ski9600: Gosh, the WoD is working/thanks Carter
Bucky Katt: Good. All those potheads belong in jail.
Atomic Spunk: Maybe we should have mass executions of prisonerslawyers and DAs. That would make the numbers look a little better.
violentsalvation: Thanks drug war, and prosecutors who see no shades of gray.
HotWingAgenda: You know what has steadily declined over the past 30 years? Use of the death penalty. This time has also seen the rise of gun and drug cartels from South America expanding into the US, especially on the east coast. Also, the rise of synthesized drugs like ecstasy.

JerkyMeat: Conservative republicans, that's why.
Lenny_da_Hog: violentsalvation: Thanks drug war, and prosecutors who see no shades of gray.Although they do see various shades of black and brown.

From The Woods: Bucky Katt: Good. All those potheads belong in jail.you ever go to jail before.. on weed?
Spaced Lion: Thanks, Reagan!
Arcturus72: Yes, but when young black males try to better themselves through hard work and effort, they are shunned by their peers for becoming "too white"...How do you fight that attitude?
mediablitz: And violent crime is down. Not by 2 MILLION mind you, but hey, gotta throw 'em ALL in to catch the really bad ones.
MechaPyx: Shoot them. No seriously. You remove a large criminal element and eliminate poverty all at once. Everyone knows they're nothing but thugs and a drain on society anyways. With them gone we spend that money from the no longer needed welfare programs on education and infrastructure, giving a boost to the economy, and it frees up a bunch of housing for the homeless too. Win/win.
LewDux: From The Woods: Bucky Katt: Good. All those potheads belong in jail.you ever go to jail before.. on weed?
whither_apophis: Marcus Aurelius:That's the same chart as police funding via property seizure chart.
RandomRandom: Of course, prison is an easy, black and white fix to a very gray problem.
