Is it the cost of being the newest world empire to have high crime rate and now the the most prisoners in the World? or is it because they have tough sentencing laws? but why do they have such tough sentencing laws from the first place if they didn’t experience high crime rate?

CommonDream.org – WASHINGTON – US Has the Most Prisoners in the World – According to the International Centre for Prison Studies at King’s College in London, more people are behind bars in the United States than in any other country. China ranks second with 1.5 million prisoners, followed by Russia with 870,000..

I think Americans could easily ease down the number of Arab immigrant queue in the front of their embassies in Arab countries just by publishing such reports in the front of their doors.
