    Why does the United States of America believe in a highly punitive form of punishment via the

    prison system which has a high recidivism rate?  Why doesn't the United States of America adopt a more humane form of corrective discipline?

    Because police unions have too much power, and their corruption is massive. Another reason is they allowed prisons to be built and operated for profit, and this is an obvious conflict of interest insofar as any notion of 'justice' goes.
