Everything is wrong with this chart


Drug offenses and immigration "crimes" are both ludicrously high.

Despite the tens of thousands of cases of fraud that helped cause the banking crisis and recession, virtually no one is incarcerated in that category.

Literally 0.0% of the US prison system is dedicated to national security prisoners. That's not because there aren't any – it's because they're all held in military bases in foreign countries where little inconveniences like the rule of law don't get in the way.

Oh my fuck.

On a slightly lighter note, David Simon has agreed to do another season of The Wire if the US agrees to end to the drug war.


  1. Is "oh my fuck" really a sentence? But yeah I agree that this is very fucked up.

  2. Wow, that's stunning.
