The U.S. dwarfs the rest of the world when it comes to locking up its citizens, due in large part to madness of our incarceration policies. Tools

We're No. 1! We're No. 1! The New York Times' Adam Liptak wrote a disturbing front-page story on Wednesday about how the United States dwarfs the rest of the world when it comes to locking up its citizens. The United States has less than 5 percent of the world's population, but a quarter of the world's prisoners. There are now 2.3 million people behind bars in the United States. According to the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics' most recent report, the number of people incarcerated in U.S. prisons and jails jumped by more than 60,000 in the year ending June 30, 2006. That jump represents the largest increase since 2000.

The United States continues to rank first among all nations in both total prison/jail population and per capita incarceration rates. The United States has held first place for decades, followed by China (with more than four times our population) at 1.6 million and Russia at 885,670, according to the International Centre for Prison Studies at King's College in London.

The Justice Department sent a legal memorandum to the Pentagon in 2003 asserting that federal laws prohibiting assault, maiming and other crimes did not apply to military interrogators who questioned al-Qaeda captives because the president's ultimate authority as commander in chief overrode such statutes.

Americans likely to vote in November strongly believe the United States should take Israel's side in its conflict with the Palestinians, a poll found.

Sixty percent of those who say they will cast their ballots in the presidential election support Israel, according to a poll released Monday by Public Opinion Strategies and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research commissioned by The Israel Project.

Some 85 percent of respondents supporting Republican candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz), 62 percent backing Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and 58 percent of those for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D.-N.Y.) say America should stand with Israel during the current Israel-Palestinian conflict.

Crimes by Homeland Security agents stir alert Score: More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...

JAY WEAVER AND ALFONSO CHARDY

Bribery. Drug trafficking. Migrant smuggling.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is supposed to stop these types of crimes. Instead, so many of its officers have been charged with committing those crimes themselves that their boss in Washington recently issued an alert about the ''disturbing events'' and the ``increase in the number of employee arrests.''

Thomas S. Winkowski, assistant commissioner of field operations, wrote a memo to more than 20,000 officers nationwide noting that employees must behave professionally at all times -- even when not on the job.

''It is our responsibility to uphold the laws, not break the law,'' Winkowski wrote in the Nov. 16 memo obtained by The Miami Herald.

Winkowski's memo cites employee arrests involving domestic violence, DUI and drug possession. But court records show Customs officers and other Department of Homeland Security employees from South Florida to the Mexican border states have been charged with dozens of far more serious offenses.
