After putting two million people in jail and behind bars, I would imagine, The US of A, would have had enough. Apparently not.
Will one more make a difference? (Cartoon by Steve Greenberg; courtesy - cartoonstock.com). Click for source image.
There is something to this
The Leader of The Free World, The USA, has the largest prison population in the world.
Just why do so many people need to be in prison?
Just why does this Land of the Free have so much crime?
Why is the Leader of The Free World also the global capital of drug addicts?
Why does have the highest per-capita of prostitutes in the world?
With two million people in jail, the largest prison population in the world, law authorities would be reluctant to add more prisoners. The US of A would have had enough, one would think.
After spending 10 months in custody for a drug conviction rapper T.I headed straight back to jail, last night. The 30-year-old star was taken back into federal custody after he was transported in a luxury tour bus.
Cameras were recording the rapper as he was traveling to southern state as part of a documentary he is filming for VH1, which will chronicle his comeback from his prison time. According to authorities, inmates still under custody in low or medium security are allowed to travel in transport without an escort from prison to halfway houses, but they must specify what type of vehicle they will be using.
According to reports, T.I. did not disclose the exact nature of his method of transport, mentioning to officials he was traveling in a van instead of a party bus.
Meanwhile, the rapper’s wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle, has been left furious about the situation, and told that police officials knew about her husband’s mode of transport and even posed for pictures with the rapper in front of the bus.
She said that they: ‘Walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life.’. She believes that they should have said something before he left the Arkansas prison. ‘This is a bunch of bulls**t … they should have said something before he got on the bus … T.I. would have politely gotten into a van,’ she said.

Did Rapper TI have to go back to jail for taking a ‘bus’ instead of a ‘van’? There is more to this.
