Here are some more actual examples of government officials treating people as something less than human for no reason whatsoever:
Migrant girls being held in detention centers near the U.S.-Mexico border are “visibly” bleeding through their underwear and pants while menstruating due to a lack of access to sanitary products, according to a new lawsuit.
The suit, filed earlier this week by 19 states, challenges the Department of Homeland Security’s new regulations for detaining migrant children. A 26-page investigation included in the lawsuit found that children were living in “appalling” conditions, according to Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson.
OK, but let me know if they do something truly heinous like sending a mildly snarky tweet nobody viewed about one of the detainees.
