The founding father's of this nation were on to something great and something beautiful. The birth place of democracy and freedom made America a beacon of light and hope. But America the beautiful too often reveals itself to be America the backwards.
We are now living in a time here in America where 1 out every 100 adults are in prison. Statistic show that the crime rates HAVE NOT increased dramatically so why the rise in incarceration rates??? See, I was watching HBO's television series "The Wire". In this year's season the cops on the show are seen tampering with crime scenes where homeless people are found dead in an attempt to make it look like a serial killer is running rampant on the loose killing homeless. These cops tamper with the crime scenes in order to con the Government into funding their police department with lots more money to pay the cops more money and pay for overtime for this rise in crime. Here in real life the increase of incarceration rates can be traced to a similar type of con here in America. See the law enforcement who are hired to serve and protect, and the members of the Justice department who are serving the people to uphold justice have figured out that the more criminals they can create the more money is funded by our Government to pay the salaries, raises, overtime etc of these members of the Justice Department and the law enforcement. How else do they account for such a drastic rise in incarceration rates but no correlating drastic rise in crime rates??? America now leads the WORLD in the number of prisoners and in the incarceration rate. LEADS THE ENTIRE WORLD! 1 out of every 100 adults are in prison!!! Are u kidding me???? With so many of our hired and elected members of the Justice Department and law enforcement corrupt its no wonder this country leads the entire world in incarceration rates. It is so amazing that the ones who are supposed to being serving and protecting and upholding justice are the ones who are lying, tampering, cheating, practicing corruption and breaking their own laws. How are you as a person gonna be yelling and screaming accusing people of committing crimes and make it your mission to aggressively fight for justice when you yourself are committing corrupt acts and breaking the law in order to convict people??? You hypocrites. How many times do we turn on the news and hear about a prisoner being freed after serving 20 years or so in prison wrongly convicted for crime they did not commit??? That has to tell you that our legal system is broken. And to be leading the entire world in incarceration rates we should all be ashamed....America the backwards.
America the backwards... so what is our solution to crime? Our country's solution is to throw more people in jail. What is our solution to guns killing and gunmen killing massacres on our Universities? Our solution is to add more guns by allowing more people to bear arms and let the college students walk around with concealed guns. Are you kidding me??? Hey here's a thought...How about banning the sale of guns so that it is illegal for anyone to own guns! The answer to stop increase in gun killings is not to add more guns. The only ones who should have guns are the law and military. But no, our country adds more laws to let more people carry guns! Unbelievable! America the backwards.
In the meantime we spend so much of our resources and pour so much money into the criminal system to deal with the rise in incarceration rates. Hey here is another novel idea... How about pouring that money into the educational system so that we can teach the people not to do crimes and to educate the people so that they can get jobs. Bu no, our country focuses our funds into criminal systems instead of educational systems. How about using those same funds to teach the people criminal justice courses in our educational system so that people will know the law and know what the consequences of committing crimes are. We say we want less crimes but we don't teach the people in our schools about crimes. We teach history, math and English but we don't teach any criminal justice courses! Instead we don't teach the people anything about crimes or the law and wait till they are in front of a judge charged with a crime to teach them about crimes. I see why our corrupt system wouldn't want to teach people criminal justice because then there would be less crimes committed thus less criminal thus less funding to line the pockets of the one who work In law enforcement and the Justice Department. It's a dirty game...America the backwards
Take a look at our war efforts in Iraq. We have spent 120 billion a year fighting this war meantime our economy, infrastructure, health care, education systems and employment is suffering a mighty blow. How much sense does it make to spend this type of money to fix someone else's country when it causes our own country to fall apart??? Are you kidding me??? America the backwards. We went into Iraq to make America a safer place to live. Does our country truly think that once we pull out of Iraq that the Muslim world is going to treat us better than it did before the war? Are you kidding me??? America has stuck its hand into the hornets nest and Muslims around the world are even more angry at America now. I was in tears when 911 happened. I lost some dear friends and old teammates when the twin towers were attacked and destroyed. But the Bible says do not answer evil with evil. But America we answered evil with evil and to expect America to be safer now that we are at war with the Muslim world is not reasonable. America the backwards.
We say that we want our citizens to have jobs but meanwhile we ship a majority of our jobs overseas. NAFTA created a floodgate for our American jobs to vanish. When people can't find work guess what happens? Answer is..CRIMES are committed. And when crimes are committed guess what happens? Answer is... the judicial system gets the opportunity to incarcerate. And when incarceration rates go up guess what happens? Answer is... FUNDING GOES UP to address the incarcerated. And who gets that funding? Answer is...the people who work in law enforcement and the Justice department salaries get that funding. Do you now see the picture folks??? The whole system of shipping jobs overseas, and not pouring money into our education system and not teaching criminal justice courses in our schools, and adding more laws to allow more people to carry and own guns which cause more crimes like murder and assault, is all a corrupt system who's sole purpose is to line pockets with more money for the police officers, the prison officials and workers, the judges, the state attorneys, and the lawyers, and the politicians. If we weren't spending so many billions of dollars for the last 5 years to fight war in Iraq to fix their country, we could instead use that same money to pay our members of law enforcement and Justice departments so that they wouldn't have to participate in this corrupt system to line their pockets with more money. When is someone going to do a study to show the rate of increasing salaries of law enforcement and Justice department personnel to show the amounts of money that is pouring in due to this alarming increase of incarceration rates? I bet it will be alarming when we see the amounts of money. And cops who are found to be charged with crimes and/or convicted of abusing their power and committing crimes get suspended WITH PAY for years. So while the rest of us are being carted off to prison for crimes at an alarming rate of 1 out of every 100 adult, the cops that are found guilty of on the job crimes are getting a paid vacation by being suspended for years with pay....It is a dirty game.
