Does it bother anybody that America has the highest incarceration rate in the world?

Yet your chances of being assaulted or murdered is much higher here than in countries with much lower incarceration rates. Why is it that violent crime is so high compared to other western nations even though we lock up more people than any of them?

Most western countries don't have as many black people. Murray has a much lower crime rate than Paducah and Paris and fewer blacks. Big cities have higher crime rates and more black people. The high crime areas are always mostly black. I know it's not politically correct but it's the truth.

There is only one reason for our over crowded prisons, the failed war on drugs.

We have higher crime rates and higher incarceration rates than other countries for one reason: we don't apply the death penalty or other types of punishment as those countries do. There is no fear of punishment in this country, therefore, there is crime.

Wrong. The only other countries that have capital punishment are either third world or Arab.

I disagree it's not the only reason& it sort of goes with the war on drugs, but I myself think marijuana shouldn't be categorized as a drug... But there are many many mental patients who self medicate with marijuana. That new law about the drs testing patients & not prescribing their meds if test are positive... Is gomna back fire in law officials faces. The prisons will be so overcrowded that they will have to build more. They will just be locking up mental patients like back in the 30"s... I don't look forward to this at all

South America is mostly Hispanic and famous for kidnappings, drug cartels, and tyrannical governments. Jamaica has six times the murder per capital than the US.

Black crime rate is higher, so is that of the poor..........is it just me or is the the average black person far poorer than the average white person. Drug use among blacks and whites is an almost identical statistic percentage wise, however the overwhelmingly majority of drug arrests are black. Cops simply pay more attention to them. I have many black friends who are good productive members of society, and they have spent their entire lives being harassed and looked on with suspicion at no fault of their own. On another note, yes! The reason that our encase creation rate is high is drug charges. I'm not sure on the stats right now, and frankly I'm too lazy to look them up, but in 2004 65 % of those in prison were there for drug charges. And, don't give me this crap about small no one caring about small time marijuana charges. A close friend of mine about 3 years ago was arrested in Murray and sentenced to 30 days of inpatient rehab after the police found a glass jar that used to have weed in it. All it had was the beautiful little crystals that fall off the outside of well grown cannabis. We later found out that one of the arresting officers had been sleeping with his girlfriend for months before this. We arrest and incarcerate people for things that are not inherently crimes. Btw you know who else had a low encarceration rate because of capital punishment?? The Khmer Rouge

when the prison system became private owned and the gov. pays them for their service, the lock up rate skyrocketed. the prisoners are treated good and dont mind going back to jail---easy street to them. If that mess was cleaned up and the prisoners punished instead of handled with kid gloves the crime rate would go down.
just sayin

LOL!! And, Wall St white-bred "financial advisors" rob people around the world blind. I'm more worried about the white guy stealing my retirement and investments than any person of color.

The jackassery of your logic makes my brain explode. Urban areas simply have more people. There are more car accidents, more shoplifting, more shootings, more stabbings, more streetlights, more Taco Bells, more buildings. You're like the guy I know who figured out population was correlated with terrain; duh, living on mountain slopes is hard.

These people bad-mouth other races...do they pay attention? What color is Loughner who shot-up Arizona and almost killed Gifford? What color is James Holmes who shot-up the Boulder movie theatre? What color is Breivik, the guy who killed 70+ people in Norway and said that was a good start and apologized for not killing more? What color was McVeigh?

Merely judging by acts alone, whites tend to kill indiscriminately. If Hispanics kill someone, it tends to be another Hispanic. If a black person kills someone, it tends to be another black person.

Most people of color don't want to commit a crime against a white person simply due to the weight of the legal system against them. They're like, "shit, I gone and hurt a white person. Dammit. My life is over." But, if they hurt someone of the same race, they know they'll be out on parole in about 30 days. "Shit, I'll smoke his ass, do my 24-months, and then I'll be out rollin' fatties."

If a white person kills someone - it could be anyone, black, white, Chinese, male, female, babies. When was the last time you saw a Hispanic arrested for keeping human body parts in a freezer? Or a black person arrested for cannibalism? 90% of the time its always some crazy white redneck couple who steal kids and lock them away. Have you never watched Criminal Minds?!?

And, then the white person will be like, "oh, I killed and ate those people? Seriously? I must have a mental disease or defect."
