Isn’t it curious that the Land of the Free supposedly has more people locked-up.
Than any other nation.

This is with a free education system and all the trimmings.
In the U.S there were 2.03 million incarcerated people.
Or some, 701 per 100,000 population.

Whereas, China which is regularly castigated and has a mostly uneducated population.
The figures are 1.51 million incarcerated.
Or some, 117 per 100,000.

According to these figures the U.S jails 6 times more people than China.

Curious.

China is well-known for not accurately reporting is prison population, a trait they share with most authoritarian regimes.
"Justice prevails... evil justice."

They're locked up because they committed crimes there's a difference between freedom and license.

Those figures probably reflect  harsher penal sentencing in China in other words deterrence is a factor.

Frankly, you're just another troll, pretty much on the level of Kbay with better Google fu.
