US Prison Population on Rise

US Prison Population on Rise
New figures show the number of Americans in prison or jail is on the rise. A record two point two million people are behind bars, up nearly three percent from last year. Another four million people are either on probation or parole. The number of female prisoners has seen a significant jump, rising two point six percent. Racial disparities show no signs of reversal. Among males in their late 20s, eight percent of African Americans are incarcerated, compared with one percent of white males
