    America is locking up more people than any other nation on earth. Home to just 5 percent of the world's total population, the United States houses more than 20 percent of the world's prisoners. In the last three decades, fueled in large part by a national drug policy and legislation like three strikes laws, America has imprisoned more people in local jails, federal penitentiaries, and private correctional facilities than Stalin put in the Gulags. New court rulings have declared overcrowded prisons to be unconstitutional, and the sheer cost of incarceration is forcing prisons to let prisoners back out on the streets.
    VICE News was granted rare access to go inside one of the most maximum-security prisons in the country, a place that's on the frontline of what could be a sea change in prison policy. Salinas Valley State Prison is home to America's most powerful prison gangs including the Aryan Brotherhood and Mexican Mafia. It's a place that's projected to have more than 700 assaults this year. In an institution that houses the worst of the worst, we see how one maverick warden is trying to turn the system around by rehabilitating murderers before they get returned to the streets.

And is there other types of prisons? We have only one type and it is called Prison. Depending on your crime there is certain sections that you will be kept in while doing your time, from my understanding. If you don't mind to explain the different type of facilities. But once again respect man and I pray that life don't force you on to any wrong path's. Life can be tuff. Nope life is tuff yes?

      If youre interested in french jail system (yes i eat baguette and fromage oui oui Paris l'amour - seriously im French, i hate Paris btw), it may be hard to find and need some web-digging to get ENG subtitles, I recommand "Des hommes" ("Men") about Marseille's main jail, the Baumettes, and "A l'ombre de la République" ("Shadow of the Republic"), about 3 different jails + a psychiatric hospital.

    In 1999, my favorite second cousin was released after doing 15 years. I got him a job and some clothes. One of the things I remembered is that he was in a hurry to do everything . I was young at the time and I was not aware of how valuable "time" is. I thought that providing him with a job(money) was something that should have satisfied him completely; that is when I learned that time is something that you never get back. I hope this brother at the end of the video is still on the streets. By the way, my cousin did NOT reoffend and has been on the streets for over 20 years.

    As a lifelong convict who did 21 yrs in prison including a 10 yr flat federal bid, I honestly believe that the prison system is a major contributor or one of the biggest reason racism is still a problem in America! No where else in America is the "politics" absolutely broken down into races and litteral segregation. Take that and understand that also we are seeing hip-hop take over the world literally. Why I bring this up is because in rap and just the whole street culture in general prison is basically glorified and used as a badge or stripes for someone who has been locked up. So it all comes to get her and it has seriously made going to prison acceptable by a massive culture. And what I will say is that the prisons absolutely have the power to stop the "racial divide" and stop the politics of race in prison. Now of course it won't be easy especially since the politics have been controlling the prisons for probly as long as they have been open. I blame the system for that. They could have made it so there was no "choice" as far as who you are around and who you associate with. But they knew if they did that it would make as much money as the way it is now, where people come in with five years and end up catching life because of the racial bullshit and the gang violence.it can definitely be fixed and changed but I doubt it will ever happen because why make these men better people who won't keep getting locked up when they can just throw you in a death trap where they let gangs destroy each other's lives while guaranteeing the prisons stay full so the jobs are secure

    I went to prison a few times when I was 19, 23 and 29, all three times were isolated incidences in which case I got too drunk, decided to use and ended up stealing and got caught, I've stolen a lot of stuff from grocery stores and what not and I'm not proud of it. When I stay sober, as I have been for 4 years, I'm completely honest, it's only when I got too waisted that I would occasionally steal because the alcohol gave me a sense of not caring. It's not who I genuinely am when I do those things but I was caught 3 times and spent a total of 56 months here and there. Now to be called a burglar when I was simply waisted, made a bad choice and stole some tools from an open garage is not something I can accept. I quit drinking and stopped stealing 12 years ago and I was never a career criminal I simply got caught a few times when I was drunk, I woke up in jail saying, wtf is wrong with me? I paid my debt to society and refuse to be called a burglar or Career criminal. Thanks to GOD for allowing me to get and remain sober.

      Keep it up homie! You’re doing a great job, and taking accountability for our parts in the mistakes we’ve made is the first step to constructing a strong and sturdy foundation for true growth and a life that isn’t dictated by drug use and irreparable, past mistakes. One of the most valuable clichés I’ve ever heard is this: “imagine you’re driving down a long road and all you can see is the open road ahead of you through the from the driver’s seat, and you can also see the small review mirror. Keep your eye set on the road, or else you may crash, but be sure to peek at the rear view mirror every so often to make sure you are not blocking anyone off and make sure to check said mirrors before changing lanes.”
      In short: if you feel that you’re more prone to a relapse or a slip, play the entire tape back in your head of the last time you hit rock bottom, but don’t allow your past mistakes to shape the trajectory of your future.
      Always remember, you can’t change anything other than your own reaction and actions. Making sure you don’t downplay your parts in the situations you go through is a golden rule in recovery. If you’re not honest to the fullest extent, you’re shooting yourself in the foot!
      If you realize that alcohol is the stepping stone that leads to your stealing, keep that in your mind before picking up drugs and/or alcohol again.
      Sorry, I hope this doesn’t sound like I’m trying to run your recovery for you lol, I just had to respond with something positive after reading the dumb response from this other commenter 😅

Some people are able to do it, and raise their children. The point is that having a child is not what makes you a parent, but raising one is, so unless you have some direct information showing that the young man in the video is a "bad parent" you need to stfu. If you can not be happy for someone that had a child, than you need to take a look at your own life, in which you probably will wait till you are 35-40 years old, did everything in your life as a plan and than had a kid (nothing wrong with this but then do not judge others by what you think is right)

    i was arrested every year for 8 years straight for petty offenses like theft and possession. i kept going back over and over and over every year. 5 out of 8 years incarcerated from 18 to 26 yrs old.
    finally i received a treatment sentence...1.5 years of intense drug court, 9 months halfway house, 6 months house arrest, 6 months thinking for a change classes, and 500 hrs community service. i havent been in trouble since and its been almost 4 yrs. ive held my job almost 4 years, have my own home, i now have a 2 yr old son that is my whole world, im engaged to an amazing woman, i own a 2005 chevy cobalt, 2007 aqua blue Charger on 22s, a 2002 chevy malibu, and i have peace and serenity. life is easier now. no more stress being incarcerated. no more homelessness. i work hard, pay taxes, stay out of trouble, help ppl, and dont harm anybody

      No such thing as victimless crimes. Theft has victims.. even if from a business because prices are increased across the board to accommodate the items stolen, loss prevention staffing, insurance to cover the bigger items etc. And drug offenses are absolutely not victimless. Demand fuels the gangs and street violence, people steal to get drugs, police/paramedics/hospitals need to be staffed to take care of the crime, overdoses, accidents etc. associated with drugs.
