Thank you. It's sad that we (the US) sometimes has more in common with some 3rd-World despots than the Industrialized World, like our prison population.
We not only have it in common .. we lead the way Brewman in despotic actions concerning our citizenry.. ...what we need now is decriminalization of things like marijuana..and treatment for those addicted..we have lost 2 generations to prison, so much so that in some areas it has become a rite of passage. Just sets my hair on fire when I think about it.. and the only thing worse is that three strikes law ..
There is a basic lack of humanity and no common sense in these laws..
