It has been said our judicial system has double standards. It has been put out there that some of our prison workers treat certain prisoners worse then others. Well recently, two workers were arrested for cruelty and conspiracy for inhumane treatment to some prisoners. Investigators found several inmates handcuffed and left to listen to a loud song recording for hours. The song was put on repeat and blared loudly.
The song … Baby Shark!
Eegads … the horror.
The prosecutor commented he wished there were felony charges, for misdemeanors seemed too light of a punishment for the workers.
Now, don’t think I’m soft here. I know the torture it may have seemed like. But if you arrest them, don’t you need too arrest every two year old in America who yells and screams and throws their tantrums to here that tune? When my kid did it, it was for Barney’s the song …
I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family.
With a great big hug and kiss from me to you,
won’t you say you love me too?
Get the handcuffs for my son, he tortured me with that song. Some days, water boarding would’ve been easier to get through.
So I understand the trauma and drama. But being charged? I shake my head at times. Maybe we do need to get more aggressive on judicial reform.
No real lesson put forth here (though there are some). I just put this out there for your amusement.
