Watched a fantastic 2 hour documentary called "Prison Nation" on MSNBC. The American people are being scammed by the prison industry/prison authority.(especially here in California and New York) Here are some random, scary facts I remember from the show;

1. The largest population of mentally ill patients in the US are located where? LA County Jails.

2. 2nd largest population of mentally ill patients are at Riker's Island.(NYC)

3. 80% of ALL US inmates use drugs while behind bars.

4. Some prisons legally allow drug use by inmates.

5. We (U.S.) spends $80 Billion dollars per year on our prion system.

6. Only 8 prisons in the U.S. offer college degree programs for inmates.

7. 2/3rds of US inmates return to prison within 2 years upon release.

This is from memory but I'm close on the reported facts. Bottom line, interesting and tragic at the same time.$80 Billion ( with a B) on programs that DO NOT works. Prioners become more VIOLENT after being in the prison system.(survival mechanism) and due to increase in Solitary Confinement ( Ad Seg) for inmates. Watch it. Thought provoking, if nothing else.

I know your an anti drug guy but, There has to be a total revamp of our drug laws. Too many kids end up in jail for non violent marijuana charges and come out affiliated with street gangs and violent. Holland & Portugal has done with fantastic results.

After watching the documentary, I must
say I agree with you. The majority of the prison population is like 20-38 year old men. MANY are in on drug, stealing, non-violent charges. They end up leaving violent.
