Rural America faces highest incarceration rates, not black city centers
Seems odd that a country based on white privilege would "treat" its rural whites so bad

But but but system is racist!!!!!!

NBC

The researchers at Vera and the Safety and Justice Challenge broke out jail data from 1,936 rural counties — those with fewer than 250,000 people — and found that pretrial incarceration rates had jumped from 49 per 100,000 people in 1970 to 265 per 100,000 people in 2013.

By comparison, the pretrial incarceration rate in urban counties rose from 101 per 100,000 people to 200 per 100,000 people, and from 39 per 100,000 people to 178 per 100,000 people in suburban localities, according to the researchers.
"For a rural area to double or triple the size of its jail is unheard of in urban areas," Kang-Brown said. "No one is proposing we build a larger jail in New York City. But it's common for a rural county to go from 30 beds to 70 beds. That is part of the growth."

Controlling for all things, that may be accurate. But the greater point is that we are the incarceration capital of the world, per capital, regardless of race.

Imagine the difference conservative news outlets could make by addressing these issues head on. Doesn't play as well as the black/brown boogeymen stories I suppose....sad.

Strange. Isn't that most of Trump's voter base?

This. The land of the free happens to also be the land of the jailed.

If we would quit drawing lines in the sand over race and attempt to address this problem as Americans, we may actually get something done.

Is a huge issue that needs to be fixed.

Way too often it's abused for financial reasons that have little to do with justice.

Yes, and it makes sense why they voted him in.

That segment has been getting shite upon for years, but they don't have the backing or support because they aren't a privileged group.

The Trump vote was the big middle finger.

How did they define "pretrial incarceration"?

Why use that modifier?

What about minorities in urban counties, or better yet minorities in city limits (since many 'urban' counties contain both city and rural areas?

Let us know when you have those numbers. Thanks in advance, champ.

I know that is what the statistics say, but I'm not sure I trust the numbers of other countries. Regardless, our numbers are way too high. Only a select few criminals really ever need to be locked up - restitution or public corporal punishment are far better punishments than incarceration.

People jailed pretrial. I.e. those that cant get out on bond/bail.

So the uneducated bunch of yokels thought electing a billionaire who has made a living out of shitting on the little guy would solve their problems?

They got what they deserved.

Why is high incarceration rates a "bad" thing? If we have that many people breaking the law, putting them in jail isn't bad.

We need to look at why so many people are breaking the law (culture, unemployment, etc.)

They took a chance voting in an outsider.

Why would they continue to vote in the same people who shite on them on the political stage for years?

HRC insulted them frequently. The Democratic Party basically told that segment of society to frick off.

The Republicans couldn't give a crap about them.

Look at it however you like.
