The Deep State Takes Care of Its Own   2 comments

“You have to trust the government,” Justice Department attorney Richard Roberts unctuously told Jesse Trentadue. Seeking to understand why his younger brother Kenneth had died while in federal custody, Jesse, a trial attorney in Salt Lake City, had asked to see the findings of a federal grand jury investigation of the case.

In an incandescent response to Roberts’s patronizing dismissal, Trentadue reminded the Justice Department functionary that the proper relationship between citizens and the government is not one of “trust,” but rather of “accountability from that government to the citizens.”

  1. You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn exactly how many Jailhouse deaths or “suicides” there are here in OK. And you don’t ever hear anything about them in the news. The Jail is under investigation at this time as well as one prison. This was a very good article!


    • They happen all the time here in Alaska too. They didn’t used to. Our jails here were once considered one of the best places to be incarcerated — rapes and murders by other inmates were rare … and we’re told by the guys we met through our church’s jail ministry that those were almost always deserved … someone who was aggressing on the one who killed them. But something has changed in the last decade. I first became aware of it when Israel Keys “hanged himself”. He was a serial killer who deserved to die, but anyone familiar with our prison system knew there was no way he could hang himself in Ad Seg. But we’re all supposed to pretend we don’t know that. Now it’s happening to drunks in the drunk tank and the uninformed public is starting to take notice.
