What do I think as someone who has education in criminology and whose wife is a Dr of Psychology & Criminology? ... People like you are risible, scary and desperately uneducated.
Do you know what the death certificate says in the case of a person executed by a state in the USA? Cause of death: Homicide.
So the state has murdered someone because that person has murdered someone .... But it is OK for the state to murder people apparently because they have the right paperwork. Which they decided was the right paperwork. Is the disgusting irony lost on you?
Then you want to murder people because it is 'cheap' ... Yet you want to be deeply moralistic. It's bizarre. Your country is burning right now because there is no decent society, there is not enough tax collected to create a decent society ... Plus of course your bully country spends vast sums on it's military ... If we take that the USA is #1 military spender every year in the world. Then look at the next 9 countries, so Russia, China, France, UK, Germany and so forth ... America spends more a year than the next 9 countries put together. But you have no effective health system .... It is sick.
You have it good in the USA? 😂 So you're white then, plus consider yourself middle class and probably think Trump is a good idea.
America is the most corrupt criminal system there is in the developed world. It has 5% of the world's population but 25% of the world's prisoners. I could explain why systemic racism has caused this in the last 25 years but what is the point.
Under 15% of the US population is African American, yet that group are 4x's more likely to be imprisoned over white Americans and 2x's when set against Hispanics ...... that is not by ratio, that is a flat number. An African American child is more likely to get a criminal record than a GED.
Talk Detroit city itself .... Almost entirely black after decades of 'white flight' .... 50% of the citizens left are functionally illiterate.
If one purposefully diverts funding to people who vote, then criminalises the losing group to majorly pay for the policing to control the issues that have been created by diverting funding initially ... Then you end up with the USA you have today.
In the USA they of course vote for a District Attorney .... Who votes? People with money, i.e those not in poverty ... Who is mostly in poverty?African Americans ... So the mostly white 'middle class' want to feel safe (which is a perception not a reality) and therefore they vote for some 'gung ho' DA.
The US 'legal' system works on bail bonds, which is a grossly unfair system for the poor of course ... Then there is the cancerous plea bargain system ... It is in the political interests of the DA office to indict anyone that moves ... Then to have their office create a ludicrous list of charges so the slightest thing can mean a 100/200/300 year indictment.
Who are facing this National Socialist style 'justice'? Mostly always the poor and in the majority poor African Americans with their public defender who has 800+ cases at a time .... So the accused is given a choice, court in a few years time and 300 yrs if found guilty or 3 years if they take the plea ... The court appointed defender makes the best recommendation "Take the plea bargain and hope to get your life back"
. So innocent or guilty they simply take the plea.
There are c.17,000 different policing authorities in the USA and up to 60% of their budget comes from fining people .... Guess who? Affluent whites? Good lord no, poor people, mostly of course African Americans ...... Do you know you can get a $200 fine for 'walking with sagged trousers in public' or you can get a $200 fine for having 'two different window coverings on windows facing a public road' ..... Academic research shows that in all US cities you can plot where the most tickets will be issued just by picking out the poor black areas.
Your country only got shot of the Jim Crow laws in the mid 1960's, laws so racist and foul they made S Africa blush ... to be replaced by the war on drugs 7 years later, which is totally racist against the same group as always - African Americans.
Don't worry I have been saying this for decades, I am not some 'Johnny come lately' ...... Be assured this diatribe of loathsome facts
can continue for pages and pages where the USA is concerned. But what's the point, you and your ilk are not listening are you.
My wife and I have lived and worked over much of the world including substantial time in 3rd world countries .... But even as Caucasian Europeans we would never even set foot in N America ... 'Arrive on vacation and leave on probation' oddly enough doesn't appeal to us.
