    Default Why Are So Many Americans in Prison?




    The truth is racist.

    Free speech is cool as long as it jibes with our program.

    Doesn't the entire establishment do that? Like when the Right blames the conditions of black communities on Democrats, all of those "dEmS aRe ThE rEaL rAcIsTs" arguments, isn't that also saying the truth is racist?

    That's true. 20% of the prison population is there for non-violent drug use.

    Close all the prisons. The citizens should be shooting the criminals.
    Ape lives matter. Stop putting them in zoos. Boycott businesses that don't hire apes.

    Then answered all the Jews, and said, Jesus' blood be on us, and on our children. So be it.
    Jews want to turn America into an atheistic, amoral, socialist farmyard.

    Can you name all of the Democrat bills currently on the table to decriminalize drugs?

    The criminals are probably better shots, and the NRA will see to it that they are well armed!

    There ya go, all one of them, and that only recently, and only for weed. Meanwhile, people have been languishing in prison for many years. And while it's true, Republican control freaks are big part of the problem, it's a huge stretch to make the claim that they are solely to blame. In fact, Jade didn't even blame just Republicans, but the entire "right". A major portion of which are libertarians, who absolutely support decriminalizing, and even complete legalization of all drugs in many cases. As a conservative, I've long advocated the legalization of weed, and decriminalization of all drugs. So it sure as hell ain't MY fault. And I'm far from alone among conservatives.

    is it because they broke a law, got arrested, convicted and sentenced?.......that's how it usually works.......
    Isaiah 6:5
    “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

    Not all laws are just, and it makes no sense to have such a huge prison population.

    Hey asshole, can't you type with normal sized letters? The enlarged type doesn't make you look any more intelligent. Everyone knows you're an idiot...
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.
