Child Immigrant Prisons Are Just Abuse Factories

[TRIGGER WARNING: CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE, GENERAL ABUSE]

People have not stopped digging up horrible shit about these prison camps. It might not be on CNN anymore but that doesn't mean it's all better.

A State Report Says Severe Treatment of Teens at a Virginia Detention Center Was Not Abuse

A review issued by the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice on Monday found that the severe treatment of immigrant teenagers held in a Virginia detention center does not amount to abuse under Virginia law. 
The report, obtained by the Associated Press, concluded that the "restraint techniques" used by the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center "did not meet the legal definition of abuse or neglect."
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam ordered the review in June after the AP published first-hand accounts of teenagers describing being shackled, beaten, and stripped naked at the facility. In November of 2017, a class-action lawsuit brought by Latinx teenagers held in the facility included sworn statements that alleged that this treatment occurred between 2015 and 2018, under both the Trump and Obama administrations. Some of the children were as young as 14.

This is why we want to abolish prisons. And smash the state. This is "justice" in the great US of A.
