As I’ve exhorted every time the topic has come up these past weeks: we are breaking thousands of children. Thiago’s story is every single imprisoned kid’s. Irrevocably harmed. We’re guilty.
Look at the glee expressed by the attendees. Like the guy pictured in the thumbnail in the blue shirt– he literally dances through his insults of protesters. He dances up and away.

My dad sent this to me, and then both Coke Talk and Rob Delaney posted it, so there are my stupid two cents, dumb Brian, stupid
