Dr. Dawg has an appalling list of people the Department of Homeland Security has all but personally murdered over the last few years. This is what our government is doing to keep us “secure:”
Hiu Lui Ng died in agony last Wednesday, under guard in a Rhode Island hospital. He had terminal cancer, which had spread to his bones, liver and lungs. He had a fractured spine. His captors, working for the Department of Homeland Security, claimed for months that he had been faking it.
His hideous crime was overstaying a visitor’s visa. He applied for asylum and was denied. This man had a wife and children. He wasn’t a fucking terrorist, but our government defines as a threat to national security anyone not born in the right zip code with the correct political views.
When American history books are updated, this era will go down as the darkest, most shameful failure of justice, democracy, and decency since this country’s birth. We don’t know a fraction of the evil that’s been done.
I’ve been angry with my country before. I’ve been embarrassed at some of its more bone-headed blunders. But I’ve never been so ashamed as I am now.
