There Are Now More Americans In Jail Than There Were In Stalin's Gulag Archipelago | Business Insider

There are now more Americans in jail — 6 million — than there were in Stalin’s Gulag, reports Fareed Zakaria, in a column called “Incarceration Nation.”

And it’s not just a relative population thing. The U.S. has 760 prisoners per 100,000 citizens. How does that compare to other countries?

It’s 7X-10X as high:

  • Japan has 63 per 100,000,
  • Germany has 90 per 100,000
  • France has 96 per 100,000
  • South Korea has 97 per 100,000
  • ­Britain has 153 per 100,000

And it’s also a relatively new phenomenon: In 1980, the U.S. only had 150 prisoners per 100,000 citizens.

What’s to blame? The “War on Drugs.”

More than half of America’s 6 million prisoners are in jail for drug convictions, with 80% of those in jail for “possession.” 

By the way, has the “war on drugs” worked?

Um, no.

There are still drugs everywhere. So, maybe it’s time we stopped throwing people in the slammer for possessing them.

J:  Corporate owned prisons.  Follow the bottom line.  It’s always about money.

When Walt finally revealed the secret of his meth manufacturing to Skyler, he created a separate world, layered on top of the existing one and nearly identical except for one crucial detail: this one contained the truth. And it was a world where he convinced her – slowly and successfully, using their children as collateral – that they had to live alone, unless she wanted to ruin everything. If she told anyone, even her closest family members, then it wouldn’t be his crimes that destroyed their family, but rather her – and her failure to conceal them. (x)

Here is the video proof of my previous post about this officer forcing his way into my moms house (without legal documentation) and arresting my brothers friend without explanation. PLEASE REBLOG TO RAISE AWARENESS!!

This honestly made me incredibly uncomfortable and upset. He asked repeatedly why he was using such force, and essentially begged for his life when the cop reached for his gun.

"If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.

If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.

Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.

The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so."  - Kim Katrin Crosby, Keynote Speaker for LGBTQ History Month at Dartmouth (30 September 2013)
