  • 3. U.S. prison population dwarfs that of other nations By Adam Liptak Published: Wednesday, April 23, 2008 The United States has less than 5 percent of the worlds population. But it has almost a quarter of the worlds prisoners.Criminologists and legal scholars in otherindustrialized nations say they are mystifiedand appalled by the number and length ofAmerican prison sentences. 3
  • 4. YOU CAN’T READ ALL OF THIS –BE AWARE OF ITRising Incarceration Despite Falling Crime Rates – Despite falling crime rates since 1991, the rate of incarceration in prison hasincreased by more than 50% since that time. These dynamics suggest that therise in imprisonment is due to changes in policy that have increased the amountof time that offenders are serving in prison, and not crime rates. An examination of the rise of imprisonment from 1992 to 2001 concluded thatthe entire increase was a result of changes in sentencing policy and practice.1These include such measures as “three strikes,” mandatory sentencing, and awidespread abandonment of parole in the state and federal system. From 1995to 2001, the average time served in prison rose by 30%. ASK WHY?? 4
  • 5. Federal Prison System Leads Growth – The federal prison system continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, increasing 4% during 2005 to a total of 187,618 prisoners. The number of federal prisoners in custody has doubled in the last decade. One-quarter of the national growth in the prison population during 2005 is attributable to the federal prison system, contributing to an overcrowding level of 134%. This expansion has come about primarily as a result of the incarceration of non-violent offenders. More than half (55%) of federal prisoners are serving time for a drug offense, while only 11% are incarcerated for a violent offense. COMPANION DOCUMENTTHIS WE KNOW IS A FACT! 5

  • 9. Largest Prison Strike in America Ends; Ignored by Media----They should read a little further, because it outlaws slavery everywhere inthe United States except for the prison system, which is why they can treatyou like a slave -- deprive you of health care, make it impossible to accessyour family, feed you whatever they want, house you in inhumaneconditions, and make you work literally like a field slave for no moneyinstead of using said money to help the families of the victims of crimescommitted by prisoners or their children. Whats almost as interesting is thelimited news coverage given to the strike, which is the largest in the historyof the United States. Thats something to make you go hmmmm. 13TH AMMENDMENT DOES NOT OUTLAW SLAVERY IN ITS PRISON SYSTEMS! 9
