Just as predicted; I’m only surprised the story isn’t that the child was abused by an ICE employee.

Obligatory gif expressing my extreme vexation at this repugnant and inhumane fuckery:

You got the pamphlets as well? Would be a hell of a mid-term upset.

Sorry, coping mechanism.

Who could’ve guessed that denying some of the world’s most vulnerable people of all legal rights while simultaneously removing all accountability from the people in charge of detaining them would have led to this kind of horrific abuse?

We do what we can to get by; if we don’t laugh, we’ll cry… and the crying might never stop.

(For what it’s worth, it doesn’t even need to be an ‘extinction level event’ meteor; just a tiny one, maybe the size of a soccer ball, would do… especially if it lands directly on the White House.)

Maybe they “misunderstood” the orders to ensure the children are well groomed?

I suppose that “psychoeducation” is a new pseudoscience invented by the new child warehousing industry.

I was thinking on a slightly larger scale; a megaton empathy ‘bomb,’ which makes it impossible to harm someone else without feeling their pain, magnified 10x.

Nah, it’s just another term for making the victim take responsibility for the behavior of the perp, and “gaslighting” would be too obvious a term to use, after all.

If she had known her “Good Touch / Bad Touch” -before- being kidnapped then it wouldn’t have happened, and wouldn’t be her fault, would it? /s

This. I want to do to them what Eragon did to Galbatorix: make them understand and experience all the suffering they’ve caused.

I really don’t like this. I liked for attention.

I’m with @Melz2 in simply being outraged for the predictability of this.
