They are concentration camps with deplorable conditions. Parents doing this to their children would be charged.

The threat following this was interesting as well.   Horrible in the richest country on earth and the land of the free!   Hugs

  1. Hi Scottie,
    I just looked at an Esquire piece (skimmed, I guess, not really read) and caught this:
    “We have what I would call a concentration camp system,” Pitzer says, “and the definition of that in my book is, mass detention of civilians without trial.”
    This is something that has been getting worse for decades, with people held in custody with unreachable bail. I guess the sitation with migrants and refugees is “just” an escalation of the drug war and jailing people while they wait for trial.

    • Hello MDavis. Yes very true. I remember the case of a poor young man who got sent to Rikers, a notorious horrible prison, for three years without a trial. Seeing no way out he killed himself. Poor people get over worked under funded public defenders who have little power. Wealthy people get fancy nice “prisons” a poor person would never see. Do you remember the teen in Texas who was the wealthy brat of a very wealthy family who while drunk ramed a company turck into a van and killed a bunch of people. He got no jail time. Hugs

      • Oh, yeah, the lawyer claimed he had affluenza or some such. Then mom took him to Acapulco, or similar while he was on probation and not allowed supposed to leave even the state. Someone noticed that they were missing and tracked them down. Did he go to jail for violating probation? No. Did she go to jail for helping him violate his probation? Of course not – no jail, no fine, nothing, I don’t know what they slipped the judge to get a favorable decision, but I bet there was something.
