LAND OF THE FREE?

Politicians in the USA like to depict America as the epitome of freedom and democracy and sneer at the repressive measures of totalitarian states, but their boasts are ill-founded.

The numbers continue to climb each year as more prisons are built nationwide." (CNN News, 2 April) RD
