    Yes, states now spend four times more per capita to incarcerate than to educate.

    The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world.The United States has about 5 percent of the world's population, but we have 25 percent of the world's prisoners - we incarcerate a greater percentage of our population than any country on Earth.

    That’s not true.  But we certainly send far more people to prison than we should and spend far more than we need to on our prison system.

    Are you aware that people in the USA are free to make those choices and if you decide to be a democrat and commit violent crimes... you will go to prison.

    It all started with Reagan and his "War on Drugs". He planted crack in the Black neighborhoods. Conservatives are also in bed with the people who run the private prison system.The more people they house, the more money they make, and then those corrupt politicians get their cut.
