6% of U.S. Citizens are Arrested - increase of 500%.

From the book "Freedom in Chains" by James Bovard.
"Law enforcement agencies arrested over 15 million Americans in 1996 - almost 6% of the population. Since 1973, the number of people confined in prisons has increased by over 500%. Almost 10% of American males will end up in prison at some point in their lives."

"Politicians appear far more anxious to control citizens then to protect them."
