“It is the government’s contention that the judges’ decisions to send juveniles to PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care were motivated by their business dealings with the center’s owner, identified in court records as Participant No. 1, and the center’s builder, identified in court records as Participant No. 2.”

In Bush’s version of America would this be rewarded?

You’d think there would be a general public outcry against privatizing prisons and other detention facilities in the wake of this scam, but, if there has been, I haven’t heard about it.

Judges sending thousands of kids to jail to get a kickback? As Mark Twain said, “It’s no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.” I doubt even a Hollywood scriptwriter would come up with something this demented.

I don’t believe in the death penalty but, if I did, these two ‘judges’ would be at the head of the line.

Ths is why H.L. Mencken chuckled whenever someone said “Your honor” in a courtroom.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
