Obama said reforming the criminal justice system was a top priority for his remaining time in office.

Is this a white collar criminal resort or a federal 'pound me in the ass' prison?

You can bet he won't see any thing untoward there.

He might be on a fact finding mission for Eric Holder and Lois Lerner.

He is starting a big push to get thousands and thousands of people released from custody that have relatively minor offenses for drug use/dealing. It will be no coincidence that the majority of those that will be released are non-whites. The argument will be that since the non-white incarcerations rates are far higher than for whites, then the justice system is broken and needs to be fixed with more lenient drug laws for all because of cultural differences. They will call that Diversity Justice.

Considering we have one the most screwed criminal justice systems around. We have the highest incarceration rate in the world and 22% of people in the world who are in prison are in the US. Those are staggering numbers for a free society. That is has taken this long for a President to even look at the problem is crazy.

Dunno where those 'figures' are coming from but less than 1% of the US population is in prison.

But again if there is blame to be assigned that goes to politicians, and lawmakers.



According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2011 – about 0.94% of adults in the U.S. resident population


en.wikipedia.org...

Last time I checked the US population is over 330 million.

I think you should read the statistic presented more carefully.

Well that was hilarious.

The justices system doesn't need to be 'overhauled'.

That guy just like OBama need to stop writing so many laws.

Webb can cite any number he wants mostly made up anyway.

Think Webb needs to read the BJS statistics.

I guess you didn't read the article. The author doesn't particularly like Webb so he did some fact checking.

I guess you still don't understand the statistic being talked about. 22% of the prisoners in the world are in the U.S.

You guess wrong.
That 2 million + prisoners in the US is 22% of the prisoners on the planet.

While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world's population, it houses around 22 percent of the world's prisoners.[1]

Now do you understand?

The BJS stats only cover state and federal prisoners, and don't include local. So if the state and federal prisoners number between 1.5 and 2 million and local prisoners number around 700,000, neither Webb nor the article Phage provided are too far off.

Or is this a case of "nope still wrong, it's not exactly right" or something?

Not hardly for the last time the BJS was cited.

That is not a guess.
