F -. You know that the USA has the highest incarceration rate in the entire world, right? Do you suppose that this is because we have more criminal type persons?
If so, then one must then explain that supposition.
The facts are this: People like Dick Cheney heavily invest in corporations like GEO, and the Vanguard Group. Those sick entities make a profit by building prisons, and they use that profit to pass tougher laws - to increase the demand for more prisons.
It's a vicious cycle of corporate vampires warehousing human beings for money.
It's ALMOST as absurd as inventing reasons to bomb little brown people in far away lands under the pretext of "terrorism."
