A Harrowing Human Rights story –
Elderly Prisoner rates soar in USA …
Aharrowing story came in today from the Human Rights news feed about the US’s soaring rates of prisoners over 55 years of age.

To read full story please click here.

This story paints a picture since 2007 where the rate of increase is 94 times that or other demographics.   It contains a link to a 104 page Report titled:

This is valuable reading to help understand the plight of the aging in scenarios where there is no one to take care of them.
