It's all of these "tough on crime" people that get elected. You go to jail for just about anything here.

At some point, after so many people are in prison for non-crimes, you have to question if there comes a point where it becomes a transition of prisons becoming camps, at least to a degree. People in concentration camps tend to not have committed a crime, yet get locked up. As they expand the definition of "crime", more people who haven't committed real crimes are going to get locked up.
