STATISTICS ON THE CURRENT JAIL POPULATION: WHO IS THERE?
FATHER WHO SHOPLIFTED VIDEO TAPES for his child, LOCKED UP for LIFE!
TAKE A KID'S PIZZA --- LIFE !
The whole family was devastated.
I was Jobless, we all were Hungry,
living in a motel room that took all
our money. I wanted to entertain my son ...
The average activist, the pro bono writer-researcher progressive personality will always be interested in the entire, slowly-evolving legal FRONT -- including all stories related to cruel and unusual misjudgements by the courts LIKE EMPLOYEE/ BOSS arbitration, In PRIVATE, the Worker always LOSES.
I just heard a story on PACIFICA NETWORK radio station which has archives you can listen to even with an old computer.. We receive KPFK-FM which is only one of its many stations, (Los Angeles based ) in a chain of hundreds existing across America... KPFK has a very well organized ARCHIVE of shows that you can listen to so click there and bookmark it for those long, rainy nights.Start a radio show like that one in YOUR ciTY, Any station will hear your ideas. PUBLIC RADIO.
Well, that's where I heard this story about an army veteran (a father,) getting life in prison for shoplifting children's video tapes.
California has the abominably horrid 'three times you're out' law, so CLICK THERE < to see who else has such laws. End result: the SUPREME COURT did not overturn this horrific cruel and unusual punishment (UNCONSTITUTIONAL,) when it was appealed. Three times you're out means that life in prison is possible even for a very decent guy. The father in question had done it before. We dream that it would be possible for lay people to create some kind of educational TIDAL WAVE of OPINION ON THE ISSUE which would encourage youth to enter the field of LAW and settle into pro bono law and wage LAWSUITS against the system for emotional damages for such 'cruel and unusual' punishment.

BEFORE PRISON DURING AND AFTER, ONE WOMAN'S STORY OF INJUSTICE
NOW the question is, how many people are in jails for life? How many states have the THREE TIMES YOU'RE OUT LAW?
America the Gulag Nation
Friday, May 28, 2004
The U.S. Dept. of Justice just released the latest figures on
American prisons. Currently, there are 2.1 million people incarcerated. ONE IN SIXTY OF US BEHIND BARS !
Any time you hear America is a democracy, where citizens have rights,
remember that prisons represent our 35th largest state.
We have more people in prison than live in Nevada, West Virginia, New
Mexico, Nebraska, Maine, Idaho, New Hampshire, Hawaii, Rhode Island,
Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, Vermont, or
Wyoming put together.
According to a report by the Sentencing project, crime rates have
been declining since 1990, but the prison population has risen by 49% during this time.
America now is the greatest jailer on earth. .... Our rate of
imprisoning our citizens is approximately 600% higher than either China
Racially, things are even worse. In historical perspective, the 899,000
African Americans incarcerated today are nine times the number of 98,000
in 1954, the year of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. So there
are now 900% more blacks in prison today than there were 50 years ago,
while the black population has only doubled, or increased 100%.
Put another way, you can say that a black person is nine times more
likely to be held a prisoner today in the U.S. than they were in 1954.
The huge surge in incarcerations are almost all due to punitive and
racist laws that criminalize behavior that is considered to be minor in
other countries. Among this are non-violent drug offenses, and the
notorious three strikes laws. For example, again using info from the
sentencing project, in California, which has a three strikes law, "the
third "strike" of more than half (57%) of these persons is for a
non-violent offense. In one recent case, Santo Reyes was sentenced to 26
years to life for trying to take the written portion of a driver's
license test for his illiterate cousin. Reyes had previously had a
juvenile burglary conviction in 1981 and an adult robbery conviction in
1987.TWO SEPARATE WOMEN on East Coast got prison for enrolling their children
in a neighborhood they didn't live in. 5 YRS the state feeds them and the orphaned child
at a cost of several million dollars. Real Budget minded.Not to mention unnecessary trauma
to kids who now FOREVER will hate Whitey and the system. Probation would have been enough.
THIS IS HATEFUL RACIST INJUSTICE. Not to mention the two movie star moms who did worse
to get their kids into A POSH COLLEGE and likely will get boutique sentences.
In America we have imprisoned for life a man who committed two robberies
in 24 years, and then tried to take a written license test for his illiterate cousin. ....
Aside from General Motors, America's most thriving economy is its Prison
Industry. Just like General Motors, the judges, prosecutors, clerks,
attorneys, law enforcement officers, food & transportation industries,
prison guards, gun manufacturers, construction contractors make untold
billions and billions of dollars annually catering to this Industry.
Yes. the Prison Industry is a very lucrative business upon which
millions profit and depend. The more prisons built, the more people they
can thrown in prison. Every prison must be kept to overflow. The
objective is to make sure there are no empty beds, for empty beds are
indicative of lost revenue to the Prison Industry. Of all things, they
must keep that turn$tyle turning. The faster the better, racking up
billion$ for more construction for prisons, more guards, more lawyers,
more judges, more police, etc., etc.
This is why, left to its own conclusion, there shall never be a
conclusion to crime on the streets, for crime is so very profitable and
important to the existence of government. Without it, people would start
questioning the need for so much government. Crime gives the politicians
the ammunition needed to sing their re-election hymn, "Vote For Me,"
with its first stanzas, "I'm Tough On Crime!" And so goes the American
Prison Industry until it exceeds the size of that of General Motors.
