Stop celebrating thieves and demonizing patriots By:
John McCain must be pleased. US Marshals have arrested two Turkish men living in the US and charged them in the vicious beating of opponents of the Turkish regime who had been peacefully protesting outside the Turkish embassy in Washington last month.
The Turkish government blamed the US government and the DC police for failing to corral the protesters. Last week, the House passed a bill officially condemning the attack. Yildirim, a year-old construction company owner from New Jersey, faces charges of assault with significant bodily injury and aggravated assault.
Narin, from Virginia, faces an aggravated assault charge, according to the Daily Caller. Erdogan has in recent years cracked down on the PKK, or Kurdistan Workers Party, a group that has for years waged an insurgent campaign of violence in Turkey.
And some of those attacked were women, including one who was allegedly beaten by the two men.
Lucy Usoyan, the woman kicked and stomped by Yildirim, Narin and other Erdogan supporters, told TheDC that she went to the hospital where she was diagnosed with head trauma.
Narin, who was first identified by The New York Times last month, acknowledged to the newspaper that he kicked Usoyan. But he claimed that he thought that Usoyan was a man.
Usoyan, a Kurdish activist, said that she feared for her life during the assault. She also said that her doctor told her she would need six weeks to fully recover from the beating.
Erdogan can be seen watching the confrontation from a black Mercedes SUV. The president, who was in town meeting with US President Donald Trump, had just narrowly won a referendum vote granting him sweeping executive powers. The Daily Caller noted that Erdogan might have ordered the assault, according to audio recordings taken during the confrontation.
The video shows men in suits, apparently bodyguards and supporters of Erdogan, punching and kicking the protesters as the police tried to intervene.
At one point, a man threw a bullhorn, two men could be seen bleeding from the head, and another man was on the ground being violently kicked. While the two men arrested live in the US, the US government could try to punish the Turks another way, including through diplomatic channels.
At least two lawmakers have called on the U. Still, the annual corrections budget has continued to increase, with current costs now double what they were in Part of the answer, at least, comes down to prison unions.
Nichol Gomez, spokeswoman for the California Correctional Peace Officers Association Union, says the extra funds are needed for special programming.
California Department of Finance spokesman H. What Palmer and Gomez are describing is consistent with a trend in recent years that has states investing more money in reform and rehabilitation than in prisons themselves. The main players in the treatment-industrial complex are the very same ones involved in the for-profit prison industry.
They are corporations like GEO Group, the second-largest private correctional facilities provider in the U. In recent years, they have strategically shifted their focus toward prison alternatives.
As the AFSC reports: California alone houses 23 of these sites, the most of any state. As Politico reported last March, California is one of 25 states that contracts some or all of their correctional health care to private companies.
As Michelle Chen of The Nation writes: Even if prisons were to be shut down, the treatment-industrial complex indicates that the next iteration of for-profit prison institutions is already here, and they are already taking our money.

My position according to Trump's behavior and cabinet selection is that he is aware of this agenda and is playing along. That said, there is another important issue to consider — the participation of the ignorant in helping the Ponzi con-game continue.
There is a famous investor's anecdote from Joe Kennedy, the father of John F. Kennedy, about the onset of the Great Depression — he relates that one day, just before the crash ofa shoe shine boy tried to give him stock tips.
He realized at that moment that when the shoe shiner is offering market tips the market is too popular for its own good. I don't know that this story is true, but if it is, it is an interesting example of peak economic delusion.
We do not have quite the same investment environment as existed in those days. Today, algorithmic computers dominate the functions of the stock market, chasing headlines and each other, but this does not and will not save the economy from another depression.
