And where did you get your stats from? Now who is being racist with your stats. My brother-in-law,(my husband's half brother) is in prison for armed bank robbery. My sister's husband has several counts of felony bail jumping and and his 5th and 6th DUIs pending against him, because he doesn't know how to stay sober. He drinks every day. My nephew, my brother's oldest, got hooked on drugs and is now being charged with 24 counts of burglary. Part of the problem there is that my brother died when my nephew was only 13, and he couldn't cope with his dad's death. But all of them are white, not black. So I know a lot about what I am talking about. So 9 out of 10 criminals are not black like you think.

I'm sorry, I didnt think you would take me literally. When I said 9 out of 10 times, I'm talking the majority. The facts are all online. Feel free to do some research, a few people out of your family doenst make up for the thousands of others that are in jail..Its not a racist post, its the truth..nothing racist about telling the truth!

Whatever! I am tired of people like you who criticize a race for the actions of some. No race is perfect.

Dont get mad cause its the truth! If you cant handle the truth then dont listen!

The incarceration rate in state or federal prison or jail for men was 1,384 per 100,000 residents, for women 134 per 100,000 residents. The rate for white men was 736 per 100,000, for black men 4,789 per 100,000, for Hispanic men 1,862 per 100,000. The rate for white women was 94 per 100,000, for black women 358 per 100,000, and for Hispanic women 152 per 100,000.

there are lots of reasons that people get the sentences they do. i will tell you what isnt fair when some piece of garbage gets a slap on the wrist and given rehab for a violent crime. truth is when a judge sentences people their entire record is brought in for review. is there a parole violation? is there a probation violation? is there the third strike of three strikes and your out? the criminal justice system isnt perfect but at least there is truth in sentencing and i dont feel sorry for any creep that gets jail time for violent crimes. so next time you feel sorry for the thug think about what their victims went through for them to get to this point

Some get harsher punishments because they have a criminal record where as others have never done anything wrong in the past life education ect.. all come into play I am white and I had a black judge come down on me hard for a dui..I wasnt driving I merely had my keys in the ignition to keep warm until my ride could come get me but it doesnt matter if you didnt intend to drive
