Lots of people in the U.S. are behind bars:
Some startling statistics (and stories) in this
Of interest, this:
Making a false statement to a federal official is an offence. So is lying to someone who then repeats your lie to a federal official.
That would seem to imply that all lying is effectively illegal since any lie
could be repeated to a federal official. When did this become part of the law?
Also, looking at the numbers, 1% of the adult population
is behind bars. One percent! That's got to be a drag on the economy.
And they aren't figured into unemployment figures, I'll wager. Meaning it's 1% higher if you count people in prison.
