Statistical data of the rates of incarceration for over the past 40 years in the United States indicates that there has a significant increase in the number of people being incarcerated the primary drivers being drugs, crimes, and wars leading to exceptional growth in the size of the prison population (Alexander, 94). A comparison of drivers to the incarceration in America to other countries in the world indicates that other countries have a higher crime, drugs and war rates yet America leads in the incarceration rates over the years. Such unlinearlity bring to light the underlying racial and control factors that contribute to the responses given to law offenders in the criminal justice system. Evolution of law and order over time has leaned towards segregation, therefore, increasing the scope and rate of mass incarcerations incurred in the society as a whole.
