New High In U.S. Prison Numbers

I don't think that people recognize the massive prison industrial complex that makes lots of $.

More than one in 100 adults in the United States is in jail or prison, an all-time high that is costing state governments nearly $50 billion a year and the federal government $5 billion more, according to a report released yesterday.

A necessary evil? I don't know, but somebody is gettin' paid lovely off this. Read more about this problem here.
