Brutal, racist, Richmond jail

Mistreatment at the Richmond jail? There is none, the Sheriff’s Office concluded. No one is being locked for hours on end in their toilet-less rooms, unable to access the hallway restrooms. No one has to urinate or defecate in red biodegradable bags.

“Nearly all of the complaints were unfounded and unsubstantiated,” Sheriff David Livingston said in a statement released on Dec. 22.

But, here’s the thing. The San Francisco Chronicle is correct in observing that there’s an obvious conflict of interest when an office investigates itself.

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 West County Detention Facility.

So naturally they lied to keep the money. Enjoy your police state.
