Just wanted to give a nod to whose research and statistics on the prison industrial complex are just outstanding. Their Prison Policy Initiaive and Prisoners of the Census sections are excellent, as are some of the stats. Here's one I happen to like: In South Africa under apartheid (1993) Black males: were incarcerated at a rate of 851 per 100,000. And in the U.S. under George W. Bush (2004) that rate was 4,919 per 100,000.
