    Scheidegger disputes such assertions.

    “Any claim the one-year limit is unconstitutional is frivolous,” he said, noting that Texas — which executes the most inmates in America — has a six-month limit to such investigations.

    Yep, let’s point to one of the most broken judicial systems on the planet as some sick justification for speeding up our own broken system in which our own DA has been PROVEN crooked and/or incompetent. What country am I living in again?

    Wikipedia lists 221 nations throughout the world and show their incarceration rates. America is #2 with 693 of every 100,000 residents in jail. We’re second only to Seychelles, a backwards impoverished African nation with a population of about 90,000.

    Could someone write a blog and explain why America has so many bad people in jail as compared to the rest of the free and un-free world?

    Or maybe we just don’t want to talk about things that make us uncomfortable.
