Click to see full-size image

On the evening of April 4th, inmates rioted at the City Justice Center in St. Louis, Missouri, US.

The prisoners broke windows, set a fire and threw debris to the ground, in a prison that has had several such incidents in recent months.

Jacob Long, spokesperson for Mayor Lyda Krewson’s office said “two violent and dangerous disturbances” originated from two units on the third floor beginning at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Inmates were seen tossing objects out of broken windows and setting a fire. Firefighters used a hose to douse the flames.

One hour and a half after the rioting began, police came and put an end to it.

Then approximately 30 minutes later, nmates broke windows on the other side of the jail and began throwing objects again. Thirty minutes later, the inmates had disappeared again and officers could be seen inside.

Some inmates were heard yelling demands for court dates. Proceedings have been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

An uprising at the jail on February 6th involved over 100 inmates and sent one corrections officer to the hospital. Officials said detainees were upset about conditions inside the jail and had concerns about COVID-19.



Nobody escaped during the chaos, though the inmates did drop a makeshift rope from the third floor to a second-story landing, according to social media footage.

Nothing new here. The so-called criminal-justice system in the US is an inhuman hell hole of gangs and other incorrigible savages that serves only the purpose of breeding more crime. The US has the largest ratio of prisoners compared to the rest of the domestic population in the world. You can read that as more American Exceptionalism. American prisons are also the human zoo of proof that when it comes to their natural tendencies and organic behaviors that humans revert back to their tribal and racial identity groups.

True but many manufacturers use cheap prison labor to manufacture their products just another off-shoot of capitalism which is another reasdon it should be destroyed..

China population – 1.398 billion (2019) US population – 328.2 million (2019) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e9a71fe82feb68b81c75061a20ca8ef40246822e731ef249827357aca6197849.png

China executes more prisoners annually than every other nation on earth put together. That just may factor into things.

I see your point but I couldn’t find how many prisoners China executes per ann and I saw a lot of BS from websites such as Amnesty International/ deathpenaltyinfo. They don’t know so they say 1000s+ and call it.

Let’s go with this, “According to the Dui Hua Foundation, a U.S.-based organization estimates that China executed 12,000 people in 2002, 6,500 people in 2007, and roughly 2,400 in 2013 and 2014.” Now let’s say 2400 each year from 2014-2020 that would give us, 35,300 death – from 2002 to 2020 – China executed ~35,300. Let’s add that to 1,710,000 + 35,300 = 1,745,300. Now let’s be stupid and believe them and say before 2002 China executed 12,000 per year, from 1992 to 2002 = 12000*10= 120,000. Add that to 1,745,300+120,000= 1,865,300. Yes, I added 2002 again so -12,000 from 1,865,300 but you get the picture.

Some notes, Dui Hua is like MEK, US funded and controlled, so the number are stupidly high. China have Wahhabi terrorists – and much higher population. “As of June 2020, the United States had the highest prisoner rate, with 655 prisoners per 100,000 of the national population.”

Let’s put China in US shoes, 1,398,000,000/100,000= 13,980*655= 9,156,900 LMFAO

I think the whole executed thing doesn’t really change much.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
