A new report highlights the 10 states with the highest incarceration rates in the U.S. and they all have one thing in common: all 10 went to Trump in the 2016 election.
It’s clear that these states take law & order seriously and they intend to enforce their laws on criminals who break laws.
The United States has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world.
Currently, there are currently 2.2 million people in prison or jail, and according to data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the U.S. incarcerated 471 people per every 100-thousand in 2014.
Particularity in the South, incarceration rates are extremely high.
States like Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and Oklahoma have some of the highest incarceration rates.
Out West, Arizona also finds itself in the top 10 states with the highest number of people behind bars.
In 2014, a shocking 816 per 100,000 people in Louisiana were in prison.
Seems fitting that the Bayou state is nicknamed the “prison capital of the world.”
In voting for Trump they sent a clear message that they want to reduce crime and that they expect the nation’s laws to be enforced!
Will other states finally get the message and make sure their citizens are protected by the law?
