Yes, there would be costs to improve the social and economic conditions which contribute to such high incarceration rates, but these costs would be worthwhile. And remember, we are spending billions to support a war in Iraq which could be used to improve the quality of lives here in this country rather than bring death to not only our troops but as the United Nation reports today, approximately 34,000 Iraqi CIVILIANS in 2006.

And we should all not forget that Beckham can be paid the equivalent of 156K a day ( 365 days in a year!) to play professional soccer in Los Angeles. There is definitely something wrong with our priorities.
