Starving To Death

It’s as if they don’t exist.  But they do.  It started out with thousands about July 8th, but there are still over 200 who haven’t eaten.  For 30 days or more.

The more curious thing is how little anyone is paying attention here.  There’s an article here and there, but you would think on slow news days they might report this rather dramatic prison hunger strike in the largest state in the United States, rather than, say, the latest public relations effort by the local police department.

There are lots of newsworthy events that editors decide are not news and don’t cover.  It’s a deceptively large part of the problem.
