Every country needs to take better care. The #2 priority is…
The clean does not need help to be cleaner. The rich do not need help getting richer. The educated do not need help to get more educated. The successful do not need more help getting more successful. The famous ones do not need help to get more famous but these are the ones that get all the attention in life. They continue to get more and more.
Most are underneath this line. Every country never reveals its true potential because of this. Humans should not be treated like animals or worse than animals and just be discarded like a piece of unwanted trash or food for the mama and dad bird. The ones in power, the ones that are smarter, the ones that’s better off should protect the rest. “With power comes great responsibility” and I struggle with this everyday. As humans, we are conditioned to be all about, me, me, me,me, or no one else. Well when everyone else dies and you're left in this World all alone, please tell me. Was it worth it being all about me, me, me? You're all about the top but the greatest foundation of anything or anyone, or any house, or any country is builded from the bottom up. How can you build a skyscraper from the top and accept it to withstand at all or to be built at all.
Every country needs to take better care. The #2 priority is a tie between fixing your Jail system and focusing on early education for children. If children are raised right with the right attention and resources to help their potentials as they pass the age of 13, and 18, and 25, they will have a greater chance of staying out of jail, and becoming an asset to your country and not a liability or even worse. We adults were all once a baby, a toddler, and a young adult and we are the ones that were lucky enough to get this far. We are not in a habit of looking back, even the bible tells you not to look back but if you can bear with me for one second, as you look back, can you think of another kid that grew up with you that never made it this far. For few, great, happy for you and that’s how it should be. Everyone should grow up normal and have a change at a normal life but for most, especially all the poor countries, when these people look back, it's so empty because most kids that they grew up with, does not make it this far. Far enough to be an adult, far enough to have a change at a normal life or far enough to be an asset to your country and not an liability.
Your jail system is wrong in every way and in 99% of the countries. Only a few jail (seriously about 3 of them) got it right, they treat humans like humans and not like animals. You want the crime rate to go down, start here. I'm not saying this because of my own nationality but I am saying this because I am a human.
Half of the world's prison population of about nine million is held in the US, China or Russia.
Prison rates in the US are the world's highest, at 724 people per 100,000. In Russia the rate is 581.
At 145 per 100,000, the imprisonment rate of England and Wales is at about the midpoint worldwide.
Many of the lowest rates are in developing countries, but overcrowding can be a serious problem. Kenyan prisons have an occupancy level of 343.7%
England and Wales have the highest per capita prison population in Western Europe - 143 people per 100,000.
Scotland, where 135 people out of every 100,000 are in jail, is also above average. Northern Ireland, however, is among those countries with the lowest rates of imprisonment.
