-The United States has the largest percentage of its citizens behind bars. Over 2 million people in the US are in penitentiaries.

-About 20% of the prison population is composed of inmates who have been incarcerated for drug charges and who are not violent offenders.

-The average annual operating cost per inmate is about $62 per day and $22,600 per year.

-The U.S. has 5% of the worlds population and 25% of the world's prison population.


Strangely enough communities have become dependent upon the prison industrial complex as the only source of employment and the incarceration of criminals is the only source of generating revenue.
