    Per capita yes. Mostly minorities. Don't go there yet. Mainly drugs. Legalize em all I say. Put the prison industrial complex out of business.

    In fact, the US prison population increased to 2220000+ adults by 2013,
    according to US Bureau of Justice statistics.

    The USA has a prison population significantly larger than China's.
    China's total population is more than four times the USA's.
    The USA incarcerates people at a rate more than six tines China's.

    I suppose we could reduce our prison population by sentencing drug offenders to death and summarily executing them. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/dec/18/thousands-china-watch-executed-sport-stadium

    Kquinn909 seems too stupid to comprehend the statistics or eager to deny that they exist.

    Country Prison Population Population per 100,000
    USA 2,193,798 737
    China 1,548,498 118

    Even though China's population (1.4 billion+) is more than four times the USA's population (325 million+),
    the USA's prison population is more than 40% larger than China's prison population.
    The USA incarcerates people at a rate more than six times (737 / 118 = 6.25) that of China.

    The troll No1Marauder resorts to more implied nonsense.
    Even if everyone executed in China were sent to prison instead, that would only slightly
    increase China's prison population, still leaving it more than 40% smaller than the USA's.

    Why don't more Americans seem proud of their law enforcement and justice system's
    ability to catch and punish criminals in much greater numbers than any other country?

    Don't most proud Americans consider their law enforcement and justice system to be the best in the world?
