Oz was weird but I liked it. Premise didn't make much sense. Never finished the last season.

Right, it didn't make much sense that an experimental rehabilitation unit would be so violent.

It angers me whenever I hear someone going on gleefully about sending criminals to federal f-me-in-the-a prison, glorifying horrible, harrowing conditions and a prison culture that needs to end along with society's eager acceptance of this nonsense. Let's see someone with that attitude carry it on if they're wrongfully imprisoned.

An American prison (guess which one) was supposedly the inspiration for Rowling's joy-sucking, soul-killing Azkaban prison, described as a fate worse than death.

There are a lot of cases to be made for improving prison conditions in this outrageously wealthy nation of ours, but politicians run the risk of being seen as sOfT oN CrImE.

34% is not an 'overwhelming majority'

are you this thick, engineering man? yes, african-americans, and black males in particular, are over(whelmingly) represented in the prison population.
I understand English, over and overwhelmingly are two completely different words.

as you would expect, considering the inconsistencies in policing, court representation and sentencing. young black males practically get hoovered into the prison system for minor offences which their white, and especially white-collar white, denizens can easily skip.
And jews skip investigation for crimes the average white person would be imprisoned for in short order.

It shouldn't be a paradise but people aren't going to be rehabilitated through brutality, and giving psychopaths a playground is bad for everyone.

34% in a multiracial, pluralistic society with only 13% general population certainly is ‘overwhelming’ and should raise serious questions.

once again you’re more interested in semantics and word finagling than brooking an actual argument. the experience of african americans, and males specifically, in the american penal system is exceptional.

yes, jews like bernie madoff, who get away with everything.

money talks in the american justice system,
not judaism.

This is what you said, you're wrong, where do you get this stuff?

Yes they're over-represented, so are poor whites.

if a society has 4 or 5 main ethnic groups, and yet 1 of those groups occupies 40% of all prison places, how is that not an alarming statistic?

once again you’re fussing over the term ‘majority’ and not answering the issue. no, poor whites are not as equally incarcerated.

Yes its funny, all over the world black africans are more incarcerated than any other group. It is indeed a mystery.

I'm sure poor whites are incarcerated more than rich whites.

it’s like you can see the analysis right there in front of you, you’re even aware of the social impact of poverty … and, whoosh, jump to giant ahistorical, illiterate racial essentialism instead.

black africans are not the most incarcerated group in america. there’s no nigerian faction. and pray tell where else in the world that ‘africans’ make up significant numbers of the prison population.

insufferable, honestly.
