If Even a Third of This Is Accurate, It’s Enough to Throw American Officials in the Hague – Esquire

Do I really have to explain? Do I really have to explain that, even if a third of this whistleblower's account is accurate, it's enough to throw American officials into a cell at the Hague? Do I really have to explain that this should be the lead story in every newspaper and on every newscast in the country, and that it would be if we weren't so benumbed by four years of being led toward perdition by a vulgar talking yam? From the BBC:

And do I really have to explain (again) that private prisons are a terrible idea? And that allowing a rogue federal agency to operate within a private prison is like setting a fire in a Minuteman silo?

Good god. Now, it is true that this is one report from a network of advocacy groups and that it should be "reported out" as thoroughly as is possible. But it's not as though ICE doesn't have a track record that would make these kind of atrocities more than plausible. This isn't even the first report of inmate abuse from this single facility. From Capital and Main:

The Georgia branch of the ACLU already has issued one report detailing alleged abuses at the Stewart facility, and now this report comes along. I don't want to believe this story. Nobody wants to believe this story. But that's no reason not to believe this story, nor to act amazed and appalled if and when, one day, we find out it was even worse than we imagined.
