Tomorrow never comes

Story goes… Donny had a girlfriend named Tomorrow. A beautiful girl with a plain Jane quality. They were in love. Then a girl-scout came to the door on a Thursday afternoon. A cute little girl with the eyes of fox. She tells Donny about their specials, he buys 2 boxes. She says “Mister, if you pay for 2 more boxes in advance today…I will bring you 4 tomorrow.

“Well Donny loves girl-scout cookies so he does it! Next day comes…..

No girlscout no cookies. Next day, the same. He does nothing but look out the window for a whole week. He doesn’t go to work and his girlfriend said she wasn’t satisfied and broke up with him, he replied “Its not my fault.” Tomorrow never comes. Don’t put off things til tomorrow when you can do them Today.

Today is now! Live in the present, because it is a gift. Or you will be fooled by a child, that has a better understanding of such things.

getty_CAprisons630x420

In 1985 the average daily jail population of all the jails in America combined was 256,615 in 2000 it was 631,149 & in 2013 it wasa 731,000

Bail for African American people was 35% higher than White people & Hispanic people’s bail was 15% higher than White people’s

In 2012, African Americans were 13% of the U.S. population, but almost 40% of the population of jails & prisons

Latino/Hispanic people are 14% of the U.S. population, but 22% of the jail & prison population

In 1970, Non-White people were 30% of the people who were locked up, in 2012,
Non-White people were 70% of those locked up

In California, African Americans are ony 7% of the total population of the free citizens, yet they are 28% of the prison population & 45% of the people who got 3-strikes

Nationwide 47% of people with life in prison are African American, & 65% of Lifers who have non-violent convictions

In the State of Louisiana, 91% of Lifers who got non-violent convictions are African American

Nationwide 77% of the juveniles sentenced to life without parole (lwop) of the total 2,500 are African American

Prison Population by Race in 2000:
African American: 572,900
White: 436,500
Latino/Hispanic: 206,900

Prison Population by Race in 2011:
African Americans: 555,300
White: 465,100
Latino/Hispanic: 331,500

As we can see by these numbers, The incarcerated population of the U.S. keeps growing & growing. Well one could assume with the population surging, there are obviously more & more people living in this country, so that would justify the higher prison population.

But that is not true, in fact, this is an anamoly because the major & violent crime rates have been going down dramatically especially since the 90’s. So one is led to ask, if crime rates of major & violent crimes are falling, then how are more people ending up in jail? That doesn’t make sense….Next I will answer that question
