The U.S.--One Third of the World's Prison Inmates

Two Thirds of the World's Rapists

And One Twentieth of the World's Population

The crowning achievement of the U.S. in the year 2000 was the incarceration of more than 2.3 million of its citizens, 127,000 of whom are children.  This is an incarceration RATE 23 times greater than Japan, who has a third as many total citizens in prison for all crimes combined than we have children in prison.

Compared to Japan's total number of jail and prison inmates, a country with half our population:

bullet

We have 3 times as many children in prison than they have all citizens in prison for all crimes, combined.

bullet

We have 50% more citizens in prison just for drinking and driving.

bullet

We have 4.5 times more citizens in prison just for violating our 22,000 gun control laws.

bullet

We have 8 times as many citizens in prison just for rape and sexual assault.

bullet

If our incarceration rate was equivalent to Japan's, we would have 100,000 jail and prison inmates, rather than 2,327,000.

bullet

Conversely, our violent crime rates are only 5 times higher than Japan's.

bullet

If the US had an incarceration rate equivalent to China's, 1,943,000 of the 2 million men currently in prison wouldn't be there and American men would have spent 30 million fewer man years behind bars since 1940.

bullet

Each 2 years in prison shortens a man's life expectancy by one year, so 30 million man-years in prison is equivalent to a total shortened life expectancy of 15 million man-years, or 205,500 lives.

bullet

More than half of the 350,000 American men now in prison for rape and "sexual assault" may have been falsely accused.

bullet

Feminist jurisprudence caused a ten fold increase in the US incarceration rate, even as violent crimes like murder decreased.

bullet

While most rates decreased between 1985 and 1995, no country's incarceration rate increased as rapidly as ours.

bullet

The number of Americans in prison already exceeds the total number in 57 different countries combined.

bullet

If the US incarceration rate were commensurate with our 5x higher crime rates than many countries, there would be 1.8 million fewer Americans in jails and prisons.

bullet

False allegations filed by women against men are the main reason--DNA evidence frees an additional 12 convicted prisoners in Illinois.

bullet

The massive problem of women in law in Illinois clarifies how this happened.

bullet

This also explains why so few American women are incarcerated.

bullet

False allegations are the "Feminists' Silver Bullet", making feminism directly responsible for most of our excess prison population and an abomination before God.
