Asking Inmates About Gangs Would Be Profiling

Instead they just assign them to cells randomly. OK, not randomly, exactly. “Unexpectedly,” there was a murder. Inmate beaten to death with soap-filled sock half hour after he was put in cell with rival gang member: prosecutors.

An inmate beaten to death last weekend at Cook County Jail suffered injuries so severe, they were similar to those of a person who had been involved in a car crash, Cook County prosecutors said in court Thursday.

AS for info on gangs…

Asked if inmates are still asked about gang ties when they enter the jail, a sheriff’s spokesman said, “we do have a gang intelligence unit in the jail and we monitor gang activity and affiliations.”

So that would be, “No.” I’m guessing that this “gang activity” wasn’t monitored as closely as it should have been.

So do we expect people on the Left to start clamoring for Sock and Soap control? (Hat tip to Second City Cop.)
