U.S. More Lawless than Iran/Iraq?

Hated the way it was formatted – but the questions are good and the answers are sourced/cited, so that’s a good thing.

Found this ALEC related question interesting.

Which of these countries puts the highest percentage of their people in jails and prisons?

Answer:Six. The rate of incarceration per 100,000 people is:
  USA 730,
  Russian 534,
  Iran 334,
  China 122,
  Iraq 101, and
  Germany 86.

So, this would lead you to believe that the US is more lawless than Iraq or Iran.

But really that's not the case - what's true is ALEC corporate sector members need to make more money - by using prison labor!

This is a boom for ALEC’s private prison industry corporate members.
This is a boom for ALEC’s corporate sector members who use cheap prison labor instead of hiring you or your neighbor to do the work.

If you are not aware of the role in American Legislative Exchange council (ALEC) Prison Labor issues I suggest you start here

And then maybe - grab your favorite drink, get comfortable and sit down and  listen to this:

ALEC members and those affiliated with ALEC in any manner
MUST NOT BE RE-ELECTED or receive our support in any means or manner!

Without state and federal legislators ALEC will cease to exist and it will implode.

This is what ALEC is About  - An Interview with Mark Pocan about the ALEC Annual Meeting.

And watch this news video  from North Carolina on how other ALEC "model legislation" is going to screw the citizens of North Carolina - legislation introduced by ALEC legislators.
