«Now I saw what was going on in there — wrote Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter. – Problems not only in children at all. People drink from toilets, the officers laughing before members of Congress. I reported it to their superiors, and I was told that the officers «are in a state of stress and relax sometimes».
After I forced myself into a cell w/ women&began speaking to them, one of them described their treatment at the hands of officers as “psychological warfare” — waking them at odd hours for no reason, calling them wh*res, etc.
Tell me what about that is due to a “lack of funding?”
