F.B.I. : Uniform Crime Report RAND JACK RILEY: Well, I think you have to look for something that would help explain why crime fell rather substantially across most of the country and at approximately the same time. And there are very few things that can meet those two criteria in terms of explaining what happened to crime. I would point first to demographics. There's been a rather substantial change in the number of people in the age 15 to 24 bracket that commit most of the crimes here in the country or that are most likely to commit crime, and the second factor is probably economic growth in combination with reduced opportunities in drug marketing and drug trafficking because of declines in drug use.

Extractions: From 1991 to 1998 the rate of crime in the United States fell by 22 percent. This decline occurred during a period when the number of state and federal prisoners rose substantially, from 789,610 to 1,252,830. These two developments have led some observers to conclude that the massive increase in incarceration caused the dramatic decline in crime. Diminishing Returns: Crime and Incarceration in the 1990s from the Washington, D.C.-based Sentencing Project examines this contention by comparing state-level changes in the use of imprisonment. Major findings of the report include: Crime rates declined nationally during this period, but the states that increased their use of incarceration greater than the national average achieved smaller reductions in crime than the states with below average increases. "Above average" states increased their rate of incarceration by 72 percent and experienced a 13 percent decline in crime. "Below average" states increased imprisonment by 30 percent and crime rates declined by 17 percent.

Extractions: The Problems Are Real And Permanent Contrary to the assertion by organizations like sistahspace that "The Problems Are Real And Solveable", the data shows that the problems with American blacks are real and permanent. Over the last three decades, the murder rate in states like Iowa, Maine, and North Dakota have averaged 1.4 per 100,000 population, which is one tenth that of states like Illinois, Lousiana, Maryland, or Mississippi, whose murder rates average 16. The most obvious distinguishing difference between these states is the higher percentage of blacks in those latter states: Murder Rate per 100,000 Population Percentage of Population Who Are Blacks Iowa Maine North Dakota Illinois Lousiana Maryland Mississippi If this were the only factor, which it's not, then the state to state data shows that the murder rate increases by one murder per 100,000 population for each 2% increase in the percentage of the population who are blacks. Where there was one murder in the state of North Dakota in 1994, a state with a black population of 4,001, there were 579 murders in Maryland which has a black population of 1,428,207. If Maryland had had a murder rate equivalent to North Dakota, then there would have been only 10 murders that year, which makes those blacks responsible for 569 of those murders, which is 41 murders per 100,000 blacks.
Extractions: Two assumptions are behind recent legislation passed in many U.S. states which make it easier to try juvenile offenders as adults. Although there has not been extensive research into the deterrent effects of the stricter laws, the evidence that does exist indicates that deterrent effects are minimal or nonexistent, and that, in fact, trying juveniles in criminal court may actually result in higher rates of reoffending. To date, there's no extensive research comparing the lengths of prison sentences received by juveniles convicted in criminal court with those who remained in the juvenile system. What research exists indicates that juveniles convicted in criminal court, particularly serious and violent offenders, are more likely to be incarcerated and receive longer sentences than juveniles retained in the juvenile system. Despite this, however, they often actually serve only a fraction of the sentences imposed, in many cases less time than they would have served in a juvenile facility. A 1996 Texas study found that juveniles sentenced in adult court did receive longer terms than they would have received in juvenile court. However, for all offenses except rape, the average prison time actually served was only about 27 percent of the sentence imposed, in some cases shorter than the possible sentence length in a juvenile facility.

The following synopsis is from Anne's home page: an Oregon based prison reform organization dedicated to humanizing corrections in memory of Gregory Lee Pierce We are not asking you to ignore crime, or let criminals go unpunished, but we are advocating that corrections staff and society remember that inmates and their families are human beings. Cruelty, sarcasm and degradation are not effective deterrents to recidivism. We would like the State of Oregon to try some of the programs that are being adopted around the country, that are proving successful at reducing recidivism. Four such programs are described on my page, asy Prison Info. You can use the link below to go read about them.

Extractions: Research in Germany indicates that youthful offenders sent to prison had higher rates of recidivism than those given alternative sanctions. Removing youths from societyeven when incarceration included job trainingappeared to negatively affect their ability to find employment when released. Among youths who received alter-native sentences, their rates of recidivism were affected by judges' and social workers' attitudes and communication abilities. Low recidivism rates were positively correlated with officials' beliefs in their clients' rehabilitation and their ability to communicate supportively with offenders.

Extractions: Up For a day by day account of life in the Bermuda Narcotics department, read an official diary: Prison Statistics Why such a high incidence of imprisonment? The following appeared in a Bermuda newspaper, an article by By Tony McWilliam and Don Burgess: Bermuda's a world leader in prison numbers BERMUDA is a world leader when it comes to locking up criminals. The island tops a global league table for imprisonment, beating out even the U.S. and South Africa. Black Bermudian males, however, are far less likely to be in prison than their U.S. counterparts. Figures show there are currently about 280 people incarcerated in Bermuda at Westgate, the Prison Farm and the Co-Ed Facility, including 25 women and some 49 foreigners. That translates to 48 people per 10,000 people in Bermuda's population, compared to 43 in the U.S., 33 in South Africa and 10 in the U.K.. If non-Bermudian inmates are excluded, the figure for Bermuda drops to 39 per 10,000, which puts the island in second place, below the U.S. A cross section of observers yesterday cited flaws in the education and criminal justice systems and a lack of commitment by law makers to endorse alternative sentencing and support families.
