#ContraCosta thug cops brutalize immigrants

Screenshot 2017-12-23 at 08.00.59The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office has completed an investigation of its own practices and announced Friday that it prevented no immigration detainees from using the bathroom and did not confine inmates to cells for 23 hours at a time.

That’s right. Brutal thug cops investigated themselves and found no wrongdoing. There you have it.

The allegations came from several of the 38 women detained at the West Contra Costa County jail in Richmond by federal immigration officials, including Dianny Patricia Menendez, who in October told reporters she would rather be deported than suffer the jail’s distressing conditions. In September, 27 women signed a letter documenting their complaints.

The Sheriff’s Office has a $6 million-a-year contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, to run the immigration detention center at the jail.

“Nearly all of the complaints were unfounded and unsubstantiated,” Sheriff David Livingston said in a statement, noting that investigators with the department interviewed 110 witnesses, using translators when necessary or listening to recordings. They also watched “hundreds of hours” of video surveillance and looked at logbooks, computer entries “and other evidence.”

In response, Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, asked state Attorney General Xavier Becerra to investigate.

On Dec. 4, Becerra said his office would look into the allegations of mistreatment at the jail. He has until March 2019 to report to state lawmakers.

At the same time, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., wrote to Thomas Homan, acting director of ICE, and asked him to investigate.

Meanwhile, the Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating itself.
