Ok, you sleeping sheep On this nigger day let me awaken you even more why kids are in prison. Kids not just adults.
The US throws 100,000 children into adult jails and prisons every year…No9w American sheep keep in mind these kids are under the age of 18… Free America? Ok if you think so…

Every year in the United States, an estimated 250,000 children under the age of 18 are tried, sentenced or imprisoned as adults. And of these, around 100,000 actually end up in adult jails and prisons, with many spending time in solitary confinement. This is despite the fact that the US Supreme Court has agreed that children are less deserving of blame than adults and usually deserve a chance at redemption. While the United Nations says that children who commit crimes should be placed in a closed facility as a measure of last resort. We take a closer look.
Private Prisons: How US corporations make money from locking you up:
Today the US is home to 5% of the world’s population but a quarter of the world’s prisoners. It also has the highest rate of youth imprisonment and on any given day there are more than 70,000 youths in detention. And the biggest winners of this mass incarceration? The for-profit prison companies whose business models essentially depend on locking more and more people up.
