USA is a Political Police State

The numbers are amazing. The USA leads the World Prison Population List with two million prisoners. The United States has the highest prison population rate in the world, some 686 per 100,000 of the national population (according to the US Bureau of Justice Statistics). In comparison, China – a country often targeted upon human rights issues by the American media – has just 111 prisoners for every hundred thousand people, just 16% of the American ratio. The Police State of Israel – see The Cross of Bethlehem - has just 153 prisoners for every hundred thousand people. It is so amazing I want to repeat the data: the USA approaches 700 people imprisoned for every hundred thousand inhabitants.
Strangely enough, American politicians – at least those in Washington – are quiet about this. Moreover, the American electorate doesn’t seem to care, maybe because most of them ignore the facts. The American media doesn't comment upon them while attacking Chinese human rights issues. Yet, they claim being a balanced media.
What is the explanation of this horror? If the American judiciary system claims nothing is wrong and that they are just doing their job, then that implies something is intrinsically wrong with the American people. Do American judges claim Americans are Natural Born Criminals? Or do they claim the American educational system leads to a life of crime? This is as ridiculous as claiming the judiciary system of all other countries is inefficient. Finally, America is truly Number 1 - Numero Uno - leading over Mexico, Ecuador and even Grenada. Indeed, Land of the Free. Cayman Islands fall short behind the US, with just 664 prisoners for every hundred thousand people. Watch out America, you may soon be only second in this list!
If these are not the reasons behind the mass-imprisonment of Americans by their own government, then what's going on? Is something wrong in the American courts? Maybe, the true reason is open for all of us to see. Does the USA keep the Separation of Powers that is essential to the proper function of a modern state? The very obvious classification of American judges upon partisan lines tells us that not. The American judiciary system is an extension of its political system and subordinated to it; its judges have been degraded to mere politruks – Soviet political officers - cleansing society from undesired opinions. We, the People, say to the American leadership search for your noble roots; stop enslaving the world and your own people.
