Feds to probe abuse allegations at Florida women’s prison | Miami Herald
The U.S. Department of Justice has opened a federal civil rights investigation into sexual misconduct by correctional officers as well as other abuses against women at Lowell Correctional Institution in Central Florida.
The investigation comes after years of complaints by inmates and activists, who organized in the aftermath of a 2015 Miami Herald investigation, “Beyond Punishment.’’ The series included interviews with more than three dozen former and current inmates at Lowell who described being forced to have sex with officers just to obtain basic necessities such as soap, toilet paper and sanitary napkins.

Feds are more than three years too late in showing up at Florida’s Lowell Correctional Institution.
Per the linked Miami Herald article, no stone will now be left unturned in getting to the bottom of the abuse, neglect and torture of female inmates. They’ve even invited the input of former inmates, family and friends.
If feds don’t deliver, we can’t just cry, and try to carry on. This isn’t spilt milk. This is the ugliest ugliness imaginable.
Investors are making a bloody fortune on keeping our country the Incarceration Nation by backing legislators fond of criminalizing mental illness, homelessness, minor drug possession, addiction, indebtedness, undocumented immigration, asylum seeking, etc.
And the emphasis is indeed on bloody.
Who’s to blame? For one, Joe “we do everything but hang people for jaywalking” Biden.
This would come as no surprise if our mainstream media was more concerned with reality than ratings – you would already know at least as much about any given vice president as you do any given Kardashian.
What you don’t know can kill you. Or someone you love. For jaywalking.
