    What does the amount of prison inmates that are incarcerated have to do with the number of US military casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan?

    These comparisons are getting on my nerves... -.-

    Okay, so it costs 3.3 billion dollars to hold people that are going to be in prison for the rest of their life, per year!.. They are going to be there till death, just kill them now and save us billions of dollars a year in tax money.

    America actually makes more money from their prison system.... they re-invented the slave system. Basically, prisoners work for like 25cents an hour.. it`s not mandatory, but if you don`t you`re put in isolation. It`s cheap labour.

    The crime rate has fallen by 40%
    The US population has increased by 20%

    Lionhart has a point. If you just dump people on an abandoned island, they`ll eventually work out a strong society and COULD come back to bite you. It would be better to put them on an island that has been stripped of all usable resources.

    Like Tenty said, it`s a money making industry. That`s why it`s incredibly unlikely we`ll ever see prison reform in the states. Works the same as rehab, private corps make a lot more money off of drugs being illegal than they could ever make selling them if they were legalized.

    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.

    Actually, in all seriousness (for once), Australia is NOT a resource-poor country, never has been, and that`s its biggest problem. That laid-back, she`ll-be-right, never put off till tomorrow what can be delayed forever, attitude has come about from 200 years of stripping the country of its rich and easily acquired resources, and now that we`ve reached the 21st century, economic reality is finally catching up, and for the first time in the country`s history, we are realizing we WERE "The Lucky Country" but from NOW on, we have to work frakkin hard to keep a high standard of living.

    My bad, the 1 looked kinda like a 2.

    kill all the inmates on death row and the ones doing life sentences like right now

    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.

    For those who say to kill those doing life sentences: Life sentences aren`t always given out without parole. Sometimes someone will get a life sentence, but will get parole after 30 years or so, in which case, just outright killing them would be robbing them of time they might have had out of prison.

    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.

    This is why I don`t like the idea of incarceration. If they`re in for life, just kill em and harvest their organs. If they`re in for petty crap, let them spend time doing Public Service. There really aren`t a hell of a lot of reasons to lock people up IMO.

    More interesting factoids Ggolbez:
    Whilst possibly true of the US (where an Atheist might spend more time behind bars for claiming to be one), the UK prisons have Atheists over-represented.

    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.

    The underlying question is... Why are there more blacks committing felonies per-capita then hispanics or whites ?

    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).

    To compare to the UK, approx. 1 in every 69 people is in prison- 30% less. Curious.

    "What isn`t mentioned here is the number of industries based on free labour from prisoners in the US. Its basically the 21st century`s version of slave labour. Funny that it is mostly black people that are used."

    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.

    " Wouldn`t it just be cheaper to throw `em all on a deserted island and let `em fight it out, Lord of the Flies-style?"

    That`s been tried. It`s called `Australia.`

    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.

    I`d like to see how many of these are bogus drug charges. I imagine a good amount. The US government would save a lot of money if they decriminalized marijuana I`m sure.

    Possession of marijuana rarely gets you thrown in jail.

    Don`t know if anyone`s said this yet, but the Government encourage prosecutions for petty offences (drugs for example). The prison workforce makes many different products from military to office furniture. Quote "Seventeen inmates crowded in a makeshift basement factory in that facility crank out over a million dollars` worth of office chairs per year, in exchange for wages ranging from twenty cents to $1.50 per hour."
    This is one of the Many reason for why cannabis (a HARMLESS substance)(yes, harmless unless your Schizophrenic) is illegal.
    It is Perfectly fine to make prisoners work, and to profit from them; but to make people into criminals for profit, (There are privately run prisons in America). Discuss....
