Wikipedia, the repository for all knowledge in the universe, states that "more than 1 in 100 adults in the United States are in prison. The United States has less than 5% of the world's population and 23% of the world's prison population." Those are staggering numbers. Don't get me wrong, some people need to be locked up for a good long time but we have created a culture of fear that feeds the prison system. Instead of changing how we deal as a society with petty crime we have instead privatized jails and incentivized court systems to be less lenient with it's citizens.
What's next? If you have criminal tendencies you'll be locked up? Fill out this questionnaire when you go to vote or renew your license. If you score high enough on the new Pusser/Earp criminal attitude test you could be hauled off right then and there...
Ann: "It's pouring out. I can barely see the road."
Kire: "I can't believe the Sheriff's Department still has prisoners cleaning the side of the highway in this rain."
Ann: "Today is not a good day to be prisoner."
Kire: "When exactly is there a good day to be incarcerated?"
Ann: "The day you get out of jail. It's a criminals own fault. They shouldn't have got caught."
Kire: "Don't you mean they shouldn't have committed a crime?"
Ann: "Sure. We'll go with your statement."
