Regardless of party people scare me. The old saying ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutley’ is often true.
Many people in a postion of power cannot help but use that power to achieve whatever they want no matter how bad or twisted it is.
Its good that you question your system but may I ask how old you are? Its just that the US prison system and justice system is well known as corrupt/ unfair and often abusive, its been the subject of many documentaries and news items the world over if you are very young I can understand you may have missed this, but for older people there is no excuse.

I try to avoid politics as you an never tell who is manipulating who and often whether open enemies are really friends putting on an act. I think people at the top who abuse power need tough sentences but the old pals act, and people in power worried about how they would feel, generally limits such sentences to little or poor country officials who have few friends.
