    The land of the free has the highest incarceration rate in the world by a mile. Most are non violent drug offenders who should be in rehab at their expense. It costs roughly $90,000 a yr. to house an inmate. Hillary had plans to reform the criminal justice system and apply that savings to the infrastructure and going green. Alas, we ended up w/ trump who doesn't address any of those problems.
