    Anyhoots, I also followed up with statistics, reality. You video is just silly emotional drivel, there is no cover up of something foul going on. Jail sucks, don't commit crimes, don't end up in jail.
    Jail sucks but to say that someone deserves to die for public drunkeness or running onto a baseball field, then you accuse socialists of being barbaric?

    I didn't say they deserve anything. However, life isn't a risk free endeavor son, **** happens.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Prison conditions have been deteriorating for years. It's a combination of the U.S. having too many laws on the books, penalties being too steep, and the transition to the for-profit prison system which places way less emphasis on rehabilitation. Private prisons are basically designed to encourage a higher recurrence rate because it's more profitable to them. Added to this, we now have an epidemic of plea bargaining where only a small fraction of accused people actually take their trials to court because the District Attorneys threaten them with huge prison time if they don't take deals.

    The system needs reform badly, bottom to top. The punitive, for-profit model is not working. We need to return to an America that values freedom and involves less nanny government.

    This. So much this.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Is this just more proof that police in this country are trying to cover something up? This is horrible and incredibly disgusting.
    I guess I just don't have a lot of compassion for murderers, rapists and Pedophiles.....That is just me though. Go get them police officers.

    And there's things we can do to minimize that risk to align more with justice, so that a nonviolent captive/prisoner isn't given a death sentence. Simply pointing out people die from other things isn't good enough.

    I posted the stats on the prison deaths, it's a non-issue. The video in the OP makes a scary drama filled tear jerking sirens call to all "caring people".

    I'm sorry, but yes it IS good enough. Society cannot waste the amount of resources required to drop prison deaths to less then 100 a month per year. **** more people die from hospital mistakes then that. More people die from drunk driving then that. More people die from old age then that. More people die from accidents a month then that.

    It sounds like you're operating on the false assumption that all cases brought by prosecutors are true and accurate. That's not the case, and DNA methods have shown how frequently cases are wrong from the start.

    There are many people sitting in prison who were framed and wrongfully convicted. The Central Park Five is a famous case of lousy prosecuting.
