description
The war on drugs has been going on for more than three decades. In 1999, nearly 500,000 Americans are imprisoned on drug charges. In 1980 the number was 50,000. As a result of the incarceration obsession, the United States operates the largest prison system on the planet, and the U.S. nonviolent prisoner population is larger than the combined populations of Wyoming and Alaska. Try to imagine the Drug Enforcement Administration erecting razor wire barricades around two states to control crime and you’ll get the picture. According to the U.S. Dept of Justice, the number of offenders under age 18 imprisoned for drug offenses increased twelve fold from 1985 to 1997. In 1999, 89 percent of police departments have paramilitary units, and 46 percent have been trained by active duty armed forces. The most common use of paramilitary units is serving drug-related search warrants, which usually involve no-knock entries into private homes.
OUR COMMENTS
I can't remember seeing such a quality documentary on not necessarily what happens to prisoners while they are in jail or when they get out but rather about how putting people away for ridiculously long sentences involves many conflicts of interests. The irony is that this film about the American penal system (which is the worlds largest) is by a Dutch company.
