Stephen Fry talks about imprisonment in the United States

This is a short clip outlining some of the major shortcoming of the prison system of the United States. The United States has just over four percent of the world's population, and yet we house more than twenty-five percent of the world's prison population. We are consistently touting the merits of democracy, and yet we manage to imprison more people than the "socialist" Chinese. The prison system is flawed and has degenerated into a system that is nothing more than modern slavery.
