Polisstat? 40 procent av alla som fyllt 23 år i USA - har blivit arresterade minst 1 gång

2014-01-23. All Gov i USA, presenterar nya siffror om den växande amerikanska polisstaten som avslöjar att hela 40 procent av alla unga amerikaner som fyllt 23 år, har blivit arresterade minst 1gång i livet. Dessa siffror gäller oavsett ras eller bakgrund. För enbart svarta i USA gäller att nästan 50 procent arresterats och satts i fängelse minst en gång redan vid 23 års ålder...

The United States’ habit of arresting criminals has not only resulted in the world’s largest prison population, but also this: more than 40% of all men in the country are arrested by their early twenties.

This eye-opening statistic includes not just blacks and Hispanics, two groups that have endured well-documented high arrest rates, but whites as well.

The finding was produced by academics who combed through about a decade’s worth (1997-2008) of surveys conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which asks respondents if they have ever been taken into custody for an offense (excluding traffic violations).

It was found that 38% of white men, 44% of Hispanic men and 49% of black men wind up in jail at least once by age 23.

By age 18, the numbers were lower, but still startling: 30% for black men, 26% for Hispanic men and 22% for white men.

The researchers also compiled statistics for women. By age 23, 20% of blacks, 18% of whites and 16% of Hispanics were arrested at least once.

“Among criminologists, I don't think they're that surprised or alarmed by the findings,” Robert Brame, a criminology professor at the University of South Carolina and study (pdf) coauthor, told the Associated Press. “The alarm and concern is among people not as familiar with the patterns.”

Another coauthor, criminologist Shawn Bushway from the University at Albany, said that with so many Americans involved in the criminal justice system at such an early age, it would be “a serious mistake” for the nation to treat “them all as if they're hardened criminals.”

Brame said more research is being conducted on the types of arrests, as well as conviction and recidivism rates, with those results still to come.

25% av världens fångar finns i Amerikanska fängelser - moderna slavläger för minoriteter

Uppdaterat 2013-09-27. Abby Martin intervjuar Eugene Puryear om fängelsekulturen i USA. Social kontroll och massinlåsning av minoriteter i Amerika har skapat världens i särklass största antal fångar, större än exempelvis både i Kina och Iran. USA:s fängelser drivs ofta av privata företag som moderna slavarbetsläger, för både militär och civil produktion....

  1. --Secret Military Training Blurs Line Between Police and Soldiers--

    January 24, 2014

    As the military transitions into a tech-heavy force, increasingly reliant on robots and drones, local police forces are looking less like law enforcement and more like heavily armored combat units. Now, it seems they are starting to train like them, as well.
    A story published by The State newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina, reported on recent secret joint training missions between U.S. Army special forces and the Richland County (South Carolina) Sheriff’s Department.
    The article describes training exercises being conducted by “unidentified units” from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. Ft. Bragg is the home of the elite U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) and the super-secret, super-deadly Delta Force.
    A spokesman for the Richland County Sheriff’s Department refused to identify who was participating in the exercise or why it was being carried out. The department did, however, issue a press release, warning that the war games could get loud. "Citizens may see military and departmental vehicles traveling in and around rural and metropolitan areas and may hear ordnance being set off or fired which will be simulated/blanks and controlled by trained personnel," it declared.
    As for why such combat simulations were necessary, the statement explained that they were a result of “Sheriff Leon Lott's longstanding commitment to making sure that deputies are trained and prepared for every event and potential threat and his desire to assist the military to ensure their preparations.”
    This synthesis of police and military is a threat to both civil liberty and a clear distinction between the purposes of the two organizations. The integration has progressed so far, though, that even the mainstream press is taking notice.[...]
