Prison population to hit 10,000

If the current growth trends hold steady, Catalonia's prison
population will exceed 10,000 by the end of 2008.
Currently, Catalonia's prisons are holding 9,845 inmates, according to
a study by the Departament de Justícia, up 4.78% since the end of
2007. The population of Catalonia increased 1.06% in that same period.
Of the total, 22.7% are in preventative custody awaiting trail, the
highest proportion in a decade. (Full story in printed edition).

There's a lot of people who thinks that the most of the crimianals living in Catalonia are from other contries. However, I disagree with that opinion. Reading this article, we can see that the growth of inmates in prison isn't proportional with the growth of the Catalan population. So, the immigrants are not the reason of that problem.

It can be a seriuos problem in the future if te current growhtcontinue uping. Becouse the prisons haven't got enough space for the inmates, and this people can't stay in the street. If we not find solutions, the crime will uo in Catalonia.

Well, I decide to coment this article because I think that the number of inmates increases each year, and it will becomes a problem for the poblation and his inhabitants. 1'06% apperently a small number but if this 1'06% means the percent of the inmates that have increased since the end of 2007, then no, then "1'06" becomes a big number. It means that each year the violence increase in Catalonia. I think that this artical is good because always is good to know the problems that here are in your city, and in this way, people perhaps try to find a solution for these problems.
