For those of you who don't believe the prison industrial complex is real here is a case that will blow your minds. I know it blew my mind. However, I wasn't shocked. A judge was convicted in a kids for cash scheme. Throwing KIDS in jail for cash. No wonder why the US has more people in prison than in any other industrialized nation.
Presently the US has more people (2.1 million) in prison than any other country in the world. In fact we recently exceeded China, which has 1.6 million people in prison, despite having four times the population. Statistics also show that nearly half (one million) of our prison population are inside for non-violent offenses.
That's one way of being able to compete with China, India, Vietnam's labor force. I'm hoping that the fiasco that is going on in Wisconsin will wake up the American people so that they will see that the shrinking of the middle class is no accident and push to take our country back from those who only want to steal our treasures.
