Mass Incarceration in America

Posted by GVT Admin on Aug 28, 2019 7:27:57 PM

How did the United States, with 5% of the global population but 25% of its prisoners, become home to the largest prison system in the history of the world? Some say it’s an accomplishment. The U.S. is a law and order country and our criminal justice system is the envy of the world.
