Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on American Furies: Crime, Punishment, and Vengeance in the Age of Mass Imprisonment. It needs to be at least 1500 words.There is increasing number of persons in the penal colony of United States which is surprisingly seven times higher compared to Western Europe and most of whom came from vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the communities (Western & Loury, 2011). Research pointed that about 1/3 of black American youths who dropped schools are behind bars and bared that those born from 1965, about 20% thereof are imprisoned. Sociologists said that this imprisonment rate pattern is dubbed “mass incarceration”, a phenomenon of imprisonment that is incomparably high and has strong impact to society, economy and to social justice especially on matters focused on state’s crime control and jailed person’s rehabilitation (Austin, Bruce, Carroll, McCall, Richards, 2000).

Rose et. al (2009) further stated that for Afro American, the ratio of imprisoned persons is 1:15 black person and 1:36 Hispanic American or about 300% than the white American.

The Hispanics composed 18.26% while the black got the largest ethnicity with 43.91% of incarcerated population of persons.
