Gary Zerman, I would like to comment on the below news article,

five times higher per capita than all the rest of the world.
This statistic is gleaned from statements that the U.S. has only

U.S., it is the State of South Dakota that has the highest
population per capita in prison of all states. Hence, the prison
capital of the World is South Dakota.
Further, I call to attention that when the State of South Dakota
took on its fight against the passage of J.A.I.L., it chose as
its focus the threat to South Dakota's prison population, saying
that what J.A.I.L. was seeking was to release all the felons
behind bars in South Dakota to go after the jurors who voted to
convict them, and place them behind those bars.
We also discovered that one of the State Senators had the entire
vendor business sown up within all the prisons in South Dakota.
Every time a prisoner purchased from the vending machines, he
made money, which endowed him with his fortunes..
