So what is it? Why are so many people incarcerated? Is it really that hard to stay out? Sure, I've done a couple illegal things myself, but I'm not guilty because I wasn't caught...I wasn't caught because I was careful and smart...not that said things were even that bad really, just misdemeanors that didn't hurt anybody. I've never even seen the inside of a police car or even been pulled over.

Really, why is it so hard for so many people to stay out of trouble? I haven't had any difficulty whatsoever. I guess I'm just trying to figure it out. Right now the criminal justive system is costing my country (USA) a whole lot of freaking money...I'm wanting to know how so many found themselves in such a situation.
