Although the US comprises less than 5% of the world’s population, it incarcerates over 25% of the world’s prisoners. Over 70% of released inmates return to prison with 5 years of their release.
Today's Prison Quote
The government is the potent omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that the end justifies the means -- to declare that the government may commit crimes -- would bring terrible retribution.
~Justice Louis D. Brandeis
