Looks like prisons are a booming business. A new record of 2,000,000 incarcerated in the U.S. was announced by the government. Of note is that 1 out of every 142 U.S. residents currently resides in a jail or prison, & the federal government has almost 162,000 inmates which is more than any single state has. While some states had a prison population growth of as little as 1%, the federal prisons experienced a population growth of about 5.7%.
