The Land of the Free punishes or imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation. This collection of testimonials from criminal offenders, family members, and experts on America’s criminal justice system puts a human face on the millions of Americans subjugated by the US Government’s 40 year, one trillion dollar social catastrophe: The War on Drugs; a failed policy underscored by fear, politics, racial prejudice and intolerance in a public atmosphere of “out of sight, out of mind.”

The United States has only 5% of the world’s population, yet a full 25% of the world’s prisoners. At 2.5 million, the US has more prisoners than even China does with five times the population of the United States. 8 million Americans (1 in every 31) languish under some form of state monitoring known as “correctional supervision.” On top of that, the security and livelihood of over 13 million more has been forever altered by a felony conviction.

The American use of punishment is so pervasive, and so disproportionate, that even the conservative magazine The Economist declared in 2010, “never in the civilized world have so many been locked up for so little.”

The project will unfold over a two year period, beginning with the release of this feature-length documentary and then continuing on with the release of short films and complete interviews from each of the 100 participants in the project, meant to represent the 1 in 100 Americans that are currently sitting behind bars.

2010 – It is the biggest leak of military secrets ever. Al Jazeera has obtained access to almost 400,000 classified American documents. Torture, claims of murder at the checkpoint – revelations that make a mockery of the rules of combat. This special program reveals the truth about the war in Iraq.

    I say FFFF al Jazeera. “Exposing” what we have known for years- all the while this zionist-CIA ‘media’ outlet is behaving the same way as media in Iraq War, they are now pushing war crimes in Syria- with Al Jazeera even running weapons for insurgents, causing some of their own reporters to resign. But in another 10 yrs Jazeera will be covering the West’s war crimes in Syria and breathlessly- and self-righteously- exposing war crimes committed by ‘others’ in Syria. Sick of these bastards.

    One of the few pieces, along with antiwar.com which detail the Israeli engine behind the attack on Syria. Otherwise- why would UK or France care one bit about Syria? they wouldnt. this article is deliberately ignored because it fully exposes the NEOCONS long before the Hersh whitewash years later
