Interesting bar graph, wonder why the disparity? Or do I have to ask? The rate of recidivism for inmates is 70 to 80 percent, why's that? Or do have to ask? The violent crime rate for some folks here is way beyond their population representation, why's that? or do I have to ask?

Do the crime, do the time. We need a strong commonwealth's attorney, not one committed to being soft on crime. I'm not a dave chapman fan, but he sure looks better now that deaton is running and speaking soley on what he is not going to do with criminals.

I have heard MMRJ in Verona brings them in from Loudon County. Guess they don't want to build a jail when they can put in another strip mall

"There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus,“no other society in human history has imprisoned so many of its own citizens.” The figures show that the United States has locked up more people than any other country: a half million more than China, which has a population five times greater than the U.S. Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.

What has happened over the last 10 years? Why are there so many prisoners?

“The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to lock people up. Prisons depend on this income. Corporate stockholders who make money off prisoners’ work lobby for longer sentences, in order to expand their workforce. The system feeds itself,” says a study by the Progressive Labor Party, which accuses the prison industry of being “an imitation of Nazi Germany with respect to forced slave labor and concentration camps.”

The prison industry complex is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States and its investors are on Wall Street.“This multimillion-dollar industry has its own trade exhibitions, conventions, websites, and mail-order/Internet catalogs. It also has direct advertising campaigns, architecture companies, construction companies, investment houses on Wall Street, plumbing supply companies, food supply companies, armed security, and padded cells in a large variety of colors.”"

I suspect only the most vile and sociopathic among us would actually watch a public execution. I can imagine the drug fueled debauchery that would preclude such events. I have a hard time imagining those that relish in watching the death of another human being would be determined by it. Outside of that, study after study shows that there is no evidence that the death penalty deters crim. Crime rates in China has been growing by 100s of percentages over the last few decades, despite executing 3 to 4 individuals daily.
.
Having written that, it is the only method that is 100% effective against reoccurrence or recidivism.

For all you liberturds that think the death penalty is so wrong...how about some good old fashion public floggings and beatings for the perps/criminals and other lawbreakers.....they won't die from a flogging or beating but you should enjoy the screams from the pain.....and they will probably not break the law again....

Thanks for expanding on this subject, didn't know it went all the way to wall street. Now there's a good investment. But really? this stuff gets me depressed, we let it happen. No law enforcement people should be allowed to own stock.

Dave Chapman is the poorest excuse for a Commonwealths attorney C'ville ever had! At least Steve Deaton can read and will use the correct criminal record when he sends someone to jail instead of using a relatives record with a similar name.
