The upper class would love to see the United States become a prison State Plutocracy, creating free-range slaves out of the poor and working-class. The Proof is in the presidents, every president, since Nixon and Reagan, EVERY president has approved hundreds of private prisons, while in office.
The reason there’s less crime from older people is because they’re getting away with white collar crime.
1:51 EVERYONE I KNOW FROM MY BAY AREA MIDDLE CLASS PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL HAS SHOPLIFTED! THEY OPENLY ADMITTED IN A NON-ANONYMOUS POLL!
did you know that “mauer” means wall in german?
Great topic I hate to plug my stuff but I just did a video raising these questions and then talked to some FB friends from all walks of life about it. A good number of people want to see better rehabilitation and greater consistency in the system. Some people brought up incentive system so quality people who screwed up when they were young can earn a clean slate with time and certain activities. Putting people with records back to work can prevent future criminal activity. I know its corny but this is legitimately on topic.
There is no justice in America. A pothead can get 5 to 10 for a joint. While the 1% upper class Rob the American people of millions of dollars, houses, and livelihood.
Not one upper class corporate douchebag went to prison in 08.
THERE IS NO JUSTICE IN THE UNITED STATES.
All right this man has the right idea I’m pretty sure not too many criminals will be doing crying when they get in their forties and fifties but for the ones that come on Young the problem is the reason why they repeat crime it just cuz when they try and go on the straight and narrow what no workplace get them a job so if they want to live under a house or pay the bills or on a car they going to have to go back to crime just to make some money?
Sir, I am so sorry for the inconveniences caused by this situation and I apologize for the sake of your family and friends who are not in the same way as you have already seen it but who knows when you will be able to make it happen for the next year or two. I hope you are doing well since I am SO proud of you Dad.
60 grand a year? for one inmate? this is bullshit. this is why we don’t imprison people, fellas, we behead them, we cut their hands off, or we simply flog them, but we don’t keep them in prisons. too costly.
Great topic and Trevor asked some insightful questions. Maybe one day along with getting rid of mass incarceration they can also legalize marijuana. Turn that into a legal business nation wide.
Mass incarceration of black, white, Hispanic all creeds (over half of those incarcerated are for non-violent crimes). It is not a public service, it’s a service to for-profit corporations that run 66% of our jails. We have the most incarcerated people on the planet per capita. There is very little actual justice, rich people pay fines and hire fancy lawyers to get them off, while poor non violent criminals serve time without a proper attempt at rehabilitation; it’s disgraceful. I do think it will change over time but it will take a very long time. “I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them”.
“reducing time people spending in prison […] focusing on reentry into the community”. I don’t think anyone wants to have a rapist or murderer in his neighborhood. Imagine, someone comes out of jail just because he is getting old.
Really would have liked the two of you to touch on the privatisation of prisons, now that it’s big business, seems less likely these “corporations” would be willing to lessen the time their “customers” spend incarcerated.
Wow so rape is the only crime with comparable sentences to europe
I need 9 more SUBSCRIBERS
So if a criminal kidnaps a child, rapes them and murder them then we release them after 20 years because we want to save money, right?
Just kill them…What’s the point?
