Food for thought

The United States has 5% of the world's population.

We also have 25% of the world's prisoners.

Prison/prisoner costs are $60 billion a year, more than the GDP of 140 countries in the world.

Backsliding? Roughly 70% of American prisoners will commit another crime within 3 years of their release from prison.
