Someone explain how we can be the most free nation in the world but hold the most prisoners.


"That's what free people do." - Rumsfeld on the looting of Iraq.

"The rich are free to do what they want." Noam Chomsky on freedom.

25% and that's not counting the secret black ops torture prisons.

Unsurprisingly, a large number of veterans are also incarcerated. Justice Department statistics suggest roughly 12 percent of the 7 million people within the corrections system—in prison, jail, or on parole—have served in the military. Four in five incarcerated veterans reported drug dependency, and nearly a quarter held in jails were homeless in the year before arrest. A quarter were also identified as mentally ill.

Unvarnished statistic, how long before it all implodes, and what happens to general society when they can no longer be kept there, should worse go to extreme? Shoot them all? And as it appears that up to 10% of the prison population is actually innocent, what happens to those who mass murder guiltless blood? employ them by Blackwater?

Re: USA prisons hold 25 % of the world's entire prison population
I just have very little tolerance or sympathy for criminals - they have an incredibly corrosive and damaging effect on society and the whole quality of life - everything has to be locked up gaurded, anything nice gets trashed or stolen - what % of GDP is spent on the various branches of law enforcement - police jails courts lawyers etc

Military expenditure is in essence just dealing with foreign criminal governments.

The more civilised and tolerant society becomes it seems the less able it is to cope with criminal behaviour.


Personally I would do something pretty drastic about persistant criminals - as I suspect would the majority of other non criminals.

When I see a them lock up a Wall Street zionist criminal then I might have to agree with you. Right now it seems to me that prisons are for gentile goyim animals.

Re: USA prisons hold 25 % of the world's entire prison population
I can personally think of a few MORE that should be jailed.

I've got no problem with it.

Tell ya what, I'll take our justice system any day over China's if I've screwed up, or if I haven't and have been falsely accused.

They'll just shoot ya over there, then they've got no problem to deal with further.

Actually, we may could do with some more of THAT over here.

from another forum



There
is something very wrong with this picture folks:



In absolute terms, the United States currently has the largest inmate population in the world, with more than 2½ million[8] or more than one in a hundred adults[9] in prison and jails.

Although the United States represents less than 5% of the world's population, over 25% of the people incarcerated around the world are housed in the American prison system. Pulitzer Prize winning author Joseph T. Hallinan wrote in his book Going Up the River: Travels in a Prison Nation, "so common is the prison experience that the federal government predicts one in eleven men will be incarcerated in his lifetime, one in four if he is black."

In 2002, both Russia and China also had prison populations in excess of 1 million.[10] October 2006, the Russian prison population declined to 869,814 which translated into 611 prisoners per 100,000 populatioByn.

As a percentage of total population, the United States also has the largest imprisoned population, with 739 people per 100,000 serving time, awaiting trial or otherwise detained.[11]

In March 2007, the United Kingdom had 80,000 inmates (up from 73,000 in 2003 and 44,000 in 1985) in its facilities, one of the highest rates among the western members of the European Union (EU) (a record formerly held by Portugal). The highest imprisonment rates among the larger EU members include that of Poland, which in August 2007 had about 90,000 inmates, i.e. 234 prisoners per 100,000 inhabitants,[12] while the highest rates are in the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania with estimated rates of 240, 292 and 333 respectively in 2006.[11]

The high proportion of prisoners in some developed countries is from various causes, but the attitude towards drug-taking plays a considerable part. In undeveloped countries, rates of incarceration are often lower, though this is not a rule. In general, such societies have less goods to steal and a more community based social system, with less judicial law-enforcement. Also their economies may not support the high cost of incarceration.

In 2008, America is now the world's number one jailor. Its prisons hold 25 % of the world's entire prison population and a 2002 Department of Justice ruling allowed Americans to torture prisoners as long as the torturer "in good faith" did not believe permanent harm would result (torture being defined by the US Department of "Justice" as only those "extreme acts" that cause pain similar in intensity to that caused by death or organ failure).

You have this wrong.

The U.S. holds 25% of the world's prison population, NOT 25% of the world's prisoners are held in U.S. jails.

Think about it, there's a difference.

Re: USA prisons hold 25 % of the world's entire prison population
[link to www.fourwinds10.com] explains it:

Under commerce all crimes from a traffic ticket to rape or murder is a tax violation, of commerce. In commerce a real live man or woman does not go to jail or prison for violating some “crime” they go to jail or prison as surety for their straw man who has been accused and convicted of violating COMMERCEand the real man or woman not understanding the system, jumps up and screams out take ME “judge.” The real live man or woman must knowingly or unknowingly volunteer to go to jail or prison for the straw man. Example: When in court the “judge” calls out a name and if the real man or woman answer such as, here, yo, etc., they have just become the assumed straw man as the paper or document the “judge” is looking at has the name he called in all upper case letters.

I had many opportunities to educate women on the monetary system of jail. The moment an order is written, whether it's a warrant or a traffic ticket, or whatever, the money machine is activated. Every prisoner has a monetary value to our government whether its local, county, state or federal. Bonds are written based on the person's name and social security number and are sold through a brokerage firm such as AG Edwards or Merrill Lynch who has the contract to sell all the prison bonds for the city, county, state or federal prisons. Over 50% of the money market bonds right now are purchased in Japan or China. I've been told by researchers that Walmart and, used to be, Kmart also purchase these bonds, Walmart mostly doing so by emptying out bank accounts at night. Both companies are fronts for enormous money machines.

The way the bond works is that a monetary value is placed on the alleged crime and then factored the way banks factor their money. In other words if a person is convicted of a felony the "value" would be $4 million. The county/city/ state then multiplies it by ten, so the bond that goes out for sale with the prisoner's name and social security number is a short-term "promissory" note. It's offered at $40 million. Perhaps an investor will offer 40% of the $40 million, or $16 million. Once this "promissory note" of the face value of $40 million reaches the banks it is then multiplied again by 200 to 300% and sold as bank securities. For those of you who wonder why the US has more people in prison per capita than any other nation on earth, you'll begin to understand how we can have a weakening economy and still fund wars overseas. It' s all based on prisoners.... in other words, prison for profit.

Knowing all this and knowing that a prisoner can have a "net worth" of say, $10,000 per day in the money markets, helped me explain to many bewildered women why they were in jail. We were only merchandise in a warehouse. The storage was pretty cheap; one woman while in jail researched the cost of feeding prisoners per day which ranged from 74 cents to $2.72 per prisoner per day.

In America, CRIMINALS get punished, in 90% of the world it's okay to brutally murder women and girls and light them on fire. It's not us being wrong it's other countries full of evil psycho men being lawless.

Re: USA prisons hold 25 % of the world's entire prison population
they leave the borders open, leave stupid drug laws in place, it's almost like they want to destroy the fucking country.

They might want to destroy the white man's power, so that they themselves can have more power, but in the long run, they are only hurting themselves with these silly policies.

I suppose they have their other homes in Brazil, Panama, etc. that they can live in with hired security and gates anyways though.

Depends on the state. Lots of illegals are coming up and destroying towns with their gangs and drugs. The government keeps the borders open, keeps drugs illegal, to encourage crime. Makes no sense eh?
