A friend of mine sent me the following link today. http://mediastudy.com/articles/incarceration.html I'm not quite sure what to make of it. Up here in Canada, the general reaction to stuff like this is "well, it is America, afterall...", but I'd like to get some American (or even international) perspective on this. What are your thoughts on the War on Drugs? How about US incarceration rates? The policy of diverting education and social spending to fund prisons?
