democratic rule in big cities....they don’t deal with criminals. Now if a bit of actual real justice got dished out as deterrents, you might somewhere but the criminals know the system is gamed and they can get away with most things, the criminals get locked up and they know prison is a cakewalk these days as well as them having more rights than victims.

Take away death penalty.
Lock people away for a long time for seemingly petty offenses.
Lock illegals up rather than deport them and have a decent border defense system so as to keep them out.
When people get sent to prison, give them all the libraries, free schooling, weight lifting, flat screen TVs, drugs etc etc to keep them ‘calm’.

The great (not quite ‘late’) Mayor For Life of Washington DC once made the observation ‘ When asked why ‘they’ wouldn’t shut down the DC Jail/Prison in Lorton VA (some 50 miles away) ‘hizonnor’ said (to the effect)
“If we didn’t send them to Lorton some of these boys would NEVER get out of southeast DC”
Other GREAT Marionisms
“Why wouldn’t they want to go to jail? They have everything there they don’t have at home”.
“DC is a great city - take away the murders”.
“THE BITCH set me up”.
Which, BTW, was probably the first run in he had that HE didn’t intentionally break any laws....YES, she did set him up...he may (probably would) have partaken when he was finished but he was obviously only after a booty call and she wouldn’t let him till he took her ‘30 pieces of silver’.

I still think it would have been ‘great’ when that female FBI agent delivered the ‘goodies’ to the room, IF he would have grabbed her and called security on her.....

Of course I enjoy pulling ONE wing off a fly so he runs himself to death in a circle.

http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/topics/drug-policy-reform

From the link at George Soros’s Open Society Foundations:

“Prohibition-based policies have led to a rise in drug-related violence, prison overcrowding, and an increase in HIV epidemics. The Open Society Foundations support organizations that put forward alternatives.”

Another link there, specifically regarind U.S. drug policy:

http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/topics/drug-policy-reform-united-states

From the link:

“The Open Society Foundations support drug policy reform efforts in the United States that address the health, safety, and social harms associated with drug use and drug markets, while reducing the high levels of incarceration, racial injustice, and violation of individual rights associated with current drug policy.”

Perhaps you did not know that you are, in effect, a useful tool of Open Society Institute when you post things arguing for drug legalization.

Considering FR is not a website that supports Open Society and globalist elites, nor is it supported by OSI, I fail to see the wisdom in promoting OSI strategies here that are designed to destroy American morals, society and prosperity.

IMHO.

Interesting thanks redreno.- "people in prison for nonviolent drug crimes" - Someone I know, used to work with state prisoners said that everyone of them claimed they were not guilty of their conviction [for one reason or another] but a minute later would talk of the crimes they did and got away with. He said he heard this often. So when you hear of nonviolent offenders remember some just didn't get caught being violent.

Two things - the myth of the “non-violent drug user languishing away in prison” is just that - a myth. I don’t believe for one second that there are any significant number of people doing time because they decided to fire up a joint or a bong. What I do think is that people who are criminally inclined also enjoy their recreational drugs. Those that say if we only legalized X - we’d have half as many people in prison - are probably themselves smoking X. It just ain’t so, in my opinion.

Secondly, it’s objectively true that crime statistics (which you can believe or take with a grain of salt) show that violent crime as gone down over the course of the decades. Some of that is probably due to demographics - as a rule younger people commit more crimes than older ones. But also some of this is due to incarceration of violent offenders.

To me it seems like you can have empty prisons and dangerous streets or you can have full prisons and comparatively safer streets. While nothing is all or none, all black or all white, as a general rule the more offenders you incarcerate, the fewer crimes you will have. It just makes sense. Where you draw the line is of course open to question, but relatively speaking there will be a correlation.

Number two is Russia

Number three is Uganda, of all places.

Shrugs...set an occupancy cap and when reached hang the occupants who have been there the longest to make room for new criminals. It would be a nice deterrent to crime.

Why Is the U.S. Prison Population So Large?
Because the US has a huge feral people population.

So they’ll have plenty of facilities to lock us up, after they turn the current inmates loose and hand them weapons in exchange for their fealty?
