O 2, Friday, 7:00pm -9:00pm, Why does the U.S. have the most people in prison?
2969 Mission St (nr. 24th Street BART)
Why does the “land of the free” have more people in prison—in both absolute numbers and percentage of the population—than any other country in the world? With just 5% of the world’s people, the U.S. has 25% of all prisoners! One out of every 50 people is behind bars or “in the system”—on parole or probation.
Who goes to jail in the U.S. today and who doesn’t? What role is the relationship between the capitalist system and the criminal “justice” system?
