EVIL Texas ;) - Charts. Astronomical Texas incarceration rate. 1% of its population imprisoned in 2001. 1.3% of its adults incarcerated in 2001. Second only to Louisiana's incarceration rate. In 2003 Texas led all other U.S. states with 4.6 percent of its adult population under correctional supervision: jail, prison, probation, parole. The true legacy of the George W.

In 2001
Texas had 1 percent of all its population imprisoned !!
Texas had 1.3 percent of its adult population imprisoned.

In 2003
Texas had 4.6 percent of its adult population in jail, prison, probation, or parole...


Compare the astronomical Texas incarceration rate to the rates of other nations in the world chart below. The true George W. Bush is shown by his previous governorship of Texas 1994 - 2000. Some of the Texas info is at the end of the enclosed timeline chart that illustrates the 5-fold increase of the U.S. incarceration rate since fellow "friendly-fascist" President Nixon declared a War on Drugs in 1971.

The rates are for inmates per 100,000 state population.
Note that no state in the USA has a rate less than 200.
Bush was governor of Texas 1994-2000. His legacy:
Louisiana (1025)
and TEXAS (1014)
(under Bush) had the highest rates in 1999.
In 2001
(see the 4 links just above) it was
Louisiana (1013)
and
TEXAS (966)
that again had the highest incarceration rates with

1% of their populations imprisoned.
2001 Federal incarceration rate of 49 was NOT 
added in to those numbers.
In the USA it costs 
around $25,000 average per year for each inmate. 
Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS):
"At midyear 2005,
nearly 4.7 percent of black males were in prison
or jail, compared to 1.9 percent of Hispanic males,
and 0.7 percent of white males. Among males in
their late 20s, nearly 12 percent of black males,
compared to 3.9 percent of Hispanic males and
1.7 percent of white males, were incarcerated"

*1925 to 1977 incarceration rates are estimates
based on prison rates from the Bureau of Justice
Statistics document NCJ 102494, State and

NCJ 85861. The 1925-1977 jail rates are
estimated as 50% of prison rates. Prison rate plus

Incarceration RATE per 100,000 population. You can
divide it by a thousand to get the percentage of
the national population imprisoned. Or just move
the decimal point to the left 3 places. 1000
prisoners per 100,000 population is 1.000 percent
of the population imprisoned.

*Republicans lead U.S. Drug War. Democrats follow Republican evil. Huge LINKS list! U.S. Drug-war Industrial Complex. Republican fundamentalist holy war. Friendly Fascism. Drug war leaders are the rabid right, hate radio, hate television, NRA (National Rifle Association), religious right, (snortin') George Bush the hypocrite, etc.. Republican-led drug war disenfranchises (no voting rights) millions of voters (mostly Democrat-voting blacks).
