ANOTHER RANKING OKLAHOMA DOES NOT WANT
Oklahoma prisons are overcrowded, and that is partially due to the rate of incarceration in the state, which is number 2 in the country. Another ranking that reflects on the system is the rate of suicides. The rate of suicides in Oklahoma is among the worst in the nation, and might be attributed to a break down in the criminal justice as well as the mental health system. Legislators have been at work to remedy these problems, by defining crimes differently and trying to get offenders into programs that provide helpful mental healthcare services.
