    More prisoners than the Soviet Union's Gulag at it's height or present day China which is still technically called Communist. Very telling!

    wonder how many of those here are for drug related stuff? I maybe naively believe a lot of these are "dumb" crimes to be jailed for

    Just sayin..... Im not familiar how the prison systems are in other countries. I only know that I dont agree with a lot of the things we put people in jail for.... that could affect those numbers as well as touch on my soft spot lol

    I'm surprised the Soviet Gulag and Chinese were that high.
    The Soviets killed over 20 million and the Chinese was north of 100 million.
    That don't put dead people in prison, but they do send them on tour around the world.

    One might argue that the United States has also killed 100 million from a certain POV. Definitely smoked past the 20 million mark with relative ease.
