Ok guys,now this is systemic oppression. He's admittedly incentivized to keep non violent offenders incarcerated for longer periods of time for the advantage of cheap labor. That incentivizes the police to be overtly heinous & excessive in their pursuit of more people to arrest. This also incentivizes the judges to eagerly hand out egregious amounts of time to low level offenders. This is what being black in America amounts to. Make no mistake ladies & gentlemen... THIS IS SLAVERY!!! The thirteenth amendment clearly states that slavery is abolished,UNLESS in prison. Therefore,the alternative to slavery,was covertly finding ways to continue slavery. THATS WHY all systems are set up to send US to prison. And THATS WHY it's called "Systemic Oppression". Anybody who debates this may as well pick up a tiki torch & get out there wit the rest of the #Facist #NeoNazzi #LilDicksters YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!!! Thanks. #USorELSE
