The legalization of certain drugs will reduce this number. The people who deserve to be in prison are the real criminals; Murderers, Thief's, etc. Not people who used 3 ounces of an illegal drug, and getting 10 years in prison.
We need to loosen drug laws to bring that percentage down.
Yeah but there mostly black so it's okay
AW YEAH 'MERICA!!!
We have 25% of the world's incarcerated criminals. We have no "prisnors".
But it does not surprise me to hear that at all.
