    c treatment of pre-trial inmates. As happy I am about this I wonder why it took outright round-ups of brown folks to get the DoJ civil rights division to go this far.

      They've been investigating for over a year, so it must have started about 6 months after Obama took office, or maybe 5 months after Holder was confirmed.

      Why didn't they act during the Bush administration? One wonders.

    •  I read about 50 words scattered down the page (0+ / 0-)

      and retched.

      I really hate it that this evil man is only getting nibbled at with mealy-mouthed phrases like "might lose federal funding" and "overstepped his authority." I cringe at the thought that thousands of hours of investigation by the DoJ is required just to nip at this bastard's knees.

      Are we really powerless against the baddest of the bad in this country now?

      I'm stopped cold when I realize that those who control our destiny would let us die for their profit, or even for their convenience.
