Will The Justice Department’s Decision To End Private Prisons Help Children?

States all over the country accept solicitations from private prisons, including to house kids. Some of these facilities are notorious boot camps, where kids have been beaten up, stomped on the chest, or even died. In 2001, a 14-year-old died at a “tough love” private facility. When that child’s death was investigated, officials noted horrible bruises on the other kids. Even Sheriff Arpaio observed that “these kids didn’t get bruises falling off a platform.”

One girl told reporters, “These bruises on my arm are from Sgt. Fontenot punching me, and these on my legs are from him kicking me.” Another child reported, “They were bringing kids over there and making them lay on their backs and pouring mud down their throats and stomping on their chests with the heel of their boot.”

In response, one of the officials claimed, “we aren’t doing anything out there that’s not approved by the kids and their parents.”

By the time of Tony Haynes’ death, several other children had died in private boot camp facilities. The record of medical neglect at private facilities that service children is lengthy, but so are charges of sexual abuse, physical batteries, and threats.

One special report exposes what simply amounts to inhumane treatment, cruelty, and torture of children at private jail facilities. Despite the Eighth Amendment outlawing cruel and unusual treatment, many of the children caught in the grasps of these facilities have been overlooked. The companies often underpay their workers, provide inadequate training, and are alleged to forge records. When a child and a guard disagree about an allegation of abuse, the file is closed as “inconclusive.” About seventy-five percent of cases close in that matter.

The federal government has taken a first step toward reform, but more is needed. If incarcerated adults deserve better facilities and more humane treatment, so too do children.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
