Record-high ratio of Americans in prison

Record-high ratio of Americans in prison

For the first time in history, more than one in every 100 American adults is in jail or prison, according to a new report tracking the surge in inmate population and urging states to rein in corrections costs with alternative sentencing programs.
Note: Guess how many kids are in foster care because of this.

  1. "New York state is one of the states with the most prisons" I hear so much about how the politicians are trying to reduce the amount of people who enter the prison system by implementing alternative programs. I myself have been through a program and even completed one but in the end your still left with the same problem you started with. (Employment) they just won't hire you.... you are considerd a liability... R.M
