Sorry, 461, no cigar for you

Sorry, 461, no cigar for you today. You really believe that because someone is against misconduct by law enforcement that they are criminals? Speaking of stupidity, the stupidity inherent in your comments makes me question why you are allowed to vote.

Here's a source to have a little fun with:

The report is entitled "Justice Expenditures and Employment, 1982-2007 - Statistical Tables", written by Tracey Kyckelhahn, Ph.D.

During 2007, the cost of the nation's police protection, corrections, and judicial and legal services was $228 billion, an increase of 171% since 1982, after adjusting for inflation. Between 2002 and 2007, public expenditures for criminal and civil justice remained flat.

Per capita justice expenditures totaled $755 per U.S. resident in 2007, a decline of 5% from the inflation adjusted 2002 peak of $791 per resident.

In 2007, a total of 2.5 million persons were employed in the nation's justice system, an increase of 93% from 1982, when 1.3 million persons were employed.

The justice employment rate increased from 5.5 employees per 1,000 U.S. residents in 1982 to 8.1 in 2001. This rate held steady between 2002 and 2007.
