  A perfect New Year's resolution for Obama next month wouldbe a wish to really overhaul the prison system in the USand to make sure that the police would find it less easierto haul in people for minor offences. More trust in otherwords. And nurture less suspicion and less prejudice.At present the US is almost like one giant system of jailsand detention centres. Today the US has the biggest prisonpopulation in the world and also the largest pool of aliendetainees. Its prisons are all rated as overcrowded, fairlyovercrowded to severely overcrowded. since the 1970s, theUS prison population has multiplied by roughly eight times.Below is a view of some prison population concentrations.The figures are for the number of people living in jailsfor every 100,000 inhabitants.____________________________________________________| | | | | || US | Russia | N.Zealand |Australia| Britain ||________|_________|___________|_________|_________|| | | | | || 740 | 610 | 180 | 160 | 150 ||________|_________|___________|_________|_________|The population of the US today is 303.8 million people andso the US prison population now amounts to some 2.3 millionpeople. This is bigger than the entire populations of somecountries. It is totally not incorrect to say that the USis a prison nation. So much for the 'freedom' and 'Americandream' crap. Many foreigners who fell for this crap quicklyended up in sweatshops, underground factories, whorehouses,federal detention centres and even maximum security jails.Surely, most unmistakably, the US is a prison nation. Yetnot many are aware of it.Obama should come to his senses and break this karma cyclein his country that is almost totally unique in the Westernhemisphere. Stop peddling useless bullshit and stop wastingtaxpayers' money. Instead of travelling here and there andenjoying endless luxurious holidays, Obama should start acampaign to encourage the US people to break their chainsof prison-nation bondage. Make this your very own New Year'sresolution !Obama should ask himself why is it that minority people arequite often hauled up for very minor or even non-existentinfringements. Should not a society like the US at the veryleast allow a citizen and even any non-citizen to vocallyprotest his rights in a polite way when confronted by thepolice ? Why is the US police allowed to book a person formerely protesting his basic rights as in the Louis Gates'case ? A man has the right not to step out of his own homeunless he has very clearly committed some offence !The US police has a very long history of arresting peoplejust because they were quick to open their mouths to makea protest about their rights. 'Open your mouth one more  time if you like to go to jail' is often the standard barkof a US police officer intending to silence his victim bythe use of fear and persecution. Is this what is beingtaught in West Point ? 'Open your mouth one more time ifyou like a bullet to pass through your head'. Now we canknow why so many civilians were shot dead in Vietnam, Iraqand Afghanistan.Obama should also ask himself if there is any shred ofmoral consciousness in the favourite US habit of allowingmale policemen to take charge of female detainees. HasObama forgotten about the assault and beating of a younggirl by two police officers in a King County holding cellin Seattle not too long ago ?The police officer lunged and kicked and sat on the girl'sbody while using her head as a punching bag before draggingher along the floor by her hair. Is this acceptable toObama ? After all, he is always projecting a very perfectimage of himself and his office. (The police officer laterlodged a report that the girl had 'assaulted' him first).So, just what kind of society is the US nowadays ???The butchering, murdering and torturing kind !Obama should stand up now and clean up his act !!!
