As citizens living in the “land of the free“, we may think we are fully capable of living our lives the way we want to with no consequences (as long as no laws are broken of course!).
America exceeds the amount of incarcerated individuals from every other country or entity by millions of people, even China – who has the highest population of humans in the world.
The U.S. doesn’t necessarily have more crime than all other countries, in fact, much of Western society have similar crime rates compared to that of the U.S.. The problem lies with incarceration and the perpetual cycle of imprisonment that has been established for decades.
Want to know what’s funny though? Private corporations in charge of these prison systems are actually profiting billions from this “prison industrial complex” that has run a muck in the U.S..
Correctional facilities made to facilitate and to improve hundreds of criminal’s behavior probably shouldn’t focus its efforts on making money. It should focus on its purpose of existence in the first place. These prison systems are funded by taxpayers and its ridiculous and infuriating to see that private companies are making profits off of the system.
Until next week,
