US Prison System

Granlund, Dave. "US Prison System." Dave Granlund Cartoons, Jul 2012,

This political cartoon accurately depicts the endless cycle that many victims of the US prison system find themselves stuck in. Of the more than a dozen prisoners I have had discussions with, only two of them claim that this is their first time being incarcerated. It is a well-known fact that the United States recidivism rate is among the highest in the world, and it's clear that our "Correctional " Facilities are not doing a sufficient job of "correcting" our prisoners' behavior.
