    I heard this on NPR the other day. In fact, you don’t even need to qualify it with a “per capita;” we imprison the most people, period. According to this site we have about 500k more prisoners than China, and about 2 million more than India. I just don’t see how this is possible. Where are they getting their statistics? We can’t reliably tell whether Iran is close to assembling a nuclear weapon, but we know how many people China has imprisoned? Plus, it’s worth noting that this site doesn’t seem to think that Egypt and Cuba have anyone in prison.
