I have read that we have a higher percentage of our population in prison than any other country. Are we that much worse in criminal behavior? It is expensive and wasteful to have so many in prison especially for non-violent crime. I am assuming that many are in that category. We should have some of the people who are responsible for corporate crime in prison. Fines do not hurt the perps as much as it does the stock holders. I perceive the U.S. to be on the wrong track in so many ways. When prosecution is selective, is that justice? So far as "fairness" is concerned, the word has been hijacked and ruined just as has been the word "gay." The word "terrorist" has been banned from the executive department and mostly from the "mainstream" media.
