Democracy or hypocrisy?

Land of the free?

The United States has decided to give the world
democracy. Their version of democracy if it's anything
like in the United States will involve imprisoning 1 in
every 32 persons on the planet. It's official, the
United States imprisons more people than any other
country on the face of the planet. Even more than China
and Russia.

http://articles.news.aol.com/news/_a/us-imprisons-more-people-than-any-other/20061209111509990004 (This article, will most likely disappear from aol in 2
weeks.)

It is reported that [quote]A U.S. Justice Department
report released on November 30 showed that a record 7
million people -- or one in every 32 American adults --
were behind bars, on probation or on parole at the end
of last year. Of the total, 2.2 million were in prison
or jail.[/quote]

[quote]"The United States has 5 percent of the world's
population and 25 percent of the world's incarcerated
population. We rank first in the world in locking up
our fellow citizens," said Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug
Policy Alliance, which supports alternatives in the war
on drugs.
"We now imprison more people for drug law violations
than all of western Europe, with a much larger
population, incarcerates for all offenses."[/quote]

The thing not mentioned in the article in the
disproportionate amount of ethnic minorities that are
behind bars in the United States.

[quote]The figures reveal the continuing, extraordinary
magnitude of minority incarceration and the stark
disparity in their rates of incarceration compared to
those of whites. Out of a total population of 1,976,019
incarcerated in adult facilities, 1,239,946 or 63
percent are black or Latino, though these two groups
constitute only 25 percent of the national population.4
The figures also demonstrate significant differences
among the states in the extent of racial disparities.

Can the world also expect the same targeting of other
minorities and incarcarations?

That begs the question when you say democracy to the
world, what do you really mean by this? Because it
appears that many people in the country due to over
zealous war on drug laws are in jail or out on parole.

(More than likely as lifelong slaves of the snitch
program that is so rapidly taking over American
society.) http://www.slate.com/id/2132092/

How can you give the world democracy when many in
society are incarcerated and will never know freedom
again? http://november.org/thewall/wall/wall.html

I think it's hypocritical to try to bring the world
democracy, until you take a real look at the situation
that is happening and has been happening for some time
in the country. If democracy really means 1 in 32
people will be imprisoned or out on parole, what kind
of democracy will you be offering, and will it really
be the kind that the world wants or the world needs?
