Monday Afternoon Open Thread
Looks like we're all busy at work today. What I'm reading:
- Border Corruption Probe: Agents taking bribes from smugglers.
In the past 10 months, 20 agents from Customs and Border Protection alone have been charged with a corruption-related crime. At that pace, the organization will set a new record for in-house corruption.
- Multiple rape claimsin Iran against prison guards by both male and female detained protesters.
Senior police and judiciary officials acknowledged over the weekend that opposition detainees have been abused in prison and called for those responsible to be punished, apparently in an effort to calm public outrage over the mistreatment and death of prisoners.
Here's an open thread for you, all topics welcome.
