Most white Americans know that there are more Blacks in prison than whites, but they are blissfully unaware that blacks are also serving longer sentences than their white counterparts. Moreover, among nonviolent offenders blacks are more likely to be serving life sentences than whites.
I agree with a lot of the things you post but what confuses me is the existence of prisoner rights groups and such. Why do people advocate freedom/good treatment of those who deserve it least? it's one thing if it's an unjustly imprisoned POC or an impoverished thief but what about murderers, etc? I've seen groups push for them to have internet, game systems, and college education on taxpayer money! Why does that exist? Shouldn't there be a middle ground based on crime committed, or something?
