That`s been tried. It`s called `Australia.`[/quote]
QUIET, DAMN YOU! *looks around nervously, drops the party to its knees with a downward wave of the hand*
Do you not know in whose realm we wander? The very MENTION of Australia could summon the Beast, known only unto mortal man as Lionhart. Do not speak of Australia. Do not speak the Name That Should Not Be Spoken. Lest we invoke the Beast, so keen of wit and profound in the skilles of Photoshoppery...
Tread carefully brothers, for I fear the Beast may be awakening... I fear for us all.
That`s been tried. It`s called `Australia.`
Exactly. Companies like Microsoft and Victoria`s Secret take use of prison labor all the time; it`s how prisons make a lot of money. this money is why cops try to arrest people all the time regardless of being guilty or not (mostly people of color). It`s why racist corrupt courts give unfair and harsh prison times. It`s why marijuana is kept illegal, given that a large percentage of arrests are for marijuana possession, use, or sale.
Poverty is not the answer, there are more whites and hispanics under poverty level (in total) than blacks, and more whites on welfare than blacks (in total).
15% of the UK population claimed to have "No Religion", 32% of inmates in the UK have "No Religion".
Similarly, in the USA, whilst the statistics that show Atheists to have a low representation, it does not include the 20% of inmates who chose not to answer (obviously), futhermore, the accuracy of that data is highly disputed.
Futhermore still: African Americans are 1) Far more religious (<5% Atheist vs >15%), 2) Far more incarcerated (7% vs 1% incarcerated).
Blacks are 50% of prisoners so it matters.
But I digress. These numbers make me sick.
Wrong way. Maine has the lowest rate of incarceration (1 out of every 226). Louisiana has the highest (1 out of every 55).
Scotland - 126 per 100,000. Woo!
New orleans murder rate: 67-95/100,000 per year.Baghdad murder rate: 40/100,000 per year.
The other 54 got suspended sentences or good behavior bonds.
what can america do about this? i dont even know what to suggest. I mean china is high becase their country sucks- its very poor and has the worst government. what on earth is americas excuse?
well i guess if theyre all behind bars theyre not roaming the streets, though.
Also, out of 2 million behind bars only 3000 on death row? unbelievable
great solution...privatitise the prison system...its a conflict of interest!
No, the people pictograph is per population, whites have a higher population overall, but hispanics have a higher rate of imprisonment per capita.
Am I misinterpreting this?
My eye skipped over that on first reading, and then went back up.
Good proof-reading infographic creators. Douchebags.
put them in the military!!!(knows nothing so don`t flame him)
Sometimes someone serving a life sentence did something they wouldn`t repeat, in which case it may be possible for them to become a functioning member of society again. For example, a crime of passion is unlikely to be repeated. Giving a hefty punishment for it is fair and necessary to maintain order, but punishment is meant to reform, not to stifle or destroy.
My bad, the 1 looked kinda like a 2.
[quote] kill all the inmates on death row and the ones doing life sentences like right now [/quote]
There is no quick fix to your predicament. If the government attempted anything like that it would land itself in a mess far greater than its in now.
Simply put, America`s problems; financial, political, cultural, educational, institutional (jail), can only be fixed through enormous amounts of back breaking work. If there was a quick fix, you can be sure someone would have found it and exploited it for personal benefit if it was indeed there.
FYI Davy, most of those 200 or so posts were in the last 3 days lol.
Sorry Dave, accidentally deleted your post instead of mine - proves my supermen theory though, doesn`t it? Even our accidents serve the greater good of removing mindless ramblings from the public eye! Ah well, I quoted you above so people can still see what you said. People, this is what passes for intelligence in a race raised on potatoes and used dishwater called Guinness...
So, pretty much Australia then?
... what a messed up system you people have. 1 in 23 from Louisiana are in jail.
Cheaper maybe, but you end up making a race of supermen. That`s how Australia got started, remember?
So all I need to do really is already know everything about whatever it is I have seen, before I see it. Makes sense... I will get right on that!
The prison population has tripled since the 80s (due to longer sentences)The crime rate has fallen by 40%The US population has increased by 20%
"Their tryin` to build a prison..."
These comparisons are getting on my nerves... -.-
