They are in jail because we have harsh laws on drugs that drive people insane as well as other factors that contribute to them towards doing these illegal acts, when in many other countries, these drug laws don't exist. They give people daily dosages of "stimulants" that allows them to go on with their days, not chemically mass produced versions that "ARE" addicting, that "ARE" medically bad for you, and are rightfully considered as drugs.

Its a BUISSNESS being run for a PROFIT by PRIVATE CORPORATIONS , There is no Justice because the LAWYERS AND JUDGES are CORRUPT  and FOR SALE , THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN !!!!!!
Metcraft (3 года назад)
most people in jail and prison are in for non-violent drug related offences and were from very low income areas. They feel they have no hope of improving there situations except to sell drugs. Most never would have turned to that if they had hope of a better life through a good job. But when no one will higher you then they feel hopeless and turn to what seems their only hope. I pray that Mr. Sanders gets elected. His plans for creating good jobs with good benefits like by improving infrastructure would greatly reduce the number of inmates. When unemployment goes down so does crime. ofc this wont eliminate crime but would reduce it.

These are the results of a drug fueled, policy driven Arms-Race, in which both sides (The Public & The Police) support easy access to and availability of superior weapons and fire power for their cause... The-W.A.R. On Society has been escalating admits this arms race for decades. The results of using a Militarized Criminal Justice $ystem to deal with prohibition, general policing, mental illness and homelessness. The unwillingness of a Social $ystem to protect and provide for the least among them, is their greatest shame and downfall... It's not rocket science... To affect change in a Corporate controlled government, it must be confronted when and where it hurts the $ystem most... Watch4The*Sign... C.H.A.O.S.
PeaceProfit (3 года назад)
The $ystem adapts to easily circumvent what it has already encountered... protesters, rehashed policy, media pressure, etc. Think tanks are 20 years ahead of the people's actions. Real change MUST empower The*People... If any author, pundit, politician or citizen truly wanted to shift the national debate... They would be talking about empowering The*People via 'Individual Directed Capitalization' 'My*1040' Because the ONLY peaceful way to change this $ystem, is to control your MONEY. iDC - My*1040 - 65% of YOUR tax contribution directed toward funding government spending in areas of YOUR CHOICE. 35% directed by elected represenitives to avoid critical funding gaps that might evolve. You-R-Denied your Capital*Rights... It's your labor, your money, your choice. Currently corporate controlled represenitives, spend 75% of every tax dollar to maintain the Global MIC, world conflict and subsidizes which The*People seem NOT to desire and 100% toward keeping it that way. iDC - My*1040 - It's a beginning that will change everything... Something the average citizen/voter would embrace and understand. Tea Party, Coffee Party, Any Party, ask them this, would you like a direct say in how the government spends your money. Any Politician, ask them this, will you deny The*People the right to directly affect how a portion of their tax 'contribution' is used. Simply... Trust The*People by empowering them with fiscal control over elected officials. Time4Change Watch4The*Sign... C.H.A.O.S.

+Bud Fields (PPTS) And in your 30 years of effort the underwhelming result of protest, policy, media pressure etc. has created the current situation... Which another 30 years of the same thing, the same way, will produce the same result. More Street Entertainment for the police and fodder for the media, military and politicians. Your seeming analysis of future costs, is staggeringly devoid of the reality of suffering that has ensued. Unless The*People are empowered to represent their own interest, change will continue to underwhelm. Watch4The*Sign...

Over 2 million people in jail, more people than China, an authoritarian nation with a population 4 times our own. Sickening, shameful, a disgrace, but most of all, a crime against humanity.
Bud Fields (3 года назад)
No, your assertion is not supported by legal precedence. You may infer that, in the example you cite, "enslavement" is equal to "incarcerated", but I would disagree with the inference. So would, unfortunately, the law. I would refer you to your first two sentences in your reply to my comment. How's that for brevity?
jkircher314 (3 года назад)
+Bud Fields (PPTS) With all due respect, sir, you do not know me, my actions, nor anything else about me. Please refrain from directing your rhetoric unnecessarily, lest you look ridiculous due to your excessive, ill directed verbiage. Since 'enslavement' is included in the definition of crimes against humanity, and since prisoners in the US are farmed out to perform labor for pennies a day to corporations like Whole Foods, it is apparent that unnecessary, racially driven imprisonment does, in fact, qualify as a crime against humanity.
Bud Fields (3 года назад)
+jkircher314 No, not be definition is it a crime against humanity. Know your terms, lest you be seen a fool. Besides, it negates everything else you so rightly say here. The difference is, there is hope. You are that hope. What are YOU going to do about it? What is it, really? It is a crime against humans, but much more importantly, it is a crime against your fellow American citizen. And, there is a place where you can become the change you seek. It's just simply not enough to sadly "Tsk, tsk!" while shaking your head. This is the fertile soil for democracy to act. What will your feet do to oppose this inhumanity? Will you remain a sidelined spectator to this travesty? Will you put your conviction to work, and find other citizens willing to do the same? Until you act in a legal, ethical and moral way to put an end to this injustice, you are not part of the solution--you remain part of the problem. I know, it sounds cliche. But, it really is the truth. YOU can change this. That's what Senator Sanders is saying to you. I agree with him wholeheartedly.

Candide Thirtythree (3 года назад)
There was once something called Corrupt Practices acts that said that justice can never be turned over into the hands of profiteers. It was during the times of Charles Dickens when there were work houses and debtor prisons and all sorts of horrors that we have read about in that great literature. There is no JUSTICE in our criminal justice system. There are many innocent people in jail right now who were plucked off the streets on trumped up charges and literally 'SOLD' to those private prisons! It happens to people too poor to afford a lawyer and it happens because judges are getting kickbacks from those private-for-profit prisons. Several judges have already gone to prison for this but those were just the ones who have been caught so far.
Bud Fields (3 года назад)
+Candide Thirtythree Wow! You have said much in few words. :) There is, I would contend, much Justice in our Criminal Justice system, and much more than there once was. It is not justice we read or hear about, though. It is the miscarriage of Justice. I don't want to paint with too broad a brush, because those who are honorably carrying out the mandates of the Criminal Justice System in our land do so daily, and generally ask nothing in return. However... Private prison administration has already proven itself to be not only more expensive by several orders of magnitude, but it has reinforced, throughout the legal and corrections communities the confirmation that such schemes are more criminal than those prisoners they administer. This whole, entire notion of private prison/corrections administration programs is a vulgarity, anathema to the idea of corrections, and justice in this country. You are correct that history should have taught us this lesson without the necessity of the outrageous costs we are currently having to endure in time, talent and treasure. Knowing that, in order to "win" a private administration contract, the State or other authorizing entity must (at least so far as CCA's contracts are concerned) GUARANTEE a minimum of 85% capacity rates (or face incredible penalties which the state, etc. must immediately pay) over a 20 year period speak to the truest nature of this entire proposition. Vulgar becomes completely unacceptable. Yet, most American citizens do not know even this simple reality concerning private prison administration schemes. What is the motive, therefore to rehabilitate? What is the motivation to reduce inmate populations? None. It is a grotesque and evil profiteering in the name of lowered state prison costs. Laughable. It must end. (Tennessee, my state, has two of the largest criminal enterprises within this putrid arena. It would be unbelievably expensive to do away with them. Many jobs, and an amazing number of this State's citizens are not only unaware, but unwilling to become aware of this terrible cancer upon our State. Most cops are honest. Most Judges are trying to be honorable. Against the unenviable position of a state literally run and owned by ALEC, against the citizens who are mostly just trying to get alone, lies the inevitable battle ground. This isn't "just" a black problem, or a "white" problem, +Candide. This is truly an American problem. Only Americans can fix it. That we MUST do.

Not too familiar with the American justice system/private penitentiaries (Canadian), was wonder how it exactly works, being privatized. How do they get money out of it? does the government give money depending on the amount of inmates? Almost like a quota or commission?

+Ogre Dan The Gingrich era congress allowed it they're also responsible for college debt permanently except from being discharged in bankruptcy turning many graduates into modern day serfs.
Bud Fields (3 года назад)
+Ogre Dan Sorry, Ogre. As the commenter above, you are mistaken regarding the onset of this programs. They began during the GWB administration. The entire concept was created by the American Legislative Exchange Council, and "tested" in several strongly conservative Republican State administrations. The 'carrot' was the ability to move prison administration budgets to more preferred activities. The 'stick' was the requirement that any state having such a contractual agreement must agree to a minimum of 85% capacity populations for the entire duration of the contract, generally 20 years.

Not to even mention fptp. That's just the observation of a British kid so I may be completely wrong

Can you for once I beg of you for once actually site something not automatically biased? I am pretty sure at this point you are a troll. The fact that no matter what is fact checked and given to you on a silver platter in any argument I've had with you or have seen you in, you continue to repeat yourself without siting any credible sources to back up anything you say.

+Freedom Fighter I can take him seriously because every last thing he proposes has had a bill put before congress. Every last proposal he has mentioned actually has a physical representation. They have had all the math done and are open for all to read and see. This is the complete opposite of every other candidate because none of them offer any kind of details about anything they propose.
adam smith (3 года назад)
the issue of the corrupt justice system for private profit goes beyond for profit prisons. another issue that should be addressed is the law enforcement officers being held to meet a quota to keep their job. this pushes law enforcement to jump into an "everyone is guilty of something" type of mindset and that is when law enforcement oversteps their boundaries as an officer of the peace.
Bud Fields (3 года назад)
+adam smith Most of those I have ever known to speak this view have been Police Officers. Are you? My only doubt comes from you speaking of "quotas". I'd never serve any force that tried to impose "quotas" on it's officers, and I've never met anyone who would voluntarily stay in one if they were not corrupt in the first place. The trouble is, I cannot objectively castigate your statement absolutely because I do well know the potential of it's becoming true in an instant. Ergo, the old argument about Civilian Review Boards. The shame is, that in most forces where that particular argument is used, the result is that there is absolutely NO oversight or review--at all. Most brothers I know would prefer a CRB to zero, every time. It keeps the honest honorable, and helps to clear out the evil in the corners. Fidelitas!

The US prison-industrial complex. Goes hand in hand with the un-winnable “war on drugs” (war on some drugs). “Prison Equals Opportunity!”—a series of road signs I saw in the early 2000’s around where I lived in central Pennsylvania. The same working-class Pennsylvanians whose grandfathers were proud blue-collar employees in the powerhouse of America’s former manufacturing economy (long since outsourced overseas) would become “corrections officers”, corralling their fellow Americans into zoo-like jails for profit.

+dylan light Yay, Dylan! :) Executive Orders are the principal weapons for independent, individual Presidential action. But, much more importantly, it is the citizen who wields the most power in this country. Require your electeds to carry out the vision shared by Sanders and yourself. Find (or create) grassroots organizations that share that vision. Contribute to them with your time, talent and treasure. VOTE! Get one other citizen to do the same. Rinse. Repeat. Take your lead from those whose opinions you trust (not so difficult to find as you might at first believe) and support them with your dollars, your written/spoken words, and the actions of your feet. Legally, morally, and ethically you can be the change you seek. That's true here in America, no matter what others might try to make you believe. YOU are the difference! :)
reelreeler (3 года назад)
+dylan light   Great to have your vote! Regarding policy changes Bernie has previously said that after he becomes president he will continue to depend on grassroots momentum, and call upon people-power to get things changed. He said that President Obama's big mistake was thinking he could work with obstructionist legislators in Congress.  Bernie Sanders has a clear vision of his goals and how to attain them, but it can only happen with energized people on his side.  Just look how far Bernie has come without the money of billionaires and Super-Pacs. Look how far Bernie has come with the media willfully ignoring him and only talking about Hillary. He is the right person for the times and he is on a roll.  *Bernie Sanders 2016*

I like Bernie, a lot, but I don't see it really being possible to redefine the capitalistic approach to social norm us Americans enjoy. Even though in nature, this comment is controversial, I still maintain that Nazi Germany's socialism was very strong (minus Hitler's intl politics!) but whereas we have serious problems that do not exist in socialist regimes, our own form of greed with our way of doing things needs a very serious overhaul that would most likely not be possible without a world changing domestic Event (N. Korea threats maybe?). I guess what I'm trying to say is, is before we can change we need to triage and staunch our wounds that we keep self inflicting.
Will Elsasser (3 года назад)
+Bud Fields (PPTS) Yea hind sight vision is 20/20 unfortunately. Regardless of who wins and what happens, I still think some sort of governmental reboot is in order however. The country post 2000 (turn of millenia) has been nothing but mistakes after mistakes and has been so far a very jaded century to date with how politicians have been insipid and the way they treat this country.
Bud Fields (3 года назад)
+Political Vape If one were to view it just a little differently, I believe it could be reasonably achieved in a short time. Not, perhaps an end result, but indeed a powerful turning, beginning. Even at this late date, if we were to understand the difference between the costs of such decisions today versus the costs later, we might actually have the ability to empower our citizens to demand such a change. It would be painful, for certain. But this pain could be overcome, and could even eventually go away. I'm not nearly so optimistic about the choice to wait until further down the road.

Department of Corrections in Idaho had privatized a large new Prison in their system. It resulted in several lawsuits one recently settled out of court, costing taxpayers large sums of money. The Prison will be turned back over to the State. An interesting side note, the company that lobbied for privatization was also a large contributor to the campaign of our Republican Governor who also allowed for privatization of our Internet systems throughout Idaho which also ended in a disaster including another lawsuit. These were both bad ideas, wasted time and money while putting staff and offenders in harms way. It also damaged the education process as well and wasted important funding.

For profit prisons... who would of thought we would lock up more people than anywhere on earth? The U.S. has 5% of the worlds population while it has a staggering 25% of the worlds prison population. That is the horrific stat that should scare the piss out of you. Love you Mr. Sanders! Keep up the good fight so we can live in a country that isn't THE LAND OF THE PRISONERS.
Headless Eyes (3 года назад)
Yes, but I can argue why that is (the lowering of crime which is not quite true at all) in my cases over 2 decades. False stats.
Cam Newton (3 года назад)
+Headless Eyes Well in that case, he says in the video that it is his opinion that Corporations should not be able to profit from making more prisons and keeping more people there. He introduced legislation today that would curb this in two years. The corporations are taking our tax money and lobbying congress for longer prisons sentences! I will note there has been less crime over the years with more people going to prison for it. Hell, judge's have been caught locking up minors at alarming rates over petty crimes due to this!

Putting a profit margin behind locking people up is a horrible idea that is leading the county into ruin.

+Cameron Newton In truth there is a portion who need to be there. We are not letting killers and those types of crimes run free. That would be insane. A lot of those ones are not able to rehabilitate.

I wish bernie would change his mind set on Palestine and Israel ..... Israel is occupying Palestine and Bernie always seems to Defend Israel
Bridge (3 года назад)
+ZeitgeisterOm He respects Israel's right to exist and I may disagree with him on the two-state solution (I think the West Bank should be integrated and everyone given full citizenship) - but Bernie is no friend of Netanyahu and his Likud Party - which is important.

+ZeitgeisterOm He refused to come to a dinner, where Netanyahu was invited, so he isn't very pro-Israel (only the government, of course not all people)

It's sad that his thoughts are just really common sense. Should be the way he wants it already.

+BLTspace But it also shows how much possibility to do the right thing is, as well. The American citizen is a very difficult place to put 100% of your faith in politics. Bernie is doing precisely that, and is not getting the action his campaign will need to survive and win. If his campaign is the possibility to revitalization of the American dream in the USA, I would rather do my utmost to see him win--for that reason alone. Goodness knows, it is not to be found anywhere else.

+MoonCrumpets not only should we eradicate the private prison racket, we need to hold responsible those who knew better and yet allowed this vast crime against humanity to flourish...this is no small thing...restitution and atonement must happen,one way or another,and this could and does apply to so many other crimes,it's not simply 'white collar crime',there are real laws that should still apply,only they've been so selectively enforced,that it makes a joke of the whole thing almost...it's a nightmare,i mean who would dare to want to be the president,bernie seems up to the challenge,i say more power to him~! perhaps we can be very forgiving,if only our 'leaders' would quickly and clearly demonstrate they're trying to be honest,they should be scared ,i mean with such guilty consciences as some of the more-human types should be carrying around... i'm afraid in too many cases,there's not a shred of remorse or even an idea that they've done any harm,when it's all on the record!

+Webshooters1 Not to look too far ahead of the present game, but it seems to me that the Sanders campaign is going to have to win South Carolina to "earn" legitimacy by the voters and MSM. I don't care who is running, or how they would like to put a spin on things. This is a fact for me. The Clinton campaign has rightly focused much of their effort on getting good press in SC, but most of it is vacuous to me. Bernie is solid. What he is, he is all the way. I like that. If he can somehow figure out how to get the citizens of SC into his camp, he could truly win it all.

Everybody needs to buck up and DO not SAY! Make sure you vote for Bernie in the primaries, in a lot of states you have to be registered as Democrat only to vote him in so read up on that. Then we must vote the republicans out of the senate so Bernie can create the change he wants when he is elected. This is why Obama is trashed, in reality republicans pretty much make it so he can't do his job. We need to get involved and educated! This is very well the most important election of our time!

+tinfoilhatter Yeah, don't bileave the mainstream pundits. They have a vested interest in painting Bernie as a radical left-winger BUT as you have seen, his policies are actually in-sync with that of the people of this nation. Look I'm gonna keep it real here, he's got an uphill battle ahead of him and NATIONALLY Hilary is still leading with Bernie at 20% but in New Hampshire and recently Iowa he's caught up and surpassed Hilary and if he keeps this up and wins those states then he does stand a chance.

It still amazes me that in the age of the internet, we're still so grossly misinformed about what is _actually_ happening around us. Willful ignorance is an epidemic of the information age. :-/

+Teef Can you make a Vine that tells people to register as Democrat before the new year, then vote for Bernie on March 1st in the Primaries? That is literally *_the only thing we need_* to get him into office. If he beats Hillary in the Primary, he'll demolish any Republican that goes up to bat. And most people can change their affiliation online. As an Independent voter, I intend to re-register as Independent after the primaries are over (it's allowed, so why not?).

+Derik DaSilva I'm pleased to know that you are stepping out upon your citizenship! :) There is a very old saying: "All after "but" is BS!" To be aware of the circumstances and sacrifices of your willingness, and to share them is a very good thing. l applaud your Dad's determination--and yours. In that regard, I do agree with you (from my luxurious position as observer!) that "it" continues. Sometimes, knowing the big picture can be helpful; sometimes not so much. You have chosen to follow your Dad's example in another way, as well. You are committing to something larger than yourself. Nobody ever said citizenship was either free, cheap or easy. Just worth it. You might be comforted to know that you are not alone in this struggle. I too am a volunteer, disabled and living on an extremely limited budget in my daily life. I do what I can, where I can, as I can. That is my advice to anyone wanting to be an active participant in our democracy. Do what you can, where you can, as you can; have faith that your efforts are sufficient. You cannot overcome the greased lightning of the lobbyist industry. But perhaps, by publicly stating your unwillingness to be controlled by them in your life, you will cause someone else to consider, as you do, the inherent "wrongness" of it, and dare to step up and be counted as well. Wouldn't that be just grand? I know for myself, it would be, indeed. :) Nice to meet you, and I do look forward to your success, both now and in the future. I'm glad you are here.

People are sick and tired of the sam old policies that are not working for anyone besides the rich. Enough is enough....There is no democracy here, there is no equality here. When I live in  a perfect neighborhood, and 2 miles down houses are falling apart, and people do not have anything to eat, well there is something very wrong with our system.
