Yes I think it's a great idea however consider this
A criminal can have a the right to an attorney even if they have done wrong and broke the law, Now they can have jobs too yet an innocent victim who is wrongfully accused in a civil case (defendant) the Court will force that person to Proceed with out their right to an attorney.
A side from moral which some people care about what is stopping those without those values from committing crimes when now you can break the law, tie up the system if you can't afford a lawyer and get a job to boot.
How about creating jobs for the victims of domestic violence who have nothing but the clothes on there backs in the womans shelter? Shouldn't they as victims hav that opportunity as opposed to a criminal who willfully gets there self in there position to begin with???

Oh and let's not forget the kickbacks the bg shots will get for rehabilitating prisoners and the ego that goes along with it.
I suppose that's why there is no such money or bennifit from victims in fac tey cost the system money and there's no reward.
However criminals hve to pay fines and usually getting money from them is not a problem they are paying customers.
I wonder what the underlying reason really is caring about criminals i don't think so.
Companys getting tax breaks and credits and big wig getting kickbacks sounds more like it.

I'd like to know if the commissioners have any such proposals for victims of domestic violence who have a family to support yet are forced to stay at a shelter with nothing just so they can live safely?
Some of these woman don't even have a notebook it's really sad yet theres no officals doing anything on there behalf.
Funny how that works. If you call them and ask for there involvment in such matters they claim they have no jurisdiction or interest in such matters however they can do what's bennificial for them and there pocktes RE: KICKBACKS
Public Officials should not be paid it should all be volenteers kind of like jury duty. Get a person who works a real job at an hourly wage and knows the meaning of a hard days work.
If legislatures weren't paid there would be people lining up to fill in those positions for free.. And would work hard and honestly for the people without the cash
