US Prison System

Granlund, Dave. "US Prison System." Dave Granlund Cartoons, Jul 2012, https://www.davegranlund.com/cartoons/2012/07/24/us-prison-system/.

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.
