Mass Incarceration in the US -  a short animation that gives you brief look at how messed up the prison system is in the US.  If you’re wondering why he didn’t cover race, he responded on his youtube channel, in the comments section

A lot of people have been asking why I didn’t cover race in this video.

But as I researched this video,  it was very clear that I wouldn’t be doing anyone any favors if I tried to make this a comprehensive study of the US criminal justice system.
