The Leader Of The Free World …


After putting two million people in jail and behind bars, I would imagine, The US of A, would have had enough. Apparently not.

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. (via Rapper T.I. heads back to prison just one day after his release… following a trip to a halfway house on a luxury tour bus | Mail Online).

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

Much more.

    I guess police find something suspected about T.I again. That’s why they seize him again after release. Yap lot of controversy going on about this incident. But soon all of this will be fixed properly by authority. Thanks

    laws are meant to be followed not to be flaunted as it is happening in present India. The police have found it as against the provision of the law and arrested him, there is no wrong in it. true us may be having the largest prison population, but here the law has so much power that a congressman can be arrested for sending lewd messages , but what is the case with our country, politicians do so much corruption and go scott free and enjoy their black money

    our country, politicians do so much corruption and go scott free and enjoy their black money

    I have written extensively about ‘corrupt’ Indian politicians – and you can check out how Indian politicians are no better or worse then their counterparts anywhere in the world. If you have data which shows that US politicians are any less corrupt, please share it.

    The problem is the huge powers and activities of the State under Desert Bloc systems systems – like socialism, capitalism or communism. The answer is negotiated ‘freedom’ as in भारत-तंत्र Bharat-tantra

    laws are meant to be followed not to be flaunted as it is happening in present India. The police have found it as against the provision of the law and arrested him, there is no wrong in it. true us may be having the largest prison population, but here the law has so much power

    After so many years of using the ‘nail-em-and-jail-tem’ approach, why is crime not reducing in these societies. Why is the ‘Developed World’ also the leader in imprisoning people? Why is Law being equalled to the status of divinity? Why should Laws be followed? Why not break Laws? Like for instance, what Julian Assange is doing?

    Any approach to crime must look at crime reduction – and not increased compliance with increasing number of laws.

    It is like the shariat logic. If cutting of hands, legs, fingers, heads solved problems, the Islamic worlds would not have crime.

    Can you seriously justify imprisoning a young man for taking bus instead of a van? I am still trying to understand, Did Rapper TI have to go back to jail for taking a ‘bus’ instead of a ‘van’?

    Probably, my understanding deficient.
