Obama Admits US Has Biggest Prison Population in the World

“The United States is home to 5 percent of the world’s population, but 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. Think about that. Our incarceration rate is four times higher than China’s. We keep more people behind bars than the top 35 European countries combined. And it hasn’t always been the case — this huge explosion in incarceration rates.

Our prison population has doubled in the last two decades alone.”
