Repressive Underbelly Of The US Nanny State: 25% of World Prisoners From 5% Of Population

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: Truly think about this for a moment. The US has 25% of the entire world’s prisoners, yet the country’s entire population comprises just 5% of the world. Are we really the land of the free then?

(Source: David Stockman) – There are 2.3 million Americans in prison or jail. The U.S. has 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of its prisoners. One in three black men can expect to spend time in prison. There are 2.7 million minors with an incarcerated parent. The imprisonment rate has grown by more than 400 percent since 1970.

Recent research suggests that incarceration has lost its potency. A report released this week from the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law finds that increased incarceration has had a very limited effect on crime over the past two and a half decades. – Read More – David Stockman

  1. Separation of church and state is what you have here. When you separate yourself from the church; you become wards of the state. Who needs church when government will take care of you; i.e. they feed you-house you-teach you right from wrong? If you ask me, government is the one violating the separation of church and state! The results are tougher acting laws and fuller prisons with less overall freedom for all. I recommend separating yourself back away from the state, and thereby, regaining your freedoms. God frees you; man puts you in bondage. Most people get that wrong.
