Most of our prisons are government run. The ones that are privatized have a contract, with the government, that assures that they get a minimum amount. (like 95%) So when they are below 95% prison population they still get paid the amount that they would get if it was at 95% without having the expenses of those extra people. So really, having less people keeps the profits up more than if they are full.

Prisons are being bought by private companies to turn a profit on people.
You know, like they did with slavery.

What does prison - have to do with slavery? These are inmates that committed crime - they were not sold to prisons like slaves were sold for profit - on every tier, to include their own countrymen. Colleges are private instutions which turn a profit - is that like slavery too? Private hospitals turn a profit - is that like slavery?

More laws make more things illegal makes more prisoners. Like drug laws. Prostitution...look up private prison fraud. There was a judge on PA that was sending kids out wholesale because he was on the take from the private juvenile jail.

Saw that article!! There is no shortage of corruption. Too many Fed regulations - I am not sure what the answer is - but the system could use an overhaul. We spend more $$ on prisoners than any other country - prisons are like hotels.

Because China executes 100 times more people than we do. Here are some interesting facts:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-30324440 --> China was harvesting organs from these prisoners and they "promised" to stop doing that. If you believe that, I have some real estate in the South Pole I would love to sell you very cheap.

Also: http://www.newsweek.com/china-executed-2400-prisoners-2013-says-human-rights-group-278733 --> This is case you think I am exaggerating the figures. 2400 is what is being REPORTED. But, because this is a state secret, you can bet these figures are much higher. And, if you add to the mix that they have been harvesting organs from executed prisoners, you bet they have a very good incentive to keep arresting people for petty stuff and killing them for their organs.

Now, how evil does the USA look now?

Could you forward me the details of your real estate? I lived in China for several years and I have seen executions, or actually heard the shots. But 100 times more? Considering the population, I think it's on par with the US. One difference, they ARE guilty of heinous crimes.

What part of "state secret" you didn't understand? Also, they harvest human organs for these people. Do you know how profitable is this? There is no incentive for them to execute prisoners for no reason other than for profit. Also, find a documentary about women being executed there, and the "heinous" crimes they are accused for. Two words for you buddy: Tiananmen Square.

As far as prisoner execution numbers, you are putting in the wrong context. To measure proportions, you have to consider PRISONER population and not citizen population. The argument is that the US have the largest PRISONER population in the WORLD. That includes China. So, if the Unites States have more PRISONERS than China, in order to maintain a proportional ratio, United States will have to execute MORE PRISONERS than China. Based on the year I used for my figures, the US executed 46 PRISONERS vs. 2400 in China. Based on the original argument, China executes a much HIGHER ratio of PRISONERS because their PRISONER population is lower than ours. Do you understand now or do I have to illustrate this to you with stick figures?
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
You could be right. I cannot prove my point with official figures. I assume you cannot either. I do have to admit, a lot of those are most likely innocent. Human harvesting, maybe that's stretching it a bit. But, yes, it's possible. Area 51 is possible too... So unless you are better informed than me, who knows? So, my apologies for my rant.
reply
0 ups, 2 replies
Stretching it a bit? The Chinese government confessed to doing it. Did you read the articles I posted? Now you are bringing ridiculous counter-points. That's what a desperate person does when he/she can't support his/her points with facts. Good luck to you.
reply

Harvesting, in my opinion, is intentionally killing people with the aim to use their organs. Using organs from people on death row - often convicted innocently - is more like recycling. I do get your point though. On the other hand, there are countries where it's legal to use organs from deceased people unless they have a donor card stating the opposite. I.e. the opposite of a donor card. Belgium springs to mind. I personally think that's not a bad thing. It helps a lot of people and to be honest, who gives a toss when you're buried with a kidney or liver missing. I don't. About your BBC statistics, I'm not so convinced about the facts coming from the Beeb. They are probably right, but on the other hand they also reported with the utmost confidence about WMD's in Iraq. So I'm a bit sceptical...
reply
1 up, 1 reply
Off topic, but since you brought it up, the WMD intelligence that the Russians and Brits intercepted and provided the USA with was fabricated by Iraq. By Saddam Hussein himself to keep Iran at bay. He confessed this fact before he was executed. Because of Iraq's history with WMDs, you have no reason to doubt the intelligence was fake; especially when it came out directly from Saddam. He didn't think of the long-term consequences. He was more concerned with Iran's nuclear program and Iran's potential desire for revenge.

Where is the insult you are talking about? I provided you with an article by a British outfit (The BBC) where all these human rights violations are being listed. You, on the other hand, keep countering with baseless "maybe this or maybe that". So my question is valid. You haven't supported a single point with something factual. So, I ask again: how desperate are you to be right?

The federal reserve runs the USA. They control our money and our economy. But no one controls them! Not the president congress or voters. They have nothing to do with the federal government just like federal express! They are a privately controlled company! The owners of the federal reserve also own and control the central bank or reserve bank in every other nation in the world except Syria, North Korea and Iran. Google it. May you begin to see through their hollow lies!

Na not at all. I have a few black friends. I'm just a reader of statistics is all. Go look it up on the justice department website what the percentage of violent crimes are committed by black folks and compare it to the % of their total population. But like you say, I'm a "racist"
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
Where's your statistics on how black people are more likely to be convicted or receive harsher penalties than whites for commiting the same crime? Or black students are more likely to be expelled or suspended from school than their white counterparts for the same infractions. Statistics rarely tell the whole story. You really want to know what's going on you have to understand what's going on behind the statistics and do some research for yourself. Your comment was racist and offensive. And just because you have black friends doesn't mean you're not a racist. It just means you tone your racism down around them. But if you say shit like that around them and they don't correct you then they are not your friends. Because a real black friend would correct you so you don't say shit like that around other black people, who would whup your ass.

Yeah keep looking at yourselves as the victim. I agree that statistics won't necessarily tell the whole story, but you can get a good idea about something with them. To just ignore them and throw out a bunch of abstract nonsense as your argument is laughable at best. When the leading cause of death for a young black male is another young black male, and when their responsible for 65%+ of the violent crime in America while accounting for about 14 or 15% of the total population, you can then tell me that "black lives matter". You made my point even better your little "whup ads" comment. Because I say something factual and true I should be attacked? Thanks for proving my point, dumb f**k

I'm trying to help while you're just just spewing untrue, racist, crime propaganda instead of researching the phenomena for yourself. If you want to know the truth, white people are actually the most violent people in America. You want stats dumbass? Here we go: Edward Wycoff Williams, an author, columnist and political analyst for MSNBC, conveyed a reality that many do not seem to know is real. Williams wrote for The Root: “It seems that the media in general and white American society in particular prefer to focus on crime perpetrated by African Americans because it serves as a way to absolve them from the violence, prejudice and institutionalized discrimination engendered for generations against blacks. It offers a buffer against responsibility, a way to shift blame and deflect cause and effect. But the truth, and numbers, tell a different story. At the heart of an increasingly violent society is not a subculture among Blacks, but the violence and criminality of many Americans, and whites in particular. No one seems to speak about this. Why? Because the snake oil was duly purchased and consumed. It is time for race-based pseudo-facts to be challenged and dismantled.”

Statistics are cut-and-dry, and they do not lie. According to the FBI’s most recent homicide numbers available, from 2011, a staggering 83 percent of white murder victims were killed by fellow Caucasians. (Of murders committed by Blacks, only 14 percent were of whites.) And because whites are the majority in the country — there are six times as many whites as there are Blacks — that means they commit the most murders. This could be viewed as startling to many, especially whites, because hardly ever is “white-on-white” crime dissected in the media. As an example, Time magazine’s Joe Klein wrote an entire column recently on crime, focusing on the Black community and calling it a “social disaster.” But there was no mention that whites overwhelmingly are killed by whites, which was typical of media outlets. Williams wrote: “The term ‘black-on-black’ crime is a destructive, racialized colloquialism that perpetuates an idea that blacks are somehow more prone to violence. This is untrue and fully verifiable by FBI, DOJ and census data. Yet the fallacy is so fixed that even African Americans have come to believe it.” Indeed, respected columnists like George Will never examine crime by whites, do not use the racialized phrase “white-on-white” crime and give the impression their lives are at risk because of Blacks. The truth, taking FBI data from 2010: Whites killed whites 3,252 times, which was 4.6 times more than the number of whites killed by Blacks. Whites are responsible for the vast majority of violent crimes, according to the FBI. With respect to aggravated assault, whites led Blacks 2-1 in arrests; in forcible-rape cases, whites led all racial and ethnic groups by more than 2-1. And in larceny theft, whites led Blacks, again, more than 2-1. Williams asks: “Given this mathematical truth, would anyone encourage African-Americans to begin shooting suspicious white males in their neighborhoods for fear that they’ll be **ped, assaulted or murdered?” The Bureau of Justice Statistics found that compared to Blacks, whites were more likely to kill children, the elderly, family members and their significant others. They commit more sex-related crimes, gang-related crimes and are more likely to kill at their places of employment.

Crimes are statistically committed more often in poverty stricken areas, and blacks make up an overwhelmingly large portion of that population. Technically Brad Davis is right, because the stereotypes are backed by factual evidence. I would not, however go around blurting out such racially charged statements because you are liable to get shot.
