I would say 90% of people in jail probably shouldn't be there. Obviously those considered a danger to society, the murderers and rapists, paedophiles and violent criminals, need to be locked away, but anyone else would be better off doing some type of community payback than being sent to a dehumanising environment, where they only pick up more tricks from the criminal underworld, coming out better criminals than before they went in.



We are too busy locking of potheads and non violent criminals to remove a larger amt of the dangerous from society for a longer period of time. There are ways to remove this convenient excuse of "overcrowding" but the war on drugs is just so dern profitable we really dont want to voice the simple fixes.
