Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Melissa McEwan @ Shakesville:

Prosecutors say [Marcus Huffman] was on patrol March 18 when he met the woman after she was turned away from a club because she appeared intoxicated. Huffman is accused of offering her a ride, driving her to the substation and raping her.

Special Assistant Attorney General Erik Wallin said prosecutors have a video showing Huffman entering the substation with the woman, then leaving separately before the woman did.

In addition, prosecutors say they have recovered Huffman’s semen from the woman’s boxer shorts.

The 19-old-woman then went to a relative’s home where she called 911 to report the rape. Among the three officers who responded was Officer Marcus Huffman.

He was also the senior officer handling the complaint, and, according to RI Attorney General spokesman Michael Healey, “He later filed a report which we allege failed to include important facts, among which were any mention of the incident involving him and the victim.”

Anal rape as an instrument of US interrogation

Glenn Greenwald quoting from The Age (Australia):

David Hicks told his family when they visited him at Guantanamo Bay in 2004 that he had been anally assaulted during interrogation by the US in Afghanistan while he was hooded and restrained.

Anyone okay with this? Anyone? Bueller?
