“Guilty until proven rich”
Prison as social control and cheap labor
“There will no slavery EXCEPT for people convicted of a crime”
One out four prisoners in the world is in a US prison. Higher than China or Russia.
Rwanda comes in 2nd.
Russia comes in 3rd.
743 out of every 100,000 Americans are in prison.
40% of the prison population is black, yet only 12% of the country is black.
The prison system is the most sinister and cynical of all our businesses. If we knew even a fraction of the truth of how it operates, and why, we would despair.
Just make sure that if you commit a crime, you’re rich.
