No Help Wanted

By Hopewell

I’m honestly torn. People always tell me how horrible the criminal justice system is and that we should make reforming it our first priority but I’m just not sure. The U.S imprisons more of its citizens than any other country. We have 2.4 million behind bars. China has four times more people than the U.S, but only 1.6 million prisoners. Of course, black men make up an ungodly amount of that population- around 35%. Blacks collectively comprise about 40%of total inmate population. This is especially troubling when put into a historical perspective.
