1 in 100 Now Behind Bars; Numbers for Blacks and Latinos Bleak

Three decades of constant prison-population growth has pushed the United States over a new, unwelcome threshold. For the first time, more than one in every 100 Americans is incarcerated; however, for Blacks and Latinos, that number is significantly higher.


US Incarceration Rate Hits New High,8599,1718266,00.html

"For some groups, the incarceration numbers are especially startling," the report said. "While one in 30 men between the ages of 20 and 34 is behind bars, for black males in that age group the figure is one in nine."

The racial disparity for women also is stark. One of every 355 white women aged 35 to 39 is behind bars, compared with one of every 100 black women in that age group.

The nationwide figures, as of Jan. 1, include 1,596,127 people in state and federal prisons and 723,131 in local jails. That's out of almost 230 million American adults.

The report said the United States incarcerates more people than any other nation, far ahead of more populous China with 1.5 million people behind bars. It said the U.S. also is the leader in inmates per capita (750 per 100,000 people), ahead of Russia (628 per 100,000) and other former Soviet bloc nations which round out the Top 10.

1 in 100...

while these numbers are startling and too high for a so-called civilized nation,and yes while there are also those behind bars who actually are innocent i ask you this..if those who are guilty had the opportunity to truly turn their lives around if enough rehabilitation programs were offered,how many would stay out of trouble for good and who would stray,the parole system in this country is a sad joke constantly releasing criminals back into society who are in no shape,manner or form ready to be back amoung law abiding folks the criminal justice system in america need a SERIOUS overhaul but how to do it is the answer and until such answer is found the numbers will increase.

Yea, I know this cuz California has I think the most prison facilities in the country. Something like that. I know our taxes go a lot to the prison system and paying prison guards high wages. I read an article about how much prison guards were getting paid and all the leaves of absent that were taken off but goes untracked or sumptin.

Amazing, isn't it?

Much Love,

It is amazing to know some still believe 9/11 was an external terrorist act, and use this mis-information to continue terrorising the rest of the world. It is amazing is that 1 out of 100 in the USA are incarcerated. Terrorism within and terrorism without. hmrph. I shudder to think about it too deeply.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
