Thanks for lending some perspective. I knew the ~1.7 figure but I didn't have a good frame of reference. I was thinking as a percentage of GDP (real small) instead of trying to find a comparable industry.


Now if they'd just fund hospitals like they do prisons...





...



we'd still have the same massive overcrowding and fuckery. without cutting back on the overcrowding any rehab is a joke. and instead of letting people use there time productively (ie, getting a college degree) we got rid of those programs in favor of being a bunch of vengeful pricks. Seriously, fuck whoever supported dismantling those programs, and fuck everyone who supported mandatory minimums back in the 70s/80s or whatever. It's statute now that prisons should be ineffective and overfilled..
