How can you say that based on just the above counts?

How many are repeat offenders?

You think based on emotion, simpleton.

For crimes other than murder, aggravated assault & rape, a first time offender may just get a suspended sentence, unless they are a repeat offender or have a rap sheet.

What I find astonishing is only 13.1% of the population was black as of 2012:

http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000...

What's even more astonishing is 18% of the inmate breakdown have Mexican Citizenship!!!!

http://www.bop.gov/news/quick.jsp#2

Yet, you on the left want to let them all in so you fascists can get the vote!

You better stick to slogans & stay generic using the race card.

You obviously are not a deep thinker, simpleton. You are what they call, a useful idiot, libtard.

No they can't. I gave you the link to the court decision. I suggest you read IT instead of relying on a libertarian think tank that prints only half the truth.
The Nestor case was a very specific case and the court addressed that in their decision...they said, "THIS IS NOT TO SAY, HOWEVER, THAT CONGRESS MAY EXERCISE ITS POWER TO MODIFY THE STATUTORY SCHEME FREE OF ALL CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRAINT."
They went on to say that the Due Process clause of the constitution would apply and "interpose a bar" if the action of Congress manifested itself as "utterly lacking in rational justification." They went on to explain that in the Nestor case Congress was only justified because it was determined it was "rational for Congress to have concluded that the public purse should not be utilized to contribute to the support of those deported..."
You people are so gullible.
You Pseudo Liberals are gullible and all legal which Jimmy Carter Cut & reduced Social Security benefits but didnt eliminate them.

and here is an article since you dont remember Jimmy Carter doing it and Obama suggesting the same reducing Social Security.

President Obama Has Made Himself a Lame Duck

It's true that President Obama isn't the first Democratic president to propose cuts to Social Security. Jimmy Carter successfully cut Social Security.

A proposal from President Jimmy Carter in 1977 proposed indexing changes that effectively cut benefits for future retirees.
Right. Carter not only changed the index, he proposed doing so in a way that reduced benefits more than chained-CPI would. Carter also scaled back eligibility rules for Social Security's disability insurance.

How'd that work out for Democrats?

Update

Carter's Social Security cuts left the door wide open for Ronald Reagan and the Republican Party to become the defenders of Social Security. Carter's mistakes in Iran were his own but Carter's cuts to Social Security hurt the Democratic party for a generation.

Your fellow travelers on the left will say anything to paint veterans in a bad light.
Your observation that enlistment was often an alternative to jail for minor offenses is correct, and not a bad idea.
It was the worst idea imaginable during war. Many of those guys were back home in a month or two via a casket, many more are still sitting around VA hospital chewing up tax dollars__Yes, the Vietnam war is still being paid for.

It was so bad in 1968 and 1969 that the infantry company commanders wanted draftees only and, depending on the jurisdiction the offenses were not minor in any regard.

<quoted text>Those numbers can't possibly be accurate for Vietnam and I suppose other wars as well. Certainly one in five Vietnam era vets didn't end up in prison and even more certainly those men didn't make up i/5 of the US prison population.
There are various sites that debunk many of the "Myths of Vietnam."
During the late sixties America's courts offered service to nation as an alternative to long jail and even prison sentences and also, many a father marched his son to the recruiters office as a way to get them away from drugs, a girl etc. Many Vietnam vets were doomed from day one to get themselves or worse, a good soldier, badly injured of killed.
True that many of that eras vets found their way to prison__but not that many.
Read about the lies of your leftwing buddies, from a Justice Department site with a link:

Veterans are much less likely to be in prison or jail than non-veterans.

"In 1998 there were an estimated
25,062,400 veterans in the United
States population, including 225,700
veterans held in the Nation’s prisons
and jails. Males comprised 95% of all
veterans and 99% of those veterans in
prison and jail. Among adult males in
1998, there were 937 incarcerated
veterans per 100,000 veteran
residents, up from 571 per 100,000 in
1985. Despite the increase, male
veterans were incarcerated at less than
half the rate of adult male nonveterans
(1,971 per 100,000) in 1998.
Since 1985 the number of U.S. veter-
ans has declined by nearly 3 million, an
average decline of 1% per year. The
number of male veterans dropped from
26,962,000 in 1985 to 23,834,100 in
1998, while the number of female
veterans rose from 1,044,700 to
1,228,300. The number in prison or jail
rose from 154,600 in 1985 to 225,700
in 1998, an increase of 46%. However,
during this period the number of
nonveteran inmates rose 172%. Veter-
ans accounted for 12% of all inmates
in 1998, down from 21% in 1985.

Why would those who enlisted to avoid jail be any more likely to die than any other soldier?

And why should they beat the draft, forcing others to go in their place?

Wannabe thugs like Trayvon would benefit from military discipline instead of roaming the streets.

Galt disagrees.

Carter's bumbling incompetence on all issues hurt the DemoKKKrat party.

Just as Obama's bumbling incompetence will hurt the DemoKKKrat party once they no longer have Obama on the ticket.

Presidents don't "create" recessions, idiot.

You are nothing more on this thread than a partisan dolt.

By the way, it was a "world wide" recession". Did Bush create that too, numbnuts?

You are nothing more than an old frustrated liberal that just repeats propaganda.

Tell us, useful idiot, did Bush "abandon" Afghanistan?

Dumb Dave asks is a person should not take advantage of something they paid for their entire life:

The United States federal government imposes a Medicare tax of 2.9% on wages received by an employee and on business or farming income earned

Dumb Dave, do you not take advantage of the system?

I bet dollars to donuts, your income was paltry, and you make out very well for what you paid into the system.

Am I wrong, frustrated liberal?
