The United States Prison System

Thank you to AlterNet for sharing this YouTube video. This is an important, yet often overlooked issue in our country today.

Many people feel that people are imprisoned for wrong doings not worthy of imprisonment. And the length of sentences is also up for debate. Mandatory minimum sentencing puts everyday citizens behind bars for extended periods of time - costing the US more money than what would be a more reasonable budget.

Whatever your viewpoint is, you need to watch this video.
