Ultra-Quickies: Awakening In Progress?

     As a rule, we can rely on the major media to back essentially any claim made by the Democrats about the eeeeevil Republicans, especially the eeeeevilest of all, President Donald Trump. But it appears that this rule just might be sprouting exceptions:

     Immigrant children as young as 14 housed at a juvenile detention center in Virginia say they were beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells.

     The abuse claims against the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center near Staunton, Virginia, are detailed in federal court filings that include a half-dozen sworn statements from Latino teens jailed there for months or years. Multiple detainees say the guards stripped them of their clothes and strapped them to chairs with bags placed over their heads…

     The complaint filed by the nonprofit Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs recounts the story of an unnamed 17-year-old Mexican citizen apprehended at the southern border. The teen fled an abusive father and violence fueled by drug cartels to seek asylum in the United States in 2015.

     After stops at facilities in Texas and New York, he was transferred to Shenandoah in April 2016 and diagnosed during an initial screening by a psychologist with three mental disorders, including depression. Besides weekly sessions speaking with a counselor, the lawsuit alleges the teen has received no further mental health treatment, such as medications that might help regulate his moods and behavior.

     See also the video embedded in this article in which a CNN reporter dares to ask a Democrat Senator whether she was outraged about the treatment of illegal alien children during the Obama Administration, when it actually occurred.
