America Has the Highest Incarceration Rate in the World.
The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate, and total documented prison population in the world.

As of year-end 2007, a record 7.2 million people were behind bars, on probation or on parole.

Of the total, 2.3 million were incarcerated.

More than 1 in 100 American adults were incarcerated at the start of 2008.

The People's Republic of China ranks second with 1.5 million, while having four times the population, thus having only about 18% per the US incarceration rate.

China does not have the drug and gang problems we have. It would not be tolerated. Nor are their prisons the country clubs that many of ours are. No weight rooms, they do hard physical labor. No cable TV, no sitting around playing cards or computer games. No anything.

At least half of our prisoners are there for some drug related crime and many are returnees who go in and out of prison so much that they cannot function outside of it and don't want to learn how.

Hundreds of thousands of these prisoners...are being forced to work for as little as 20¢ an hour, some as low as 75¢ a day!

They produce everything from clothing, eyewear, furniture, electronic cable assemblies, aircraft parts, computer circuit boards, mattresses, printing, data entry, vehicle parts, "shrink-wrap" Microsoft software, meatpacking, telemarketing, and on and on.

The apparel industry has lost 8,000 jobs to the federal prison system alone

Bottom line is this:

If you live in America you are a criminal.

Everybody is a criminal whether they realize it or not.

There are so many laws on the books that nobody truly knows how many laws they are breaking at any given time.

Remember, ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Have you read every law?

Do you know how many laws exist?

Do you know how many new laws are created every year?

There are so many rediculous laws on the books it's mind boggling.

...In the state of Alabama, if you put salt on a railroad track, death is the punishment.

Sprinkle pepper or any other spice, though, and you're perfectly alright.

...If you live in Fairbanks, Alaska, forget about feeding booze to a moose, because it's against the law.

Sorry, guys, no more cold ones for Bullwinkle. Guess he can be the designated driver.

...In Tombstone, Arizona, it's illegal for citizens over the age of 18-years-old to have more than one tooth missing when smiling.

Guess nobody who's ever been on the Jerry Springer show will ever be able to live there.

...In Little Rock, Arkansas, any flirtation on city streets between men and women could garner you 30 days in jail.

Are you sure Bill Clinton used to live there?

...In California, which has always been a little bonkers, it's a misdemeanor to shoot at game from a moving vehicle, with the exception of a whale.

Okay, so then it's okay to do a drive-by of a beluga?

...In Colorado (Denver), dog catchers are required, for 3 days straight, to post notifications on trees in the city park and public road running through the park that notifies dogs of impounding.

But what if the dogs are illiterate?

...In some parts of Connecticut, it's illegal for fire trucks to go over 25 mph, at any time.

So those folks in that burning building had just better be patient!

...In Lewes, Delaware, it's unlawful to wear pants with a firm-fitting waist.

Who runs this town, Janice Dickinson?

...In the state of Florida, showering naked is considered to be an offense.

Showering fully clothed, however, is only considered to be idiotic.

...In Georgia, it's against the law to keep a donkey in a bathtub.

Yes, but what if he really reeks?
