If sitting in a prison cell was a job, it would be one of the most common jobs in the United States.

If sitting in a prison cell was a job, it would be one of the most common jobs in the United States. In 2012, there were some1,570,000 inmates in state and federal prisons in the U.S., according to data from the Justice Department.

By contrast, there were about 1,530,000 engineers in America last year, 815,000 construction workers, and 1 million high school teachers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

There were also 750,000 car technicians.

Yep, you know it. USA! USA!

A prison is compressed insanity.

It is not about rehabilitation, but about submission to authority.

Was a prison guard for a short time. Realized that at least 10% were in there for crimes they did not commit. People were released every month due to DNA testing proving their innocence.

What a waste of resources, both human and those resources that go into making cages.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
