  1. Amazing, right? We’re supposed to be the shining light of freedom and we have more people in prison per capita than any other nation in the world.

  2. Hello friends,

    Anytime you would like a “first hand ” account of how this s SO TRUE. let me know. This country is in the business of prisons and wasting money, seen it personally, unfriggingbelievable.

    Peace

  3. and now this: Lifelong Sentence for Children… pleae, visit my blog http://www.faktensucher.wordpress.com/ . I put together a lot of information; and, I got some very precious contacts to people who fight against DP, DR and Solitary Cells. We don´t need more “dreamers”, we need people who fight for justice: So many of people executed swared to be innocent. WHY DON´T BELIEVE THE SYSTEM these words?
    We are opening doors – sometimes to hells!

  4. Riot brings havoc to private jail

    UNITED STATES: A prison guard has been killed and several colleagues injured during an inmate uprising at a privately run Mississippi prison.

    Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) employees struggled to bring the disturbance under control with prisoners, mostly undocumented migrants from Mexico, remaining in control of the facility into Sunday evening.

    CCA said that five prison officers had been transported to a local hospital to treat their injuries and one was taken off site.

    It said the unrest had been “contained within the secure perimeter of the facility, with no threat to public safety.”

  6. Friend –

    Think about this. The United States is spending over $200 billion a year on a justice system that locks up more people than any country on earth. We have more prisoners than China. More than Russia. More than anyone. This colossal system is hitting our communities with staggering financial and human costs.

    That’s why we’re launching a major new campaign here at Brave New Foundation — like Rethink Afghanistan, War Costs, Koch Brothers Exposed, Walmart, Outfoxed, and other campaigns we’ve done. It’s called Beyond Bars. Building off our work on Afghanistan and war profiteering, this campaign aims to change Americans’ thinking and inspire action through short videos and shareable graphics exposing the U.S. system of mass incarceration.

    This system is a beast — gobbling up resources that should be going to communities. WATCH THE VIDEO.

    Beyond Bars will investigate corporations that profit off incarceration and politicians that use “tough on crime” rhetoric to scare voters. But we won’t just expose the negative; we’ll also show better ways to achieve public safety: things like prevention, rehabilitation, and job opportunity. Such solutions would save untold billions of dollars every year while making communities safer.

    Will you join this campaign to curb mass incarceration? We want your thoughts, suggestions, and engagement as we begin this multi-year initiative. You can start now by sharing our new video to take a stand for a more just world.
