In 2014, the US Department of Justice confirmed Louisiana remained number 1, among the 50 states, with 38,030 in prison, a rate of 816 per 100,000 over 100 points ahead of next highest state Oklahoma.
Not only does Louisiana lead the nation in devising its own New Plantation (Prison) model to make full use of Black Labor... it also leads the nation in NOT supplying Public Defenders. This, in turn, forces individuals (particularly Blacks caught up in the choke-hold of a racist system) to plead out to crimes they never committed.
Angola is an open wound to the premise of a Just nation.
