Our justice system is pretty pathetic. The California M.J. act for use as medicinal, yet the feds are arresting people who have small amounts as criminals. Especially if a minority. The idea that every one in prison is a beast is absolutely B.S. Prisons are filled with mentally ill and people with disabilities just because they don't have the intelligence levels or the money to defend themselves.
The prison industry is exactly that a industry. The U.S. invented prisons and the correction system concept. It has never worked: it just hardens and develops worse offenders.
War serves to purpose other than to empower a few through the destruction of others. All war does and has ever done is create more wars. It's human insanity that is self perpetuating.
Like going into a dark closet and beating yourself for no reason other than you think you deserve it.
