Congratulations USA. You are the the first in the world!
 
No country incarcerates a higher percentage of its population than the United States. At 716 per 100,000 people, according to the International Centre for Prison Studies, the U.S. tops every other nation in the world.

Drugs and prolonged sentencing?

dteowner August 13th, 2013 16:53

Wouldn't be nearly as bad if you panty-waist Euros would let us get serious about capital punishment. :P

We're #1!
We're #1!
We're #1!

Seriously though, between all the stupid drug convictions, number of federal laws that you can run afoul of without even knowing and the increased minimum sentencing for things like three strikes, it's no surprise. Our justice system is really in need of a top to bottom overhaul.

No, blatantninja, don't say that! It would put the prison industry out of business!

Yeah no doubt. Private prison are an adomination. Add that right up with civil forfeiture as some of the worst ideas in government.

LOL indeed. And they don't even have a population of 100,000!

If only we would make a bunch of the drugs legal and regulate it. Instead of spending all this money, we could make money instead and stop most of the killing in Mexico overnight. I don't do any drugs at all and wouldn't even if they were legal but this war on pot and other light drugs is stupid. Alcohol is legal and who knows how bad the prescription drugs are abused.

We might not be number 1 in any area, but we are number 2 in Highest quality of life, just behind Norway!! :)

ManWhoJaped August 13th, 2013 21:02

Now we just have to shoot them all. When your country is overrun by criminals we'll see how well you do. But no merkins are just mean, it's not the criminals' faults. If we put them up for a weekend in a spa like they do in norway I'm sure they'd stop with the senseless murder and rape.

Yeah, we call them TOURISTS!! :D

booboo August 13th, 2013 22:55

Hey, we have one of the world's highest murder rates (or something) - yay! Part of the problem we face is too *few* criminals in prison. Maybe we can ship some of our criminals to under-utilized facilities in other law-abiding countries ;-)

Unfortunately incarceration is the Republican solution for 'mental health care'. ;)

Your level of sarcasm only better understood by president Choom, who continues to criminalize marijuana users and overstep local state laws.

once these "non-violent criminals" disappear, the world ranking will drop.

So what. Cry me a river over the treatment of criminals. How about firsts that really matter?

First to take to the skies with the invention of the airplane, first to cruise the open road with the invention of the automobile. Inventors of the computer, using transistors ( courtesy of america), actually the first to altogether truly harness the power of electricity. Light bulbs, anyone? Make a call on your telephone, another American first.

We wont even talk about american firsts and innovation in space, medicine, etc. Look it up on the internet (provided courtesy of american innovation as well). How did we ever get by without us?

ManWhoJaped August 14th, 2013 06:36

It's just racist cops framing people for crimes they commited themselves. But seriously the three strikes law in california is pretty damned messed up. There's literally people in jail for life over stealing a loaf of bread. I knew a woman who was a kleptomaniac and they PUT HER IN JAIL FOR LIFE FOR SHOPLIFTING.

California is supposedly the most liberal state but it has the most mixed up liberalism on earth combined with the most horrible form of conservativism that leads to all kinds of mayhem. Now three felonies would be one thing but how insane is that?
