 100 million dollars. Marion County owes the bulk, but even St. Joseph county which sent 130 kids to the "Indiana boys school" last year owes a chunk of change.

Good. The more transparency about the costs of incarceration, the better.
