US Prison Population Keep Increasing

By Andrew Pontbriand

June 07, 2015 "Information Clearing House" -  We don’t just have the world’s largest prison population per capita, we blow every other country out of the water. Amazing isn’t it? Amazing we as Americans are told constantly we are the most free, most advanced, and most civilized society. Lady liberty, oh miss high-and-mighty!

Oddly enough, China, a country ruled and looked at as mostly Authoritarian takes 7th place in the world in incarceration rate. Which of course makes you wonder, what the hell is going on in America? Are we just a society of misfits, rabble-rousers, and outright criminals? Or, is it something else?

The answer may surprise you.

We are in fact a society of criminals. Felons walking the streets, and living next door to you. You send you children to play at their felonious friend’s home, where they are under the supervision of criminal parents. OK, so putting it like that gives you an altered perspective, but it is no less true. Though, the reason the average American commits an average of 3 felonies a day, according to Harvey Silvergate, a Boston-based Civil liberties lawyer, is simply due to the profound, massively oppressive laws we have been engulfed in. Consequently, we commit most of these crimes without even knowing it.

As for the real criminals of society, and/or drug offenders both violent and nonviolent, federal mandatory minimum sentencing has ensured the appetite of the prison industrial complex is well fed.

Americans really are a society of mostly good people, although society is degenerating rapidly as empire’s tend to do, but on paper and in the eyes of the swollen establishment, we are criminals. Hard not to be with millions of statutory crimes, and arbitrary man-made laws.

Peep the infographic below and prepare to become wide-eyed and well-informed. There is one hell of a story that reeks of unfortunate irony that awaits below.
