Back in September S&R pointed everyone to the story of Thomas Wierdsma. We began that piece this way:
Let’s see, what have we here? Private prison corporation executives: check. Abusive husband: check. Witness tampering: check. Threats to use political clout to have abused spouse deported if she doesn’t keep her mouth shut about being slapped around: check.
We’re used to hearing stories of appalling corruption and thuggery all the time, but this one was especially galling (especially considering the plight of his abused wife).
Review that story, then watch this video.
What a piece of work, huh?
