I talk constantly about the for profit prison system, the irrationality of prison for possession, and general wtfery that we have here in the states but everything is better put and more understandable when it comes out of the mouth of Stephen Fry.
Who is he? Just know he is smarter than both of us and enjoy common sense and critical thinking. Prison systems in this country have turned into for profit backdoor slavery. Obviously its hard to feel bad for actual criminals but a line must be drawn between violent offenders and bullshit sentences.
