What percentage of Americans are in prison?


I recently heard on TV that 1 out of ever 132 Americans is currently in prison. However, I find that hard to believe; I simply cannot imagine that the real number is that high. Can anyone provide me with an authoritative source which states the accurate statistic of Americans currently in prison?

    Union? I haven't heard America called that in a long time. I wish we would unite to take on a common enemy, "Big Government"; but that is nothing more than a pipe dream.
