TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude (49)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Tuesday, January 24; link good at time of posting):
Nearly 300 people who were awarded more than $450,000 in a class action lawsuit over jailhouse strip searches handed the money back to the state to pay child support and related debts.

. . . .

Of the total, $240,000 went to the children's families, and the rest went to state and federal governments to help repay the cost of public assistance during the time that support payments were not available, state officials said.
